Walgreens is one of the biggest drugstore chains in the United States. They have more than 8,000 stores across the nation that offer many health products and other goods besides medications.
But does Walgreens sell gift cards? And can you buy Amazon gift cards at Walgreens?
You can buy Amazon gift cards at Walgreens in denominations of $10 (sold in packs of three), $25, $50, and $100. Walgreens only sells Amazon gift cards in-store; the lowest amount you can buy is $25. Once you buy Amazon gift cards at Walgreens, you can not return them.
Amazon gift cards bought at Walgreens can be used to buy goods and services from Amazon and its affiliates.
You may be wondering if you can buy Amazon gift cards online at Walgreens or if you have to pay extra fees to buy Amazon gift cards at Walgreens. Read on to find out!
You don’t have to pay fees or incur additional costs when buying Amazon gift cards at Walgreens. You’re only required to pay the exact dollar value of the card.
But if you buy an open-loop Amazon gift card at Walgreens (prepaid gift cards), you’ll have to pay an extra fee. Prepaid cards are only available at some Walgreens locations.
The fees you pay for a prepaid card depend on the card you buy, but typically, they range between $3 and $5 per card.
Walgreens sells four different types, value amounts, or denominations of Amazon gift cards:
- $10 cards (sold as a pack of three)
- $25 cards
- $50 cards
- $100 cards
Amazon offers gift cards of different denominations so everyone can afford them. But are these all the gift card denominations Amazon offers? No, Amazon generally offers gift cards for between $5 and $500.
Walgreens does not sell other denominations of Amazon gift cards apart from $10, $25, $50, and $100. And because Amazon has more options, Walgreens recommends that you buy Amazon gift cards in different amounts straight from Amazon.
You can customize your Amazon gift cards to any amount you choose. However, you cannot buy more than $10,000 in Amazon gift cards in a single day from Amazon or its affiliates.
Unfortunately, Walgreens does not sell any denominations of Amazon gift cards online. The option to have Amazon gift cards delivered or shipped to you is not currently available on the Walgreens website or mobile app. You can only purchase or pick up the gift cards in-store.
While you can’t buy Amazon gift cards online at Walgreens, you can check their availability on Walgreens’ website. You can add Amazon gift cards to your cart online and go to the store for pick-up.
You can’t return Amazon’s gift cards to Walgreens once you’ve bought them!
Walgreens’ return policy does not allow you to return non-returnable items like gift cards. Why? Because once you pay for your Amazon gift card—or even any other gift card at Walgreens, the clerk will often activate the card for you.
Amazon gift cards have no expiration date. You’ll have to use your purchased Amazon gift card to buy something from Amazon or its affiliates.
But the good thing is that Amazon gift cards have no expiration date. Since Amazon gift cards don’t expire, you can always redeem an Amazon gift card and add it to your account balance at any time.
What if you can’t get an Amazon gift card or the denomination you want at Walgreens? Or what if you want to buy an Amazon gift card online and not in-store?
