If you haven't heard, Amazon has launched their new Visa Gift card program, which is a great way for customers to get a few dollars off the purchase of items from Amazon. There are a few ways that you can get money off of your Amazon purchases, but most of them require you to use a credit card.
The process of buying items using your credit card is pretty easy, but it isn't a simple one. You have to go to a website that accepts the card, fill out a form, and then pay for the item. That's it! The card is yours to keep, but you need to remember to keep the receipt or the website may not be able to charge your account.
One reason that many people do not take advantage of the cards is the fact that they feel like they are being forced into using a card. This is true. But you don't have to accept that mindset if you aren't interested in using the card. You can get the same amount of money back by simply shopping at other retailers. You can even use the card for other uses than shopping at Amazon.
You can also earn points from the card, just as you would through American Express or MasterCard. You can earn more points by using the card, and also by spending more money on the website. Once you have earned enough points, you will be able to redeem them for gift cards and cash back. The maximum amount of points that you can earn is $200, so make sure that you spend plenty of time shopping.
You should also keep in mind that if you choose not to use the card, you may lose the opportunity to earn points or even to earn cash back. It is a good idea to make purchases that you know you will make, like books and DVDs. Otherwise, you may end up spending too much money on the site but don't realize it. You might end up using the card to make purchases you never intended to buy, and this will ruin your chance to earn points or cash back.
So what are you waiting for? Use the card! There are many reasons to do so, and you can earn money off of all of your purchases this.
