South Dakota Gift Card Law

Last updated on March 15, 2011


What we like:

  • South Dakota has legally specified whether or not gift cards escheat to the state

What could be better:

  • No limits on expiration dates
  • No maximum post-sale fee or minimum time frame before charging monthly fees
  • Merchants are not required to give cash back
  • No legal definition of a gift card or gift certificate
  • Value will escheat to state after 5 years
  • South Dakota does not maintain a consumer-centric web page dedicated to gift card laws
