How to Cancel a Gift Card Order on Amazon Easily
With online shopping available for all manner of purchases these days, it can be difficult to know what kind of gift to buy someone.

However, situations may arise where you find yourself second-guessing your gift card purchase after the fact and you may be left wondering if you will be able to cancel your Amazon gift card.
Perhaps you thought of a different gift idea or you bought the gift card by mistake. Maybe you paid for the incorrect gift card amount. Whatever your reasons, if you bought an Amazon gift card that you now wish to cancel, you may be curious if you can get a refund for it. This DoNotPay guide will help you understand Amazon's gift card policy, plus offer an alternative to trying to on your own.
About Amazon Gift Card Cancellation Policies
The policy clearly states that most gift card orders cannot be refunded. This is to help protect both customers and themselves from fraudulent gift card returns. In fact, most online retailers have a policy in place that prevents customers from getting refunded for gift card purchases.
Unfortunately, lost or unwanted gift cards are not eligible for any kind of refund or replacement. However, there are a few instances where you may be able to get a refund on an Amazon gift card. They include:
- If a physical gift card was ordered and shipped to a recipient besides yourself, you may be able to cancel that order and receive a refund if it was not yet shipped.
- If your reason for needing a refund on a purchased gift card is protected by the law
The latter reason may be left up to the discretion of the Amazon customer service agent you speak to regarding canceling your gift card, but having DoNotPay on your side can help you build a stronger case.
Can I Cancel an Amazon Gift Card Order on My Own?
If you believe your is eligible for cancellation and a refund, you will probably need to reach out to Amazon customer service for more information. However, if you purchased a gift card that has not yet been delivered to the recipient and you need to cancel and receive a refund, there are multiple ways to do so:
|Online||Log into your account either from the desktop website or mobile app. Go to Orders, then find your recent gift card order. If your order has yet to be delivered, you will still be given an option to cancel it.|
|Chat||From the Amazon website, you can chat directly with a customer service agent regarding canceling your gift card order.|
