The Navy Federal Visa Gift Card is welcome everywhere Visa Debit Cards are accepted in the United States (U.S. territories are excluded). Navy Federal Visa Gift Cards are loaded with a set amount of funds that can be used for multiple purchases as long as value remains on the Card.
You can purchase a Navy Federal Visa Gift Card online or at a Navy Federal branch (domestic branches only). At our branches, we always offer an all-occasion Silver Bow and Birthday design, with additional designs during the holidays. Online, choose from a wider variety of designs for specific holidays and events.

If your Card is personalized with a name, click “Activate.” If this is a new Gift Card, you’ll be required to select a 4-digit PIN.
Once signed in, to register your Card, click "My Profile" and under the "My Settings" drop-down menu, enter your name, address and phone number.
Note: The fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required. All other fields are optional.
If your Card is personalized with a name, you’ll be required to select your PIN during activation.

Unlike store gift cards and gift certificates, you can use your Navy Federal Visa Gift Card to pay for purchases at any store that accepts Visa Debit Cards (U.S. territories are excluded). You can use it at multiple stores, in person or online.
Report a lost or stolen Card immediately by calling 1-866-262-7438. You may also write to us at Visa Debit Processing Service, P.O. Box 026098, Miami, FL 33103. If you tell us within 2 business days after you discover the loss or theft of your Card, you won’t be liable for losses if your Card was used without your permission. If you don’t tell us within 2 business days, you may be liable.
When giving as a gift, provide the recipient with all materials you received when you purchased the Card, including Terms and Conditions for use. If you’re giving the Card to someone who has little Card-use experience, you may wish to review the materials together.
If the Card was ordered online and personalized with a name, the initial value is printed on the front of the Gift Card. If your Card was purchased in a branch and isn’t personalized, the initial value should be included in the materials that came with your Card. To check your balance online, go to navyfederal.org/mygiftcard, click “Sign In” and follow the instructions.
It’s important to know your remaining balance before you make a purchase. Your purchase could be denied if it’s greater than your balance. Keep a record of your purchases and remaining balance.
Navy Federal Visa Gift Cards can be purchased in $1 increments, between $15 and $500.
You should keep your Card until you know you won’t be returning anything you purchased with it. If you try to make a return, the store may require you to present the Card you used to make the purchase. Once you’re sure there’s no further need, destroy the Card.
Using your Navy Federal Visa Gift Card is similar to using a debit card. When you’re ready to pay, select CREDIT, sign the receipt and go! Or, select DEBIT if prompted and enter your PIN.
Each time your Card is used for a purchase, the amount is automatically deducted from your balance. It’s recommended that you know your balance before making a purchase because some merchants won’t be able to provide that information.
To make a purchase in an amount greater than the available balance, you’ll need to use a second form of payment to cover the difference.
Tell the cashier the amount you’d like applied to your Navy Federal Visa Gift Card, then pay the balance with your second payment method.
If your purchase is declined after you’ve verified the Card has sufficient funds, call the toll-free number listed on the back of the Gift Card.
Let the cashier know you want to cancel the purchase. If the merchant cancels a transaction after it was processed, it will take 3 to 7 days for the authorization hold to be removed from your Card and the funds to become available again.
If you decide to return merchandise purchased with your Navy Federal Visa Gift Card, you may be asked to present the Card to process that return. Be sure to hold onto your purchase receipts and your Card—even after the balance is depleted. If store policy is to credit the Card used to make a purchase, it will take 3 to 7 days to be added back to the available balance on the Card. When returning an item purchased online, you may need to provide your Gift Card number.
The funds on your Gift Card expire on the date displayed on the front of the Card. You can make purchases using your Card until the expiration date or the full value of the Card is depleted. Cards purchased at our Arizona branches are exempt from expiration—even though they have an expiration date displayed on the front. You may request a replacement Card if funds are left on the Card after the expiration date.
