Amazon - can you stop it defaulting to gift card as the payment method?

Posted 1st Sep 2021
In my Amazon payments setting I have one of my credit cards set as the default payment method but whenever I buy anything on Amazon it instead always defaults to using my gift voucher balance as the payment option, with credit card only kicking in if I'm buying something worth more than the gift card balance. If I want to pay be credit card only I have to manually change the payment option every time.

Is there any way to stop Amazon doing this, so it only attempts to take a gift card balance if I specifically select the option at the payment screen?
