  1. I would like to buy an amazon video account for my daughter who lives in Ohio how do I do that
    Thank you

    • Hi Ruth,
      Thanks for the comment! As far as I can tell, you have to purchase the full Amazon Prime membership package in order to enjoy the Amazon Prime Video services. So, you can do one of two things:

      1) Purchase Amazon Prime for your daughter (she will get the video access plus free shipping and access to music)
      2) You can purchase an Amazon gift card for your daughter and she can use the gift card to purchase movie titles.

      I hope that helps!

    • Hi Bonnie, this is what Amazon says:

      If your recipient is already an Amazon Prime or Amazon Student member, or doesn’t want to use the Prime membership, they can exchange their gift for an Gift Card. The Gift Card will have a value equal to the original cost of the Prime membership gift (including sales tax). See Exchange a Prime Gift Membership.

      So it sounds like you can’t use it to directly renew your prime membership, but you can exchange the value for a gift card. Hope that helps!
