When it comes to purchasing e gift cards online, or for that matter asking for an e gift card online, the first online site that comes to mind is amazon.com. There is nothing more satisfying than to receive or buy e gift cards online from this company. Their process is user-friendly, and affords everyone who receives this e gift the opportunity to purchase anything from their incredibly large inventory of products; ranging literally from soup to nuts.
How does one buy e gift cards online? In the case of amazon.com, simply go to their website and click on gift certificates. You can buy an e gift card anywhere from $5.00 to $5000.00. Furthermore, you can customize the e card with a message, and either sends it via email or with an e-card using regular mail service. Amazon.com gift certificates can be used to purchase almost anything in their store, including most items sold by Marketplace sellers and Amazon Merchants. Here is a little background on how the process works.
When you enter the certificate’s claim code for the first time, the certificate is automatically redeemed onto your account, and this information is logged into our database, even if you don’t place an order at that time. After you have entered the claim code once, you do not need to enter it again–even if you back up and change other information in the course of placing your order. If you receive an error message that the gift certificate has been redeemed, and the funds are not being applied to your order, it could be that you have more than one Amazon.com account, and that the funds are redeemed to one of your other accounts.
Gift certificates and unused portions of gift certificates should be spent within 18 months from the date of issuance, which is the listed as the spend by date included on the gift certificate. Gift certificate holders will be given an additional 6-month grace period to spend their gift certificates, and gift certificates and unused portions of gift certificates will expire two years from the date of issuance, which is the expires date included on the gift certificate.
It is also important to note once you buy e gift cards online through amazon.com, they are not redeemable for cash and cannot be returned for a cash refund, except to the extent required by law. Any unused balance will be placed in the recipient’s gift certificate account, and is not transferable. The original expiration date will apply to any unused balance. Be assured, once you buy e gift cards online, you may not choose any other method.
