    Amazon announced today a Log in and Pay service! When you purchase items from companies you will be given the option of paying via your Amazon account. You can load your account with gift cards that you purchase with your credit card at 5x miles!
    More info at: payments.amazon.com

    You just gotta find sites that use Amazon Payments vs. Paypal now

    Hasn't this been around for years? I know Kickstarter uses Pay With Amazon, for one. Pretty sure other sites do also.

    Do you have a link to the new announcement?

    I'm just about as much a point junkie as the next guy, but I see nothing in Amazon Pay that would work for my life. And I hate getting money via paypal as a retailer. FWIW.

    Amazon Payments has been around since 2010. The only new thing seems to be how Amazon is promoting it and listing these other stores.

    For some time I have been buying 5x Amazon gift cards and simply loading my regular Amazon account. Almost anything we buy can be deducted from that account. BTW - Amazon Kindle GCs are simply Amazon cards - not specific to Kindle purchases.

    I use amazon payments to pay myself every month at 1x because it's easy. I also always have a Amazon gift card balance because I buy gift cards with my Ink card at office supply stores.
