Amazon Appstore Gift Cards

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

It did not take Amazon long to set up a page promoting gift cards for their new Amazon Appstore. Although its unlikely that there will ever be as many Amazon Appstore gift cards floating around as there are itunes gift cards no doubt it will be a popular gift card. Amazon makes it incredibly easy to buy Amazon Appstore gift cards, you can choose to send an Amazon Appstore gift card by e-mail, via Facebook, or you cna just print it. Currently the Amazon Appstore gift cards are only available in the United States and you still need to have an active Amazon account.  The cards can be redeemed in the Appstore, on Amazon.com or on Amazon’s Endless.com.

The Amazon Appstore is still in its infancy, but thanks to the popularity of Amazon.com the layout and feel of the Appstore will be very familiar to anyone who has shopped on Amazon. One of the fun features that makes it stand out from the itunes store is the Free App of the Day. The promotion provides a free app that would usually be a paid app everyday. Its very similar to a daily deal site like Groupon or Wagjag but for Android Apps. Another great feature is the Appstore Test Drive, some of the Appstores apps can be tried out before you are buying them from your PC. Its handy because you can quickly and efficiently browse apps on a large screen and decide if you want to purchase it before you download it to your Android phone.

If you are planning on trying out Amazons Appstore or already an active customer be sure to check out Giftah.com’s gift card listings to see if there are any discount Amazon gift cards available. With a discount Amazon gift card you can save money on anything in the Appstore or from any other Amazon site. Giftah.com will help you put more money back in your pocket.

Give An Amazon Gift Card On Facebook

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

You can now give a Amazon gift card to your friends on Facebook, you can even post it right on their wall for everyone to see. Amazon gift cards given on Facebook can have any denomination from $5 to $5,000. One of the best features of Amazon’s Facebook card is the ability to order cards up to one year in advance, so if there is someones birthday or an anniversary you also forget to give a gift on you can set up an automatic delivery of an Amazon gift card. Of course if you buy gifts in advance you should be conscious that social network’s popularity could wane, imagine if you set up a Amazon gift card for automatic delivery on MySpace a year ago? Likely the user you sent the gift card to would no longer be registered on the site. While Facebook is unlikely to face a rapid decline in popularity similar to MySpace its important to keep this in mind, no website lasts forever and people  could leave the social network at any time.

To promote the new Amazon gift cards on Facebook the first 10,000 users who send a Amzone gift card to $5 Facebook friends will receive a $5 credit towards MP3 downloads in the Amazon music store.
