A friend of mine just linked me to this Fatwallet Finance discussion about the end of Amazon Payments. It looks like the end of the program is near.
It’s been a great run for Amazon Payments
I first wrote about Amazon Payments in April 2013 here. Amazon Payments has been a great way to earn some extra points and miles by sending someone up to $1,000 per month with your credit card without paying any fees.
As of October 13, 2014, Amazon Payments users will no longer be able to send, receive, or request money from other Amazon Payments users. I’m not complaining too much because this method of manufactured spending has lasted quite some time!
This means you can still send up to $1,000 until the end of September, and another $1,000 until October 12, 2014. But that’s it.
The game keeps changing and we will find other ways to earn more points and miles. Read more about the upcoming changes to Amazon Payments here.
