How to Check an Apple Gift Card Balance

It is exciting to receive an Apple gift card. Apple Store gift cards can be used to buy Apple laptops, desktops, iPad and other hardware and accessories. Apple Music Membership and iTunes gift cards can be used to buy memberships, as well as music, movies and other products on the iTunes, App and iBooks stores. You can check your balance on your smartphone or laptop, as well as by visiting an Apple retailer


Checking Your Apple Store Gift Card Balance

1. Check online. If you live in the United States, you can check your balance online. Go to the Apple website and sign in to your account. Click on "check the balance of a gift card." Then, enter the pin on the back of the gift card. You will then see your account balance.

  • If you are checking your balance from Canada, you are forced to use the phone or in-person option. There is no way to check your balance online.

2. Dial 1-888-320-3301. Once you get into the automated phone system, you can say, "check my Apple store gift card balance." The system should take you to the gift card department. Select your preferred language and then pick 1 for your gift card balance. The system will ask you to enter the pin on the back of your card, followed by the pound sign. You will then hear your balance.

3. Go to an Apple store. If you live in a city with an Apple store, you could just take your gift card to the store. Ask a member of the service team to look up your gift card balance.

Finding Your iTunes or Apple Music Balance
  1. Find the redemption code. Look on the back of the gift card to locate a removable label. Scratch off the label to find the hidden code. You should see a sixteen-digit code.
  2. Redeem the gift card on your personal computer. Open the iTunes application and then click on the store button. On the right-hand side of the store screen, click the redeem button. Then, sign in with your Apple ID.
  3. Enter the sixteen-digit coupon code. After entering the code, you will see your new iTunes balance. The iTunes balance will include the redeemed gift card balance.
  • By "redeeming" your iTunes gift card, you are just adding it to your account. You are not actually using the sum but, rather, adding it to your account in order to see the balance.
  • If you already had a balance on your account, you will need to subtract the amount of your previous balance from the new balance shown after redeeming the gift card. The difference between your old and new balance is the amount on your gift card.
  • If you want to check your balance after making some purchases, you can follow the same process.

4. Redeem the gift card on your phone. Tap on the iTunes music application on your smartphone. Then, open the iTunes store and sign in. At the bottom of the screen, click on "music." Tap the "redeem" option. Finally, enter your gift card code to reveal the balance.

  • In some countries, you can use your smartphone camera to redeem the gift card. After clicking on the redeem option, click on the option to "use Camera." Then, take a picture of the sixteen-digit code and the phone will automatically redeem the code.
  1. Find the balance on the Mac App Store. From your personal computer, click on the Apple icon on the top left-hand corner of your screen. Scroll down to "App Store." From the App Store, click on the featured tab. On the right side of the window, you should see an option to "redeem." Enter your gift card number to see your account balance.
  2. Use the wallet app on your smartphone. Open up the wallet app and tap on the plus sign. Select the find apps option and then scroll down to redeem. At the bottom, you will see the option for an iTunes pass. Click on get started and then tap the option to add iTunes pass to your wallet. Once you have the iTunes gift card added to your wallet, you will just need to open up your iTunes pass and view your account balance in the top right-hand corner.
