The Amazon.com Credit Card does not offer price protection. The Amazon.com Credit Card’s lack of a price protection benefit is not uncommon these days, as more and more credit cards have dropped this perk. Recent advances in price-tracking technology have led to a dramatic increase in price protection claims, making the benefit too expensive for some issuers to sustain.
In general, credit card price protection allows cardholders to receive a refund for the difference between an item’s original purchase price and a lower price advertised within the following 60 to 120 days. Coverage amounts and excluded items vary, depending on the credit card issuer.
Keep in mind that, if you want to pay a Amazon.com Store Card bill, you will have to choose between slightly different payment methods, as the store version of this card is issued by a different bank.
Here’s how you can pay your Amazon.com Credit Card:
Online: Log into your account, select your Amazon.com Credit Card, click "Pay credit card" and follow the instructions to enter your payment account number and routing number.
Mobile app: Get the mobile app and after signing in, choose the account for the card you want and tap "Pay card". Then, enter the amount, the account you want to pay from, and the payment date. Tap "Schedule," then confirm your choices and, finally, tap "Schedule it".
By phone: You can also pay your Amazon.com Credit Card bill over the phone. Call (800) 436-7958 and follow the prompts from the issuer’s automated system.
At an ATM/branch: Find the card issuer’s nearest ATM or branch and make your payment there.
