The holiday season is just around the corner and one of the best gifts for the season seems to be Apple Gift Cards. They are a great way to express your love for your family and friends while helping them buy their favorite digital items on the App Store.
Apple allows you to make virtually any purchase using Gift Cards and Apple Pay and any unused balance is automatically stored in your Apple ID for future purchases. Let’s take a look at how you can check your left over Gift Card balance for your Apple ID.
How to check Apple Gift Card Balance
Checking your gift card balance is a fairly simple process no matter the device you are using as long as you have access to your Apple ID credentials. Let’s take a look at how you can check your gift card balance.
Open the App Store on your iOS device.
Now tap on your profile picture in the top right corner.
Apple will now ask you to sign-in with your Apple ID credentials. Enter the necessary details and login to your account.
Once logged in, the balance should be visible under your Apple ID.
Open the App Store on your Mac using either the Spotlight or the Dashboard. In case you are asked for your credentials, sign in to your account with your Apple ID credentials.
Once signed in, look for your Apple ID profile picture in the bottom right corner of your screen. Your Apple gift card balance should be displayed under your Apple ID.

If there is no balance displayed under your Apple ID then it means that currently you do not have any Gift Card balance in your account. Once you redeem a Gift Card or add funds to your Apple ID, you should see the necessary amount below your Apple ID.
