Like many online shopping sites, Amazon.com allows you to pay for purchases with gift cards as well as credit and debit cards.

However, Amazon-branded gift cards unfortunately can't be removed from your Amazon.com account once you've redeemed them.

Gift cards issued by companies such as Visa, Mastercard or Discover, on the other hand, can be removed in a similar fashion to credit or debit cards.

Here's how.
