No Visacards are not being phased out in the UK Laurence. Amazon are currently negotiating with Visa re CC fees. They think them too high. This appears to me to be a negotiating ploy! What is interesting is that they are not proposing to stop accepting American Express payments. The fees changed by that organization are substantially higher!!!

No it isnt a scam Sandra. Just expect this to be resolved before the declared date. Amazon are in danger of cutting of an important source of sales and Visa would be losing a large slice of fee income. Compromise comes to mind. Mac
Amazon are not asking for your debit card details, but will accept Visa Debit. I have switched my default card to my Mastercard credit card, no problem. But as you say, it sounds like a case of who blinks first, a lot of money involved for both companies.
Visa are increasing their charges in the United Kingdom as they are no longer limited by the EU. The EU charges have remained unchanged. A lot of bank are changing their cards because of this to Visa debit.
