DVD Gift Cards

You can use DVD Gift Cards to prepay for a Netflix subscription or to give as a gift to friends, family, teachers, and more. These gift cards are no longer available for purchase.

You can apply a DVD Gift Card to your new or existing Netflix account. We will deduct the appropriate amount from your gift card balance based on the plan you've chosen. If you're new to Netflix and haven't had an account before, you will receive a free month of service, in addition to the amount of the gift card. After the free month, we will start to deduct the monthly charge for your plan from your gift card balance.

Read on for answers to our most common questions about DVD Gift Cards.

How do I redeem gift cards?

To redeem your DVD Gift Card:

  1. Go to dvd.com/redeem.

  2. Scratch the foil off the back of your card gently with a coin.

  3. Enter the PIN code.

If you already have a Netflix account, you can also enter this PIN on the Your Account page. The balance of your gift card will be added to your account, and your next payment will be taken from the gift card balance.

Can I use more than one gift card on my account?

Yes. To use more than one gift card on your account, enter the gift cards at dvd.com/redeem. Your balance will increase with each gift card you add. You can always check your Billing Details page to see your available balance.

Can I redeem a DVD Gift Card on my account if I pay through Apple?

No. You currently cannot redeem a DVD Gift Card on an account that is being billed through Apple. If you would like to use a DVD Gift Card, you will need to cancel your Netflix account to end Apple billing and then restart your account using the gift card.

Do I have to enter a credit card to use a DVD Gift Card on my account?

No. Just go to dvd.com/redeem and enter the PIN found on the back of your gift card. If you already have an account, follow the instructions above to add this gift to your account. If you are new to Netflix, it's easy to sign up. This gift card and an email address, password and mailing address are all you need to start having DVDs and Blu-ray discs delivered to your home.

What happens when my gift balance isn’t enough to pay for a full month?

You will receive service for as long as your gift card balance lasts. If your gift card balance does not cover a full month, you'll be able to have DVDs or Blu-ray discs mailed to you for a partial month. Once your gift card balance is consumed, you'll need to add a Netflix Gift Card or payment method to your account to continue service.

Will you notify me when my gift balance is running low?
