Like, the itunes cards for Apple products, but the Kindle fire hd, uses android market. (and i think amazon) so to like buy paid apps, i am going to buy a google play gift card. So I wanted to know if you can use one for it.

A Kindle Fire cannot utilize the Google Play store unless it is 'rooted'.

Rooting is a process similar to 'jailbreaking' a game system or 'unlocking' a cell phone. It would void your warranty immediately.

Kindle Fire is an Amazon product and uses their app store.

You would not be able to do so directly. However, if you sideload the Kindle Fire HD, then you will be able to load Google Play apps onto it. It is just a matter of changing the settings and downloading the android APK file onto the Kindle. It might be complicated for some people.

No you can't, because the Kindle Fire can't access Google Play store directly. You can sideload Google Play apps however, here's a good discussion on this:

Hope that helps.
