Chick-fil-A Gift Cards: Where to Buy and How to Use Them

By Lana Kisner | November 4, 2023

If you know someone who loves chicken sandwiches and waffle fries, you may have thought of giving them a Chick-fil-A gift card. It’s a wonderful gift for anyone, especially during the holiday season.

If you’re wondering where you can buy Chick-fil-A gift cards and how to use them on their app or the website, keep reading because I’ve compiled all the information you need in this article.

Where to Buy Chick-fil-A Gift Cards

You can buy physical Chick-fil-A gift cards and e-gift cards. They can be purchased from most Chick-fil-A restaurants or online through their website or the app. In addition, physical gift cards can be purchased at stores like Kroger, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Target, and Sam’s Club.  

If you purchase them from a Chick-fil-A restaurant or on their website, you need to pick a range from $5 to $100. If you’re ordering online, you can choose the card’s value in $1 increments, and there are several different designs available.

Most grocery stores and pharmacies I regularly visit carry them with a minimum of $10 value, so buying directly from Chick-fil-A gives you more flexibility.

How to Use Chick-fil-A Gift Cards For Online Orders

You can use Chick-fil-A gift cards as a payment method when ordering through their website or the mobile app. They are transferred into your Chick-fil-A One membership account and then can be used to pay for your order.

I’ll give you step-by-step instructions on how to use them when ordering on their app, but the process is pretty much the same for website orders.

Step 1. First, create a Chick-fil-A One account on their website or the mobile app. Registering for an account requires a name, email, and phone number. An account is needed to use your gift card.

Step 2. Place your order for pickup or delivery. When your order is complete, click on “My Order” in the bottom right corner of the app or at the top right corner of the website.

Step 3. Review your order and add any special requests you may have. Your total will be shown at the bottom of the screen. If everything looks correct, click on “Continue to checkout” in the app or “Checkout” on the website.  

Step 4. Confirm that your order details are correct. Then, click on “Change” next to the selected payment option.

Step 5. Using the gift card online requires transferring the balance on your card to your Chick-fil-A One account. To transfer the balance, click on “Transfer a gift card.”

Step 6. The next page will prompt you to enter your gift card number and the PIN located beneath the scratch-off area. You may transfer gift card values up to $100. By transferring funds, the card’s balance will be reduced to $0.00, and your funds will instead be available through your account.

Step 7. Once funds have been transferred, click on “Pay with Chick-fil-A One” to complete your order. Your available balance will be shown at the bottom of the screen, and the order total will be deducted from your balance.

How to Check a Chick-fil-A Gift Card Balance

You can check your gift card balance through Chick-fil-A’s mobile app, by calling 1-888-232-1864, or at a restaurant. The remaining balance will also be printed on the bottom of the order receipt.

To check your balance on the mobile app, navigate to “Account” in the bottom menu. Then, click on “Add funds” to view your account balance. The total balance will be shown at the bottom of the screen.

How to Send a Chick-fil-A Gift Card

You can send a physical Chick-fil-A gift card or an e-gift card to your loved ones. The e-gift cards can be purchased on Chick-fil-A’s website or the app and emailed to the recipient. If you want to send a physical gift card, you can purchase it online from participating retailers and have it delivered to your friends or family.

To send an e-gift card to someone, choose a gift card value between $5 and $100 on the Chick-fil-A website, then enter your name, the recipient’s name and email, and a personal message to send with the card.

Next, choose to send the card now or schedule a later date, add the card to your cart, and complete the purchase.

Do Chick-fil-A Gift Cards Expire?

Chick-fil-A gift cards do not expire. In addition, physical gift cards purchased at Chick-fil-A restaurants can be reloaded and used again.

If you know that you’ll not use your gift card for a long time, I highly recommend creating a Chick-fil-A One account and transferring your balance. This way, you’ll not have the risk of losing or damaging your card.
