Since I read alot, just like everyone with a kindle. Is it possible to buy Kindle Book gift Cards. Every Holiday or B-day somebody gets me a card for Waldenbooks or one of the others. I could drop some serious hints if there was some way to get one for the Kindle.
Here's the link to the page at which one can purchase a gift card. https://www.amazon.com/gp/gc/order-email/ref=g_gc-dp_lp_email There really isn't any need for a kindle specific gift card because kindle purchases will automatically be deducted from any gift card balance you have. Nevertheless you can use the "click to select design feature" to change the art on the gift card, specifying that it was intended for the purchase of kindle books.
If you have any other inquiries it would make more sense to visit the kindle forums.
I recently purchased a book through Amazon.com and the book came from Alibris Books ID# 1518571162. Is there any way I could see the original description of the book as posted. Amazon Marketplace order # 103-9946318-7073863? John Howell
Yes. Just buy an Amazon gift card through their web site and it automatically applies to your purchase.You have to have an amazon account(It's simple and free), and go to your 'account info' after you signed on. When you receive a gift card by e-mail, you redeem it by signing in and applying the card number in the box when asked. It is automatically applied and your set! Shop away.
Using an Amazon Gift Card to buy content from the Kindle store is easy. Simply redeem the Gift Card to your Amazon.com account before you make a purchase. When you click the "Buy with 1-Click" button, any available Gift Card balance on your account will automatically be applied to the purchase before your credit or debit card is charged.
Content from the Amazon Kindle store is only available to customers with a credit or debit card issued by a U.S bank with a U.S. billing address listed as the default 1-Click payment method. To successfully complete your purchase, you must have a valid payment method listed even if you intend to pay for your entire purchase with a Gift Card.
Note: Amazon Gift Cards cannot be used to pay subscription fees.
Information on this topic also appears on the Kindle Support pages at this URL:
I just want to say that I was also confused by the 1-click button when trying to use a gift card. I am glad I found this page- but was only able to find it via a search in google. The amazon search failed me completely.
It would be helpful if this information was easily available when you are making a purchase. I guess in general I hate "1-click". "2-click" might be much better- 1 click to start the process and bring you to another page to verify what is actually going to happen when you purchase it (i.e., it will remove x dollars from you gift card or from a certain credit card account), and another click to finalize the purchase. This would have saved me 30 minutes or so of confusion trying to purchase kindle books with a gift card.
My cousin was stationed in Iraq a few years ago and all he wanted for Christmas was peanut butter and Amazon gift cards. Now, he didn't have a kindle, but the principle still applies. Plus, even if the serviceman you're thinking of chooses not to apply the card to the kindle, Amazon can ship to him at his APO address for the same shipping cost as if he were ordering in the states. You've got a great gift idea! :)
I totally agree with Michael on this 1 click stuff. My Dad is 84 and he wants a CONFIRMATION that YES this IS going to happen--if you are wanting older people to link their credit card with buying books,,, they need a little 'reassurance',,, if you know what I mean.Plus the gift card??? What about if you want to get a family member a gift card,,,, do you need to know their info??? I live in another country than my family, and do not use whisper link,,, I link via computer,,,,but would like to give KINDLE gift cards to family.Surely there is a simpler way.??
"The American Heritage Book of English Usage (1996) states that " alot is still considered an error in print" but notes that standard words have formed by fusion of the article with a noun, such as another and awhile, and suggests the possibility that alot may like them eventually enter standard usage."
Just thinking ahead......ahead, thats another one. I bet there are alot of them.
Check CVS or Big Y, if you have those in your area, Big Y has Amazon "Kindle" giftcards for $25 but I'm pretty sure they can be used for anything on amazon. I also saw regular looking amazon giftcards at cvs.
If you knew anything you would know that reading and spelling dont have anything to do with each other and didnt anyone teach you that if you dont have anything nice to say you shouldnt say anything at all
Re: the post by L. Bradley, and totally off the subject of the original discussion - I really don't like change to our language that take place because of ignorance or laziness, 'alot' is one of them, "he wanted to go with Chloe and 'I'" is another and so is the misuse of "literally", which I hear just about every day, even on the national news. Thanks putting at least one of these goofs in a less crazy-making context.
I had the same issue trying to use an Amazon gift card, but my gift card balance wasn't showing in the checkout process. After signing back in to cancel my order, I chatted with an agent who finally told me that if you have any other gift cards in your shopping cart, it won't give you the option to use the credit of your Amazon gift card. I had to remove the gift card from my cart to make it available.
I agree I was really confused when trying to use my amazon gift card to buy my kindle books. It should be explained on there some where. I was worried even though I redeemed my gift card that it was my credit card that would be charged. I also found this on Google.
This is ridiculous. Why does one need a credit card linked to the account to use a gift voucher?
My 11 year old daughter is an avid reader, so I bought her a Kindle. I also bought her a gift voucher so she could get some books, but the stupid Kindle says she needs a credit card to make a purchase. Really???
I would not give my 11 year old daughter a credit-card, and I am certainly not going to give her unrestrained access via an Amazon account.
I used to think the Kindle was great and raved about it to friends, but my latest purchase for my daughter has effectively been rendered a worthless piece of plastic by Amazon's ludicrous policies.
