This Site is currently a work-in-progress!
Imagine you'll have birthday soon. You're asked several times by many people what you wish. Preferably, you'd have hard cash gifted, but most people hesitate. "That's not individual enough", they say, "I want to gift you something more personal and special!".
Unfortunately, they don't. They just gift you small presents you don't really need or they offer to pair up in order to gift you a bigger present. This may be possible sometimes, but usually you want to chose your exact PC specifications or reflex camera model yourself, and that's only if this is not too expensive. To top it all, those little present you get aren't worth anything for saving since few banks or shops accept those little here's-what-I-could-afford-for-yous as payment.
The "solution" most people use are coupons. Despite them not being more individual in any way, most people accept them as present and will happily gift them to you. At least you can choose what you buy yourself with them, better than nothing. Amazon coupons are a popular choice since those are among the most versatile ones and you usually find something on Amazon. That's what gave this site its name.
All coupons, however, do have significant drawbacks. They can only be used at one specific shop, which may not have the exact thing you want or doesn't make the best offer. They can also expire and finding them again (or thinking of them again for that matter) is an exercise itself. That's were this site kicks in: Instead of a normal coupon you tell everyone to gift you Better Than Amazon coupon, a coupon far more versatile and individual than anything else out there!
To get things straight: A Better Than Amazon Coupon is an easy way to wish for hard cash and to gift it in a lovely and individual way. This site attempts to get hard cash in the coupon section, which is frequently used for gifts. Don't look so disappointed - a Better Than Amazon coupon will make you and the one you gift to by far more happier than any other coupon. A lovely looking Better Than Amazon coupon is more individual and personal than a quick bought iTunes coupon.
To be exact, wishing for a Better Than Amazon coupon has many advantages. At a first glance you get 'BTA-credit' (read: hard cash), which is more versatile and easier to save than any other coupon. But there's more to this: You actually help spreading the idea and maybe one of your friends will have an easier thought on what to wish for. Also, those coupons are easy to make and don't require much material. Selfless wishing for hard cash that saves your friends time and money - what's better than this? ;)
Now you know at least what a Better Than Amazon coupon is. What now? Well, that depends on you! If you're here just because you wanted to know what this is, you may bookmark the site (Strg+D respectively ⌘+D) and inspire a friend or your wishes at a later time. If you're searching for a fitting gift or if you're looking for inspiration, you should have a look at our templates and examples. If you have designed a coupon yourself and want to see it on this site, are wondering who made this site and how to contact him or just want to chat a little, the impress is what you're looking for.

Whats about the history of this site? Well, it all began when some of my friends started gifting each other these coupons, but back then they didn't use this name. About a year later, I was gifted two of these coupons, by now using this name and one was even referencing this site. A while later I heard my mum talking with a friend about what to gift my uncle. I tried to show them this site and found out that its not yet created. So, I simply created it ;)
