The acquisition of Whole Foods by Amazon has upped the ante for Amazon Prime Rewards Visa cardholders because they now earn 5% back when shopping at the Whole Foods Market, whether they are buying groceries, organic vegetables, body care products, or anything else.
The 5% back cardholders earn at Wholefoods when using their Amazon Rewards Visa card is in addition to the 5% they already get on all their purchases at Amazon.com, and the 2% back they earn when eating out, pumping gas and shopping at drugstores. All other purchases earn them 1% back.
“We are excited to launch the Amazon Rewards Visa Card in our stores, offering benefits to our customers on all of their purchases at Whole Foods Market,” said John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder, and CEO.
Amazon Rewards Visa Cardholders Earn More Too
On the other hand, cardholders who have the Amazon Rewards Visa card also get more rewards. They now earn 3% back when shopping at Whole Foods Market in addition to the 3% they earn when shopping on Amazon.
They also continue to earn 2% at purchases made at restaurants, drugstores and gas stations. They also earn 1% back on everything else.
Redeeming Rewards and Travel Benefits
Regardless of which card people have there is no limit to how many points they earn. Also, rewards do not expire, as long as the cardholder’s account is active. Rewards can be redeemed for merchandise, as well as cash back, travel and gift cards.
When traveling abroad there are no foreign transaction fees to wrangle with, and cardholders also get access to additional travel benefits, including:
- Travel and emergency assistance
- Lost luggage reimbursement
- Baggage delay insurance
- Travel accident insurance
Cardholders also get access to the Visa Signature Luxury Hotel Collection.
When it comes to fraud, the card includes zero fraud liability to protect cardholders, and there is no annual fee for either card.
Cardholders also get access to additional benefits to help them get through day to day issues, including:
- Roadside dispatch
- Auto rental collision damage waiver
- Purchase protection
