How do I purchase a gift for a friend or family member?
You can purchase an ABCmouse gift membership online by clicking on this link: Give a Gift.
Can a gift membership be purchased and applied if our billing is through Apple or Amazon?
Existing subscribers who pay for ABCmouse through third parties such as Apple or the Amazon App Store don’t currently have the option to apply gift codes to their accounts. You will have to wait to redeem your code once your account goes completely inactive.
Will we get a confirmation for our gift membership purchase?
Once you purchase a gift for a friend or family member, you will receive a confirmation page thanking you for purchasing a gift membership. On this page, you can customize your gift certificate and fill in the "To" and "From" field boxes by entering in the child's or parent/caregiver's name and your name. You can even write out a personalized little note to send to them.
Each certificate will come with instructions on how to get started, whether the member is new or an existing member of ABCmouse. The recipient will have to claim the gift code that is generated in the certificate before logging in. Feel free to print or email this certificate to yourself or the recipient.
What happens once my gift membership ends?
Each gift membership will come with a unique code which locks full site access according to the timeframe selected when placing the order (typically 1-year or 2-years).
If the family or friend would like to continue to use their account once the code ends, the system will ask that they sign up for a paid subscription to ABCmouse. There are both monthly and annual plans available, and the annual plan offers a significant discount over the paid monthly rate.
How do I redeem a gift code?
Redeeming a gift code will vary depending on if you're a new member or an existing subscriber to ABCmouse.
If you're a new member and would like to redeem a gift code, please see the steps below:
- Go to ABCmouse.com/gift.
- Select the New Members option under Redeem a Code.
- Follow the prompts to apply your gift code.
Please note that your account will automatically cancel at the end of the gift membership term. To continue having access to ABCmouse, you may apply another gift code or subscribe to ABCmouse.
You can also redeem ABCmouse gift codes directly to your subscription.
If you're an existing subscriber and would like to redeem a gift code, please see the steps below:
- Go to ABCmouse.com/gift.
- Select the Existing Members option under Redeem a Code.
- Follow the prompts to apply your gift code to your subscription.
Please note that applying a gift code to an active subscription does not automatically cancel the subscription. Gift codes extend the site access and once the gift code duration has expired, the subscription billing will resume until cancelled.
