Set Up Amazon Allowance to Automatically Charge your BofA Better Balance Rewards Credit Card

(Hat Tip to Doctor of Credit’s post)

Good morning everyone, yesterday I wrote Bank of America BankAmeriCard Better Balance Rewards Intro and Quarterly Bonus Strategy where I showed how to reload your Amazon Gift Card balance.  Well, apparently there is an even easier way.  You can set up an automatic monthly, weekly, or daily reload using Amazon Allowance.  To learn more about Amazon Allowance and to set up your own Amazon Allowance, click here.

Amazon Allowance Intro

Even if you will be sending money (aka an allowance) to yourself, you need to set up the transfer.  The process is quick and easy.

Set Up Amazon Allowance

Since I will be using this to make 1 monthly purchase on my Bank of America BankAmeriCard Better Balance Rewards Credit Card (BBR CC), I name the transfer accordingly, enter my Amazon email address as the sender and receiver, enter $5, set frequency to monthly, and use today as the starting date.  Then I select my BBR CC and create the Amazon Allowance.

Amazon Allowance Configured

Your Amazon Allowance is created and the recipient’s email address will need to be verified before the Amazon Allowance transfer will begin.

View all Amazon Allowances

The sender and receiver will each receive an email.  The receiver will need to view the Amazon Allowance to activate the transfer.

After that, the Amazon Allowance is set up and you can view all outgoing and incoming Amazon Allowances on that page.

Amazon Allowance Transfer Verified

After you verify the receiver’s email address, the transfer will begin (assuming you had it start on that date).  The sender and receiver will both receive an email with details of the transfer.

If you view your Amazon Gift Card balance, you will see the Amazon Allowance funds are automatically added to your account.  From here, all you have to do is wait until next month for the next Amazon Allowance transfer to go through.  It couldn’t be any easier.

      I think you can have multiple Amazon Allowances set up with multiple credit cards. I only had one card in my Amazon account when I set up originally.

    How do you set up automatic daily allowance? I only see “monthly”, “weekly”, and “one time”.
