Kindle Cards

Kindle Cards offer Kindle books and Kindle Unlimited subscriptions in the form of a physical card, which can be gifted to friends or family members.

Kindle Cards are Amazon.com Gift Cards that depict popular Kindle books and Kindle Unlimited subscriptions in the form of a physical card, which can be gifted to friends or family members or applied to your own account. Included on each Kindle Card is a description of the Kindle book or Kindle Unlimited subscription, and instructions for redeeming the book or subscription to the desired account once the card has been activated at the store register.

Recipients may also choose to instead redeem cards to their Amazon.com Gift Card Balance to shop among millions of items storewide on Amazon.com.

Kindle Cards are currently available at select Bartell Drugs locations across Washington state. We recommend contacting your local Bartell Drugs store to verify if they sell Kindle Cards and check on-hand availability.
