Can You Get Cash Back for Your MAC Cosmetics Gift Card?

The official policy of MAC Cosmetics is that they don’t redeem gift cards for cash unless the state they operate in requires it by law. Some states have a cash back policy that makes it obligatory for the companies to issue gift card reimbursements to their customers. The only catch is that the balance on your gift card mustn’t exceed a certain amount (predetermined by state laws).

You can get your money back from your gift card if you live in Puerto Rico or any of the following states:

  • Connecticut
  • Colorado
  • California
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Montana
  • New Jersey
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont
  • Washington
