How to Get Amazon Prime Membership without US Credit Card Information and how you can buy Amazon Prime Movie using only Amazon Gift Card.
Apparently few readers has feedback to us that they were unable to buy Amazon Prime Movies using Amazon Gift Card recently, the system will prompt for entering the US credit card details. After we got the feedback, we have proceeded to buy the Amazon Prime Video using Amazon Gift Card on our Kindle Fire HDX, and we did not face any issue. Most likely Amazon has updated their system and some users were affected, probably those newly opened accounts (our guessing only).
After much finding and testing, we have found TWO solutions to this issue (make sure you read all two methods):
If you already an Amazon Prime Member and your membership expiry is still far ahead. Obviously, you will not be willing to cancel your Amazon Prime membership now. Since the system is now not allow you to buy Amazon Prime video using gift card, then the only way to continue to purchase the Amazon Prime Movie is to use a US virtual credit/debit card. Google around or search in eBay, you should be able to find people selling this. We don’t have any recommended seller, so do communicate properly and find out more details from whoever selling it to you. Once you go the card, you can enter it into your Amazon Prime account just like any US credit card. The down side of using virtual credit/debit card is they are more expensive, but they will solve your problem at this point of time.
