succumbing to peer pressure

Um...why does Amazon need my social security number before I can claim a prize in their contest??
(b) required to submit his/her social security number or tax payer ID number to us in order to claim the prize.

I thought I read something about a voluntary option to register for a non-SSN taypayer ID, but now that I look I only see the taxpayer ID available for people who are not otherwise eligible to have a SSN. In any event, it looks legit, and is just the same as your job asking for it (or perhaps more akin to a casino asking for it if you win a prize over a certain amount - which they would).
