  1. $50 is not enough to say “Thanks” or “Happy Birthday” according to Amazon

    Want to send someone an Amazon Gift Card to say “Thanks” to “Congrats”? Well, you’d better be ready to pay a little extra.

    The Gift Cards - In a Gift Box - Free One-Day Shipping page “recommends” a $200 “Happy Birthday” card when you first load the page, but it will let you select different designs (Congrats, Happy Reading, Amazon Logo, Happy Birthday, Snow Globe, and Thank You) and different denominations ($50, $75, $100, $150, $200, $250, $350, $500).

    However, if you try to select $50 and either the “Congrats” design or the “Happy Birthday” design, Amazon will tell you that it is “Not available in selected Denomination.” You’ll have to bump the selected price up to $75 in order to use those two designs.

    I guess Amazon doesn’t have a lot of nieces and nephews.
