American Express Pulls Gift Cards From New Jersey Stores

A new regulation in New Jersey will require sellers of gift cards to record the ZIP code of everyone who buys a card, because the state thinks a revision to its unclaimed property laws allow it to claim the value of any unredeemed gift cards after two years. So rather than deal with all the possible hassles involved with this change, American Express has simply pulled all its gift cards from retail locations in the Garden State.

New Jersey. Home of some of the greatest mobsters in the world, who figure out how to steal, cheat, scam, skim, bribe, and rip off everyone in their vicinity, with ever greater schemes and irresistable power and authority. Some people call them "legislators". I call them what they REALLY are. And sign my name, too.
