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....?
To answer the second part, it has different earning categories, like the Plat costs $550 yet doesn't ears 6% in groceries like the $95 BP does.

10% back at whole foods up to $400.

Can someone who has been banned from Chase get this card? Also is there any difference between the other amazon prime cards?

The Synchrony Bank Amazon Prime card is a store card.  The Chase Amazon Prime Card is a Visa.  The 10% back at Whole Foods during Prime Day is specifically linked to the Visa product.

is there a logic to get the synchrony card instead of the chase one so as 'not to use up a chase slot'?
(or is that an amex concept)?

Definitely is logic, if you'll be using the card a lot/churning CL, that may get chase nervous.
And it will effect the overall credit you have with Chase. Besides IMO it's always best to keep as much as you can away from Chase.
Just be warned that Synchrony isn't known for high CLs.

I spend alot on Amazon but buying large amounts of GC in advance at office supply stores seems impractical for me. Aside from buying GC with an Ink, does any other card come close to 5% at Amazon?

Can I convert an existing Chase card to an Amazon to avoid it counting for 5/24?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Amazon card does not count towards 5/24

I think you mean that you can get it past 5/24.
It likely does count though (unless you get the Amex biz)

a preliminary search seems to indicate that a CL increase can be requested pretty quickly/easily.
anyone have any experience with this?

I have the Chase ink business. I spend over 10k on amazon a year.. Should I get one of the Amazon cards? Which one is better?
Or should I just get an Chase Ink cash? If yes, do I downgrade from my ink Business or should I have both Ink business preffered and ink cash. Just got the Ink preffered 4-5 months ago

10k spent on amazon using the Amazon credit card will get you $500 cash back to be used towards any amazon purchase. IINM the only way to maximize your Amazon spending using the ink cards would be to buy Amazon GCs at an office supply store which would get you 5 ppd which is also roughly $500 with of UR points, depending on how you redeem them.

So I guess it boils down to, would you rather have $500 on your Amazon account or $500 worth of UR points...
