Today Amazon introduced a new way to give a gift to your Facebook friends. You can now build a gift card collectively among your Facebook friends for someone that has a birthday. You add $1 and up to the birthday pot and on the day of the birthday the recipient receives the gift.
Simply head over to Amazon.com/birthdaygift to check out the new service. I think this a wonderful idea that can potentially make someone’s birthday REALLY special. It allows you to give small or large amounts of money anonymously.
For a limited time if you try the service you get a $3 credit.
So who’s birthday is coming up?
“Amazon Birthday Gift, a new way for customers to surprise friends on their birthdays by joining together to send Amazon.com Gift Cards with birthday messages on Facebook. Once a single friend starts a gift, any of the recipient’s Facebook friends can contribute — and many individual contributions can add up to a big gift.”
