Connecticut Gift Card Law

Last updated on July 21, 2011


What we like:

  • No expiration dates or post-sale fees allowed
  • Gift cards do not escheat to the State of Connecticut
  • Connecticut offers a consumer-centric gift card law webpage
  • Connecticut has legally defined the notion of a gift card
  • Connecticut has legally specified whether or not gift cards escheat to the state

What could be better:

  • Merchants are not required to give cash back
