Since Amazon is supposed to be online purchases, who really cares... Microsoft and Apple both have online stores to qualify.
But actually for the Amazon case, AMEX does count it as department store but is not eligible for "select department store" bonus in Blue Cash series - just a little information. Visa/MasterCard generally count it as bookstores (MCC = 5942), but sometimes it's possible to see Computer Network Services (MCC = 4816). Again just some extra information.
For Microsoft, if you mean an actual store just like Apple Store, then I don't think it's department store. They should rather be electronic stores like Best Buy.
For Apple, you may order online and pick up in-store so they still consider that as online purchase for you to qualify 5%.
