  1. Actually, these emails do come from Amazon and can be seen in your Amazon message center.

  2. Correct, I just got 3 as well and see them in my Amazon Message Center despite not seeing any such transactions. My guess is that either a faulty algorithm was used to generate the recipient list or there has been a major hack of I'm personally emailing to complain - if Amazon intentionally did this, it is really bad business and if it's a mistake or they've been hacked, they need to know.

  3. Confirmed they show up in the Amazon Messages Center, but still doesn't explain what they mean.

    They are worded in a way that makes it sounds like Amazon thinks I ordered all three gift cards. But no such orders show up. So -- is it just a badly worded email by Amazon? I presume so, as so many people have recieved it.
