Chili's Gift Card Balance

    Chili’s is part of a family of similar restaurants that include the following:

    1. Chili’s

    2. On The Border

    3. Maggiano’s Little Italy

    When you look at your gift card, if it only has the name Chili’s printed on it, then it only applies to that chain. If the card has all of those names printed on it, it is a card that you can apply toward your purchase for an online pickup or a dining-in experience at any of the locations.

    Either way, how do you check on your remaining Chili’s gift card balance? We show you how to check in less than 1 minute!
