IKEA gift cards are quick, easy gifts. They are valid for use at either a physical IKEA store or online. IKEA gift cards never expire and they can cost anywhere from $5-$1000.
As you’re probably aware, there aren’t a lot of IKEA store locations, which makes swinging by an IKEA to pick up a gift card simply unfeasible. Fortunately, there are other options. We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of these alternative 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 sites.
Buy an IKEA Gift Card In-Store
Physical IKEA gift cards can be purchased at any IKEA location, ranging in amount from $5 to $1,000. 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
To purchase an IKEA gift card, go to the IKEA CashStar website and input how many cards you would like to buy, as well as which denomination(s). The worth of the card may be set at your own discretion or you can use one of the amounts preset in the blue boxes.
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. You 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 of 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.
CardKangaroo offers IKEA gift cards at a 5% discount. 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 and 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 of 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 CardSwap page, select the merchant of the card from the drop-down menu and the amount of money the gift card is worth. From there, CardSwap will offer you a selling figure. Giftcard Zen will do the same thing, as will CardCash and CardKangaroo.
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 can 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.
As always, protect your identity and be sure you make online purchases on safe, encrypted shopping sites! All the sites listed here are safe for credit card use. Enjoy getting an IKEA gift card!
