Amazon gift cards

Canada

I've been using this sites where you get "bucks" which you redeem for prizes. I was thinking about getting the amazon gift card, but I'm a little new to Amazon and need some answers to questions because the wording on the website is a little unclear or doesn't answer my question. Can you use more than one gift card for a purchase? Whats the difference between an e-gift card and an e-gift certificate? What products and from where can I use the money from my gift card (the limitations section on amazon has kind of gotten me confused) thank you anyone who took the time to respond.

I can't answer all your questions, but I thought I would let you know that I've "banked" my Amazon gift cards and used them later when I wanted to order. I believe that Amazon won't let you use the gift cards for outside vendors, but I've had no problems using my banked cards for things they sell. You can bank your cards by logging in to your account and adding it. It's been a while, so, I don't remember exact details, but it was easy. Hope this helps a little.

So does that mean that I can buy anything on their website, or just stuff on their website they are directly selling? I've never used amazon before, because i spend most of my paypal money on items that don't require shipping, like counterstrike.

Once, I ordered something from another vendor through Amazon and the system wouldn't use my gift card balance. Then there has been other times that it did. Maybe it was a glitch, maybe it was the item itself being from another country. Or maybe the vendor's agreement with Amazon. I canceled the order at that point and used the balance for something else.

I just keep all my gift cards in my account with amazon, and then when my balance gets high enough for me to get something that i want i use them all at once....and i have never had a problem using them for anything that i have wanted. but i am here in the US, and do not know if it is different in Canada.
