How to convert my US Dollars Amazon giftcard to British Pounds?

It was my birthday last month and my cousin who lives in the US bought me a $50 amazon giftcard hoping that when it was sent to me (through email) it would convert to British pounds but it wasn't. When I log into my account the UK version of amazon, the giftcard isn't ion my account. When I'm on the US version of the site, the giftcard is on my account. This is a real inconvenience because if I want to buy anything, I have to pay a crap load for shipping and the items will take forever to get to me. Is there a way to transfer the giftcard to my UK account?


Thanks for the help, I contacted them and they said there is no way around it.
