Gift Card Ratings

Arizona Gift Card Law

Last updated on September 10, 2012


What we like:

  • Gift cards do not escheat to the State of Arizona
  • Arizona has legally defined the notion of a gift card
  • Arizona has legally specified whether or not gift cards escheat to the state
  • Any expiration or fee must be clearly and conspicuously disclose.

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
  • Arizona does not maintain a consumer-centric web page dedicated to gift card laws
