Localized Amazon Gift Certificates

Hello SDN Team,

as a price for the first 1000 points in SDN I've received a 50 US Dollar Amazon Gift Certificate. The problem was that I'm living in Germany and this Certificate is not valid in the Amazon Shop So I had to order via This resulted in 14,45 $ Shipping and with a Goods price of 57,45 $ in 11,07 Euros customs duty. So my 50 $ certificate was worth only 25. I would suggest that if you plan to give this prices in future it should be localized to the location of the winner.

    Hi Gregor,

    That hurts. We were not aware, that the Amazon Gift Certificates are not transferable to local Amazon shops. So lame from and you wonder how international they are after all. 😔

    If you want to get around the shipping and customs, check out their eBooks section. Of course it does not help when you don't like to read books on your computer or PDA 😔

    We will find other gift certificate programs in the future, their loss.

    Sorry to you and all the others for this disappointment, Mark.
