If you’ve been "hodling" your bitcoin for 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 whatever you want, 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*. Currently, Amazon does not accept Bitcoin. However, with Bitpay’s Bitcoin wallet app, you can buy Amazon 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.
The BitPay wallet is compatable with all major crypto wallets including Coinbase, Exodus, and many more. Also, Bitcoin isn’t the only cryptocurrency you can turn into an Amazon gift card — Bitpay accepts Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Litecoin (LTC), and five USD-pegged stablecoins: Gemini dollar (GUSD), USD Coin (USDC), Pax Dollar (USDP), Maker DAO (DAI) and Binance USD (BUSD).
Here’s how to spend crypto on Amazon by converting your Bitcoin, DOGE, Litecoin or other cryptocurrency into an Amazon gift card.
Open your BitPay wallet app. If you don’t have the wallet, download for iOS or Android here.
Tap the card icon in the bottom menu bar.
Scroll down to "Buy Gift Cards" and tap "Get Started".
Enter the amount of cash you’d like to add to an Amazon gift card and tap "Continue".
Choose the wallet and cryptocurrency you’d like to use to pay for the Amazon gift card.
Slide to confirm the transaction. You’ll be prompted to enter your BitCoin password to complete the process.
Your virtual Amazon Gift Card and claim code will appear on the screen. Use this code at Amazon checkout to pay for whatever you want!
Congratulations, you’ve just used cryptocurrency to buy on Amazon. Time for you to get shopping. Within the BitPay app, you can also buy giftcards for all of your other favorite merchants like Best Buy, Home Depot, Door Dash, Playstation, StubHub, EA Games, Delta Airlines, and many more.
If you are using the Amazon 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.
Convert Bitcoin to cash, then spend on Amazon whenever you want
