What is the best credit card for shopping on Amazon.com?

Answered on

There are many options in addition to the Amazon Rewards Visa card for shopping at Amazon. Although the Amazon card rewards are competitive, earning 3% back on Amazon purchases, 2% back at restaurants, gas stations and drugstores, and 1% on other purchases, the sign-up incentive leaves something to be desired. The card only offers a $50 Amazon.com gift card upon approval. There are several cards that will give you $100 or more in the form of cash back or a digital gift card to be used at Amazon.com. For example, with the Discover it® – Cashback Match™ you can turn $150 into $300. All you need to do is to get the card and use it for shopping to earn 1% cash back on all purchases and up to 5% cash back in rotating categories (including Amazon.com). Note that you need to activate 5% cash back rewards to be able to earn additional cash back in rotating categories. Category earnings are capped to $1,500 in spendings and you will continue earning 1% cash back when you exceed the cap. All your first-year earnings will be matched at the end of your first year (provided you are a new cardmember). So, basically you can maximize your spendings to get a much as you can for the first year.
