Apple Store Gift Card

Apple Store Gift Cards in a range of colors including silver, gold, white, and gray.

Apple Store Gift Cards are a solid color (gray, white, silver, or gold) on the front. On the back of these cards, you can find:

  • A link to a website where you can check your gift card's balance.
  • Text that says that the card can only be used in the Apple Online Store or Retail Store, or that you can't redeem the card in the iTunes Store.
  • A phone number that you can call if you need help.

In most countries and regions, you can use an Apple Store Gift Card in an Apple Store or at apple.com. In France, Germany, Singapore, and Switzerland, Apple Store Gift Cards can be used only in an Apple Store, not on apple.com.


Older gift cards

If your card looks different from the cards above, it might be an older card, but you can still redeem it. Just follow the steps on the back of the card.
