How to Find the PIN Number on a Gift Card By Hazel Baker, eHow Contributor

Found This Helpful How to Find the PIN Number on a Gift Card thumbnail

Gift card PIN numbers are used to activate the card and make purchases with the card. Depending on the type of gift card, the PIN number may be located on the back or front of your card under a scratch-off sticker, or in an email, in the case of an e-gift card.

Instructions

  • 1. Turn the card over. You should either see a scratch-off sticker or a string of numbers on the backside of the card. This is your PIN number.

  • 2. Using a coin or your fingernail, gently scratch off the sticker to reveal your PIN number. If you have e-gift card, your PIN number will be in the email that was sent to you when you purchased the card or activated it.

  • 3. When you make purchases, either online, in person, or over the phone, you will need to enter your PIN number each time in most cases. One exception to this rule is iTunes gift cards, which require you to first download and install iTunes and create an account in order to register and activate a gift card. iTunes does not require the PIN number to be entered each time that the balance on the gift card is used for purchases.
