Redeeming Amazon Giftcards

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Redeeming Amazon Giftcards

Post by Fuzaila » 30 Aug 2018, 11:45

Can we redeem the amazon giftcard received from Scott in our country's currency? Or do we have to visit amazon.com to redeem giftcards? If so, are book purchases possible that way?

No, you can only use them on Amazon. Yes, you can buy books with them.

How long does it take to receive the gift card after winning
He lays me besides still waters. He prepares a banquet before my enemies.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall not fear.

I was wondering if I can use the gift-card code to redeem the card in another account? Or, like, give it away?

You best contact Amazon and ask them.
