Want to really show your Facebook Friends you are thinking of them? Send them an Amazon Gift Card. With a new feature released today, Amazon.com makes it easy for you to send a gift card to your Facebook friends.
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) launched a new way to show your friends you are thinking of them, with a gift card system that integrates your Amazon.com with your Facebook account. Facebook users can log in to their Facebook account through Amazon.com and easily send a personalized gift card (loaded with up to $5,000) to a Facebook friend. The gift card is delivered to the recipient through their Facebook Wall.
As Amazon.com describes it, the sending and purchase process is a quick and easy – simply log into Facebook, connect with Amazon.com (and sign in with your Amazon.com credentials), design and address your gift card, and click “send”. The sender can choose whether to display the gift card message to others or to keep it private.
To promote the new service, Amazon.com is running a promotion called “Give 5, Get 5” in which the first 10,000 customers get a $5 promotion code good for Amazon MP3 music downloads. To qualify for the promotion, you’ll need to give an MP3-themed Amazon.com Gift Card via Facebook to 5 different Facebook friends during the month of November.
Amazon.com Gift Cards never expire and are redeemable for millions of items storewide.
