Redeeming a Netflix gift subscription is easy. Just go to netflix.com/gift and enter the gift or promotion code to get started (some promotional offers from third parties may have some additional restrictions). If you're new to Netflix, you'll be prompted to create a new Netflix account. To apply your gift subscription to an existing account, be sure to sign into Netflix before redeeming your gift.
If you have questions about Netflix gift cards available at retailers in the US, Canada, Mexico, Germany, and Austria, please visit one of the following articles:
Netflix gift subscriptions or promotions can't be used on an account that's billed via iTunes. Your Netflix gift subscription can be redeemed by first canceling your Netflix billing through iTunes, then redeeming your gift once your current subscription has ended.
No. Unredeemed gift subscriptions purchased after August 20, 2010 never expire.
Some promotion codes may have an expiration date, so it's best to redeem them as soon as possible.
If you do not have another payment method on your account, your membership will automatically close at the end of your gift or promotion. If you've added payment information to your Netflix account during your gift time, your account will remain open and we'll simply bill you once per month until you cancel your account.
You can cancel your account at any time -- we'll let you continue streaming until remaining value of your gift subscription or promotion is used up.
We're excited that someone has chosen to share the Netflix love of movies and television with you. Additional information about Netflix gift subscriptions can be found in our complete Gift Terms.
