Everyone loves an Amazon gift card, and if Amazon were given the chance, everyone would stick with Amazon gift cards. Amazon makes a very good gift item as a result of the many benefits they offer, as well as the card’s flexibility. And while Amazon gift card is a good gift item, a better gift card is the Visa gift card.
In many cases, a Visa gift card is much preferable to cash. Here’s why: an Amazon gift card can not be used in a local restaurant, to purchase movie tickets, and you can’t use cash to shop on Amazon or other online retailers. So, why not a Visa gift card? Or better still, have a blend of the two? Did you know you can use a Visa gift card on Amazon? All you have to do is follow the simple steps below.
How To Use Your Visa Gift Card To Buy on Amazon
To use a Visa gift card on Amazon, log on to Amazon’s ‘Reload Your Balance’ page.
Enter the amount on your Visa gift card.
Sign in to your account. You will still be required to sign in to your account even if you are logged in to your account.
Click on ‘Edit’ in the payment method box; you’ll then be redirected to a new page where you’ll click ‘Add a card’
Enter your gift card information in the specified fields and click next. If skeptical about the name on the card, there is a balance check number on the back of the card that you can call to confirm.
Choose the gift card as the payment method and click ‘Done’
You’ll then be redirected to the reload your balance screen.
Verify the amount of the gift card and then click ‘Reload’ button. When next you shop on Amazon, make sure to select the gift card you just loaded as your payment method — you can identify it by the last four digits of the number on the front.
To add to the many benefits of using your Visa gift card on Amazon, there is no minimum or maximum amount required on your Visa gift card to reload your Amazon gift card balance. Keep in mind that your Visa gift card may have an expiration date. Reloading your Amazon balance is a great way to avoid losing the funds.
