What we like:

  • No expiration dates or post-sale fees allowed
  • Gift cards are redeemable for cash if value is $4.99 or less
  • Montana offers a consumer-centric gift card law webpage
  • Montana has legally defined the notion of a gift card
  • Montana has legally specified whether or not gift cards escheat to the state

What could be better:

  • After 3 years from purchase date, the value will escheat to the state on December 31st
