What to do with an Amazon Gift Card?
I recently received an Amazon.com gift card as payment on my HubPages account. I tried to spend it on an eBook but as I live in the UK I wasn't allowed to. Has anyone from the UK managed to successfully spend one of these?
What I did was change my address to a USA address and that enabled me to buy ebooks. Actually Amazon told me to do it this way. If you know someone in the USA ask them if you could possibly use their address. I'm Canada.
Hi Sue, why did you ask for the gift card? I always get paid by cheque. its a pain, and we do lose about 8 pounds having to change it in our bank but its much better.
I didn't realise I had Nell. It's the first time I've ever had a payment of any kind from Amazon in the six years I've been writing on HubPages and it was for just over $11. I must have set my preference all those years ago and now I haven't a clue what to do with it. I don't see any point in changing my payment preference to cheque because if my past track record is anything to go by I don't expect another payment for 6 years or more even - I guess they only pay out a minimum of $50 or maybe $100, I don't know.
I'm from Canada as is Just Ask Susan. What I do is make sure the gift card is for Amazon.ca, and then I buy e-books with the gift card.
If I do get an Amazon.com gift card, it does not phase me; living near the US border, I have a post box across the river in the USA to accommodate those firms that refuse to mail to Canada.

Feeling pretty stressed out right now . Was looking at my bank account today and found to my horror that the amazon cheque I paid in about 10 days ago has bounced (been reversed). I called the bank and they said it was a problem at Amazon's end and that the cheque had not been verified. I have...

I have experienced this a few times. While composing a comment on Hubpages, a pop up comes up saying congratulations...you have won... and proceeded to ask a survey and then some free offers and some small purchases or subscriptions. If I abort out of this page, I loose all the text I composed. It...

I live is Spain. I have receive a cheque from Amazon but my bank won't accept it, saying that the cost of returning the cheque to source for approval would cost more than it's worth! Now I have a cheque that is useless. Why does Amazon not use Paypal? How do you guys get to your Amazon earnings?...

Hi, I have just checked Amazon.com for payment details. It seems that you can get paid direct to your bank if you are in USA or get paid by Amazon.com gift certificate. If you want to be paid by cheque, earnings have to be $100. How can I get paid in UK? I can't have the...
