When you first received an Amazon gift card, did you think you could only use it for shopping? Actually no, Amazon gift cards can be used as a payment method in many other places, and you can even use them to get cash. Here are 8 Ways You Can Use Your Gift Card. (Including One That Will Surprise You)
Where can I buy cheaper gift cards?
1. Amazon’s sales will be discounted
It is most convenient and safe to buy gift cards directly on Amazon. But such deals don’t come up often. Discounts are usually implemented on big promotions such as Prime Day or Black Friday.
In case of a discount on gift cards, you can buy more than one.
The following retailers all support the sale of Amazon Gift Cards, just choose an offline retailer near your home to buy.
- Whole Foods
- Circle K
- Dollar General
- Best Buy
- Butera Market
- Food Lion
3. Third-party gift card sites
You can buy Amazon gift cards on third-party gift card sites. Third-party gift card sites are less reliable than Amazon’s, but they can often buy gift cards for less than the face value of the gift card, such as $95 for a $100 gift card.
8 Ways You Can Use Your Gift Cards
There are many other great ways to use an Amazon gift card besides buying products, but they all have to do with Amazon in a way.
1. Subscribe To Amazon Prime Membership
If you’re a loyal Amazon user, you know the benefits of Amazon Prime. Although Amazon Prime subscription fees have now risen to monthly ($12.99/month) or yearly ($119/year), there are still a lot of subscriptions because of Amazon Prime’s great value service.
You can use your Amazon gift card to pay for your Amazon Prime subscription.
Your credit card will be automatically charged after the gift card amount is spent. If you do not wish to automatically renew your Amazon Prime subscription, please contact customer service to cancel your subscription.
2.Read on Amazon Kindle
If you’re an avid reader, use your Amazon gift card funds to buy more books for your Kindle. Whether it’s novels, magazines, or science textbooks, you can find books that satisfy you on Kindle. And there are many free books to read on Kindle Unlimited, all of which are activities during the promotion of new books.
While you can use gift cards to buy books on your Kindle, you can’t use gift cards directly with Audible.
3.Amazon Fresh Order
Amazon Fresh delivers groceries and everyday essentials quickly to your home. In general, you can get free same-day shipping on orders over $35. But using Amazon gift cards directly from Whole Foods is not accepted because they are two different services and processes.
There will be different categories of activities on Amazon every month (the Amazon activities in August are still being updated). You can choose the products with great discounts to choose to buy. At the same time, Amazon Prime members will get additional discounts.
5.Amazon Store Shopping
In many metropolitan areas, Amazon is opening brick-and-mortar stores selling their favorite products. Amazon’s physical store will launch promotions from time to time to promote quickly. The payment method using gift cards will speed up so that the queue time is greatly reduced. Both physical and digital gift cards can be used at all physical Amazon locations.
There are three types of stores that sell different items:
- Amazon Books: Books, Electronics, Toys & Knickknacks
- Amazon 4 Stars: Items rated 4 stars or higher in all categories
- Amazon Go: grab-and-go snacks and beverages
See if there is a physical Amazon store near you!
Very few other retailers support Amazon gift cards as a payment method. But there are still several retailers that will accept Amazon gift cards.
Some online retailers that accept Amazon gift cards include:
- Adam and Eve
- All saints.com
- Auto part warehouse
- Beach Camera
- Daily Steals
7.Sell your gift card
If you have a lot of gift cards but can’t use them all, consider selling them. Because there are so many ways to get a gift card, some survey sites can only send rewards through gift cards, but they can sell it even if they don’t want to use a gift card.
The websites I use frequently include the following, all of which are credible and highly rated.

8.Gift to a friend
While this method doesn’t earn you money, it also saves you money on other gifts. You can choose to present a physical card or an electronic card. Gift cards can be given as long as they have not been redeemed and have no expiration date.
I believe your friends will also be very happy to get gift cards.

The use of Amazon gift cards does have certain limitations and is not as useful as cash. But just shopping on Amazon already consumes most gift cards. Plus the gift card has no expiration date which means you can choose to use it anytime you get a gift card. I don’t find it a nuisance to have a lot of gift cards.
But if you don’t want to have a gift card, you can choose to sell it for cash.
