W.  Frazier | 31 comments I just noticed on my Chase Amazon Visa account that Audible is considered "other" and not an Amazon purchase so the reward is 1% not the 3% for Amazon.

Does this differ according to which site you go to when you purchase your audio books -- Amazon.com or Audible.com?

Small detail but just wondering.

Faith | 404 comments When I buy a pair of Whispersync books I get two separate receipts, one from Amazon and one from Audible. Also, if I have a credit on Amazon it doesn't get applied to Audible purchases.

Hi Wendy,

It may be best to reach out directly to Amazon Customer Support, as it is their credit card, but we can at least put in our two cents.

Audible and Amazon items use separate billing systems. This might be why an Audible purchase is not counting an Amazon purchase.

W.  Frazier | 31 comments Thanks all for your input. They look to be separate entities regarding purchases. Good to know. Thanks again.

Agreed. Not happy.

I'd like to agree regarding not being able to use gift cards for Audible. I'd like that so much more. It'd be much easier for me to refrain from melting my credit card using Audible. If I could use Amazon gift cards I would be able to budget my spending a bit better.

Kristie | 2212 comments I would love it if Amazon gift cards could be used at Audible! Audible's "gift card" is really inflexible.
