It's not unheard of to receive Amazon gift cards from friends and family for special occasions, but it isn't always clear how much money is left on them.

If you've already redeemed it, you can check the Amazon gift card balance when you look at the Gift Card page. If you haven't redeemed it yet, you'll see the balance on the card once you redeem it on the Amazon website.
