25$ Amazon Reward Update -Out Of Stock

Hello Members,

It seems you really really enjoy the Amazon rewards. That’s brilliant! We’ve had them in and then, we blinked, and woosh, they were gone!  As a result, we unfortunately need to temporarily deactivate the option while we re-stock.

We are doing our best to process outstanding requests as quickly as possible, and we will notify members with payments pending via email of any issues or delays.  Once we re-launch, we will be sure to let you know that this great payment option is available again.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.  Please stay tuned for updates on Amazon.com Gift Cards.

See you soon,
The Toluna Team
