Where Can I Buy an IKEA Gift Card? 8 Options Listed (+ Where You Can’t)

Physical IKEA gift cards are available at any IKEA store, usually at or near the checkout registers. However, there are not many brick-and-mortar IKEA store locations, which makes stopping by an IKEA store to pick up a gift card unfeasible for many people in the U.S.

Fortunately, there are other options for buying both physical and digital gift cards. We’ve compiled the list of other places that sell IKEA gift cards. Most retailers offer IKEA gift cards in amounts ranging from $5 to $1,000, but availability may vary.

IKEA CashStar Website

To purchase a physical or digital IKEA gift card, you can go to the IKEA CashStar website. Simply select a design, gift card quantity, and select any denomination between $5 and $1,000. The website automatically defaults to increments of $5, but you can also enter a custom amount.

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.

Other Gift Card Sellers

Below are some alternative online stores where you can usually purchase IKEA gift cards. The main advantage to buying an IKEA gift card from a vendor other than IKEA is that many offer them at a discount. 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 and choose the amount closest to what you’re looking for. 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.

    I live in Warrnambool Victoria Australia, and would like to purchase a gift card, is there a place here where I could do this?

      Hi Valmai,
      Since you live in Australia, your best bet for getting an IKEA gift card is to purchase straight from the IKEA Australia website. It costs a $4.50 fee to have the card put in the post and sent to you but once you’ve received it, it’s valid for 3 years. You can also purchase a gift card directly from any IKEA store.

      Hi James,

      Unfortunately, it seems that the only physical store that sells Ikea gift cards is Ikea. The nearest one to Boardman, Ohio is 53 miles away in Pittsburgh. However, you can purchase a gift card directly from the Ikea website, or from any of the sites mentioned above, and have it shipped to your home. I hope this helps!
