Answer
We are excited to offer gift cards to make it more convenient to pre-pay for your Sling TV subscription or give as gifts without the need for a credit card. Gift cards are available in amounts of $25 at Walmart and varying amounts of $25-$100 at Best Buy and GameStop. Digital gift cards can be purchased online from egifter.com or paypal.com. Gift card customers must purchase a minimum of one month of service and all taxes must be paid by the user.

You can receive seven extra days free if you add a credit card to your account. These days of service will be added on top of the amount you have already redeemed with your gift card. 

Check out these additional details to guide you through what you need to know most about your gift card.
  • To use your gift card scratch the PIN code area gently on the back of your card. Enter the PIN code at sling.com/gift. For the full step-by-step, click here.
  • If you already have a Sling TV account and want to add a gift card, log-in to My Account with your credentials and click Add Gift Card. 
  • If your gift balance isn’t enough to pay for a full month, you must choose different services or enter an additional method of payment using either another gift card or a credit or debit card.
  • If your gift balance is more than the cost of one month of service, the cost of the selected service will be prorated as extra days of service.
  • When changing your subscription and adding a credit card, you will still receive seven days free. The seven days free will be added to your previous service selection before your account changes to your new selection.
  • We will notify you via email when your gift card subscription is about to end.
