Amazon’s subscription service is a solid deal when you consider all the perks it offers buyers, on top of fast shipping for goods purchased on Amazon. Amazon Prime includes unlimited access to movies and TV shows, unlimited photo storage, Prime Music, and special access to books and magazines, and early access to Prime deals. If that’s not enough, then you should check out Amazon’s latest offering for Prime subscribers: A new credit card.
Amazon’s Prime credit card has been around for years, getting Amazon Prime subscribers 3% back on their Amazon purchases. If you shop a lot at Amazon, you’ll definitely get some of your money back that way.
But Amazon decided to upgrade that percentage to 5%. That means you’re going to get even more money back when you pay for Amazon goods with the new card.
As The Wall Street Journal reports, the new card is issued by JP Morgan Chase, and it’s a Visa card.
The card doesn’t have an annual fee or any foreign transaction fees. Of course, to get it, you’ll have to pay the yearly $99 fee for Amazon Prime. The card will also get you 2% back at restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores and 1% back on every other purchase.
If you’ve already got an Amazon Prime credit card, and you’re still a Amazon Prime member, then you’ll automatically be upgraded to Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, and you’ll receive a brand new metal card.
If you’re not a member, you can still apply for the card, but you’ll only get back 3% on Amazon.com purchases on top of all the other perks above.
