Welcome to the Help Center

Do I need to do anything before using my Gift Card?

Most Gift Cards come ready to use. If activating your Gift Card is required for use, then it will come with instructions for how to do this. We also recommend that you sign your name on the back of the Gift Card, and that you record the following information in case it's ever lost or stolen:

  • Gift Card number
  • Four digit Card Identification Code (CID) on the front of the Card
  • Three digit Card Security Code (CSC) on the back of the Card
  • Customer service phone number

You can also call us at the phone number on the back of your Gift Card to register your name and Gift Card details in the event it’s lost or stolen.
