We don't require you to activate gift cards under $250, gift cards purchased in-store, eGift cards, or cards that were part of a bulk purchase of less than 25 cards.
For your security, any physical gift cards over $250 ordered online or cards that were part of a bulk purchase of more than 25 cards must be activated before you can use them. When you place your gift card order, we send an email with a password and instructions on how to activate your card(s) to the email address listed on your account. Misplaced your eGift card email? We can help.
