How to check Amazon.com gift card expiry date

Postby kb123 » 31 Dec 2018, 16:45

I received Amazon .com gift card(s) as a gift through mail 2 years back. I have not used the gift cards till date. Now I want to sell/exchange for FC at a discounted price. Before doing so I want to know the gift card's expiry date. In Amazon. com website there is no option to know the expiry date/balance before applying the same. Is it possible to know the expiry date/balance before applying into Amazon. com account?

I checked to make sure but according to Amazon the gift cards issued after October 1, 2005 do not expire.

Most of the time, all these gift cards have 1 year validity. When you will receive the gift card, there will be all the details in your mail. Read that properly.. You will know about the expire date. And yes, when that card will be expired, you will receive a notification in your e-mail and registered phone number.

This just my humble opinion. But quite frankly I think gift cards with expiration dates are CHEATS! You've already paid CASH for the CARD. If you had cash it wouldn't have an expiration date. Why does the card have an expiration date? It's just cash in a card form! Anyway ... if I were going to buy a gift card for someone I would make sure I buy a card that does not have an expiration date.

Amazon.in gift cards has the validity of one year from the date of issue. They will also mention the expiry date in the mail. But in Amazon. com gift card, expiry date has not been mentioned in the received mail. I am also unable to use the gift card into my Amazon .in account.

Different card companies use different validity period. The best way is to check the expiry by going to the particular site and check it by providing the card number.

You could always try talking to their live chat. Make sure to say that its because you want to give it as a present to a friend and not that you want to sell it. That way, they'll be certain to help you out

As long as you add the card to your amazon account it never expires not sure about how long the card itself is good far.

I never got any amazon.com gift card , so I can't reply to your query! But from the other gift cards that we receive in India I am sure that the expiry date is boldly mentioned on the card through which one can use the card accordingly!

Yes if there is a expiration date on a card most of them will say on the back of it somewhere.

In India all amazon.in gift card has one year life i.e. they expire after one year from the date of issue.
AMAZON.COM gift card though dont have such problem. Validity of your card should be mentioned in the email you received.

Even if it is added to your account does it still expire in one year in India? I know in USA it don’t expire at all once in your account don’t know about actual card because I never get them.
