Amazon Gift Cards: Buying Presents Online

Updated on March 4, 2013 Gift Cards are Fun and Easy to Give

I'll just say it now and hope my family reads this. If anyone (hint hint) wants to me buy me something special for Christmas this year they can go to and buy me a gift card online. Amazon has got me absolutely hooked - receiving gifts in the mail is like a getting a Christmas present every-time!

When I was a little girl we had what was called the "dream book" in our house - it was a Wards catalog - and I remember countless days and nights looking over the pages, ohhing and ahhing over the variety of things for sale in the catalog. Now with Amazon online, I've got my new "dream web pages", where I can now oooh and ahhh over just about everything under the sun! Amazon. com has everything from seeds for my garden, toys for my grandson to shoes for the kids. Shopping has never been so much fun! gift cards - an easy way to shop and buy gift certificates online gift cards - an easy way to shop and buy gift certificates online | Source

Why buy Amazon gift cards as presents?

If you are struggling on what to buy for that difficult family member or friend, I would absolutely suggest an gift card. The two main reasons I would suggest this are:

1) Amazon has something for everyone. Your gift card recipient will be able to find something they need or want on Amazon (Amazon has way more than just books!) There is just about no way that someone can not find something that they need or want on

2) Amazon is easy to order from, the shipping is fast and the customer service is great.

I actually started using Amazon about a year ago when I started using Amazon gift cards that were given to me. At first I was a little anxious about ordering online but after a few times of ordering with great success - and receiving what was expected - I decided that this is the new way of shopping for me. I don't like shopping in malls so giving and buying gift cards online will be the way I do alot of my shopping this year - especially during the Christmas holiday season.

Buy Gift Cards Online and Make Your Shopping Easy

Purchasing gift cards from is very easy. Delivery is instant and you can print your own card out, even having it personalized for that special someone. And a really cool way to give your Amazon gift card is to have it posted to your recipients Facebook page via Amazon . Now how cool is that?? The designs for the cards are also super cute. You can buy Amazon gift cards for birthdays, holidays, just because or any other reason you might want a card instead of cash (they are easy to redeem, I just redeem mine when I use the check-out) You can even buy Amazon gift cards online in bulk if you want to give them out to employees or to all of your family. Gift cards are also available for specific companies like I-Tunes, Home Depot, popular restaurants and even for theaters (for movie tickets)

In the Internet age, some of us forget about the shopping aspect of buying online. While some of us use the Internet to do our banking online to make life easier, we sometimes forget that we can also use the Internet to do our shopping too. Buying gift cards online with is just one more way to simplify your life. I know I enjoy receiving gift cards and I will also enjoy being able to buy gift cards online this year (And don't forget, if I'm on your shopping list I've already told you what I would like this year - hint hint to any of my family that is reading this!)

    This was the first year I ever used Amazon to purchase gifts. I also purchased a few Amazon gift cards too. Shopping online shaved me so much time.

    and they are pretty good about shipping it early. Each time for me it gets there ahead of time, no matter what place I am at.
