Today we‘ll see how you can redeem a Netflix gift card to recharge your account and enjoy your favorite series. In this way, you can pay for the service without using a credit card, Paypal or paid subscription in Google Play or iTunes.
Whether you have been given a Netflix gift card or bought for yourself for other reasons (such as to pay cash or if you don’t trust online purchases), redeeming the gift cards is a simple process and it doesn’t take more than a couple of minutes.
Netflix gift cards are available for sale in large stores with different values: 15, 25, 50… This amount will be added to your account and will be consumed according to your current plan.
1. Scratch the PIN code
Netflix gift cards can be physical or virtual, but in both cases, it all comes down to a PIN code. If it is a virtual card, you will receive this PIN code by e-mail, while in the physical cards you will have to scratch it with a coin to be able to read it. The code usually consists of 11 digits that can be numbers or letters.
2. Add the code
Once you have the gift card code, open this page in your web browser to Add the credit to your account. All you need to do is type the code in the form and press the Redeem button.
3. Log in or create a new account
If you did not have the session started in Netflix in the browser, you will see the previous screen, which gives you two options. You can create a new account or log in with an existing account. The gift card credit will be added to the option you choose and you will not be able to change it, so think about it.
If you chose to add the credit of the gift card to an existing account, you will need to log in to Netflix in the next step . As always, you only need to include your email address, password and press the button. If you already had the session started, Netflix assumes that you will want to add the credit there, although you can change it in the next step.
4. Confirm your choice
Then you will see a window asking for confirmation. There is not much text: it simply tells you the amount of money included in the gift card and what account will be added. You are still in time to cancel or apply to a different account. If everything is correct, press Redeem.
It is done. From the Netflix Account section, you can see that credit has been added to your account. It will be used on the next invoice – and successive – until it is consumed. When finished, the subscription will be terminated or will continue to be charged by other available means (credit card, etc).
The only thing you have to keep in mind about Netflix gift cards aren’t compatible with those users who are subscribed to Google Play or iTunes. If this is your case, you must first cancel your subscription in Google Play or iTunes, and then add the gift card. Once the credit is consumed, you can re-subscribe to Google Play or iTunes.
