Hi Dimers,

You might already know this since ages that Amazon allows us to pay partially via Amazon Pay Balance during payment of any type of product/service but I came across this tweet where it's mentioned - the option will soon be disabled for all.

It used to be very useful to claim offers on big purchases where we could claim credit card discounts on MOV and rest via Pay Balance at 5%. How do you feel about this?

Sad news. And very bad move from Amazon. Does this apply to shopping also or only for utility bills etc.?

Edit 1: checked just now for normal shopping. Apay balance can be utilised along with other payment modes.

No, not even for normal shopping. Amazon Pay's official FAQ reads this:-

You can use your Balance for purchase on Amazon, Bill Pay recharge or Online merchant like Ola, Uber, Swiggy and so on, if your purchase order cost is less than or equal to the Amazon Pay balance.

Lol so now Voucher has got special privilege over Gift card. Let's see where it leads to finally.

Maybe it will reduce usage of my SBI CB card for buying Amazon GVs

Pretty messed up move. It'll probably affect the usage negatively, many will avoid using it altogether as much as possible.

Still normal apay gv offers provide 3% cashback on amazon app.

Whereas icici apay cc only provides 2% flat cashback but it's unlimited cashback.
