Hess gift cards can be purchased online through the Hess Express website. Once purchased, the gift card can be mailed directly to the chosen recipient, ready for use. The gift cards do not come directly from Hess but rather from a third-party gift card retailer.
Hess gift cards can be used to purchase any merchandise available in Hess retail locations, including gas. A minimum of $25 dollars is required to purchase a gift card, with a maximum monetary value of $250. As of August 2015, Hess has over 1,360 stores nationwide, all of which accept gift cards. It is possible to personalize the gift card specifically for the recipient.
