Happy Teen Gift Card Balance: Questions and AnswersFAQ's

Happy Cards are available in stores and on Below are Gift Card Girlfriend's tips for giving and using Happy Card gift cards successfully!

  1. Where Can I Use Happy Card Gift Cards?

    Happy Cards give recipients the freedom to eat, shop or play at any of the stores or restaurants shown on the front or listed on the back of the card. Simply present a Happy Card for food, merchandise or services at time of payment. The amount of every purchase made will automatically be deducted from the value on the Happy Card gift card. You are free to use the same gift card multiple times, at any of the participating brands until the card balance is $0. (Happy Card gift cards cannot be reloaded with additional money). You can use your Happy Teen gift card at Regal Cinemas, Sephora, Dave & Buster’s, Under Armour, Barnes & Noble, Jamba Juice and American Eagle.

  2. Can Happy Card Gift Cards be Used in Stores and Online?

    Happy Card gift cards are best used in stores. Although some stores and restaurants can accept Happy Cards on their websites, many are currently not able to do so. (If you try to use a Happy Card Gift Card online, enter the card number into the “CREDIT” field at checkout rather than the “GIFT CARD” field).

  3. Can I Use My Happy Card Gift Card in More than One Place?

    Yes! One of my favorite things about Happy Card gift cards is that you can use a Happy Card gift card at any of the stores or restaurants listed on the card and you can even use it at more than one place if you have enough money. Teens, for example, can use the Happy Teen gift card to pay for a movie at Regal Cinemas and then use it to pay for a smoothie at Jamba Juice afterward. Each recipient can create the experience he or she wants.

  4. Should I Say the Happy Card is a Debit, Credit or Gift Card?

    Although Happy Cards are gift cards, they MUST be used as “CREDIT” at checkout. When you get to the cashier, ask to “ring the card as credit” rather than a gift.

  5. Do Happy Card Gift Cards Expire? What is the Valid Thru Date?

    Like Visa®and Mastercard® gift cards that are usable at many stores and restaurants, Happy Card gift cards have a card number, “Valid Thru” date and “CVV2” (Card Verification Value) listed on the back of the cards. The funds however, DO NOT EXPIRE. If the “Valid Thru” date on your Happy Card gift card has passed, visit or call 855.606.3494 to get a replacement card.

  6. How Do I Check My Happy Card Balance?

    Visit or call 855.606.3494 to check the balance of your Happy Card.

  7. Can I Get a Replacement if I Lose my Happy Card Gift Card?

    Like other gift cards, Happy Cards will not be replaced if lost or stolen. If you have the card number and proof of purchase however, you may contact customer service at or call 855.606.3494 to see if the card funds have been used.

  8. Where Can I Get Help with My Happy Card Gift Card?

    Contact customer service at or call 855.606.3494 for help with your Happy Card.

  9. Can I Add Money to My Happy Card Gift Card?

    Happy Card gift cards cannot be reloaded with additional money. However, do not throw a depleted Happy Card Gift Card away until you are certain that items purchased with the card will not be returned. Often times, stores automatically credit the card used to make the original purchase when an item is returned. You will need to have the card available in order to access the refunded amount.

  10. What if My Purchase is Greater than the Happy Card Balance?

    If the purchase is greater than the balance of the Happy Card, ask the cashier to charge the exact amount available on the card and then pay the balance with another form of payment.

Video Transcript: How to Check the Balance on Your Happy Teen Gift CardVideo Transcript

Hi, I’m Shelley Hunter, Gift Card Girlfriend at and I’m super excited to talk to you about a new type of gift card available. They’re called Happy Cards! They’re for all of your happy occasions–Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, Happy Graduation, Happy Mother’s Day, Happy Father’s Day, Happy Holidays!

If you have a reason to celebrate, then I hope you will check out the new Happy Cards.

Here’s what I love so much about Happy Cards. They combine the best of what people are always asking me for. People want gift cards with choices. They want a few different places that they can use their cards so they can spend them how they want, but they don’t often want to pay extra for that flexibility. With Happy Cards you don’t have to.

Happy Cards are usable at any of the stores and restaurants listed on the cards. So we’ve got Happy Teen, Happy Kid, Happy Guy, Happy Lady, Happy Dining, Happy Local Eats, Happy Bites and more. Lots of different gift cards available with a whole different collection on each card.

I just bought the new Happy Bites card over at Lowe’s while I was shopping for some other things because it has a bunch of fast casual restaurants that my kids enjoy.

So, I bought the gift card over at Lowe’s and then I went over to Panera to show you how easy it is to use the Happy Card at Panera.

Now here’s a tip! When you get to the cash register to use your Happy Card, these cards will have to be run as a credit transaction. You don’t need to worry about it, it’s written on the card so the cashier will have instructions, but just so you know ahead of time, even though you’re holding what you know to be a gift card, the cashier will have to run it as a credit transaction.

So, when I got to Panera, I simply told them I had a new Happy Card to spend, we looked at the instructions and I just had to key enter the card number as a credit transaction and you might have to enter an expiration date as well. But don’t worry, the funds don’t expire and there are no fees associated with these gift cards.

So, if you have a celebration coming up, a birthday, an anniversary or somebody you want to thank with a gift card, then check out the new Happy Cards. I think you’ll really like them.
