Amazon Payments is one of the best ways to meet minimum spend or liquidate gift cards because it is quick, easy, and free. I do not recommend making multiple accounts in your name, as you will be shut down. People have been using it for a while and as long as you keep it simple and follow the rules you should not be shut down.
How to Use Visa Gift Cards Online for Partial Payment | GCG
Given the recent holiday season, it’s likely you received a present in the form of a pre-paid gift card. For those of you who like shopping on Amazon, you may realize that using those gift cards isn’t so easy. The main issue is that Amazon doesn’t allow you to split the purchase costs using multiple payment methods. Basically, if you’re planning to buy an item that cost more than the value of your gift card and you want to use your debit/credit card to pay the difference, you’re out of luck.

While Amazon won’t let you split payments among multiple credit cards, they allow you to pay both with an Amazon gift card and another form of payment! It’s easy to use up your old Visa gift card by turning it into an gift card. Send it to yourself as an e-gift card (which you get immediately in your email) and then use that to pay on Amazon!
Simply add your gift card balance to Amazon Pay balance first.
Amazon does take many types of debit cards, including any debit card with the STAR or NYCE as well as Visa and MasterCard branded debit cards. If you have an Amazon gift card, you can even split your payment between the gift card and the debit card. However, you cannot split payments among multiple debit cards. Depending on available stock, Amazon may split an order into multiple shipments. Because its policy is to charge your debit card only when items are shipped, you may see multiple charges for one order that are split into multiple shipments. However, the total for the order remains the same as the amount charged when you placed the order.Although Amazon doesn’t offer a way to use multiple payment methods directly, there is an easy workaround: just use gift cards (or regular credit cards) to buy Amazon gift cards for yourself! If you order them online, you can have Amazon send them to you via email, so you can easily apply them to your own account. Using my TV example, you could convert the three $50 gift cards into three $50 Amazon gift codes, which would total $150 in Amazon credit. You could buy the TV using your gift balance and charge the difference to another card.
