The top section of this article outlines how to purchase a Gift Card on Outschool. Please scroll down to learn more about redeeming your Gift Card.

Purchasing a Gift Card

To purchase a Gift Card on Outschool, make sure you are first logged into your account. If you do not have an Outschool account, you will need to create one here in order to purchase your Gift Card.

Next, go to outschool.com/giftcard, and use the “Give a gift card” button to begin your purchase.

Input your information into the purchase window to create your gift card.

Once you complete your purchase, you’ll see your gift card order number and your recipient’s redemption code. You’ll receive a purchase receipt via email immediately, as well.

Redeeming your Outschool Credit

When you receive a gift card from Outschool, you’ll see it appear immediately in your email inbox. To redeem your gift, either click the “Claim Your Outschool Gift Card” button or go to outschool.com/redeem to redeem your gift.

If you’re not already an Outschool parent, you’ll be asked to create an account with us.

If you already have an Outschool account and are logged in, redeem your gift card by entering your redemption code at outschool.com/giftcard/redeem, or via the link in your emailed gift card from Outschool.

Once redeemed, you’ll see the following purchase confirmation. You’ll also see your Outschool Credit appear on the enrollment form when you purchase a class.

Purchasing a Class with Outschool Credit

To purchase a class on Outschool, head to Outschool.com and select the class of your choice. When you reach the enrollment form, you’ll see your Outschool Credit appear.

If you’re enrolling in a class using Outschool Credit for a learner under the age of 13, you’ll be asked to provide consent to the enrollment by first agreeing to Outschool’s privacy policy, specifically COPPA, to ensure you understand our practices related to your learner’s safety and security on our platform.

Once you select “Finish Enrolling,” you’ll be asked to enter your credit card information for the limited purpose of providing identity verification. In other words, your use of a credit card serves as proof that you are the learner’s parent or guardian.

If you’re paying for your enrollment with Outschool Credit, you will not be charged for the class. You’ll only be charged to the credit card on file once you exceed the amount of Outschool Credit on your account, as shown below.

If you use Outschool Credit to purchase an Ongoing class, your Outschool Credit will be charged for the class's weekly subscription fee, until your credit is depleted. Then the subscription will charge to your credit card on file.

You can view your Outschool credit balance, credit redemptions, and all Outschool transactions on your Transactions page.

You can also see your current Outschool credit balance in your account settings, next to Credits.
