Customer Question

I am trying to purchase a gift certificate that I can use to buy a book for my Kindle Fire but have been disconnected twice when calling the #s listed. Can u help me
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: I have a Kindle Fire listed under either my name our my husband's name. We are on vacation and I do not know how to get the make or model. Our account may be listed under Edwin Sokol (who has a Kindle) or my name Beverly K. Sokol and own the Kindle Fire.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I am trying to purchase a gift card to make Kindle purchases. The reason for purchasing a gift card is that my husband has short term memory issues and was ordering books without realizing he ordered hem. Fortunately, Amazon gave us credit for the books that he ordered and I removed the charge card number from your file. It was suggested by the Kindle rep that I purchase a gift card.
JA: Anything else you want the eReader expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Have I adequately described the problem so that you understand my situation

1) Go to Your Account > Shopping List and select Amazon Gift Cards from the links just below the department links at the top of the page. This will take you to a screen where you can purchase and eGift card and email it to your husband.near

2) Select the Gift Cards & Registry department from the department links at the top of the page and then select the Print Gift Cards At Home box.
