When the new Amazon credit card, via Chase Bank, was recently announced I knew it was something I’d want to apply for. This was especially true after I checked out all of the cards benefits and figured out that the card would basically pay for my annual $99 Prime membership every year. The credit card is officially called the Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card and here’s what you need to know.

Amazon Credit Card Review:

Here are some of the perks of this Amazon Prime Rewards credit card.

  • 5% Back at Amazon.com – If you have an eligible Prime membership you’ll score a sweet 5% back (via Reward Points) on all your Amazon purchases. Use your reward points to pay for part, or all, of your future Amazon purchases.
  • 3% Back on all Amazon orders if you don’t have Prime.
  • 2% Back at Restaurants, Gas Stations, and Drugstores – Not a huge amount but definitely significant, especially if you pay off your bill in full every month.
  • 1% Back Everywhere Else.
  • Free $50 Gift Card from Amazon – You’ll get this immediately after credit card approval.
  • No Annual Fee.
  • 15.24% – 23.24% APR – Your APR is based on your credit score.

Who’s Eligible for this Amazon Credit Card?

Unfortunately, not everyone is eligible for the 5% back on your Amazon purchases. Here’s what you need to know:

  • No Invited “Guests” – If you get Prime benefits via a family member who pays for an annual membership, you are NOT eligible for the 5% back on Amazon purchases. While you won’t get 5% back, you can still get 3% via the credit card.
  • Amazon Prime Fresh – Eligible for the 5% back on Amazon purchases.
  • Amazon Family – Eligible for the 5% back on Amazon purchases.
  • Amazon Prime Student – Eligible for the 5% back on Amazon purchases.
