This listing has been approved by a moderator.

I have a gift card balance on my account after returning some items. I'm going to purchase them elsewhere so would like to sell my gift card balance.

The way it works is you pick an item from Amazon, pay me % less of the total value and I have it delivered to your door directly (Prime if it's available).

Discount as follows:

8% for up to £500
9% for up to £1000
10% for £1000+

No offers please and ideally as fewer transactions as possible, so lets start with £150 minimum purchase.

This is advertised elsewhere so I will update the balance as necessary.

Remaining balance: £1000

£405 sold to KeirW
£1577 sold to damo_s
£290 sold to Mklad

Price and currency: £various
Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
Payment method: PPG/BT
Location: Harrow
Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere

I reported this this thread to double check with a mod and the response I got was "no need to report". So I assumed it's ok to go ahead.

Ok, thanks. You did the right thing in reporting it although I'm not sure why you got told otherwise as we always authorise these type of listings first. We'll take it as approval given though.

Hi, looking to get a PS Classic as a gift for a friend at the weekend. Would a £50 purchase be ok? If so how much?

Hi, I take it you could purchase a gift cards using your balance. If so I am interested in all remaining balance at 9% discount or £1000 at 8%. Easier than purchasing and posting to my address I would say?

You would not need to post gift cards to me just the codes to make it clear.

Hi, I would have done that if it was possible :). But you can't buy gift cards with a gift card balance so this is the only way I'm afraid.

Happy to do £1000+ @ 9%.

By the way, I send the orders marked as gift so if you were to change your mind, you can return the goods to Amazon and get the order value applied to your own gift card account balance.

I thought you could buy anything using the balance, my bad. I buy loads on Amazon, but nothing so expensive right now. I'm interested but not sure how to get round this.

I'm not sure if they would not still refund to your account though? Also a bit of hassle involved in this.

Another thought:
Would Amazon not issue a code to you and clear the balance for example you could tell them you wanted to re-apply this balance to your friend's (e.g. mine :) ) or your family member's account? Sure it should make no difference to them and perhaps they could then issue you with a code? They have a rule here, but they do work with customers so perhaps worth trying Amazon Chat? They can only say no in the worst case scenario.

I had a chat with Amazon and they are unable to transfer gift card balances or allow it as a payment method for gift card purchases.

Selling this way is my only option, unless I find something to spend it on. :)

It would need to be something relatively small and expensive.
I found a camera for £849, it would be simple enough to return via RMSD.
But their website states: "Note: If the return isn't the result of our error, or if you're returning an item other than shoes, clothing, jewellery or watches that were sold or dispatched by Amazon, return costs will be deducted from your refund."
So it would cost me £11 to return it.

Based on this I could offer to buy £849 of your vouchers (camera cost) at 10% discount. Not trying to haggle, the 2% is really to cover the return postage cost...and a bit of my hassle.
If you are ok with this then please PM me.
Thanks.

I can £849 @ 9% or if £1000+ at 10%. If you let Amazon arrange the collection, it will cost you less than £11. I returned something worth £2500 and they charged me £6.

Collection by Amazon will not be feasible for me as would not want to commit to being at home all day to wait for their courier.

I can do £1000 at 10%, I'll just need to find some stuff for £151.
So I could pay in full, the camera could be ordered and then a day or two after I would let you know the remaining items(s) for the £151.
Does it sound ok?

Actually I've just found a camera for £999, so would be less messing about i.e. one payment, one order, one return. So if you can do £999 at 10% discount then we could have a deal.
Or if you want to go to £1000 plus I can add some batteries :smashin:

Hi, I found another item so I could increase the total to £1577 (Amazon's item cost) minus 10%. However, Amazon have only 1 in stock so it would need to be on condition that it is still available, when we go ahead with this, otherwise I will need to reduce the total back to £1000 and go for the original item.
Thanks

Ive got £750 in my account right now. I’m due another £850 in a few days time but I think I might be spending it.
