How to Buy an Amazon Gift Card By an eHow Contributor

Found This Helpful

Purchasing an Amazon gift card can be a great way to deliver a winning gift without knowing someone's specific tastes. In fact, to buy an Amazon gift card, you don't even have to know the recipient's name. Follow these tips to buy an Amazon gift card from Amazon's official website.

Instructions

  • 1. Visit Amazon's official website and sign into your account. Select the "Gift Card" link from the top of the menu list.

  • 2. Read the information provided about Amazon Gift Cards. Be sure to review the terms and conditions of purchasing and using a gift card. Agree to these terms and conditions before proceeding.

  • 3. Decide on the format of gift card you want to purchase. Amazon gift cards are available in electronic, printable and mailable formats. The format you choose largely depends on your preference and the information you have available on the intended recipient. Electronic formats enable purchasers with only a recipient's email address to deliver the gift card; mailable gift cards need a valid, physical address for delivery; printable gift cards don't require a name or an email address.

  • 4. Click "Buy Now" under the preferred gift card format.

  • 5. Enter a gift card amount between $5 and $5, 000. Type the rest of the required information. Depending on your format choice, the required information may include email addresses, first and last names or a mailing address. Add a message to personalize your gift card.

  • 6. Choose "Continue" when done. Select a payment method and authorize the transaction.

  • 7. Review the successful payment and information page. Read and follow any additional instructions or advisements about your gift card purchase.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have all of a recipient's information available to you, consider choosing an electronic format for your gift card. Emailing the Amazon gift card ensures speedy delivery and reduces the risk of the gift card getting lost. It also uses less paper.

  • For help on purchasing, using or receiving an Amazon gift card, consult the FAQ page located on the main Amazon gift card page.

  • Mailed gift cards require about a week for delivery.
