Escrow is an absolute MUST when buying something with your hard-earned btc :-))

That's definitely true if your gift card vendor is ready to wait ...

The only thing  that you need to buy an Amazon and not be Scammed
is do not pay the cost of the gift card before the shipping of your product .

that s why we use escrow  Roll Eyes

hi
let be honest,legit amazon gift card with this rate(that can find it at bitcointalk) is very rare.
maybe you don't like to do illegal work but almost i'm sure you will do, and this work have many serious consequences. for example my friend arrested due selling illegal xbox gift code in USA.
but sometimes you will find good trades, i sold 2 norton IS 6 moth for 5$ amazon GC and tried to sell it at boitcoin talk but nobody paid for it even 3.5 or 4$ and i sold it at kinguin for 5.5$ because i trust my customer.
and i say every time: you can find free cheese only in mousetrap:)
good lock

My personal experience is that after several trials, I gave up and now I only buy it via bitpanda - it's 100% price, but to get this -15%~20% discount I'm spending too much time on it, for my personal use I think it's not worth the trouble.

I think you'll get no offers with that condition (as my paxful and localbitcoins experience tells me and i traded pretty much there :-))

I would say that 90% offers with more than 10% discount are illegit.


My personal experience is that after several trials, I gave up and now I only buy it via bitpanda - it's 100% price, but to get this -15%~20% discount I'm spending too much time on it, for my personal use I think it's not worth the trouble.

Well, I think now it's time again to bump up this thread and add some useful knowledge:

(1) Beware of vendors with "locked" threads where nobody else can comment except them. Those guys are very probably scammers because honest vendors don't fear the customers feedback, good or bad

(2) Beware of vendors with threads where all messages are from newbies successfully buying and telling each other how great this vendor is.

(3) As a rule (with possible exceptions, of course) DO NOT CONSIDER trading with vendors with the red trust of -3 or lower. Don't deal 100% at all if the red trust is -4 or even lower. Review the trust level carefully.

(4) ALWAYS REMEMBER:

- 100% legit Amazon Gift cards (physical ones, not e-codes, with cash receipt) can easily be sold at Paxful or LBC for 83-85%. So all offers starting from 80% and below are very very possible scams (if not 100%) because "why didn't the vendor sell them for 85% at Paxful to get much more?"

- Use alternative methods of replenishing your Amazon balance (Gift of Prime , Gift of Kindle Unlimited)

- Buy from reputable vendors (and remember your rates will be within 85-95% range in this case)

- Do your homework and know how to tell a good cash receipt from a fake one.

- Scammers normally will try to rush you that you don't have time to review the offer carefully. Be calm.

- Reread this thread and ask if in doubt

Hi, guys!

I have been buying Amazon gift cards for bitcoins for some time already and have seen ... well ... different ways used to scam some simple-minded bitcoin buyers (including me initially).

Below are simple guidelines that will decrease your probability of being scammed when buying an Amazon Gift Card:

- Use an Escrow (this is obvious and comes first)

- Ask  for the photo of both sides of the card where the FULL card is visible (no hidden edges etc)  and the photo has a good resolution.

- Ask for a photo of the cash receipt given to the card seller when the card was bought in a shop

- Check that the cash receipt looks ... well ... like a normal cash receipt.

- Check that the *Card Number* from the card matches to the Card Number on the cash receipt.
 The *Card Number* is NOT the *Card Code*. The *Card Code* is the code that you redeem at Amazon and it looks like "AQZZ-TRDETY-CY9QF". The *Card Number* looks like a normal credit card number and consists of a long string of digits. Normally, the last 4 digits or the full *Card Number* are printed on the cash receipt. When you buy an Amazon gift card, the *Card Number* is visible (it's also printed on the package) and the *Card Code* is not visible (you need to scrape off the plastic film covering it to see the actual *Card Code*).

- Ask the card seller to write something in pen on the cash receipt (something like "Sold to <> at bitcointalk.org. No refund") and make a photo where BOTH the card and cash receipt are visible. This point helps to ensure that the seller has  both the cash receipt and card physically.

- Check on the cash receipt that the Amazon card has been bought with CASH (not with a Credit Card). It shall be clearly written on the receipt. If you see that the card was bought with a credit card, avoid it. It's a significant probability that the credit card used for that was stolen.


Those guidelines are simple, but they definitely will make your life happier enjoying your Amazon Gift Card in full.

I think the fellow forum members will definitely add their insights to this message.

The 6th bullet point is EXTREMELY important. People often just rip images off of google and try to use it as proof that they actually have cards. Buyers can do multiple things in this situation. Google reverse search is amazing, and it should be used by anyone looking to buy an Amazon gift card. If you find matches of the card somewhere online, just don't buy it from the person trying to sell to you. They're trying to scam you. Furthermore, you can always ask the seller to send 2 more pictures with a unique form to it (take a picture with a microwave in the background, with your ring finger in it as well, etc.). This insures that the person is not just ripping an image off of google.
