How to redeem an Amazon gift card on Amazon's website and mobile app


Today you can buy just about anything on Amazon, from a bed frame to a wedding band, so an Amazon gift card makes a great gift for anyone — especially for those friends who are serial gift returners.

If you’ve been recently gifted an Amazon gift card (lucky you!), there are two easy ways you can redeem it. You can transfer your balance to your Amazon account and save it for a future purchase, a great idea if you don’t want to run the risk of losing the physical card, or wait until you’ve found what you want to buy and enter your gift card information as a payment method.

This guide will cover both ways of redeeming your gift card at Amazon’s website and on the Amazon app. Whichever method you use, you’ll need the claim code. This can be found on the back of the gift card under a protective coating or label. If you’ve got a digital gift card, and not a physical one, you’ll find your claim code in the email you received. Happy shopping!
