Hi everyone,

I'm just looking for some advice on the best place to buy amazon gift vouchers for less than face value?

Many thanks

My employee discount portal offers a whopping 2% discount, that too as a special offer only.
Doubt if you can.

In general shop vouchers are sold at a discount because people cant use them to buy what they want - shops with limited range - or because people can get a higher value of vouchers thean cash when selling something - like CEX.

Amazon you can buy almost anything and there aren't any arbitrage opportunities.
In that case does anyone have any advice on bringing the cost down on something expensive from amazon... around the £700 mark? I had thought perhaps I could save £50 using vouchers or something

That’s probably the way to go if you’re a prime member?
You can buy face value vouchers in Morrison's and combine with More card points for £5 Morrisons vouchers toward shopping/more Amazon vouchers. Unsure how much your purchase would be worth in their vouchers though.

Claim it arrived with missing parts, get replacement, sell duplicate.


Oh, did you mean legal? I'm not sure sorry.

Yeah I’m sure it was higher! But that’s what it said on my account, just 1%.

Was hoping that would be a benefit of Prime going forward. I wouldn't be surprised if it disappears entirely at some point soon.
Do u have a Visa debut card? Top up £50 get £5
I gave up. I tried topping up £780 but it refused... then I tried 3 small top ups to the same value and they went into a manual check with Amazon. In the end I placed my order directly and just paid.
If you have offers on Amex, like the Tesco one (link), use this to puchase the Amazon giftcard instore.

If you're looking to buy stuff sold and dispatched by Amazon do the usual offers for the £5 vouchers when they come up:

Hub delivery one now expired, often one for the music app etc.

Sometimes you would get offers on American express card where American express would give a certain percentage cashback on payments at different retailers.

Last year they had a 10% cashback on Morrisons spend. It is possible to purchase Amazon gift cards at Morrisons so in effect you're getting 10% off Amazon credit. You would also get some Morrisons More loyalty points too.

However after the lockdown I haven't checked for any further Morrisons deals. Usually I just stock up on several hundred pounds Amazon credit whenever they have such deals.
