The Easiest Way to Convert Your Apple Gift Card to Cash Quickly

Gift cards aren’t bad, but they can’t compete with hard cash. Apple gift cards can get you anything from the wide range of Apple products, yet they can’t pay your bills or a nice meal. What if we told you that you can turn an Apple gift card into cash and use it as you please?

DoNotPay has the tools for checking any gift card balance, and if there’s money left on the card, we can send a formal request to the company demanding your money back!

What Can You Do With an Apple Gift Card?

Every company wants you to spend money in their stores, whether it’s Apple, Xbox, or Dell. They all issue gift cards and won’t normally exchange them for cash unless required by law, and Apple is no different.

Their gift cards can get you any software or products available in Apple web and retail stores:

  • iPhones, iPads, and iPods
  • Mac computers
  • Apple TVs
  • iTunes software

The way Apple gift cards work is simple—you need to activate the gift card with a 16-digit code on the back of the card using your device and then use the balance for shopping. These cards can be reloaded and used multiple times.
