Branded cc's are they prime cc's

Are my new cards considered prime cards? In particular I'm referring to my AMEX Delta card and my Chase Amazon visa.

I'd say so. Pretty much any cc from chase or amex is prime imo. The only exception to this is the slate card - although I can see how some people would disagree and consider that prime as well.

Those are referred to as  Co-Branded.    One brand being the network, VISA or AMEX and the other brand being the merchant (Delta or Amazon).

 

Prime does not really depend on whether co-branded or not.     Based on a long thread that ran over the last holiday.    There is no consensus on what is prime?
