Amazon announced a new method of sending gift cards to friends on Facebook. Amazon.com (www.amazon.com/giftcards-facebook) customers can now connect to their Facebook account and send gifts to their Facebook friends. Amazon customers can create customized gift cards for their friends and these gift cards will be delivered on the recipient’s Facebook Wall.
After connecting to his or her Facebook account on Amazon.com, the sender can choose a gift card design, specify an amount up to $5,000 and provide an optional gift card message. The sender can also schedule the date for the gift card to appear on the recipient’s Facebook Wall up to a year in advance.
The gift card will be delivered via a post on your friend’s Facebook Wall. Only the recipient can see the amount and claim code. As the sender, you can choose whether everyone can see the gift card message, or only the recipient.
In addition, Amazon is now offering a "Give 5, Get $5" promotion for a limited time. Starting today, the first 10,000 customers who give an MP3-themed Amazon.com Gift Card to five different Facebook friends will get a $5 credit good for music downloads at Amazon MP3. Amazon MP3 has a library of more than 13 million songs and all music downloads sold at Amazon MP3 are DRM-free, which means they work on virtually any MP3 player or phone.
