Many people wonder, “Where can I buy an IKEA gift card?” But fear not. There are actually more places available than one would think.
IKEA gift cards are quick, easy gifts. They are valid for use at either a physical IKEA store or on IKEA’s online shop. IKEA gift cards never expire and they can cost anywhere from $5-$1000. To add value to or to check the balance of your card, visit any domestic IKEA Store and ask the cashier for help, or call Customer Service at 1-888-888-IKEA (4532).
As you’re probably aware, there aren’t a lot of IKEA store locations. So, if you don’t live by an IKEA, where else can you get them? We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of options, sorted into three primary categories: IKEA gift cards you can buy at an actual IKEA store, gift cards you can buy through IKEA’s online CashStar resource and gift cards you can buy through alternative stores/sites other than IKEA.
Buy an IKEA Gift Card In-Store
Physical IKEA gift cards can be purchased at any IKEA location, ranging in amount from $5 to $1000. Usually, in-store cards are located at any check-out stand. If you can’t find a card, ask a cashier for help.
Buy an IKEA Gift Card Online at IKEA CashStar

After you’ve chosen a card amount, enter the details of delivery, including the recipient’s name and email, your name, payment info, and a shipping address. Your can pay for an IKEA gift card with VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.
Buy an IKEA Gift Card Online at Alternative Gift Card Sites
Below are some alternative online stores where you may purchase an IKEA gift card. The main advantage to buying an IKEA gift card from a vendor other than IKEA is that it’s usually cheaper. However, many these sites won’t allow you to simply input the value you’d like the gift card to have: instead, you’ll have to browse the sites for available options at that time, and choose from there. If the card is being sold in physical form (as opposed to a code), it will be mailed to you once you’ve made a successful purchase. Here’s a list of the alternative sites:
CardKangaroo offers IKEA gift cards at a 5% discount. Currently, they only have IKEA gift cards with values of $114.90 and $193.76. You can also trade gift cards with CardKangaroo credit. Acceptable payment methods are debit and credit card.

Where to Sell an IKEA Gift Card
You can sell your IKEA gift card online for cash at reselling sites like QuickcashMI, See Ya, or Gift Card Granny. Depending on the popularity of the card’s merchant, or the amount of money the card carries, you’ll get varying percentages on cash back. Sometimes these resellers require the card to be worth $20 or more before they’ll resell.
You can also sell at many of the other sites we listed previously. For example, on this Cardpool sell page, select the merchant of the card from the drop down menu, as well as the amount of money the gift card is worth. From there, Cardpool will offer you a selling figure. CardSwap will do the same thing, as will CardCash, CardKangaroo, and Giftcard Zen.
Raise works a little differently. On Raise, you set the selling figure yourself. Your card will enter Raise’s listings, and then you wait for a buyer to show interest in it. Gift Card Cafe requires you to make an account in order to sell your gift cards, but once you login, it will probably operate similarly to Raise.
Another way you sell your IKEA gift card is to check out your local mall. Major resellers like Gift Card Granny may have a kiosk set up specifically for reselling gift cards. Keep in mind, most sites or companies will resell the card at 75% its value.
