eGift Certificates and Store Credit

Purchasing an eGift Certificate

The Met Store offers eGift Certificates that can be sent via email. The eGift Certificates are available in denominations of $25.00, $50.00, $75.00, $100.00, $150.00, and $200.00. When purchasing an eGift Certificate, be sure to verify that you have correctly entered the recipient's email address as eGift certificates can only be redeemed by the owner of the email address entered. We unfortunately cannot redirect or refund eGift Certificates sent to an incorrect email address. See Terms & Conditions below.

Redeeming an eGift Certificate

In order to redeem your eGift Certificate you will need to sign into The Met Store using the email address at which you received the eGift Certificate so that we can verify the email address. When you are ready to check out, click on the “Redeem an eGift Certificate” link in the Additional Services area on the Order Review page. You will need to enter the claim code located in the email you received from The Met Store. If the amount of the eGift Certificate does not cover the order total, you will need to pay the balance by credit or debit card. If the amount of the eGift Certificate exceeds the order total, the balance will be converted to Store Credit that will then be stored in your account and applied automatically to your next order. See Terms & Conditions below. For assistance with your eGift Certificate, please contact Customer Service.
