Below, I explain where to buy Hobby Lobby gift cards and list the places that don’t sell them (so you’ll know where not to go).

Note that Hobby Lobby gift cards usually don’t have any additional fees, although gift cards purchased on the Hobby Lobby website come with a $1 per card mailing and processing fee.[1][2]

What I Recommend

If you prefer to shop in person, The Home Depot and Lowe’s are equally good options.

Neither store charges a purchase or activation fee for Hobby Lobby gift cards, and you can pay for your purchase using cash, a debit card, or a credit card.[3][4]

If you’re open to shopping online, CardCash often offers Hobby Lobby gift cards at a discount (usually around 11% to 13% off). CardCash also doesn’t charge any shipping fees for physical gift cards.[5][6]

Be aware that CardCash is a gift card reseller, and if you’re uncomfortable buying a used gift card, you’re better off buying from Hobby Lobby, The Home Depot, or Lowe’s. However, CardCash does have a 45-day guarantee and will issue a refund if your gift card doesn’t work.[5]

If you choose not to buy directly from Hobby Lobby, the following stores sell Hobby Lobby gift cards. I’ve placed the list in order of the overall best options.

Note that in-store ability may vary by location and what’s in stock at the time of your visit.[3][4]
