Several years ago I added a pre-paid Amex card to my Amazon. com account as a payment method and at the time I had followed instructions posted here or elsewhere (honestly cannot remember) to get the card added to the account without allowing it to do the $1 pre-authorization to confirm the card is valid (so that I could use all the funds immediately without waiting for the authorization to fall off).
I vaguely remember the instructions were to enter the card information but purposely put something in wrong (cannot remember if it was the expiration date or the card number itself) and then go back and edit it after it was added.
I have Googled but am not having any luck in finding the instructions to do this again with another card that expires soon that I'd like to add and buy a gift card with.
Does anyone have the instructions on how to to do this??
