Re: Best Rewards for Shopping at Amazon

For rewards, there is Citi Forward (now just for students) that gives 5x on Amazon (but need to redeem in certain ways to get max value) and by some reports, US Bank Cash Plus, which gives 5% on bookstores (if you choose that category) which is said to include Amazon.

Most active cards: Amex BC ($50K), Cap One QS ($33K) Fidelity Amex ($20K)
Others: CSP, Freedom, Chase Amazon, Cap One QS, Penfed Plat Rewards (x2), Citi TY Preferred, Citi Dividend, Citi AA Plat Select, Citi Forward, Amex BCE, Amalgamated Bank, Sallie Mae, Cash Plus

The Amazon Store Card (The CC backed by GE) has no rewards. The Chase-backed Amazon Visa gives rewards at 3% (points) per dollar on Amazon purchases.



|| Barclaycard Rewards Visa $5500 || AMEX BCE $2000 || Discover IT $3000 || Amazon Rewards Visa $1800 ||
|| Chase Freedom $2700 || CSP $5000 || Chase Marriott Premier $7500 || Sallie Mae MC $3800 ||

TRUE... If out for rewards only and no financing then you want Chase Amazon Visa.

Or, as I said above, Forward or Cash Plus, which give 5% compared to 3%!   And Sallie Mae is another 5% on Amazon up to $750 per month.   One of the cases where the branded card doesn't give the best benefits.

For Cash Plus?   Someone posted fairly early in April that it worked, and I didn't see replies saying that it didn't (whereas claims that "Cell phones" included all telecommunications were quickly debunked for example).   But not from personal experience as I didn't choose that category.   But for Forward, yes.

Thanks.  Interestingly, CashPlus counted my ATT bill, which is bundled with Dish Network.  ATT has DSL.  I have bookstores this quarter, but I haven't tried that cash plus.
