Re: Amazon Prime Visa Card

For a big Amazon shopper, seems like this card is worth it to get, even with a poor signup bonus ($70). The Amazon Prime Visa gives 5% CB on Amazon (as well as 5%CB at WholeFoods as announced today). Besides for counting against Chase 5/24 and potentially preventing me from gaining other signup bonuses, from a strictly usage point of view, is there a better card to use on Amazon?

Thanks so much!

I hadn't heard that they added it to Whole Foods.  That's huge for just a family that wants to shop (you know, normal people not us).

Albertsons bought Rite Aid today.  I really expected Amazon to buy them.

You are getting better return, and if you use Amazon/while foods enough that you'd get the Amazon card for it, then it may be worth it.
I'll tell you later

WF was added as 5% this week.

It comes down to what you value more -  5UR's or $0.05.

Not really what you value more, rather how much more you value UR.

Some people redeem URs for statement credits @ $0.01 in which case a UR would not have a greater value.  In that instance, going the IP/IC to GC to AMZ/WF route wouldn't be as lucrative and would only be advisable if you had excess capacity on an IP/IC and didn't want a new account hit, INQ etc

Well someone that brings comfortability into a discussion very well might be one of them :D  In all reality lots of people just redeem URs for statement credits being happy with 5% cash back on utilities and office supplies.

Chase Ink Cash to buy Amazon and Whole Foods GCs.
My online account shows that I still get 5X at office supply stores on my Ink preferred. Has this changed for new cards? Seems a bit strange that the no-fee Ink Cash has a higher reward rate than the paid card....?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
