Checking your Home Depot Gift Card balance is going to take some effort. Unlike most gift cards that provide a toll free number or a website on the back of the card for you to check your balance, the Home Depot gift card balance can only be verified by going to a Home Depot store and asking a cashier to check the balance. There are some Home Depot gift cards that can be checked online but the card has to have a pin number in order to do that.
It is hard to understand why the Home Depot feels the need to drag people in-store to perform a simple task as checking the balance on their gift card. If the idea is to get people to use the card while they are in the store, it is hard to see how that is effective. At best, this is an annoying inconvenience for most customers. The Home Depot should consider adding at least a toll free number or a website as an option to check the balance on their gift cards.
