Any amount can be loaded onto Chuck E. Cheese’s gift cards, and as part of their terms and conditions, there are no expiration dates or service/reactivation fees for unused card balances.

If parents would like to purchase other small gifts for their children while in stores, Chuck E. Cheese’s Holiday Stockings, made to hold tokens and gift cards, are also available for purchase at all Chuck E. Cheese’s store locations for $1.99 while supplies last.
