Visa not welcome? From mid-January Amazon will no longer accept its cards

Who are the goodies and who are the baddies when it comes to Amazon’s row with Visa? Or are they both just baddies – a corporate Thanos vs Magneto with the poor consumer stuck in the middle brandishing a useless credit card?

Help! Where are the X-Men or the Avengers when you need them?

But first to the background. Amazon customers – including this one – have been emailed with warnings that their Visa credit cards will be no good from the middle of January 2022.
