How Do I Request a Refund to a Gift Card from Ikea?

Ikea is a global brand that offers furniture and other goods that the consumer must assemble. You can find treasures for the home, too. Ikea offers gift cards if you want to contribute to that home, sweet home feeling to someone else, but you don't know their taste in décor. You can buy a gift card in digital or physical form, but refunds will be credited to the original payment method.

Ikea is a well-known retailer that sells furniture and other home goods that require the customer to perform the assembly. Founded in 1943 in Sweden by an entrepreneurial 17-year-old, Ikea has grown into a global name that has followed the path many established businesses take by offering gift cards to its customers.

Ikea Gift Cards Terms and Conditions

As with any transactions, gift cards come with company policies, some of which are as follows. Ikea gift cards never expire, nor do they have inactivity fees. Ikea cards can be redeemed in-store or online at participating stores. Refunds of gift cards are not allowed; you can cancel a purchase before its scheduled delivery to the receiver. Ikea also has the right to refuse your gift card if there's been a bounced check or credit charge dispute.

It's also important to remember your online balance is approximate and does not always update in real-time, so keeping track of your transactions is still one of the best solutions to track your gift card balance. You're also welcome to check your balance after a few days.

Please note that these are only a few of Ikea's terms. Visit the website to view the Terms and Conditions in its entirety.

Refund to an Ikea gift Card

Ikea's return policy states that all returns are to be refunded back to the original form of payment, so it appears that obtaining credit on a gift card is not an option at this time. Please check Ikea's website regularly for any updates on this policy. Until then, purchasing a gift card is the best way to give a present for a home.

If you have any questions, please contact Ikea customer service agents here who can help daily.

Additional Policy Details

Gift cards are also available in both e-gift cards and physical formats. Plus, they can be purchased in increments between $5 and $1,000. Keep in mind that buying more than $1,000 worth of gift cards is strictly prohibited. Also, you cannot reload them with extra funds, and they cannot be replaced if lost, stolen, or damaged.
