Finding the perfect gift can be tough. Which is exactly why we offer gift cards. They make great presents for relatives and friends, and are a fantastic way to thank someone special. They're always the right size and color, too. We can mail the gift card to you or the intended recipient. Just enter the appropriate address in the "Ship To" field during checkout. Park Ave Bike Gift Cards do not expire or loose value over time. Awhile back, we did have a glitch with the company that does our gift card processing. The processor was charging a inactivity fee by deducting $2 per month from the card value if the card was not used for over 1 year. Rest assured that we have corrected that issue and we will gladly credit any gift card that has lost value due to the inactivity fee.
I bought one for [$] 3 years ago and noticed the value was less when I redeemed it. The guys at Park Ave were great; they explained to me that the gift card processor not Park Ave takes one or two dollars a month off the card if it is'nt used for over 2 years. They were able to reinstate the full value on the card. I made my purchase and have used them as gifts a couple times.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
The gift card doesn't expire, but they charge a monthly fee for "maintenance" and they don't tell you that anywhere on the card or when you purchase it, so if you don't use it for awhile, it could be worth nothing. I had this happen on a card that I was given as a gift, but I wasn't ready to buy a new bike at that time (due to a medical condition). By the time I went to use it the value was nothing.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
