Contact our Customer Service Centre and your funds can be transferred to your new DXB Gift card. A replacement and reactivation fee of AED 22 will be deducted from your balance.

Please note that a monthly account maintenance fee of AED 15 will be deducted from your DXB Gift card at the end of the Grace Period, until you contact us to replace and reactivate your card.
