How to Split a Payment at HomeDepot


How to Split a Payment at HomeDepot

If you're looking to do some home improvement soon this little trick will help you manage your finances... especially when it comes to buying that expensive drill press...

The trick is to split your payment online by buying a Home Depot gift card.

You can go to and buy a gift card for about half of the value of the thing that you want to purchase by going to their gift card page. The page looks like this:

When you arrive on the gift card page, it will ask you to select the amount of money you would like to load on to a gift card. You have the option to print or email the gift card. The recipient's name, recipient's email and purchaser's name are all required fields for this form.

Some things to note about buying gift cards at Home Depot:

  • You can buy gift cards for pre-set amounts or you can type in your own amount as long as it is between $25 and $500.
  • You can buy ten gift cards at a time. That's $5,000 worth of gift cards in an order. However, that's quite a lot and you'll probably not need that much.

When you go to buy your item, you'll be prompted to enter in the gift card information as well as your primary payment method:

As you can see, you can apply ten gift cards to the same order and then pay for the rest of the order with your primary form of payment.
