Chase and Amazon have unveiled new benefits and features on the Amazon Visa credit card portfolio, including new art, card names, and, most importantly, more cash back rewards. Here are all the major changes to the Amazon Visa credit card portfolio.
Chase Makes Major Changes to Amazon Credit Cards
The Amazon personal credit cards from Chase have had a makeover. The formerly Amazon Rewards Visa and Amazon Prime Rewards Visa credit cards now have new names, art, and features to maximize cardmember value.
Through the newly renamed Prime Visa and Amazon Visa credit cards, cardmembers can now earn up to 5% back on purchases made through Chase Travel. Prime Visa cardmembers earn 5% back, and Amazon Visa cardmembers 3% back on travel purchases made through Chase’s new and enhanced travel booking platform. Prime Visa and Amazon Visa cardmembers also earn 2% back on local transit and commuting, including rideshares like Lyft and Uber.
These new benefits are on top of the cash back rewards Amazon credit cardholders already earn on select purchases. Prime Visa and Amazon Visa cardmembers earn cash back on Amazon.com and Whole Foods purchases (5% back and 3% back, respectively) and on restaurants, gas stations, and drugstore purchases (3% and 2% back, respectively). Both cards enjoy Visa Signature protections and benefits, including:
|Zero Fraud Liability||Cardholder Inquiry Services||Emergency Card Replacement||Luxury Hotel Collection||Extended Warranty Coverage|
|Roadside Dispatch||Lost/Stolen Card Reporting||ID Navigator from Norton||Travel & Emergency Assistance|
Here are how the two Amazon credit cards from Chase compare:
|Amazon Prime membership required?||Yes||No|

|Annual fee||No annual fee||No annual fee|
Daily Rewards Added
Both Chase Amazon credit cards also allow cardmembers can earn, view, and redeem rewards earned on their card daily rather than monthly, with the introduction of daily rewards. The addition of this new reward is a great way to quickly access points during busy periods – like the holiday season – where instant rewards can make (or break) a shopping trip’s budget.
“Even More Value. Faster”
“The addition of travel-based earn opportunities on the cards and ability to now redeem rewards points earned on purchases as soon as the next day means we’re providing even more value to our cardmembers faster,” said William Mahoney, General Manager of Amazon Visa cards at Chase in a press release accompanying the news.
“We’re excited to offer cardmembers—whether Prime members or not—even more ways to earn rewards for their Amazon purchases and everyday activities,” added Tyler Aldrich, director of Amazon Payment Products. “We’re committed to providing customers value during their shopping experience, and we look forward to introducing more ways for customers to save and earn on Amazon.”
