Gift cards are getting to be one of the hottest going gifts for any occasion and with this being the holiday season and all you can bet they will be flying off the racks.

As we spend billions on these little beauties, they like anything else have their pitfalls :fees!

Now, not all of them do but the general use type gift card like the Mastercard or Visa will possibly have fees attached and range from $3.00 to $7.00, also after the firist year if the cards aren't used you could see a $3.00 a month inactivity fee.

One final note on these if you register the cards at least two-thirds mentioned they would replace lost or stolen cards, so you might think about doing that for peace of mind. You can find more information on theses at  For more information on these at BankRate.com.
