No portion of your Amazon.com Balance may be transferred to another Amazon.com account. Neither your Amazon.com Balance nor your Gift Cards may be applied to the purchase of goods or services at any Amazon-affiliated property outside of the United States.
This is Forum is about as much use as a Chocolate Fireplace, unless you fit exactly within the parameters of what is on line.
I have been given a $100 gift card as a thank you by friends in the US. If i try to buy anything it must go through the US, so it costs more to post than to buy.
How can this balance be transferred?
Adding to the other replies. You could try contacting CS, using the link in Bob's post, to plead your case as to why the gift card should be cancelled or returned to the sender (although that may not be feasible once redeemed). If CS is able to accommodate, the sender would need to re-purchase on the site (UK?) where you intend to shop.
@Unsure: Your post does seem to be a little harsh :(
I think you would need to contact HMG and the US Federal Reserve and ask about the current money laundering obligations that most companies and certainly all international companies have to employ to ensure they are within the laws of the many countries within which they operate.
In terms of your specific issue (one I have also encountered) I found it very simple to surmount - Use the gift tokens on US gifts for my US friends. Seems simple enough, but perhaps I'm missing your point. If so I do offer my sincere apologies. Regards, CW
