Which is kind of odd, since they have been one of the most sought after sites to spend bitcoin on since bitcoin began.
In fact, SpendBitcoins began as a way to buy Amazon gift cards with bitcoin, as a sort of workaround. We no longer offer this service directly (as we now focus our efforts on promoting the over 100,000 merchants that now accept bitcoin).
Buying an Amazon gift card through gyft is a very simple process. In fact, spending bitcoin on Amazon takes almost no extra time when using gyft as a go-between.
Here are the three easy steps:
1. Fill up your Amazon shopping cart. Round up the order total to account for tax and shipping. Start your search here to open Amazon in a new window.
2. Click here to open gyft in a new window. Buy a gift code for the amount you rounded to in step 1. Any extra will remain in your Amazon account for next time. Choose bitcoin as your payment method.
3. Back at Amazon, checkout and enter your gift code as your payment method.
Easy! You’ve spent bitcoin on Amazon!
This is also an easy way to convert your bitcoin to your local currency when you feel it is at a high. Simplyl buy Amazon gift cards with bitcoin and apply them to your Amazon account. Then shop at http://spendbitcoins.com/products when you have something you want to buy.
