There are multiple methods to finding a gift card balance. You can call the 1-800 number on the back of the gift card, you can walk into the store for which the gift card applies and have them check the balance, or in some cases, you can go online.
- Call the phone number on the back of the card
Grab your phone, and dial the 1-800 number on the back of the gift card. You'll then be asked to punch in the numbers.
- Punch in the numbers
The automated machine on the other end of the phone line will tell you to punch in a certain numerical code found on the back of the gift card. You can use your keypad on your phone to do this. Usually, there is a silver film you have to scratch off with a coin to reveal the numbers.
- Receive your balance
If you punched in the numbers correctly, the automated machine will tell you what your balance is.
