    Does anybody know if you can use Credit on an Amazon account to purchase an Amazon Gift Card with it?

    Not here, but I would guess they charge heavy interest from the date of purchase, just like a cash advance.

    Better to pay the amount into your account first, then buy the card.

    Just my opinion.

    Oh, wait. I don't mean a Credit Card. I mean using Credit that's on my account already, to buy a gift card. As if I input two 25 dollar gift cards to my account already, can I turn that into a 50 dollar gift card?

    It says you can't use a gift card to buy another gift card but I don't know about credit on your account. Why not just try it?

    It won't work, I've been down that road already.
