The money is sent into your wallet, which you may access anytime when the customer purchases your voucher code, uses it, and reviews the offer. Of course, these websites could deduct a small charge from your transactions.

12. Trade on eBay

eBay is a retail website where you can sell anything you can think of from Disney VHS tapes, and board games to Amazon gift cards.

Yet, trading on eBay is far safer and more secure than on other buy-and-sell websites like Facebook Marketplace. Also, because of eBay’s extensive customer base, it is simple to locate a buyer.

Selling on eBay is straightforward. Just post your items and provide a bid amount, and you’re done. You have two choices if you want to redeem your gift cards to Amazon on eBay:

Selling directly and at a discount your Amazon Gift Card on eBay

You may post your gift cards to Amazon on eBay and sell them there for money by marking them down by 5–10% from their face value. If a customer purchases a physical gift card, you may mail it to them or give them the gift certificate code.

Advertise a hot item on eBay for the same amount as your Amazon Gift Card.

Here, you use your gift card to purchase an item from Amazon and then sell it for cash on eBay. You may post your stuff on eBay when you buy it to lower the risk further. Also, you may have it sent straight from Amazon to your eBay buyer when someone purchases it from you. By doing this, you can increase your earnings without fearing any negative outcomes.

13. Buy Other Gift Cards on Amazon

Things To Know Before Using Amazon Gift Cards Besides Amazon

Accepted Payment Methods 

Before purchasing with your Amazon gift card, make sure that the website or store accepts Amazon gift cards as payment. While many Amazon-owned companies accept Amazon gift cards, other businesses may not.

Gift Card Balance 

Check the balance on your Amazon gift card before making a purchase. Some websites or stores may not allow you to use partial payments, so you will want to ensure you have enough funds on your gift card to cover the entire purchase.

Shipping and Handling 

If you are purchasing from an online retailer, be sure to factor in the cost of shipping and handling. Some retailers may offer free shipping, while others may charge a fee. Make sure to read the fine print before making your purchase.

Return Policies

Before purchasing, familiarize yourself with the website or store’s return policy. Some retailers may not allow returns or exchanges, while others may require that you pay for return shipping. Make sure you understand the policy before making a purchase.


When making an online purchase, make sure the website is secure. Look for the padlock icon in the URL bar and make sure the website’s URL starts with “https.” This indicates that the website is encrypted and secure.
