Amazon gift vouchers are not universal Amazon currency! Restrictions apply, as we found out to our peril...
on 5 November 2016
For his birthday, I gave my son, who lives in New York, this gift voucher. To buy the voucher I was logged in on amazon.co.uk, where my account is. Then when my son went to use the voucher online at Amazon.com he was unable to purchase anything there got re-directed to the UK site. My son writes: " If I switch over to the U.K. site there is hardly anything on there with the option of shipping out to the States, and the things that do cost a fortune extra in shipping costs. I checked up with customer support and apparently they can't do any refunds once you've already redeemed the card. Maddening!"
I find it very frustrating and wish I had just sent money instead. Sad Mum.
