No, they do not. It's a scam.
If you go to a website, such as http://freecodesgenerator.com that have one of these so-called "Amazon generators", you can download it in RAR format directly from that website, but the actual generator program is embedded as a ZIP file within the RAR file, and it's password protected. You're instructed in the readme file to download a file from FileIce LLC that contains the password. When you get there, you will be prompted to either do a survey, or download and install an application to "unlock" the download just to get the password. Most of the time, these surveys do not unlock the file for downloading, so you must try another. Each time you do this, it earns the uploader of the file $1.00, even if the file unlocks to download or not.
Now, if you run the generator, it stops and gives a pop-up that an important update is needed. If you answer NO to updating it, the program ends. If you answer YES, it then takes you to yet ANOTHER file on FileIce to download, which requires more surveys, installing apps, etc.
In the end, the uploader earned about $10-$15.00 for each sucker that tried to get a non working generator. They're a scam.
Some of this generator codes work according to the expectation of the customers while others are just placed by hackers for distraction. You should consult the help departments of these websites to get reliable assistance on this.
