Kentucky Gift Card Law

Last updated on February 07, 2011


What we like:

  • Post-sale fees not allowed
  • Kentucky has legally defined the notion of a gift card

What could be better:

  • Gift cards may expire 1 year from purchase date
  • Merchants are not required to give cash back
  • Gift card escheatment details are not specified
  • Kentucky does not maintain a consumer-centric web page dedicated to gift card laws

Heads up! ScripSmart attempts to make all information accurate. ScripSmart is only a guideline and does not provide definitive statements of the law. If you have questions about the law's application to a particular case, direct them to a specialist.
