HI there,
You can go to Promotions > shopping cart price rules and add your gift card there - when the user with the gift card goes to checkout they can enter thier gift card number in the ‘discount’ filed and it will deduct the value of the gift card from the order.

Cheers
Adam

Ok, Im there in the demo...but not sure how to set the rules.  If I want the card to never expire, do I leave it blank? And if I want the customer to use the gift card as often as he/she likes until they run out of the gift card balance, do I leave uses per customer “blank” and/or uses per coupon “blank”

Is there also a place a customer can check their gift card balance?

Is there a way to create a GIFT CARD in magento so customer can buy one and the gift code is auto generated and emailed to him/her?

Thanks again!

What you are looking for is a Gift Certificate
Gift Certificate is not available in Magento in out of the box version.
