What is a gift code?
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.
Where do I find my gift code?
Similar to a credit card, the gift codes on Visa and MasterCard gift cards are located on the front. Store gift cards including Target, Starbucks and Dairy Queen are usually found on the back.
How do I find a gift code on an eGift card?
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.
