As the largest grocery store in the UK, Tesco sells pretty much everything you could wish to get your hands on including an excellent range of gift cards.
Gift cards are a fantastic way to show your appreciation or as a present to someone and the more gift cards a store sells, the merrier, in our view.
But what about Amazon gift cards?
Does Tesco sell them?
To help you out there, we’ve contacted 3 Tesco superstores in the UK, looked on the app, and also on Tesco’s website to find out.

Does Tesco Sell Amazon Gift Cards? The Short Answer
We visited 3 separate Tesco stores in the UK and discovered that Tesco no longer seems to be selling Amazon gift cards like it once did (we’ve covered below what to do instead).
While they did stock many other gift cards, we couldn’t see Amazon ones present.
This is contrary to other information online including Amazon’s own website which lists Tesco as a stockist.
To further our research, we also contacted Tesco by phone but their inquiry system is pretty much fully automated now so it wasn’t possible to get through to customer services at any of the stores outside the ones we visited.
Does Tesco.com Sell Amazon Gift Cards?
We checked over at Tesco.com and it would seem that Tesco no longer sells Amazon gift cards like it once did.
Here is a screenshot of the gift cards it does sell, however:
As you’ll note, unfortunately, there’s no sign of Amazon gift cards.
Does the Tesco App Sell Amazon Gift Cards?
We downloaded the app to see what we could find.
We did a search for Amazon gift cards and it brought up these results.
They clearly sell Peperami Firesticks but no sign of Amazon gift cards.
Tesco now allows you to check every item they have in stock on the app so this seems to be a pretty big indicator that they no longer stock Amazon gift cards, otherwise, presumably, they would have shown up.

Where to Source Amazon Gift Cards Instead
The best place to source Amazon gift cards is Amazon itself.
They offer free next-day delivery on gift cards even for non-prime members and you can order up to £1000, whereas most brick-and-mortar stockists only sell them up to £25-100 in value.
Amazon even ships your gift card in a gift box or gift envelope.
Here is a list of other stockists according to Amazon:
- Card Factory
- Clinton Cards
- Grainger Games
- Martin McColls (MRG)
However, we found that many of the other major supermarkets like Morrisons, Asda, and Sainsbury’s don’t appear to have Amazon gift cards in stock either.
We hope this is just a temporary thing and if you have experienced anything different, then please let us know in the comments section below.
Contrary to pretty much every other site online, including Amazon’s own information, we couldn’t find anything to suggest that Tesco sells Amazon gift cards.
We visited 3 stores and did not see them, albeit they did have a wide variety of other cards in stock.
As above, we also checked Tesco.com and their app without any luck.
In conclusion, the best thing to do is to buy an Amazon gift card straight from Amazon. You even get free delivery and a pretty gift-wrapped box or envelope to seal the deal.
While we cannot rule out that some Tesco’s sell Amazon gift cards, the safest option, for now, seems to be to work on the assumption that they do not and to order your gift card elsewhere.
If you manage to find Amazon gift cards at your local Tesco, then please let us know where (and when) in the comments so we can update our article.
