4.0 out of 5 stars It's okay, but beware of this... November 17, 2012
By Mavis
I've had this card for 14 months and haven't encountered any issues. I'm a die-hard Amazon shopper, so I thought with 3 points for Amazon.com purchases, this is the card for me. Then I learned...

The 3 points only applies to Amazon.com purchases (plus a few other categories on Amazon.com, see below). Because so much of the merchandise on Amazon's site is not from "Amazon.com", but from affiliated and third party sellers, you may find that many of your purchases made on Amazon.com aren't really "Amazon.com" and therefore don't actually qualify for the 3 points. For instance, if you see items sold by Amazon Marketplace (which is common), beware, you'll just receive 1 point per dollar spent. I was so disappointed because the fine print (pasted below) isn't explicit about this, so I feel a little misled.

One plus about this card is that you can redeem the points for statement credits (example: 5,000 points = $50 statement credit), which is a nice option if you don't want gift cards or travel-related rewards.

In case you're interested, here's the fine print:

"You will earn 3 points for each $1 of eligible net purchases made at Amazon.com (including digital downloads, Amazon.com Gift Cards, Amazon Fresh orders and Amazon Prime subscription). Purchases made at Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.ca, or any other website operated by Amazon.com, its affiliates and subsidiaries are not eligible for 3 points."

Update (October 2013): Chase revised the language on the agreement to reflect the 3 points just as expected, without all those exclusions. Thanks Chase and Amazon!

Seems to be a lot of griping from people who don't understand how to read the fine print and use common sense. This is basically a store card/loyalty card Visa like many retailers offer. That being said, the interest rates are always high on these types of cards. Deal with it. Don't carry a balance. "Instant" credit approval is assumed if there is nothing in your account that needs reviewing. If you need the $30/$50 immediately to make your purchase, maybe you should rethink what you are buying. If you're getting this card, I'll bet you'll buy something from Amazon again and be able to use that gift card before long anyway...

Card Pros:
-1 point=$1 spent. $1 spent at amazon gives 3 points (3%). $1 spent elsewhere gives 1 point (1%). For me, I like it simple, no point-to-dollar conversions like the citi card.
-Card is by Chase. May be a pro/con here, but if you already have Chase accounts, this card will show up after a couple weeks in your chase.com online account. Easy to manage and make payments straight from your checking account.
-No annual fee.
-Redeem points at any time for anything sold by Amazon. Yes there is fine print, marketplace purchases can't be funded with points, neither can subscribe and save. Boo hoo. Read the terms and you won't have to post 1 star reviews whining about what's explained in the fine print you didn't bother reading before handing over all your personal information. :)

Card Cons:
-Interest rate is high. As stated above, these types of cards always have high rates. My condolences if you are under the assumption that a 13%+ rate is a good rate.

Bottom line- read the card's terms and conditions before applying, understand the rewards and how to use them, pay your bills on time, and you'll wind up with some nice rewards points to use on something fun from Amazon.

I had the Amazon Rewards card from Chase years ago, from about 2005 to 2007. I was one of the very first Amazon Prime members. I used this card a LOT, loved getting the 3% back, and I never kept a balance on it. Then one day, Chase informed me that they would begin charging interest from the date of purchase rather than from the end of the statement cycle. In other words, they would be treating purchases as if they were a cash advance in terms of when interest applied. Mind you, I NEVER kept a balance on the card. I called someone at Chase in disbelief, saying, "It looks like you're charging me interest from the date of sale, unlike every other card on the planet." The customer service person simply said yes, that was true (no attempt to keep me). I immediately canceled.

I spent a lot with Amazon, apparently got too much in rewards (from Chase's perspective), and paid off my balance in full every month--so I guess Chase just wasn't making enough money. I noticed the $50 off the HDX promotion today, and I checked to see whether Amazon still sullied their reputation by associating with Chase. When I saw that they did, I had to write this review. Chase, you should be ashamed. I kept up my end of the deal, but I suppose you weren't making enough money on the fees you charge Amazon alone, so you changed the rules on me to try to squeeze out a few bucks. To this day, I will not consider a Chase card or Chase banking services.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deceptive practice July 10, 2013
By ecbot
My wife had this card and for reasons not germane to this review, had been carrying a balance. When she managed to sign up several clients in quick succession in her business, we decided to pay off this card and close the account. She paid off the entire balance nine days before the payment due date. In the Terms and Conditions, in a section titled, "How to Avoid Paying Interest on Purchases", it clearly states, "We will not charge you periodic interest on purchases if you pay your entire balance by the due date each month." Yet when a new statement was posted a few weeks later, interest on purchases was being charged to the account, contrary to the Terms and Conditions statement.

We prepared a document with cut/pastes from the Terms and Conditions and the current and previous statements and called Chase two days later to dispute the interest charges. As soon as we questioned the charges, without even getting a chance to cover the points in our prepared document, we were told that since she has been a customer in good standing, they were going to wipe the charges off the account and complete the closing of the account.

Credit card companies very rarely rescind charges that are legitimately owed to them. Obviously I can't prove intent but I'm VERY suspicious that these charges were applied with the idea that less attentive people will simply pay them. As soon as it appears to them that you've actually read the Terms and Conditions, they appear gracious by wiping out the charges.

Beware.

Credit approval?
Funny, I just received an approval email today, after 6 weeks of waiting!! Even funnier is that I wrote a post a couple weeks ago with Amazon's response which had the Chase phone # and it says Amazon deleted it.

Am I able to earn points on Amazon Smile?
I say yes. I checked my Visa statement from last month and I only shop on amazon smile with my Chase Amazon Visa. The statement details the rewards earned in each category. I had no 1% rewards, only 3% rewards from Amazon.

Elizabeth Weber when you dial 1888-247-4080 which is shown on the back of your credit card you will get a voice mail asking you to pust an assortment of buttons which sometimes do not take you to a real human person. so DIAL 0 (zero) and a live real person will assist.
