Amazon to offer $10 gift cards for $5

Amazon to offer $10 gift cards for $5 Amazon has announced it will sell $10 Amazon gift cards for 50 percent off on its daily deals site AmazonLocal on Tuesday.
The daily deal site is nine-months old but has seen little consumer interest compared to behemoths like Groupon and LivingSocial.

Says AmazonLocal VP Mike George: "Some folks, even if they're Amazon customers, don't know about us yet. This is going to draw a whole bunch of people to check us out.

It's hard for me to imagine anyone who wouldn't be interested in the deal. Amazon sells everything from Brazilian keratin treatments to snowblowers."


Amazon made a similar promo via LivingSocial last year, selling 1.4 million $20 gift cards for half off in just two days.

Local is available in 90 cities and is still expanding.

It says Amazon gift cards, so I'm *assuming* (but could be wrong) that they are gift cards for Amazon purchases.

Basically 50% off any future purchase if you have enough amazon gift cards to cover it right? Or are you limited to a certain number of cards per purchase I wonder. I would use 500 of em to get a nice new computer...

1 per household is how the deal was for LivingSocial so I will assume it is exactly the same this time.

Yeah I figure it will be 1 per houshold..Saving $5 makes it questionable on being worth messing with. Now if you could do $500...that would be worth it...lol


Just my $0.02,
