Easiest Way To Consolidate Amazon Transactions
I made an Amazon order from a number of different sellers today, which usually appears as multiple transactions (as each seller ships). This approach gives me a single transaction on my CC:
- Copy the final total on the checkout page (call it $X) before the final confirmation
- In a secondary tab or window, go to My Account | Gift Cards | Reload Balance, specify $X
- Refresh the main checkout page, specify the Gift Card Balance in the Payment Options, and confirm the purchase
If you're frazzled by Amazon orders being broken up, give it a try!
If this is something that comes up alot and if all your Amazon transactions go to one category anyway you could have a PIF card just for Amazon. Dont track the card in YNAB and set it up for auto pay in full each month then all your amazon transactions are combined into one transaction when the payment comes though.
