So you want to get a gift for someone and encourage them to read. Amazon Kindle gift cards are ideal for this. So where can you actually buy these from? Before I dive into this I just wanted to clarify what the gift card can be used to purchase
What can I buy with an Amazon Kindle Gift Card?
So even though the image will says ‘Amazon Kindle gift card’, you can actually purchase anything on Amazon using it. It’s not limited to only purchasing Kindle devices or books. Although this seems a little counter-intuitive, it has been confirmed on numerous Amazon support forums as it’s a popular question to ask.
So Where Can I Buy Them From?
The most obvious place is from Amazon itself. So there are two types you can purchase. The physical card and the e-card. The physical card, as the name suggests is the one that’s shipped to your loved one whereas the e-card can be sent via email. There are pros and cons to both approach (physical cards can take days to arrive VS e-cards don’t have the same feeling as a gift but are instantaneous) so you’ll need to decide on your preference
The process is fairly straight forward from the Amazon site and allows to add a custom message to the sender as well as customize the card type.

If you want to have the physical gift card but don’t want to wait for Amazon to deliver it from their website, there are a number of stores you can purchase them from. I’m going to focus on countries where I know you can pick these gift cards up.
