“Amazon Prime Pmts” Show Up On Your Credit Card? Here’s What It Mean

Nowadays, you can purchase nearly anything you want from Amazon–an audiobook, groceries, or even a personalized cardboard cutout 

While many of these items are offered at a low price, you can snag them for even cheaper (and with free shipping) if you purchase an Amazon Prime membership 

Amazon Prime launched back in 2005 and began offering its customers incentives if they elected to buy a membership 

And if you recently noticed "Amazon Prime Pmts" posted on your credit card statement, it's because you agreed to become an Amazon Prime member 

When you sign up for Amazon Prime, you’re essentially agreeing to Amazon’s terms and conditions and recurring payments 

These payments can be deducted from your credit or debit card monthly or once a year, depending on your preference 

When you’re charged for an Amazon Prime membership, it might show up on your statement as “Amazon Prime Pmts.”
