New York Comptroller Says Check Gift Card Fine Print
New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli is reminding New Yorkers to read the fine print on gift cards they may have received over the holidays.
The Comptroller says while some sellers have eliminated inactivity fee, there may be some charges attached to the gift cards that are not apparent.
DiNapoli says some important information about fees and expiration dates may be found in the fine print on the cards.
He also reminds recipients that in some cases, if some gift cards aren’t used in a timely manner, the money could get turned over to the state’s Office of Unclaimed Funds.
