Know your balance
Before you use your card you should know your card’s initial balance, and remember to track your remaining balance after each purchase.
You can check your card balance by visiting the website of your card issuer or calling their toll-free customer service number.
If you would like to make a purchase for an amount greater than the balance on your card, you’ll need to use a second form of payment to cover the difference—just tell the cashier in advance the amount you’d like applied to your gift card. The balance will then need to be paid with the second payment method.
