How Do I Check the Balance on My Home Depot Gift Card?

Home Depot helps many homeowners and other DIY-selfers with many home improvement projects. Supplies, tools, planning ideas, and advice are all within reach at your local store. This business also accepts many payment methods, including Home Depot gift cards. Customers can use them online or in store, and the balance can also be conveniently checked online or in store, too.

Bernard Marcus and Arthur Blank founded Home Depot in 1978 to embody their values, such as respect for associates and charity for communities. Now, the company is a one-stop shop for DIY projects with more than 2,000 locations. Home Depot offers gift cards, which can help you reach home improvement goals. Read on to learn more about these cards.

Gift Card Tips

Like many businesses, Home Depot offers e-gift cards and physical plastic ones. Both come in a variety of designs. There are no fees or expiration date, and you can redeem them in store or online. Gift cards are also refillable, so you can add funds anytime online or by visiting your local store.

If you decide to purchase a gift card in store, you can pay with cash, debit, or credit card. E-gift cards can be purchased with Discover, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and PayPal. The Home Depot Consumer Credit Cards and Commercial Revolving Charge Cards are the only payment methods not accepted for Home Depot gift cards.

If you purchase a gift card, Home Depot will deliver it to any valid address in the United States. To purchase a gift for a loved one in Canada, visit Home Depot's Canadian website.

Reminders About Shipping Time

Remember shipping times will depend on the delivery method. Standard shipping is free and takes between two and 10 business days, while express shipping is the next business day if the order is received by 12 p.m. EST and costs $6.

However, if you place your order between Friday 12 p.m. EST and Monday at 5 a.m. EST, it will be shipped Monday.

Warning About Gift Card Scams

The company does want its customers to be wary of scams, especially ones involving gift cards. First, Home Depot gift cards cannot be accepted as payment at other stores or businesses. It's also vital to remember that government agencies, whether federal or local, will not ask for gift card payments. Please also avoid third-party ads and websites claiming to offer free gift cards since they're most likely scams trying to obtain your personal information.

If you have any questions about Home Depot's policies or your account, feel free to reach out to Home Depot's customer service agents who can help seven days a week.

Checking the Balance and Using Your Gift Card

You have two ways to check the balance: having a cashier at your local Home Depot check it for you or you can check it online.

  1. Visit the website and click on the gift cards link near the upper right-hand corner and just above the My Account tab.
  2. Find the Check Balance option on the main gift card page, which is located on the left side of the screen and below the orange Shop Now button.
  3. Enter the gift card number and PIN to get the balance.

Redeeming your gift card is easy, use it in store for up to the total amount due at the register. For online orders, add the gift card number and PIN after selecting the Apply a Gift Card option.
