How To Resolve Gift Card Redemption Issues

Gift Card Has Already Been Redeemed

If you receive an error message that the card has been redeemed, your account or another may have used it before. In this case, try checking “Gift Card Balance” to see if it has been saved to your account or not. 

The system will automatically store your voucher when it is redeemed. Therefore, you do not need to re-enter it many times to determine ownership.

Gift Card Was Applied To The Wrong Account

You can enter the gift code and use it when you need to pay. Or you can change it at the checkout section.

The card applied to the wrong account occurs when you enter the code into an account but use another to redeem and use it for payment.

Remember, once your certificate has been redeemed, an account can only use it. Thus, you cannot transfer or balance it to any other one.

The Claim Code Is Unreadable

If the card is faulty purchased from the store, please contact the store for assistance. Note you should bring the purchase receipt to facilitate the exchange.
