Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

How can I remove a gift card from my Amazon purchase?

I received a gift card for Christmas. And I added it to my amazon.co.uk account.

The problem is that I was purchasing a product using my account on behalf of somebody else yesterday – and Amazon automatically applied the £40 gift card – which I wanted to save for something else (and apply to my own credit card purchase)!

So – how does one remove the gift card from the order balance?

Step 1: when you are reviewing your order – look carefully at the “Payment method” as pictured below. You will see the Gift Certificate listed as well as the card you intend to pay with – click on Change

When reviewing your order click on the Change link under Payment method

When reviewing your order click on the Change link under Payment method

Step 2: scroll down the list of cards Amazon has stored and find the title “Your available balance” and untick the “Use your £xxx.xx” option.

Untick the Use your £xxx.xx option

Untick the Use your £xxx.xx option

Proceed with the order and you should now be charged the full cost without the gift certificate applied.

    Hi
    This doesn’t seem to work any more.
