You may want to use a credit card if you buy expensive electronics etc. from Amazon.com since it could be easier to dispute transactions if you pay with a credit card instead of an Amazon gift card if required later. Amazon.com does have an extremely good customer service, with more benefits to the buyer than the seller.
