Some times it takes minutes sometimes a couple of hours.  I think it has to do with the volume of Amazon traffic and how long it takes to process the credit card.  Did you get an email receipt for the gift certificate from Amazon?  You should be able to go into your account and see the gift certificate in your order history.  I buy then all the time.

My sister in Kentucky is still recovering at home from some major surgery and is into the Karen Kingsbury series of books. Her book store is sort of far for her to go to on her on so she asked me to order them for her from Amazon,

Once i got the 5 books she wanted in the old shopping cart, it was time to check out. To my horror, it was wanting to use my gift card on her purchases! Nonononononoooo!

It took me a while but I found the book it was applying the gift card to and was able to change the method pf payment. My Kindle card was saved for me! YAY!
You have to watch that, once you have a gift card balance they will use it for everything you purchase form Amazon. I have to watch and go in on every non-Kindle order and change the payment method. Otherwise I run out of Kindle money.
