I never even got to use this. They took my money and never gave me the gift card!
AMAZON TOOK MY MONEY & NEVER PUT IT ON THE GIFT CARD!
December 10, 2016
When you pull the gift card off the inside of the card the adhesive is attached to the code to redeem and was partially ripped off. Thankfully, I tried to use the card myself instead of giving it to someone. I spent a half hour with customer service trying to get a refund when I found out what I could read was invalid. The packaging of this deserves a zero!

I ordered three gift cards for family members as Christmas presents and none of them were useable. I am still trying to work through Amazon's process to get this issue resolved (or at least a refund) and it has been so embarrassing, having my family try to use gift cards that weren't valid. I will never order gift cards through Amazon again.

DO NOT BUY THESE GIFT CARDS. AMAZON WILL NOT HONOR THEM. My father spent $175 to purchase 4 gift cards from Amazon - one $25 card and three $50 gift cards. NOT ONE OF THE $50 CARDS is redeemable! My husband and I were the recipients of three of the cards. When we tried to apply the Claim Code the only one that was "valid" was the $25 one. We had Amazon contact us and I was told by Joe, in a foreign land, that he could see the money on the cards, but they were sold buy a third party vendor and therefore he couldn't activate them. HELLO! MY FATHER ORDERED THEM FROM AMAZON.COM. We have the documentation to prove it. Joe told me I'd have to take them to the store my father purchased them at and have the store activate them. HOW THE HECK DO WE CARRY THEM TO AMAZON TO ACTIVATE?! Then to add insult to injury we discover from the receipt that the gift cards were sold by ACI Gift Cards, Inc. - a subsidiary of AMAZON. Double injury to insult # 2: one of the serial numbers on one of the cards that was sent doesn't match any of the serial numbers on the Order Details. Major SNAFU. Imagine being and elderly senior on a fixed income who spends important money on Christmas gifts for the family only to realize Amazon has denied use of cards (in one case hap haphazardly issued) by their gift card subsidiary. Amazon snatched Christmas away from my dad's family. I will be sharing this experience on all my social networking venues.
New word for Amazon: SCROOGE, SCROOGE, SCROOGE.

I was searching for a way to give an Amazon Gift Card as a wedding shower present. In this case I thought it a little tacky to print my own, and I was out of colored ink. I found this option on the Amazon website. I was able to find an appropriate card, and as a Prime member the greeting card with gift card attached was delivered to my home the next day.
I will definitely take advantage of this gift option again in the future.

This year I bought everything on what I thought was my son’s Wish List. When he opened the first gift he looked at me and asked why I bought him the gist he just opened, I told him it was on his wish list. It soon became apparent that I bought all of the gifts on another man’s wishlist that had the same name as my son...I ruined Christmas for two people. Thankfully, everything was Prime purchases and refunds were swift.

So, I purchased 40 of these and when I received them most of the envelopes had spilled coffee all over them. I appreciate we all have accidents, but seriously how hard would it have been to replace the envelopes.

We love giving Amazon gift cards to friends and family for their birthdays.
Small request: can you do them in multiples of $18 for bar and bat mitzvahs? Even just $18, $36 and $180 would be enough.
In Judaism, the letters in the Hebrew word for "life" have a numeric value of 18 (Hebrew letters are associated with a number, kind of like Roman numerals). So it's traditional to give gifts of $18 or $36 (a "double life," so to speak) to commemorate rites of passage.
