You can Top-Up in many different ways, either doing it online via a debit or credit card, buying a pre-loaded top up card from the shops then applying this to the account or simply been given top-up voucher codes off your friends and family on special occasions, these can then be applied to your account.

Why should you top up when you could simply just pay for the stuff on Amazon by using a debit or credit card? Well I've pondered over this very question for a while now and I always come to the same conclusion. That conclusion, which I may add took many twists and turns in my head, is that it lets you save up for the things you want further down the line, it's as simple as that.

However, the top up function has its merits. For instance, I forget things quite a lot, and sometimes when I'm buying something which is expensive and go to checkout, I am pleasantly surprised with the message that I have a gift card balance, now that puts a smile on my face and I have the option of using it or ignoring the balance for another day.

As well as adding to the balance yourself, you sometimes get free money to apply to the balance, I'm not talking about presents off friends and family, I'm talking those free thank you gift card Amazon vouchers, now that's where the top-up balance comes into play. Just recently I had a £20 gift card from Amazon for just opening up an Amazon credit card, now that's free money.

What I would like to see is an option where Amazon automatically rounds up your purchases to the nearest pound and applies the difference to the gift card balance. Some banks do this and it helps with saving up.

You can top up from just a £1 online, each top up is valid for 10 years!

So yeh, I like the gift card top ups, easy, fast and manageable.

Recommended.
