Sorry if this has already been asked, but I couldn't find the answer. If you withdraw your money as an Amazon.co.uk giftcard what amount do you get? For example, if you have $50 that you want to withdraw, how much would that be as a UK giftcard?

Thanks. The conversion rate is different on here though to the actual rate. With Paypal they convert it so it's the actual price, but redeeming an item on here is a different rate. Not sure which it would be.

Plus, take the $50 and the £30.83. Normally Amazon gift cards are exact amounts (e.g. £5, £10, £20). If I cashed out $50 would I get a £30 gift card and lose 83p?

Or say it converted to £32.50, would I get £30 and lose £2.50? Or would I get the full £32.50?

No, If you cash out $50 into uk money you will £30.83 because you will pay a fee for the exchang so thats why you wont get £32.50 you only get £30.83.



I hope I help a little with your question ...

No, I meant because Amazon is usually exact to the pound and normally to every £5. If it converts to £30.83 would I get an Amazon gift card for £30.83 because I've never seen one with pence, only exact pounds.

83p would be bad enough to lose if lost in conversion and the fact it needs to be exact, but say I had more dollars and it converted to £32.50 if it has to be exact would I lost £2.50? Or would that be given back to me (in dollars) for me to cash out another way or when I've saved up more?

If the dollars I had worked out at exactly £30 that would be fine because 5 goes into 30 and it's exact. That's a normal amount for Amazon vouchers to be. It's what happens to the extra. Any of the money between that exact amount (e.g. £30) and the next amount (in that example, £35).

Yes, it converts to £30.76 or £30.83 or whatever but Amazon Gift Cards are all to the exact amount. e.g £5, £10, £15, £20, £30, £50. It goes up in 5s or 10s. The gift card would surely be £30. So what would happen to that 76p or 83p, however much it is over the £30?

Would I lose that amount? Would it be given back to me in dollars?

I have to cash out in dollars so to be exact, especially if going by daily rates rather than the Points2Shop rate, makes it harder.

what you can do is sign up for a Paypal account then use points2shop to transfer the money into your Paypal then go to your Paypal account then request a check then after you get your check from the mail, go to a place that you can exchange the $50 into uk money so you can get all your money.


What is the point getting a gift if you can get the whole thing, you know :]
so you dont loose nothing ...
