Oregon Gift Card Law

Last updated on November 22, 2013


What we like:

  • No expiration dates or post-sale fees allowed
  • Gift cards are redeemable for cash if value is $4.99 or less
  • Oregon offers a consumer-centric gift card law webpage
  • Oregon has legally defined the notion of a gift card
  • Oregon has legally specified whether or not gift cards escheat to the state
  • Any expiration must be shown in at least 10-point type, with the words "EXPIRES ON" or "EXPIRATION DATE" followed by the date

What could be better:

  • Gift card escheatment details are not specified
