Most of us don’t have the extra money to spend on 3lb of Lucky Charms marshmallows, a Das Mechanical Keyboard, or a full-size replica of Aragorn’s sword from The Lord of the Rings. However, if you’ve been "hodling" onto your bitcoin for just the past year, you have already seen your investment quadruple in value. That means that while you may not have the cash to throw at those awesome items, you certainly have the bitcoin.
That’s why BitPay is happy to provide bitcoiners the opportunity to turn their bitcoin into Amazon.com Gift Cards*. With our BitPay bitcoin wallet app, you can buy Amazon.com Gift Cards using your bitcoin. These Amazon.com Gift Cards can range from $1.00 to $1,000.00 and can be specified down to the penny.
To use this feature:
- Open your BitPay wallet.
- Scroll to the bottom and click Amazon.com Gift Card under Services.
- Select Buy Amazon.com Gift Cards.
- Enter the dollar amount.
- Click the arrow on the right-hand side and confirm your purchase.
If you are using the Amazon.com Gift Card for an immediate purchase, we recommend getting to the checkout page and purchasing an Amazon.com Gift Card amount that includes the sales tax and shipping costs for your Amazon purchase.
After that, you can immediately redeem the Amazon.com Gift Card for your purchase and refresh the checkout screen. Your total will be shown as $0.00, and you can submit your order.
That's it. That's how you take your bitcoin and turn it into Amazon.com Gift Cards. Time for you to get shopping. Just try not to eat that whole bag of marshmallows in one sitting.
