Gift Card Ratings

Wisconsin Gift Card Law

Last updated on January 19, 2011


What we like:

  • Gift cards do not escheat to the State of Wisconsin
  • Wisconsin 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
  • Wisconsin does not maintain a consumer-centric web page dedicated to gift card laws
