    Just wondering. I think I'm close to hitting $10 in Amazon (keeping my fingers crossed on this one). But since I'm not in the U. S., I chose to get an Amazon gift certificate instead (the check takes too long due to the high threshold). So, is the gift certificate transferable? I couldn't find the answer in Amazon's Help section. If you know the answer or know where I can get it from, please refer me to the site.

    Thank you and Happy New Year!

    I don't know about it.  I would like to know the answer too.  I also get gift certificates BUT they can only be spend in I cannot use them in which makes the shipping prices from America to France very expensive.

    I would like to hear how other foreign affiliates deal with it.

    The gift certificate is a code that gets put in when a person makes a purchase online. So yes, it is transferable.

      So I can give it away as a gift voucher to any one.  Is that right?

      So far I have been using it to buy goodies for my grandma in USA and a couple of times she has send me my purchases with friends who were coming here.

        I've done it before. Emailed the "claim code" to a friend. It looked something like this: U3ZY-ULZBH2-NSK8

      Thanks darkside.

      I'm actually thinking of either (1) giving it to my uncle who lives in the US or (2) selling it to someone who can deposit the amount in my paypal. I know the second one sounds so well 'commercialized' but I really hope it can be done so that I can monetize my gift certificate.
