How to Redeem Amazon Gift Cards

One thing I love about Amazon is that they don't require you to provide a credit card in order to make a purchase. If you have enough Amazon gift cards, you don't need a credit card. This is great for kids and people who don't have credit cards! It is very easy to make a purchase online. Some of you guys might not know how to redeem an Amazon gift card. If you are one of them, please read this tutorial.

There are 2 ways of redeeming your Amazon gift cards. You can redeem them at the time of purchase, or add it to your account balance for later use. I will start off showing you to redeem them at the time of purchase first. Most of you probably already know this method, but still... Oh yeah, you can always click on screenshots to see the full size. :)

So after you have added all the items you want to your cart, go to your cart and click "Proceed to Check Out". You might have to login again.

After that, you will need to choose which address to ship to and stuff. After you do, it will lead you to the payment page and you will see a box where you can redeem your gift cards.

After that, if you have enough, you can proceed to check out with no credit cards, if you don't, you will need to provide a credit card. Proceed through the check out process until your order has been placed. Any unused balance will be recorded to your account and you can use it next time you make a purchase.

Don't know what to get your friend or loved one? Gift cards work great on any occasion!

Amazon allows you to add Amazon gift cards to your account for later purchases. Your balance will never expire. If you are using those free stuff websites, I recommend you credit your Amazon with the gift cards as soon as you get them, just in case you get banned from them. Here is how you add them to your account for later use. 

Once you sign in, go to the top right hand corner and click "My Account".

It might ask you for your password again for security purposes.

After you are in "My Account", locate the "Payment" section and click either  "View Gift Card Balance" or "Apply a Gift Card to Your Account".

After you are on that page, you should see a box that allows you to type your Amazon gift card code in.

You should get a message of success and see your balance go up. 

There you go! The balance never expire and you will have an option to use it the next time you check out! I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial. Please share with your friends! Please comment too!
