prepaid debit cards for e-books??

I know this might be a super silly question but I don't have a kindle or buy off of amazon.com.

I want to buy my mother a prepaid visa debit card for Christmas so she can spend it on books for her kindle (or whatever else she might want). Does amazon accept prepaid debit cards for their e-books? I'm not sure what kind of payments they accept.

I don't know (can't see why not?) but you can purchase Amazon.com gift cards in select grocery and convenience stores throughout the U.S.

This link has some stores where you can buy them at: http://hubpages.com/hub/Amazon-Gift-Cards (scroll down)
I also saw some at Target recently and at most grocery stores, though I have only seen them for $25 and $50 values

I got some at Vons (Safeway in other parts of the country), so check the major grocery store chains.

I know that amazon.com sells the cards but I was just wondering if they accept prepaid visa cards aswell. Thank you for your help though <33

I don't know about prepaid visa but Amazon has gift cards that she can use to buy ebooks.

You don't have to order them from Amazon, either. I noticed just the other day that they sold them at our Wal-Mart. I don't know if that holds up where you are but they might also be at a supermarket somewhere. :)

If you really need it to be prepaid visa, then I don't know... I don't know why they wouldn't accept them...

I would recommend an Amazin gc over a prepaid visa because you usually have to pay like a $3-5 fee to activate those, whereas a giftcard doesn't have a fee.

A giftcard is probably a better idea, yes, but a prepaid debit card should be able to be used anywhere a regular Visa is used.
