3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be better., 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amazon.co.uk Printable Gift Card (Ecard Gift Certificate)
I bought a bunch of gift cards to give out as Christmas presents. While it is a great gift as it give people plenty of options on what to buy, there were some problem / areas for improvement:
- I wish I could give each gift card a name, so I would be able to know WHO redeemed them or not, rather than knowing that "a" gift card was redeemed and "another" one not yet
- Some people had problems in using their gift cards:
- in one instance a friend bought a bunch of books and the total cost surpassed the gift value. Instead of Amazon using his gift card + the rest from his other payment form, they debited everything from his credit card without giving him an option. When he wrote to Amazon inquiring about that they basically told him that this is how it works and there was nothing they could do - if the total value is bigger than the balance in the gift card, tough luck, Amazon will debt from another source
- in another instance the person bought Kindle books but didn't want to use his gift card, instead wanted to use his credit card to pay for them instead. Again, that option wasn't available (or at least not easily), the gift card is the first one from where your money will come out until it is exhausted
- Gift cards bought in Amazon.co.uk, can only be used in that same site, if you try to redeem it in amazon.com, for example, it won't allow you so. As a result, some people couldn't get what they wanted as it was only available or cheaper in amazon.com
