Important Tip If You Use A Reward Checking Debit Card For Amazon Purchases

Sunday, August 18, 2013 - 2:57 PM
If you use a debit card to make Amazon purchases, those purchases may be treated as a PIN-less Debit. As I described last year, PIN-less debit card purchases may be treated like a PIN-based transaction which may not be considered as a qualified debit card purchase by some reward checking accounts.

Amazon has a page describing how to opt out of PIN-less debit card transactions. Credit for noting this issue and for the Amazon link goes to this FW thread.
