Give a recurring or one-time allowance to easily fund shopping on Amazon. Allowances automatically add funds to your recipient's Amazon.com Gift Card Balance that can be used to shop for millions of products. You can also give Amazon Allowances to yourself as a way to set aside a budget or save up for shopping on Amazon.com. Those under 18 may use Amazon.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
Note: Amazon Allowance will be discontinued on July 30, 2020. You can no longer create or request an Amazon Allowance as of June 30, 2020. For information on previously scheduled Allowances please refer to the FAQ page. Please visit our Buying & Sending Gift Cards Help page for alternate Gift Card options.
To give an Amazon Allowance:
Allowances will be delivered on the scheduled date (Pacific Time). Typically, allowances are delivered by 10 a.m. Pacific time on the scheduled delivery date, but in rare cases may be delayed up to 24 hours.
The payment instrument selected will be charged on each successful delivery of an allowance. You and the recipient will receive e-mail notifications each time an allowance is successfully delivered. If we have difficulty processing a payment for an allowance, we'll turn off the allowance and notify you by e-mail. You can create a new allowance by returning to the Give an Amazon Allowance page.
