Giving to KNOM with Gift Cards and eCODES

How to help KNOM with unused gift cards:

  • Mail gift cards to KNOM, PO Box 988, Nome, AK 99762. It’s a good idea to sandwich it between two papers or index cards so it doesn’t get ruined during automated postal processing.
  • Email eCODEs (electronic gift card codes) to

Please note:

  • Be sure to include your name and address/email so we know whom to thank.
  • We’ve been advised that gift cards are probably not tax deductible, be sure to check with your tax accountant if this is important to you.

The fine print:

  1. Gift cards and eCODEs must have a minimum of $10 in value remaining.
  2. Gift cards and eCODEs must be transferrable.
  3. KNOM can redeem gift cards and eCODEs from nearly 400 vendors, including restaurant chains.

How it works:

  1. KNOM collects and tallies the cards/codes.
  2. We bundle the cards/codes in a batch and mail/email them to a broker.
  3. The broker will determine a buy-back value (usually 15% discount rate of face value).
  4. The broker sends a check to KNOM or exchanges for cards KNOM can use (at a lower discount rate).


We’ll use the 100% of the value of cards for things we need now:

  • and Best Buy for engineering supplies and equipment
  • Sears for a dishwasher
  • Hewlett Packard for a copier
  • Apple for computers and accessories
  • iTunes for music downloads
  • Office Max/Staples for paper and office supplies
  • LL Bean for volunteer house bedding

Thanks so much for your support!
