Gift Card Ratings

Alaska Gift Card Law

Last updated on January 03, 2011


What we like:

  • Only cards with an expiration date escheat to the State of Alaska after 3 years
  • Alaska has legally defined the notion of a gift card
  • Alaska 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
  • Alaska does not maintain a consumer-centric web page dedicated to gift card laws
