Amazon Account Closures

Amazon Mysterious Account Closures

Hundreds of Amazon customers have taken to social media to voice frustrations about their accounts being mysteriously deactivated, with no reason given by the online retailer. For the past week, customers have reported that when attempting to log in to their Amazon accounts, a message pops up stating that an account associated with their email address doesn't exist. It appears both Prime and non-Prime members have been affected.

Looks like Chase is handling Amazon accounts now. Anyone had their Amazon account closed? These are Amazon account, not credit accounts, closures. Edited by credit_help

Yes, these are referring to actual AMAZON accounts - nothing to do with credit cards.

 

When I tried to log-in on Thursday it came up saying that I was using the "incorrect" password (I wasn't) and finally sent me through the password reset exercise.

 

No I wasn't being hacked or spoofed.

 

I was using bookmarked links on my PC.

 

I closed my Amazon Prime Sync card a few months ago. I saw no point in having 2 cards for Amazon once the Chase card started giving the 5%. Now it appears that they will also be offering the promo 0% financing as well..

Keeping both for now, either issuer could discontinue the 5%. So too would I'd rather have an on-board back-up, just in case, for e.g., one or the other has earned a place in the sock drawer.

I doubt they will discontinue the 5% .. it is the perk offered by that card :-)

I see zero references to Chase in this article.

 

My account is still intact. I haven't reviewed anything on Amazon, but I'm glad they're cracking down on these bogus reviewers. You could actually rely on the reviews in the past, but I've noticed that is no longer the case.

Smart. :good: 5% categories are not forever so it's a good idea to have a backup for each of them.

 

Plus, an open line with a 25k-35k CL and zero AF is better than a closed one. Absolutely no downside to keeping it.

Reliable and unbiased reviews can be a key attribute of our online behemoth, sometimes run a url through an online tool for some relatively helpful f/b: https://www.fakespot.com/
