    The other day a guy offered me an exchange. He was going to tell me how to obtain amazon gift cards, and I was going tot ell him how to build a micro niche site. I was all for it, but he disappeared, and I never learned how he gets amazon gift cards.

    I also see people selling $10, $20, $50, and $100 Amazon gift cards for less than the cards value on forums. You can buy a $100 card for $65 or even $50, sometimes.

    When you buy one, they just e-mail you the code.

    Anyone have any idea how these people are getting their hands on the codes? Its obvious there has to be some kind of stealing going on, but how?

    I hear people are buying gift cards with stolen credit cards and reselling it on ebay. I would stay away from that method.

    I get Amazon gift cards through swagbucks referrals. I don't remember the conversion rate for turning swagbucks into Amazon gift cards vs. turning them into Paypal giftcards but I do know Amazon is a better deal so that is a legit way of getting Amazon gift cards for less than their real value.

    No one would be stupid enough to commit fraud on eBay with a stolen credit card for $100 considering eBay own PayPal... It's just not worth the hassle of trying to hide yourself and transferring the money.

    Honestly the reason why so many people sell Amazon gift cards on eBay is because a lot of people have Amazon USA affiliate accounts because there traffic is mainly from the USA and if you're from another country and your payment method is through gift cards then that's where they sell them. SIMPLE :)

    There are probably promotional cards aswell being given out so this could also be why there is such a large supply of gift cards

    Unfortunately this will blow up my current project under wraps, but I was in progress of coding a a site that bought gift cards at far under market value and reselling for 3/4 of market value. There are sites like it but mine was going to be large as hell- spanning to all giftcards.

    There is no shipping. It's just a code that Amazon emails to you.

    You use the gift card to buy something on Amazon. So if you're paying $16 for a $15 gift card you're still saving money if you're buying something that costs $15+has $10 shipping as when you use a giftcard you get free shipping. Understand now?

    I know what your're talking about but how they do it I don't know, they seem to be generated somehow online but then again it could be stolen credit cards. However the codes have to usually be used up in 48 hours or less so that's what makes me think it's somehow generated. People can rack up a good buy with these, i've seen 1k card codes sold for less than half. Shady on both parts whether you're using the codes or selling the codes so if you go any deeper into this be careful, I'd advise just forget the idea.

    All this shady stuff across the internet is now getting ppl good amounts of jail time so be careful.
