I work full time in a fast food restaurant and i don't get that much time to buy gifts and i offen forget about it. So few days back it was my sister's birthday and i almost forgot about it. When i did remember, it was already night and i had work the next day. To buy her a gift i had to go shopping at store open hours which was impossible for me cause i had to stay the whole day at work and buying something online was the only option but it would take 2 days minimum to reach and the birthday party was the next day so then my husband gave me an idea of why buying an amazon gift card online because my sister loves buying diapers and other stuffs from online. And there was also a deal going on on the gift cards, that is if i purchase a gift card worth 50$+ then i will get 10$ cash back on it (i don't know if they still have the deal or not).
When i was purchasing it i had to provide my sister's email address and had the option to personalize my gift card and also had the option to set the time when i wanted to send her the gift card (which i think is a great option) and i set the time to 12 mid-night. As soon as it was mid night, i received a call from my sister thanking me and letting me know that she was very happy with the gift. The gift was sent instantly to my sister as promised. And the next day i even got my 10$ back 😀

I usually get prepaid visa gift cards from my family on special occasions/holidays. When i use the balance of the card on other sites and am left with less than 5 bucks, i usually buy an amazon gift card with the remaining amount. That's the only thing its good for - custom amount gift cards with no minimum amount restriction.

Even though the selection of products pails in comparison to, i've been slowly building up my balance to save for a big purchase later on.

Oh and gift cards cannot be used for I found out the hard way the first time around.

Bought one on Prime Day for $30, and got $5 for myself... which I then wasted on tiny boxing gloves keychains Ringside Small Boxing Glove Key Ring, Black single serving Pringles Pringles Sour, Cream and Onion, 39gm, Spongebob stickers Unique SpongeBob SquarePants Sticker Sheets, 8ct, and a Disney cup Unique Disney Cars Plastic Cup, 16-Ounce. Hey, at least it was all free, right?

Super quick turnaround on the gift card - it arrived by email within a minute or two.

Amazon sells basically everything you can think of, so you can't go wrong with getting a gift card through amazon for someone.

This makes every occasion so much easier to give a gift. As many of you, I find it hard to pick a personalized gift for everyone and most people now have amazon accounts. With this e-mail gift card, you know they won't lose the physical card and you know they'll be able to get something they actually really want for themselves instead of guessing through their wish list or getting something they'll pretend they like, we've all been through that.

It's safe and secure and I've personally never had any problems sending or receiving one, it's become the new household gift and we all are much happier ordering through Amazon.

Need a gift for my Mom on Mother's Day - and we live about 1.5 hours apart. This method of sending a card and a gift card elicited a heartfelt thanks from Mom - who is hard to please! Additionally, a pretty email card was sent as well. I will be using this system of gift-giving again as most of our family and friends live at distances. Email confirmations were sent, as I chose to delay delivery. So, order when you're able and the Gift Email will be delivered on the day of the occasion. (Sorry no photo!)

Make sure you are on the correct site. The .com and the .ca site are two different entities.There are WAY to many restrictions on where you can spend these once purchased. So don't buy without having an item and the correct site selected.

Also you will notice the .ca site only has 10% of the goods available. If this is going to be the recipients first experience with Amazon. If you're not there to hold their hand. This can be very frustrating and aggravating for the person you gifted it too. Nearly every time it will send you to the .com site from a link or google search. Only to start ordering and find out it's not available on the .ca site and not available to ship to Canada. This experience makes this seemingly easy quick choice more than likely not a stress free joyful gift it's meant to be. Why aren't the same amount and variety of choices in products available in Canada? To the US on many sites (Netflix) 10% of the population means only 10% of the items need to be available.

I sent this electronic Amazon gift card to my daughter out west for her birthday. I like that I simply emailed it to her, and she was able to pick out exactly what she wanted, and have it delivered to her home ... no more endless shopping, wrapping parcels and standing in line at Cda. Post. Love it! Win-win for both of us.

Delivery was fast and efficient. It took less than 5 minutes to receive the code from Amazon. The bonus perk was an added incentive. If you could wait for bonus days wherein you would get an extra $5 or $10 dollars on top of the amount of the card then wait it out but regardless if there wasnt, there's tons of products you can get on Amazon that have huge discounts so you'll be saving anyway

I purchased this gift card during a promotion where I received $10 for free to spend on something sold and shipped by Amazon Canada.

- The gift card was instantly delivered and applied to my account
- The gift card did not have any limitations itself

- The promotional money was only to be spent on Amazon made products which was a bit harder to find, but at the end of the day it is free money so it worked out for me (I got a PS+ card)

on April 19, 2016 Gift Card - Email - Eye Heart YouEasy and virtually instantaneous delivery! All you do is select the amount you'd like for the gift card, fill in some basic information including the recipients e-mail address, pay for it and you're done! This is a great way to give a last minute gift and since you can pay almost anything on Amazon, you can be certain that the recipient will get something they like.

As for the design of the virtual gift card, I'm not a fan of the design, but it doesn't really matter as it's unlikely the recipient will take much note or care much what it looks like.
