We had a store card that did this in the past, the fee period was 6 months so if you used it 1 time, you got another 6 months before the next fee. It's best to check the fine print for the specifics or call the phone# on the card just the make sure. I don't buy VISA GC's due to the high fees. Hurts to spend money just to change the form to "plastic" money. They stated you're better off writing a check as a gift since there's usually no fees involved.
