Since founding as an online book store that used to be considered the competition to Barnes & Noble and Borders Books, Amazon.com has expanded its e-commerce tendrils into pretty much every product niche imaginable. These days, the company is more often compared to a Walmart or a Target, but that hasn’t stopped Amazon from developing their line of Kindle devices which were originally focused on reading electronic books. Like the store itself, Kindles have evolved into a whole lot more than their original intent, but they always offer a nod toward e-books and reading in general.
Amazon.com’s evolution has included other steps toward becoming more like physical retailers as well, and they have offered an Amazon.com store card for quite some time now. For those of you who have one of these online-store credit cards, you may be wondering how to pay your bill. If so, the following instructions will show you how:
