Gift Cards

When making a purchase in our store, you can redeem the value of the 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.

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 are prompted to choose a second payment method for the balance before placing the order.

Note

If you want to buy a gift card for someone else, then you need to forward the gift card email to the recipient.
