Last month I reported that Amazon Payments would no longer allow users to manufacture spend. Starting October 13, 2014, Amazon Payments news terms of service go into effect.

Here is the update in the terms of service: 

Additionally, we have updated the terms and conditions of our User Agreement that apply to your use of the products and services provided by Amazon Payments. Our updated User Agreement revises certain terms (including, among other things,the elimination of person-to-person payments). Our new User Agreement will become effective on October 13, 2014, which is more than 30 days from when we first posted our updated User Agreement. By continuing to use our services after October 13, 2014, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions of our new User Agreement.

Amazon Payments Manufactured Spending

Customers will no longer be able to manufacture spend with Amazon Payments starting on October 13, 2014.

So if you haven’t done so already, make sure to get your Amazon Payments done today! If you don’t have time, you’ll have until October 12.

I’ll be manufactured spending my last $2,000 with Amazon Payments on one of my Citi Hilton Reserve cards. As long as I spend $10,000 a year on the card, I’ll qualify for 1 free night on my anniversary when I renew. Amazon Payments was an easy way to meet the spending requirement since it would only take 5 months and absolutely no cost to me! Amazon Payments does not charge a fee when sending a credit card payment to and from accounts. Now that I’ll have to do some manufactured spending my my Citi Hilton cards to meet the requirement, I’ll be paying about $5 per $500 on gift card activation fees. Still not a bad deal, but free is always better 🙂
