Amazon.com has announced a new method for sending Amazon.com Gift Cards to friends on Facebook. Customers can now connect to their Facebook account on Amazon.com (www.amazon.com/giftcards-facebook) and create a personalized gift card that will be delivered on the recipient’s Facebook Wall.
After you connect your Facebook account on Amazon.com you can choose a gift card design, specify an amount up to $5,000 and provide an optional gift card message. The sender can also schedule the date for the gift card to appear on the recipient’s Facebook Wall up to a year in advance.
In addition, Amazon is now offering a “Give 5, Get $5” promotion for a limited time. Starting today, the first 10,000 customers who give an MP3-themed Amazon.com Gift Card to five different Facebook friends will get a $5 credit good for music downloads at Amazon MP3. Hey I am all about convenience, but to be honest I just don’t know that I trust Facebook this much and I really don’t think its a great idea for someone to be able to give me money and have it to be posted to my FB wall, some things I just prefer not to share, how about you?
