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

Can I redeem a Netflix Gift Card on my account if I pay through iTunes, Google Play, or another partner?

You cannot currently redeem a Netflix Gift Card on an account that is being billed through iTunes or Google Play or linked to a partner bundle or service package; you can redeem a Netflix Gift Card if you pay for Netflix through another partner.

If you currently pay through iTunes or Google Play but would like to use a Netflix Gift Card, you will need to cancel your Netflix account and restart it using your gift card.

If your account is currently linked to a partner bundle or service package, you can save the Gift Card to be used if/when your account is no longer linked to a partner bundle or service package, or you can apply it to a new or different Netflix account.

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

No. Just go to netflix.com/redeem, scratch the foil off the back of your card gently with a coin, and enter your PIN. If you already have an account, follow the instructions above to add your gift card to your account. If you are new to Netflix, it's easy to sign up. All you need is your gift card and an email address, password, and zip code to start watching.

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

If you do not have a method of payment on file, you will receive service for as long as your gift card balance lasts. We'll remind you when the gift card balance is low on your account, and you'll be able to stream TV shows and movies for a partial month. To continue watching once your gift card has been consumed, you’ll need to add another gift card or payment method. If you do have a payment method on file, we will bill that payment method once your gift card balance has been consumed.

If you are currently subscribed to both Streaming and DVD service, your gift balance will be applied to your Streaming bill first, then to DVD. The difference will be covered by the current method of payment on file. If there is no alternate method of payment on file, you will be prompted to add one.

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

Yes, we will send you an email to remind you when your gift balance is running low.

If I purchase a gift card in one country, can I use it in another country?

Yes. You can use a gift card purchased in a different country as long as the gift card is for the same currency as your Netflix bill.

Do Netflix Gift Cards expire?

No. Netflix Gift Cards do not expire, and this information is printed on the back of each card.

Can I use a Netflix Gift Card if my account is on hold?

Yes, you can visit netflix.com/redeem to redeem your Netflix Gift Card.

Once you redeem the gift card, it can take up to 60 minutes for the hold to be completely removed. If you have issues redeeming your gift card, you can contact customer service by clicking on Start Live Chat or Call Us below.
