Rhode Island Gift Card Law

Last updated on January 05, 2012


What we like:

  • No expiration dates or post-sale fees allowed
  • Gift cards are redeemable for cash if value is $0.99 or less
  • Gift cards do not escheat to the State of Rhode Island
  • Rhode Island has legally defined the notion of a gift card
  • Rhode Island has legally specified whether or not gift cards escheat to the state

What could be better:

  • Rhode Island does not maintain a consumer-centric web page dedicated to gift card laws
