List of gift card brands not found at Meijer
Despite its vast selection of gift cards, there are a few popular brands whose gift cards are not sold at Meijer. I will give you a list of the same, as well as guide you on how and where you can get some of these brands.
1. Ulta Beauty
Like its name suggests, Ulta beauty mainly deals with beauty products. Ulta gift cards are redeemable for any beauty service or product, including makeup and salon services, at Ulta.com, which is a customer service representative aid. These gift cards can be bought in any amount up to $500 at their supply stores. Retail stores that sell Ulta Beauty gift cards include BJ’s Wholesale Club, Giant Eagle, Kroger and Sam’s Club.
At BJ’s Wholesale Club, you can get Ulta Beauty cards for amounts ranging from $25 to $500, while some are even available at a discount. They are only available in physical form, with no additional purchase fees. Shipping of physical gift cards is also free.

About half of the contacted Kroger stores had Ulta Beauty gift cards in stock.

Meijer does not sell Amazon gift cards. However, there are several other stores that sell Amazon gift cards in the US so you have no shortage of alternatives.
Apart from Amazon gift cards, you might also want to get Kindle gift cards. You can purchase Kindle Gift Cards, whether plastic or digital, through Amazon’s apps and sites, or even from Amazon Store locations.
Kindle Gift Cards are valid for purchasing digital content such as Kindle eBooks via Amazon. However, they cannot be used to purchase other products on Amazon.
You can also purchase Kindle Gift Cards from other retailers like Fry’s Food Stores, Meijer, Staples, Wegmans, Office Depot, and OfficeMax. This includes whether each store sells real or digital gift cards, the amount available, additional charges and restrictions.
Fry’s Food Stores sells plastic Kindle gift cards in amounts of $60, with no additional fees charged. Gift cards are non-returnable and cannot be bought online.
Meijer offers digital Kindle gift cards at $25. Gift cards are non-returnable, non-refundable, not available online and do not include additional purchase fees.

They are only available in plastic form in amounts of $25, with no additional fees. They are also non-returnable after purchase.
3. Victoria’s Secret
I contacted various retailers, grocery and pharmacy stores in New York, Arizona and Illinois with the aim of finding out other places you can purchase Victoria’s Secret gift cards apart from the VS stores. The result was that Best Buy is the only confirmed store that sells the gift cards, as there are no other retail stores that do this. I will list other options for buying Victoria’s Secret gift cards, apart from the retailer’s website and stores.
Gift cards can be purchased in dollar amounts within the range of $10 and $500, with no purchasing fees. At either store, you can interchangeably use Victoria’s Secret and PINK gift cards. Redeeming Victoria’s Secret gift cards is also possible online or via phone.
At Best Buy, Victoria’s Secret cards go for $50 while PINK cards go for $20. For both cases, there are no additional fees to be included. If none of these alternatives work for you, purchasing Victoria’s Secret gift cards at VictoriasSecret.com is always an option. They offer free shipping on the cards and what’s more, any purchase of gift cards at their stores includes a VS bag and tissue paper, all free of charge. PINK gift card purchases at PINK stores always come in a pink striped box. If you wish, you can choose from several card designs online and buy either physical cards or e-gift delivery.
Target gift cards are not available at ALDI, but can be bought in-store at Target, at Target.com and at other retailers. They are usually offered in a variety of denominations too.
