Where can I find my gift card number and PIN?

You can find the gift card number on the back of your gift card underneath the barcode. The PIN is also on the back of your card, but it is hidden under a scratch-off panel. Just scratch off the protective covering with a coin and you can read the four-digit PIN.

I typed my card number and PIN, but when I try to validate my card I get an error message. What should I do?

Check to make sure you have typed both numbers correctly and try again. If you continue to have trouble validating your gift card, please call Booksamillion.com Customer Service at 800-201-3550.

When will Booksamillion.com remove money from my gift card?

As soon as you submit your order, Booksamillion.com will reserve the required amount from your gift card. You can continue to use the same Gift Card in your nearby Books-A-Million, Bookland, or Books & Company bookstore, or to place orders on Booksamillion.com. The amount of money used to place your order will not be available for use elsewhere.

What if all or part of my order gets cancelled? Will the money be put back onto my gift card?

Yes, if all or part of your order gets cancelled, your gift card will be credited back the appropriate amount. This will happen as soon as your order is cancelled, or as soon as all outstanding items on your order have been cancelled and the order has been marked as fulfilled.
