Amazon Gift Cards - Where To Buy

Updated on November 13, 2016

Do you need a last minute gift? Maybe you forgot to pick something up for that birthday party or anniversary party you're about to go to or maybe you were invited to a holiday celebration at the last minute. Not to fear, if you don't have time to shop or you don't know the person well enough to feel confident selecting the perfect gift, Amazon gift cards will solve that last minute gift crisis.

Most people probably know already that you can have Amazon gift certificates emailed to someone, but what you might not realize is that you don't have to email someone their gift. You can print out any of the Amazon gift cards that you buy and then simply present the gift certificate tucked into a card. Alternatively, you can also stop by your local drugstore or supermarket and pick up an Amazon gift cards in a variety of denominations.

I've outlined your online and offline options below, "Where to Buy" list of stores that sell Amazon gift cards all over the United States.

Print a Personalized Gift Card

Amazon has it set up so you can print out a personalized gift card at home. You just select whatever type of design you want, type in your recipient's name, your name and the message you would like to include and then decide on a dollar amount. You can send an Amazon gift card in any dollar amount between $5 and $5000 dollars.

If you have some time, at least a week, you can also have Amazon send you gift cards via snail mail. So if you are lucky enough not to have a last minute gift you need to buy, that's always an option too, especially if you are sending a gift to someone you won't be able to see on their special day because you live too far away.

If you have time to make your purchase on the Amazon website, they have a bunch of different gift card options for various denominations, including this cute holiday pop-up.

Where to Buy Amazon Gift Cards Offline

If you prefer to buy your Amazon gift card at a local store so you have a physical gift card to present to your recipient, there are many national and local retailers that carry Amazon gift cards, in values of $15, $25, $50, and $100. Some stores will also carry the 3-packs which usually in denominations between $10-100 or you can buy the 3-packs directly from It's a nice idea to have a few smaller denomination 3-packs around during the holiday season if you end up wanting to reciprocate for unexpected gifts or just meet someone who you would like to surprise with a little holiday cheer!

Hot Tip!

Unlike Visa or Mastercard gift cards, Amazon gift cards have no purchase fees associated with them so they are the perfect card to consider when you just don't know what to get. After all, Amazon sells virtually everything!

The tables below include all of the different stores that sell physical Amazon gift cards. In addition to single gift cards in the denominations listed above, you can also buy a gift card with a variable denomination so you can decide for yourself how much to add to it.

Also, note that while some of the Amazon gift cards may specify "Kindle" or "Toys", the cards can actually be used for any purchase on the website and are not limited to the item category listed on the card.

And finally, you can also get Amazon gift card codes from Western Union offices and Coinstar Machines. These won't be the plastic gift cards though. I believe the Coinstar machine just gives you a slip of paper with the code on it, and at Western Union you are also just buying the code.

      Walmart sells much of the same stuff that Amazon sells so I doubt they would promote a direct competitor by selling their giftcards.
