Apple Store Gift Card

Apple Store Gift Cards in a range of colours, including silver, gold, white and grey.

Apple Store Gift Cards are a solid colour (grey, 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 only be used in an Apple Store, not on apple.com.

Older gift cards

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