No gift purchases

Seems that Amazon doesn't allow you to purchase books with gift vouchers.

I see now that I was kind of mistaken. It was in my Kindle Wish List where I've put some books I am interested in. In order not to go nuts with 1-Click buying I've bought myself some Amazon Gift Vouchers, hence purchases will be deducted from a positive balance.

However, this got me thinking. Is it possible for me to buy a book for Kindle and have it delivered to someone else as a birthday gift? Pre-set delivery time, kind of thing.

Kumabjorn, you're right that Amazon will apply your gift voucher automatically when you make a 1-click purchase.

But that only applies to Amazon in the US. With Amazon UK gift vouchers, the small print specifically disallows them for 1-click purchases (I'm not sure about other countries.)

Re your other question: No, I don't think you can buy a book as a gift (although I don't know why not). You would have to give a gift voucher as a gift, which isn't the same thing at all.

Exactly, wouldn't it be great if you could send a book to someone's Kindle with a little message attached?

I guess you need some kind of pre-approval, otherwise there is a potential for misuse, maybe even abuse.
