It's worth adding that while Amazon say you can have a refund via a gift card, your statutory rights in this instance grant you the right to a proper refund, with the money you spent on these items restored to your credit or debit card.

If anyone's affected, you are entirely better off demanding a monetary refund rather than just a gift card to the value of. Take the cash, spend it anywhere, and without any of Amazon's T&Cs or valid-until dates attached.
Gift card, now that is cheeky but its Amazon at the end of the day.
