DoNotPay Is the Best Way To Check Your Einstein Bros Gift Card Balance

Finding out how much credit is left on your Einstein gift card always involves entering the card details yourself or communicating with customer support. In most cases, you have to wait until a customer care agent picks up your call or answers your message, which can be quite frustrating. To avoid this, turn to DoNotPay and have your gift card balance checked before you know it!

Here’s what you should do:

  1. and sign in to your account
  2. Pick the Check Gift Card Balance service
  3. Take a photo of the back and the front of your gift card and upload it
  4. Enter your email address

You don’t even need to type in the card info! We will detect all the gift card details ourselves and reach out to Einstein Bros. Bagels to check the amount left.

Other Ways To Inquire About the Current Einstein Gift Card Amount

Einstein Bros. Bagels also offers four other ways to see or check the leftover sum on your gift card. You can do it by:

  • Entering your gift card details in their online checker
  • Going to a nearby store and having the card checked with a price checker
  • Calling the company’s customer care line at (800) 224-3563 and asking the rep to see the balance via their software
  • Submitting an email form via their official website

Can You Return the Einstein Gift Card for Cash?

Gift card returns for cash usually aren’t possible unless the local gift card statute says differently. Each state has a specific law that permits or forbids gift card cash back. For now, you are entitled to redeem the unspent credit only if you live in:

  • Maine
  • New Jersey
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • California
  • Vermont
  • Missouri
  • Colorado
  • Massachusetts
  • Connecticut
  • Washington
  • Puerto Rico

These locations have an active cash back policy, which means that customers are entitled by law to get reimbursed for used gift cards. The only exception is free or donated gift cards.

You should also consider the maximum cash back amount determined by local law. It ranges from $1.00 in Vermont or Rhode Island to $10.00 in California.

Don’t Sell the Card—Get Cash Off It Swiftly With DoNotPay

There’s always a possibility of selling or exchanging your gift card if you don’t want to use it anymore, but these options are quite risky, especially if done online. If you want to convert the leftover funds from your gift card to cash and spend those few dollars for something else, we have got your back!

DoNotPay features an amazing tool that can check your local statutes and see if you are entitled to get gift card cash back. We will then compose a request to claim the remaining credit and submit it to the retailer in question.

Here’s how the tool works:

  1. Go to the Gift Card Cash Back option
  2. Tell us a bit more about your gift card by answering a few brief questions

Even if you aren’t that lucky to live at a location that has a consumer-friendly law, we can help you reclaim what’s yours. DoNotPay will run further checks and find the merchant’s office in one of the states that approve gift card reimbursement, and your request will be sent to that branch. You can expect the cash to arrive at your home address in up to 14 business days!
