- Gift Card Information
1.1 The Gift Card is a prepaid card and should be treated just like cash in a wallet or purse. Unless the Gift Card is registered at [www.yasmall.ae (the “website”), it cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. If the Gift Card is not registered and you lose the Gift Card or it is stolen, you will lose any funds held on the Gift Card just as if you lost your wallet or purse. (Subject to clause 3 below.)
1.2 The Gift Card can only be used in the retail outlets located in YAS Mall (the “Location”) and any other facilities as may be designated from time to time by the Mall.
1.3 The Gift Card is not a debit, credit or charge card. It cannot be used to obtain cash via any ATM machine or over any counter (without prejudice to clause 4 “Redeeming Unspent Funds”). There is no credit line associated with the Gift Card. The Gift Card cannot be topped up or reloaded.
1.4 The security code is used only to obtain information on-line or by telephone and to register online. You are required to keep the Gift Card and the numbers on it safe and secure for the user's own personal use. Any misuse by a third party will be at your risk (see also clause 3 below).
1.5 When purchasing the Gift Card, the purchaser must pay the one-off Cost of the Card (see the Summary Box below) and purchase an amount between AED100 and AED 3500 to be loaded to the Gift Card. The currency of the Gift Card is AED.
1.6 It is expected that the Gift Card may be used at any retail outlet in the Location; but you specifically agree that the Issuer will not be liable if you cannot use the Gift Card in any specific retail outlet in the Location. Additionally, the Issuer cannot guarantee that the Mall who has agreed to accept the Gift Card will continue to accept the Gift Card.
1.7 The Gift Card will be valid for 12 months from its date of purchase (the “Card Validity Period”) or until all the value stored on your Gift Card has been deducted, whichever occurs earlier. After the Card Validity Period ends, the Gift Card may not be used except in accordance with clause 4 and the terms stated in the summary box included herein.
- Using the Gift Card
2.1 The Gift Card is available for purchase at such designated outlets as may be advertised by the Issuer or the Mall from time to time.
2.2 The purchaser should provide the security code personally, securely and confidentially to the user. The security code is printed inside the Gift Card package.
2.3 Only the user whose signature is on the back of the card may use the Gift Card for transactions. The user must sign the Gift Card upon receipt. The Gift Card is activated immediately on purchase and can be used by the user upon signature.
2.4 The user is responsible for keeping track of the available balance on the Gift Card. To check your balance at any time or to check your previous transactions, you can go to www.yasmall.ae and follow the links to Gift Cards. Sign in using your 16 digit card number and security code. You can also check your balance by calling 800 YASMALL (fees apply).
2.5 At the time of each transaction on the Gift Card, there must be enough value stored on the Gift Card to pay for the transaction. Transactions that exceed the remaining Gift Card balance are prohibited and will be declined at the point of sale. In addition a Decline Fee (as stated in the summary box included herein) shall apply each time a transaction is declined for any reason whatsoever. However, if accepted by the Mall, the amount that exceeds the remaining Gift Card balance can be paid using a different payment method provided that the Gift Card is charged only an amount equivalent to the amount loaded onto or remaining on the Gift Card. The Issuer cannot guarantee the acceptance of a different payment method by the Program Manager in the circumstances described in this clause 2.5.
2.6 You agree that the value stored on the Gift Card will be reduced by the value of all purchases made at any retail outlet in the Location that are authorized by you. Transactions are authorized by you when you:
- swipe your Gift Card or allow an operator or other person to do so, at an electronic point of sale terminal at any retail outlet in the Location; or
- give any retail outlet in the Location the details of the Gift Card and authorize the transaction in some other way approved by the Program Manager.
2.7 When you authorize a transaction:
- you are confirming that the transaction correctly represents the purchase price of the goods or services obtained; and
- you are agreeing to pay the amount of that transaction by the reduction of the remaining Gift Card value by an amount equivalent to the purchase price of the goods or services obtained.
- Loss, Theft, Damage, Misuse
If your Gift Card is lost, stolen, damaged or misused, call immediately 800 YASMALL with your card number and security code.

Any balance then remaining will be transferred to the new Gift Card. Your Gift Card will only be reissued after a period of up to 15 business days following your request, to ensure that details of all transactions up to cancellation have been received. A Gift Card Replacement Fee of AED10 (plus replacement card courier delivery charges) will be deducted from the balance.

Redeeming Unspent Funds after Card Validity Period ends
The entire value of the Gift Card should be used before the end of the Card Validity Period of 12 months (which period shall begin immediately from the date of purchase of the Gift Card). Upon the Expiry Date, the Gift Card will become invalid for use, cannot be reactivated and all Available Funds remaining in the Gift Card shall be forfeited. However, if you contact us no later than one (1) month prior to the Expiry Date with a minimum balance of AED 26.25, you will be issued a new Gift Card (the “Replacement Card”) and your existing available Funds will be transferred to the Replacement Card with a deduction of AED 26.25 which you will be charged as a Replacement and a Reactivation Fee. For the avoidance of doubt, a Replacement Card can be issued only once, and you will not be entitled to receive any further replacement cards should the Replacement Card expire. Further, unless otherwise specifically stated in the User Guide, once the Gift Card and/or the Replacement Card have expired, the Available Funds in the Card will not be refunded to you in any form whatsoever. The funds representing the Available Funds in the Gift Card and/or the Replacement Card can be accessed by you only by performing a Transaction during the Card Validity Period.
