I just ordered an Amazon gift card and there was no shipping and handling.. Does anyone know if there usually isnt?  I almost did the 2 day shipping but ended up not doing it and then it went to something that was 'Free 2 day shipping" but then you have to pay 79 for a year or something.. I really hope i didnt do that thing though?  Does anyone know if gift cards usually are free shipping and handling?

Usually anything from amazon(not partner companies)over 25 dollars is free. If you did the amazon prime you would have been taken to a comfirmation page.

They probably just mail it in a prepaid postage envelope.

 I would write them and make sure you didn't sign up.

I did that once, forgot about it and ended up having the money taken out of my account.

They refunded the money, lucky me. I still can't believe a company fixed something that was completely my own fault.

I don't see why you'd have to pay shipping on a gift card...it doesn't weigh much at all....??

It depends on what shipment you chose.  There's like 4 different types of shipment.  One is the expedited shipment that comes 1-3 days, Amazon Prime-Where you pay a flat fee the whole yr.  Standard shipping-1-2 weeks.  Or the super-saver shipping.  The super saver shipping is anything over 25 that qualifies in the super saver program.  I ordered COD for dh by super-saver, I paid 0 shipping.  However it does take a lil bit longer to ship sometimes.  You can click on your account on the upper right side of the screen.  There you can track your package and view your invoice detail.  A couple blocks below it you can see Amazon Prime.  If you click on Manage Amazon Prime, it should tell you if you are enrolled or not. 

ETA: Everything gets weighed to either pay for shipping/free shipping.  We have to weigh it to ship it out or UPS/and others get finicky about it.  The moment you click submit payment the order gets seperated into different facillities/warehouses.  Those scales pick up everything at Amazon's warehouses as they do at the post offices.
