It appears that Amazon's intention to stop accepting Visa credit cards has been shelved. According to an email from Amazon I've just received:
The expected change regarding the use of Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk will no longer take place on January 19. We are working closely with Visa on a potential solution that will enable customers to continue using their Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk. 

Should we make any changes related to Visa credit cards, we will give you advance notice. Until then, you can continue to use Visa credit cards, debit cards, Mastercard, American Express, and Eurocard as you do today.
Good job I managed to bag the £20 voucher for adding a MasterCard credit card to my Amazon account back in November :)

Looks like Visa have formally caved in. Email received from Amazon this morning:
We’ve recently reached a global agreement with Visa that allows all customers to continue using their Visa credit cards in our stores. As a result, we will not move forward with our previous plans to stop accepting UK issued Visa credit cards.
