Instructions on How To Check Your Steam Gift Card Balance and Get Cash Back
Do you have a new or partially used Steam gift card but don’t know how much money you have on it? You’re on the right website!
Steam offers both physical and digital gift cards. They come in various denominations, from $5 to $100. You can use a Steam gift card to buy games, software, and similar items on their website.
To use a digital Steam gift card, you need to accept it from your account once your Steam friend sends it. After you accept the gift, funds will be delivered to your Steam Wallet.
Follow the steps below to redeem your gift card:
- Open Steam
- Go to your profile
- Click on View My Wallet
- Tap on Redeem a Steam Gift Card or Wallet Code
- Type in your gift card code in the Steam Wallet Code field
- Press Continue

|How To Check Your Balance Via||Instructions|
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
No company will make cash back requests easy for their customers. In most states, there is no law that obligates these companies to give money back.
In some states, companies must return the remaining gift card funds to the customers provided that their balance doesn't exceed a certain amount of money. The reimbursable amount is different in every state, and it usually ranges from $3 to $10.
Filing a cash back request can be a complex matter, but DoNotPay has an effortless solution.
If you want to avoid the complicated process of filing a cash back request by yourself, sign up for DoNotPay. We will explore whether you live in one of the states that have a cash back policy. Even if your state doesn't obligate the companies to provide the reimbursement, DoNotPay will find a Steam office in a state that does, and we will send your request to them.
To file your request, follow the steps below:
- Type in Gift Card Cash Back in DoNotPay’s search bar
- Add all the necessary information—your gift card number, the remaining balance, your email, and similar
- Click on Sign and Submit
