What type of gift card do I have?

Apple offers two different types of gift cards: Apple Store Gift Cards and App Store & iTunes Gift Cards. You might also have a different, older card.

Apple Store Gift Cards

Apple Store Gift Cards can be used in the Apple Online Store1 or Apple Retail store. On the back of these cards, you'll 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.


Apple Store Gift Cards are a solid color (gray, white, silver, or gold) on the front.

App Store & iTunes Gift Cards

App Store & iTunes Gift Cards can be used in the App Store, iTunes Store, or Apple Books. On the back of these cards, you'll find:

  • A link to a website where you can redeem your gift card.
  • Text that says that the card can be used for apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, books, and iCloud.
  • A link to support.apple.com/giftcard, which you can visit if you need help.

App Store & iTunes Gift Cards will say App Store or iTunes on the back of the card.


Older gift cards

You might have a gift card that looks different than the App Store & iTunes Gift Card above. These gift cards can still be redeemed for Apple ID credit; just follow the steps on the back of the card.

Some examples of older gift cards include:
