Subject: Get a $10 credit when you send a $50 Amazon Gift Card by text message

If you received that promotion email from Amazon, be very careful. My purchase experience with that promotion felt like a "bait & switch" by Amazon website. I clicked on the promotion email link and tried to buy a $50 gift card. I entered the phone number for texting the gift card and as I clicked "Buy Now" button, Amazon website reloaded the gift-card purchase page & prompted me to enter an email address because the delivery option was changed (by Amazon) to "Deliver by Email".

I was confused and tried it to start over two more times. Both times, after I entered a phone number where the gift card would be delivered to, and clicked on "Buy Now" button, Amazon website would reload the page and change to "Deliver by Email". Somewhat out of patience, I just proceeded to enter an email and completed the whole purchase.

After reading the fine print of this promotion, I realized that $10 credit is given only when the $50 gift card is delivered by text to a phone number.

To me, the whole experience is a "bait & switch". I wanted to buy $50 gift card and I followed the email link & entered a phone number. As I wanted to pay for the purchase, Amazon website changed the delivery option to "Deliver by Email" to mislead me into entering an email address to deliver the gift card. In turn, that would disqualify me for the $10 credit. What The Frank.
