A gift code is the 16- to 25-digit number located on the front or back of a gift card. Depending on the brand, a gift code can also be alphanumeric. Note that the Personal Identification Number (PIN) and Card Value Verification (CVV) are not part of the gift code but are required for security.
The gift code on an electronic card is typically located under the barcode. Remember that the PINC, CVV and CSC are not part of the gift code.
