What can you say. If you are fed up with buying people things they do not need, want or have any use for, then one of these is the perfect alternative. Instead of another pair of underpants, socks, handkerchiefs and box of sugar, let the recipient choose how they want to spend that loose change that you were going to spend on them .
Be aware though, the recipient does not ALWAYS receive the email notification, so you might want to check that they have received it. Rather annoying if it was meant to be a surprise !! This is why the review has been marked down 1 point , else it would have been 5.
I chose this rating because of my purchase experience, not because of the card. I am in the US. I was buying for someone in the UK. It's a long story but I did research ahead of time to get bank exchange rate. Your rate is very different. I found a use preference to show conversion of dollars to euros (help msg said it would appear before I bought the card). I set preference to true. But when I went to buy the gift card, the dollar conversion NEVER appeared, and I ended up guessing and overspending on the card. I was not happy.
No, I am not happy with this gift certificate. I have an account in the US not the UK and it would not allow me to use it for my kindle and it was worthless for me to order anything on as I live in another country. I have never used it. When I wrote for an inquiry there was no way to shift a credit to the US side.
it is an email gift card. it arrived on a computer via email to the person whose email address I entered. they opened up the mail to find an Amazon email gift card for ten pounds. they spent the ten pounds at Amazon through the computer from a gift card worth ten pounds that arrived via email.
I ordered this for someone who lives in USA. I did not realise at the time that he could not use it there. I had him cancel and Amazon refunded my money. The helpline was very helpful in this matter. I do think gift cards are a good idea, and would use them again
This was an excellent idea for a gift, especially when ideas for gifts are a little difficult to come up with. This was the perfect solution and I would certainly consider an E-mail Amazon Gift Certificate for future presents!
