I just added gift card to my account and amazon has been charging all my most recent purchases to my gift card. No problem

No, it only uses cc. Gift card can't be used, trust me, I tried. There is another thread about this sole issue: "gift card won't let me"

My gift card works good. I did not add cc just gift card. Maybe your gift card is problem.

i put a gift card on my daughters and she only used $1 on it, but it still is asking for a credit card for the free apps. does that mean the remainder of the money on the gift card is gone?

I doubt it's gone. I put a $25 one on mine, it was a Visa gift card. What kind of card did you use?

I was told my 2 different Amazon help staff that you CANNOT charge apps to a Kindle gift card, only a credit card. For some reason only book purchases will come off the gift card. Strangely though, the 2nd man I chatted with for quite a while put $10 on my son's account for APP purchases....but I can't.

Then that game is not compatible for Kindle Fire. There's a place that says "devices compatible with this game", if you click it then you can see which Kindle devices are compatible.

Don't use kindle gift card, use a visa,Amer express or one like this.
