If you would like to purchase Amazon gift cards, you may do so from here (click on the banner below to access the correct page):


According to my latest search data, I can see that many of you are looking for where to buy Amazon gift cards, so with the holiday season approaching, I figured that I might as well give you an easy link to the correct page and perhaps save you some time.

Gift certificates such as these make an excellent “default” Christmas gift for people who are difficult to shop for because it allows the recipient to choose from a wide selection of available merchandise. They can be redeemed for almost all items sold through Amazon (the main exceptions are in-store pickup products, other gift cards, and auction purchases). There are four different methods of giving the cards:

  1. You can have them mailed to a physical address. This will take a few days, but the shipping is free.
  2. You can e-mail them for immediate delivery.
  3. You can print them out on your printer and give them to the recipient in a card, box, etc.
  4. You can add one or more gift cards to your shopping cart while purchasing other items.

Single gift cards can be purchased in $25, $50, or $100 denominations through the normal shopping cart interface, while multiple cards of $10, $25, or $50 can be purchased in boxes of 50. You can also choose a custom value from $5 to $5,000 for a personalized card. Unlike many other kinds of gift cards, the Amazon.com ones do not expire or carry hidden dormancy fees (effective October 1, 2005).

When redeeming a gift card, you can use the claim code located on the back of the card or in the e-mail to credit the amount toward a purchase OR you can apply the balance of the card to your existing Amazon.com account. This latter option is handy because it allows you to save unused balances of small amounts and apply them to future purchases without losing the money. It also allows you to use multiple gift cards by redeeming each of their claim codes to your account balance, after which you can either make a purchase or save the funds for later.
