What Can You Do After a Steam Gift Card Balance Check?

When you find out what the remaining balance on your Steam gift card is, you can do the following:

  • Purchase an item—If you have enough money in your Steam Wallet or on your Steam gift card, you can redeem it for a game, or any other item on Steam
  • Donate the physical card—Some charities accept gift cards as donations
  • Sell the gift card for money—You can find various kiosks and websites that resell gift cards and sell your new or used card there. A downside of kiosks is that you have to visit them in person, which might take too much of your time. Another drawback is that these places usually don’t accept gift cards below a certain balance (usually $20). As for the websites, some of them might be a scam, so you need to be careful when you’re selling your gift cards online. Note that you probably won’t be able to get the full amount of your balance because both websites and kiosks offer around 70% or 80% of the card’s value
  • Exchange the card—You can exchange your Steam gift card for a card from a different merchant. There are many websites and stores that offer this possibility
  • Request cash back—Officially, Steam doesn't reimburse gift card funds in cash, but the law might be on your side. Use DoNotPay to find out how to get your money back stress-free

How To Get Cash Back From a Steam Gift Card
