A good way to shop at Amazon is with gift cards. You can charge up your
account to a certain baseline (e.g. 100 bucks) and then shop as you
wish, with no trouble of cc frauds and all this crap. Amazon has no
banking info on you but still it is really easy to manage. If you buy a
bigger item, you just go to the store, get a few of the 100 buck gift
cards, type the code in in no time (even faster than your cc card
number) and it's all good.
If you send an item back because you didn't like it, Amazon will
automatically put the credit back on your gift card balance.
