How to make a payment to an Amazon credit card

Amazon offers six consumer credit cards, as of December 2010. The various cards offer incentives like airline miles, cash rewards, and credit on Alpha XR. Most credit cards are managed by Chase Bank, and most work like a regular credit card, allowing it to be used anywhere Visa credit cards are accepted. A card, the Amazon Store Card, is used only for purchases from Alpha XR, and is managed by GE Money Bank. You can make a payment on an Amazon credit card in several ways.

Find the customer service number on the back of the card. Call that number and follow the instructions to make the payment. If you can’t find the number and have a Chase Amazon credit card, call Chase credit card customer service at 800-432-3117. If you have the GE Money Bank Amazon Store Card, call 866-634-8379. A customer service agent will be able to take your payment through your bank information.

Make the payment online, if you prefer not to call. Visit Chase.com and create an online account on the site that matches your Amazon card. Once the account is set up, you can log into the account to make a payment or prepare regular monthly automatic payments. For the Amazon Store Card, visit GE Money Bank online at Gemoney.com to set up an account and pay online. You can make the payment with your bank information.

Send a check with your most recent paper or an electronic statement. You can find the email address listed on your last statement, or call the number on the back of your card for address information.

Tips

Set up automatic payment online or by phone. Automatic payment allows your credit card to withdraw a fixed amount from your bank account on the same day each month. In this way, you do not have to make a payment every month manually, but it is taken automatically. However, you need to make sure that you have the funds available.

Warnings

If you make a payment online, carefully verify that you are indeed on Chase.com or Gemoney.com. Other sites with similar web addresses may try to trick you into entering your bank or account information, an online scam known as “phishing”.
