Pay Amazon with PayPal?

Yes you can! Since Amazon will not (yet) accept PayPal funds, you have to add an easy step in the middle to make this work...

  • Select the item you wish to purchase on Amazon. Put in Cart
  • Go to Amazon checkout... wait at this page.
  • Open another browser window.
  • Go to Gyft.com or use Gyft app.Purchase an Amazon Gift Card. (I did and got $5 off since it was my first Gyft order)
  • Get the Amazon card's redemption code in the email you provided Gyft.comPay as normal at Amazon but use newly-issued redemption code 

This worked very quickly and easily tonight! I have leapt over a limitation that PayPal won't work on Amazon. I believe it will expand to include a direct payment to Amazon through PayPal, but I will not when this is happening!

So one MacBook Pro battery for my son away at college is heading his way!
