For anyone buying Amazon GC, why not use your amazon credit card for 5% back which is effectively buying at 95% as your getting 5% back to use on future purchases?

 What ever your going to buy with the gc, just buy with the amazon credit card!

 Looking for a good explanation.

The are few reasons why people are looking for GC that:
1. amazon credit card can be linked to 1 Amazon account only and some people use Amazon GC at multiple accounts
2. If amazon suspend the Account where credit card linked to, you can not apply it to another Amazon account
3. amazon credit card is available for US residents only and GC can be used by international shoppers
4. Not everyone can qualify to amazon credit card due to low credit score or other reasons
5. Some need more Amazon GC than amazon credit card limits

Maybe more reasons that I can't think of now

More reasons to use GCs:

1. Amazon CC is issued by Chase
2. One maybe be banned by Chase
3. Chase might close your account and ban you if you earn "too many rewards" of any kind including Amazon cashback
4. You have to wait for statement close to get rewards (and they forfeited if they close account), GC savings are instant

Have supply of $75s and $500s now, 95.5%

Well you have to pay for gift cards right away. If you use the CC by the time you have to pay the CC you get the full $ back.

I thought you were amazing in general. Bec Staples sells amazon gc with cc, and IB, you earn more than 5%.

One major factor that @formereBayer left out, is that many buyers are buying tens of thousands per month. An Amazon cc wouldn't necessarily have that size credit line.
And if it's someone buying for a one time purchase, it's not with it to open an Amazon cc for one time use. Especially since they can get the same savings right here.

No we were talking about buying from here. Yes with an ink its definitely worth it.

Yes, factoring in you want to use multiple accounts and that you might not qualify for the credit card then those are some solid reasons.

  But with an ink or other cards, no need to lay out cash on the spot!
  And the PITN everytime sending someone money whether TD/ Chase or any other account while using quick pay/send money, account gets suspended or stuck for sending multiple payments to new users/recipients.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
