Georgia Gift Card Law

Last updated on April 08, 2011


What we like:

  • Georgia offers a consumer-centric gift card law webpage
  • Georgia has legally defined the notion of a gift card
  • Georgia has legally specified whether or not gift cards escheat to the state
  • Any fees or expiration dates must be printed on the card or a sticker attached to the card.

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
  • Value will escheat to state after 5 years

Heads up! ScripSmart attempts to make all information accurate. ScripSmart is only a guideline and does not provide definitive statements of the law. If you have questions about the law's application to a particular case, direct them to a specialist.
