Default Re: Coupon code expiration in California

Wow. I really appreciate all the responses!

What I have isn't a purchased gift certificate, but might be considered a promotional coupon. I charged a certain number of purchases to my Amex card within a certain time frame, and received a membership reward because of it. It's just a piece of paper (not a card) that says Dell Inc. certificate. At the bottom is has a Dell coupon code, with the expiration date. A certificate number is below that.

Again, I appreciate your discussion!

Which was issued in another state. Lets approach this logically for you. If expired coupons were accepted by CA law, there would be a major marketing place obtaining them from other states to sell to Californians. Further, no company would issue offers to customers in CA such as you mentioned. In other words, you gave nothing of value for it, so it is not protected or treated as a gift card or gift certificate. What you have is an expired offer code.

I still am not sure what the final answer is here, in California, for sure.

But I have 4 year old coupons that I would love to use right now--for all sorts of interesting reasons.

That seems very weird to me that they would still be valid.
How could the business ever control that situation.
They would always be wondering what may still come in, 10 years later.
