How do I utilize Amazon gift cards ?

If you received a gift card via email, click on the link to apply it to your account. Any eBooks purchased always come off the gift card amount first. Any other purchases, you can specify in your cart to use the gift card or not.

Apply the gift card to your Amazon account.

Can I use an Amazon gift card to pay my monthly fees for Kindle unlimited?

No, gift cards can't be used to pay subscriptions.

This sort of bums me out. My stepmom pays for subscriptions to (paper, mail-delivered) magazines for both of my kids. It's too bad subscriptions and memberships can't be gifted that way.

The only subscription I know of that can be gifted is Prime, and that only became possible recently - less than a year ago, I think.

I'd think money is money is money. Who cares what it's spent on?

Although ... [extrapolating, please stand by ... extrapola...] I know when I worked retail, the accountants HATED gift cards, because they're a future cost liability.

Amazon would be honoring a card that was bought (and accounted for) in the past, applied now, against an ongoing service... hmmmn...

No, it shouldn't matter. They have their money; what it's used toward, whether durable goods, food, digital materials, or ongoing services, shouldn't matter.

I want to buy my grandson a kindle. He doesn't have a credit card. If I keep him supplied with gift cards will he be able to buy books? I hope to be able to send him a new card when he runs low on credit. Will this work or does a customer have to have a card on file?

You can fund your grandson's account with gift cards. If he is in the U.S., he just needs to have a valid 1-click billing address in his account.
