Not everyone owns a credit card, nor is everybody okay with linking their bank accounts to an e-commerce site. So this kind of service seems favorable and more convenient for these types of shoppers. That’s probably why Amazon decided to expand the service to nearly 8,000 7-Eleven branches nationwide!
Before coming to 7-Eleven, Amazon Cash was already available in CVS, Speedway, Kum & Go, D&W Fresh Market, Sheetz, Family Fare Supermarkets and VG’s Grocery.
“7-Eleven constantly updates and introduces new forms of payments to respond to continued shifts in customer preferences, lifestyles, and adoption of new technologies,” said Tony Stapleton, 7-Eleven senior product director in a statement.
So how will this work?
To use Amazon Cash at any 7-Eleven store, just present the personalized barcode found on your Amazon app to the cashier and pay whichever denomination you prefer to load your account – anywhere between $15 to $500, with no fees or service charge required.
Once your transaction is completed, you will receive a receipt and a confirmation on your email or smartphone, then you can immediately start shopping – easy!
Try Amazon Cash for the first time and get a chance to earn a $5 Amazon Credit just by adding at least $25 to your Amazon Balance. This limited time offer expires on December 31, 2017!
