The fee is legal in all states. Yes the prepaid card will come with a fee starting in 6 months. Sometimes it is $3 per month thereafter, and sometimes the card and full remaining balance simply expire and are no longer usable. Drain the gift card within 6 months and you won't pay the fees.
your just wrong.. many states do not allow fees on rebate cards or gift cards for years if at all before they can start charging a fee. just because something is in the terms does not mean its legal in a particular state.
my suggestion anyway is just use square or something like that.. it will cost you a few cents but put it in your checking account for you. no worries.
