You can cancel before it gets redeemed otherwise this task cannot be reversed.

Note: The settings or the direction may be slightly different as per the country you are living in. Otherwise, the process is almost the same and you can use this in any country you’re in.

Choosing the target country on Amazon App

If you want to check the gift card that belongs to other countries then you have to select the Amazon website of that country.

Further, the login information will be the same but the website combination will be different (like amazon.com, amazon.ae, amazon.ca, etc).

Note that if you confirm that claim code, the gift card will be credited to your account.

Can you Transfer the Gift Card Balance to Friend’s Account?

Amazon does not provide such a feature to transfer your gift card balance to other Amazon users.

Your gift card can only be redeemed to purchase a new book or to buy something from Amazon websites. If you want to send a gift card to your friend then you have the choice to send it online through Amazon eGift card.

The process to send the gift card to your friend’s email ID is by purchasing a new one with your prepaid card.

3. Check if the Amazon gift card has been Redeemed

If you have an old gift card and you are not sure about the value it worth then you can add this gift card to your Amazon account if the validity of this gift card not much time left or tomorrow, shoot a check if the gift card has been redeemed on Amazon.

It is better to redeem such a gift card that is about to expire on the next day rather than checking the balance and kept in your pocket again.

To buy a new gift card, you have to use a prepaid debit or credit card. You cannot use your gift card balance to shop for a gift card from Amazon.

If the expiry of your gift card is soon then just open Amazon.com and add the gift card to your gift card balance. Once you added it to the balance, you will see the expiry date of that amount, so better to use it before that time period.

Is it possible to use Amazon.com G.C. on Amazon.ca website?

If you are purchasing a gift card on amazon.com for gifting someone, the same you and your friends have to use to purchase any goods using that gift card amount.

If you are sending an eGift card to someone who is using amazon.ca or other Amazon websites from different countries then the gift card cannot be used to purchase from those websites.

Amazon US and Amazon Canada are operated separately that is why the gift card management and other account credits are totally different.

If you can’t use the gift card that does not mean that you cannot really add it to your account.

While you are on amazon.ca, you can still open amazon.com from your browser and log in with the same login credentials.

Now you have to follow the same method to add a gift card to your gift card balance for gifting that amount to someone else who is living in that country.

That saves your card from expiry or non-use.

Fixing the Claim code issue for gift cards:

If your GC is not working then maybe it is already used or the claim code you are entering is incorrect.

Did you damage the claim code while scratching it to unlock the GC claim code?

Then you have to contact Amazon with your 16 digit gift card serial number that is pasted in the front of your physical gift card.

Soon an Amazon representative will contact you for further information if needed and will sort out your problem quickly.

You will get help from Amazon only, otherwise, there is no chance that your gift card can be restored.

The Bottom Lines:
