Redeem a Gift Card

Once applied to your Amazon account, the entire amount will be added to your gift card balance. Your gift card balance will be applied automatically to eligible orders during the checkout process and when using 1-Click. If you don't want to use your gift card balance on your order, you can unselect it as a payment method in checkout.

Need to redeem a gift card?

  1. Locate the claim code.

    Note: For plastic gift cards, you may need to scratch off the coating on the back of the card to reveal the claim code. The claim code isn't the 16-digit card number.

  2. Go to Your Account.
  3. Click Apply a Gift Card to Your Account .
  4. Enter your claim code and click Apply to Your Balance.

    Note: You can also enter your claim code during checkout. You won't be able to redeem your gift card using the Amazon.com 1-Click service unless you redeem the gift card funds to Your Account first.

Note: If your order total is more than your gift card funds, the extra can be paid for by credit card.
