I'm totally satisfied for the fast delivery of the gift voucher. The option where we can schedule the delivery date is good, hence we can easily schedule some important occasions and these vouchers will be sent on time. 5stars for this feature!
3.0 out of 5 starsThe concept is good but implementation is poor

The concept of gift cards is good... But no proper way to track... Where the recipient has got it... Option for the recipient to send a thank you note Hope Amazon team would bring in more perasuve technology into play
To give any gifts to our colleagues and friends on special occasions, we use to visit shopping centers and purchase gift coupons but we soon realized, its not worth because in shopping centers products are generally very expensive and even for 5k to 10k you can't get much stuff and also not your choice product. So our manager suggested amazon gift card and we started using amazon gift card to gift everyone on special occasions, we found out its more worth, as you have very high range of products at reasonable price and also have long expirydate.
4 stars because the expirydate is just an year. It takes couple of hours for the card to be delivered to the email.. Please note that. Sometimes you get it for a special discount. You may buy it then, keep it and buy goods for that later within an year if you are a regular customer...
It is a good option for gifting when one is confused. It would be nice if the purchase shows the expirydate of the coupon. It would be also good if there is a notification email or message whenever the gift card is used.
Amazon e-mail gift card can be sent to any one you want. The gift card will add it's value in to redeemed account, which can be utilized as normal money to purchase items from amazon. The gift card expires within one year from purchase and if you purchase some items less than the value of gift card, remaining balance will be kept in account. The card can be used to purchase any products except some selected gift cards and promotional products. Gift cards can be made with custom amount for example. Rs.1099 or Rs.6999.
Some useful tips I saw with e-mail gift card are:
Extending expirydate: Amazon extends the expirydate of a gift card, if you purchased item was refunded through gift cards. So make your purchases through gift cards without worrying about expirydate of balance. Getting your hands on the products on flash sale: Always add enough gift card balance to complete purchases faster than others. Discount on already discounted products: Amazon from time to time offer 5-10% discount on e-gift cards. Purchase a gift card, when such offer exist and add the money to your balance. For Example. If Amazon offers 10% discount for Rs. 1000 gift card. You can buy the same for Rs. 900 and get a balance of Rs. 1000 in to the account. You saved rs.100 right there.
Pros: 1. Saves money and a perfect option for gifting some one. 2. Very fast in delivery, gift card can be redeemed immediately. 3. More than 1 gift card can be purchased. 4. Even if you didn't receive the card right away, the customer care can send it to you fast on reporting. 5. Customization and styles are appreciated. 6. Valid for purchasing most products excluding selected gift cards.
Cons: 1. Valid for 1 year only 2. Gift card balance can't be clubbed to purchase one more gift card in some cases. 3. The discount offers usually applicable once in an account.
