Check Balance On Home Depot Gift Card

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

home_depot_gift_cardUnfortunately checking the balance on your Home Depot gift card is more difficult then it should be. Unlike most companies which offer phone lines and websites for checking the balance on a gift card the Home Depot gift card balances can only be verified in the store. This means you will have to go all the way to the nearest Home Depot and stand in line waiting for a cashier to check the balance.

It’s hard to understand why Home Depot insists on bringing customers into its store. They may think people are more likely to use the balance if they are in the store, but it really just creates an annoyance for their customers. Hopefully in the future the company will offer a website or phone number to check the balance of their gift cards, but for now Home Depot gift card holders are stuck making a trip to the store to check their balance.

If you would rather have cash instead of a Home Depot gift card you can always sell your gift card online. Giftah hosts an online marketplace where you can turn your unwanted gift card into cash. Or if you are going to be making a big purchase at a retail store you can buy gift cards at a discount.

UPDATE: Thanks to one of our readers, Cindy, it seems that Home Depot does have a way (although very hidden) to check your gift card online. Click here to be taken to the page to check your Home Depot gift card balance.
