Gift Card Fraud Prevention

ALDI gift cards can only be used in ALDI store locations and may not be used to purchase additional ALDI or third-party gift cards. No legitimate government entity including the IRS, Treasury Department, FBI, or local police department will accept any form of gift cards as payment. Other businesses do not accept payment in the form of ALDI gift cards. You will never be asked to pay your utility bills, bail money, debt collection or hospital bills by gift card. 

  • Do not enter your gift card number within search engines to check balances. Please direct your balance inquires on our Gift Card Balance Page 
  • Do not purchase, sell, or attempt to check ALDI gift card balances on any online marketplace.
  • Do not purchase an ALDI gift card if the silver security strip covering the PIN number has been scratched off.
  • Do not respond to online advertisements or websites that offer free gift cards. These are typically scams.
  • Scammers can manipulate caller ID and make it appear they are a legitimate business or government agency. Do not always trust your caller ID.
  • If you are called by a stranger who says that a loved one is in trouble and asks you to provide gift cards or gift card numbers to help them, hang up and call your loved one directly.
  • If you are contacted by Microsoft, Apple or a cyber-security company that offers to help you with a computer virus and asks to be paid with gift cards, this is a scam. Sometimes these scams will begin in the form of pop-ups that mimic computer alerts and direct you to call for support. Real businesses will never ask for payment in the form of gift cards.
  • If you think you have been the victim of a gift card scam, report it to the Federal Trade Commission.​​​​​​​
