Searched and found a thread about upgrading existing cards from 3% to 5% cash back but nothing about this new card from amazon. I saw it when I logged in as a banner on the front page.
link:
https://www.amazon.com/iss/credit...cardmember

5% cash back at amazon.com (with prime membership - 3% without prime)
2% cash back at restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores
1% cash back everywhere else
no annual fee
no foreign transaction fees
various insurance perks
purchase and warranty protections
complimentary 24/7 visa signature concierge
room upgrades and VIP status at premium properties in the Visa signature luxury hotel collection.


YMMV - some offers only 3% and varying gift cards. possibly need to be logged in as the primary account holder for 5% offer

I was automatically upgraded to 5% on my chase amazon card i had for years! Thanks Chase. Discover card and Chase Freedom will now be seldom used, as this Chase Amazon card offers all the perks of those 2 cards with 5% all the time at Amazon. Considering 90% of my shopping is done here, this is a nice deal! Smilie

Quote from The Kev Master
:
The Kev Master was offered only 3% but he'd rather take the 5% off that the store card offers.

For people that are eligible for either [prime holders] (I have both) the 5% back card is better than the 5% (statement credit) store specific card IMHO.

For one I'll take a Visa branded chase card over a symphony bank store card any day if for no reason other than it can be used at places other than Amazon.com. It's not always true but symphony bank typically vultures over people with lower credit scores hence why they deal a lot in store cards (i.e. not branded as visa, mastercard, amex, etc.)

I see the value in 5% statement credit, but 5% back in points can always be converted to a check or bank deposit and often the points hold more value when redeemed for travel or gift cards.

Again, this only matters if you have prime, otherwise you'd just be eligible for the 3% on the Visa card.

I see both of the cards.
The other requires Amazon Prime Subscription.

"possibly need to be logged in as the primary account holder for 5% offer"

I'm the secondary on our household's Prime account, and was offered the 5%/$70 GC.

After you apply and are approved for the card, the $70 GC is instantly added to your GC balance and Amazon makes your new card the default payment option for your account.

I too have this same question. I doubt it since its not Chase, but I'd like to be proven wrong.

You can't transfer any cash back earned on this card to travel partners. IIRC you can use their travel rewards system within your Chase account though. I don't see this changing but who knows given the fact that soon the Chase Business INK Cash card will transfer to the UR system and I didn't expect to see that happen.


Situations where alternatives are better than this 5% cash back card:
  1. In your first year with Discover IT card all cash back is doubled. The last few years you can usually get 1-2 quarters where it's easily possible to get the 5% category for Amazon which is doubled at cardmember years end.
  2. Points from any Freedom card can be transferred to partners and the UR system, assuming you have a premium card (INK, CSR)
  3. Buy Amazon gift cards with a Chase INK business card and get 5x UR. Can be done online within minutes or at any office supply store. Again, just depends on what you value UR points at.

With that said, I'm happy to see the wife's chase amazon card automatically converted to the 5% cash back. If you don't value UR points above 1:1 and just want to keep it simple then this is definitely the card to have linked up to your amazon account (RIP SallieMae).

Does anyone know how long we have to keep this card once it's activated? I got $70 bonus but 5% is given back as Amazon credit, which isn't as valuable as UR for me.

No foreign transaction fee + 2% cash back at restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores is a major plus for me. Already upgraded yay!

no foreign transaction fees on a no-annual fee card is a good deal!
