You should be able to pay for iCloud with a gift card, but you still require an active credit card on file. Basically when the gift card is on the account as a credit any purchases made are charged to the account credit first, once the account credit is zero then the credit card is used. The downside to using a gift card if you add it too soon it'll be used for App, Music, Movies, and other content purchases first. Currently there is no way too tell the system to use the account credit for one single purpose.

Thank you for the reply.

I have an active credit card on file but would like to use the gift card instead for additional icloud storage. However, I don’t see where or how I’m given the option to do so when purchasing iCloud storage and the iTunes gift card is redemmed

If you have gift credit on your account profile, you may remove any credit card information listed there. You are not required to have a credit card on file if you have a credit balance.
