Gift Card Ratings

Nevada Gift Card Law

Last updated on March 14, 2011


What we like:

  • Nevada has legally defined the notion of a gift card
  • Nevada has legally specified whether or not gift cards escheat to the state
  • Any expiration date or fees must be printed plainly and conspicuously on the front or back of the instrument or record. An expiration date may be excluded if a toll free number is printed on the card. All notices must be at least 10 point font.

What could be better:

  • No limits on expiration dates
  • A $1.00 monthly fee may be charged 1 year after date of purchase.
  • Merchants are not required to give cash back
  • Value will escheat to the state when the gift card expires
  • Nevada does not maintain a consumer-centric web page dedicated to gift card laws
