The gift card will be used first for any Amazon purchases.

It isn't for me, it is asking for a default payment method.

Are you sure it's not just asking you to confirm what the default payment method is? What type of purchase is this, digital content, apps?

The gift card has to be applied to the account but you also have to have a credit card registered. The credit card acts as proof of residence.

gift cards don't work for preorders, maybe that's the case?

Can it ever not be this way?

Sure. There are lots of ways it can be different from how it is now (or how it was 2 1/2 years ago).

That's the way Amazon wants it, so probably not.

My preorders all come out of my gift card balance when the book is released. However, Amazon has no way of knowing if you will still have a gift card balance in the future so they require a credit card, just in case.
