That means if you want to make one last stab at it — and you haven’t already sent $1000 through the service in October — you have only a few hours left.
The great thing about Amazon payments is that nobody had ever heard of them. Everyone knows Paypal. And Amazon wanted to break into that market. So they made themselves super user-friendly, allowing you to send people up to $1000 per month charged to a credit card with no fee. The idea was that could help them gain traction in the marketplace.
Of course plenty of people sent $1000. Those people deposited the money into their checking accounts. And sent $1000 back to the original sender. It was an easy way to earn miles.
That’s going to end tonight. You can still send your $1000 for October today only.
