Cashing In on Old Gift Cards

By  | 

Did you find an old expired gift card and you’re mad you didn’t use it?
It could still be worth some money.

The NRF estimates $26 billion will be spent on gift cards this year and eight billion of that money will never be redeemed. So if you find a gift card from years ago, its not worthless. You can claim its value through the Colorado State Treasury Unclaimed Property Program.

The gift card's value must be $25 or more, and the card must be at least five years old. Currently there is $6 Million worth of unclaimed gift cards sitting in the states vault waiting for you to pick it up.
