When you order a gift card, you will receive an email that contains your unique gift card code that you or the person you are gifting to can use at checkout to redeem its value.
When making a purchase in our store, you can redeem the value of a gift card by entering its unique code at checkout. This code isn't case-sensitive. A gift card holds a balance, which can be spent over more than one order. Gift card balances are applied to the total value of an order, which can include taxes and shipping.
During checkout, you can check the gift card option to indicate that you want to enter a gift card code for payment.
When you redeem a gift card, the checkout displays one of the following options:
If the balance available on the gift card is greater than or equal to the order total, then you can click Complete order.
If the balance available on the gift card is less than the order total, then you are prompted to choose a second payment method for the balance before placing the order.
If you are buying to buy a gift card for someone else, then you need to forward the gift card email to the recipient. You can download Apple Wallet Passes to your iOS device from the notification email that you receive when you buy a gift card. Emailed gift cards will include an Add to Apple Wallet button. You can click the button to open the gift card automatically in Apple Wallet.
