Locate your redemption code

When you try to redeem a gift card, you'll be asked for the card's redemption code. Peel or gently scratch off the label on the back of the gift card to reveal a 16-digit code that starts with an X. If your code is damaged or illegible, contact Apple Support.

If you have an older card, the number might appear in different places. Here are some examples:
