Here’s how to make an Amazon.com Store Card payment:
Online: Log in to your online account to schedule a payment. You can make a payment any day during the billing period up to the due date. From the Payments tab, scroll and click “Make a Payment.” Select the payment amount and include your bank’s routing number and account information. Verify your payment information and click “Make a Payment.”
By phone: Call customer service 24/7 at (866) 634-8379. When prompted, press “1” and enter your account number, or your Social Security number (SSN). Follow the voice prompts to make a payment or speak to a customer service representative. There’s no charge to pay by phone, if you use the automated system, unless you ask for an expedited payment.
Via mail: Lastly, you can send a copy of your Amazon.com Store Card monthly statement and a check or money order made out to:
Synchrony / Amazon
P.O. Box 960013
Orlando, FL 32896.
Make sure to include your account number on your payment. Synchrony Bank only accepts payments drawn from a U.S. bank account and does not allow cash payments.
Synchrony Bank offers a 23-day grace period from the close of the billing period until the payment due date. If you make your Amazon.com Store Card payment in full during this timeframe each month, you’ll avoid paying interest charges.
You also have the option to set up your account for recurring payments online. After logging in, enter your bank account information and select your desired payment amount. Choose from the minimum payment due, statement balance, current balance or other amount. Synchrony will debit your account for the designated amount on the scheduled payment date each month.
It’s important to note that these payment instructions are specific to the Amazon.com Store Card, which is issued by Synchrony Bank. The Amazon.com Credit Card is a separate credit card account issued by Chase Bank. Its cardholders will need to contact Chase with any payment questions.
I feel I need to write this review. I am very angry about how slow Synchrony Bank takes to post a payment. This is ridiculous. Today is May 10th and I made a payment on May 2nd. A payment should not take this long to post to our Amazon account or any account. Synchrony got their money within 1 or 2 days. This is unacceptable to me. I went to make a purchase with my Amazon card and was declined. This is not an Amazon issue this is Synchrony Bank issue. Synchrony you really need to get with the times and post payments faster. I was told it could take up to 6 business days for a payment. That is way too long.
No, you cannot use your Amazon.com Store Card anywhere; this card can only be used to make purchases from Amazon.com, Audible.com, and certain Amazon merchants who have enabled the store card as a “Pay With Amazon” payment option. There are exceptions, however. You can’t use your Amazon.com Store Card to pay for rentals, digital magazine or newspaper subscriptions, cell phones linked to plans, purchases from Amazon subsidiaries, Amazon game and software downloads, digital add-on subscriptions (Starz, Hulu, and GameFly, for example), or Amazon Restaurant items. You cannot use the Amazon.com Store Card at Whole Foods, either, though you can use the … read full answerAmazon.com Credit Card there.
The Amazon.com Store Card is a store credit card, or a “closed loop” credit card, which is why you won’t be able to use it outside of Amazon.com, Audible.com and certain affiliated merchants. For example, you won’t be able to use the Amazon.com Store Card at a Walmart or a gas station.
Considering the wide range of things you can buy on Amazon, these exclusions shouldn’t necessarily keep you from applying for the Amazon.com Store Card. You’ll still get a big discount on Amazon purchases by using this card as a Prime member, after all. You can learn more about this offer from our in-depth Amazon.com Store Card review.
