Amazon gift card holders can find their remaining card balance by registering the card to an existing Amazon account. Amazon's system automatically records any gift cards that were applied using an online account or registered to an existing account for any purchases. This balance can be viewed at any time by going to the View Gift Card balance option in the Amazon account. Amazon gift card holders can also use their Amazon account to view any transactions made on it.
Customers can purchase Amazon gift cards through the company's website, and customers can receive the card through three different methods: as an eGift, through physical mail or in digital printable form. Amazon gift cards can also be reloaded through the Amazon website and do not have an expiry date. Goods purchasable using an Amazon gift card include a majority of the products found on Amazon.com or on various affiliated websites, such as MyHabit.com. Amazon gift cards cannot be used to purchase another Amazon gift card.
Amazon gift cards can be purchased for either personal use or as a gift. These gift cards are also available for specific occasions, such as birthdays, congratulatory messages or as a simple thank you gift.
