Chase Amazon Card - UPDATE: APPLIED AND APPROVED!

[ Edited ]

Maybe I'm mistaken .. but I was reading here that Amazon card is issued by GE .. right?

Is there another Amazon card that's issued by Chase? I could swear that I've read something about that on the Internet ! 

 

Also, what are the requirements for the card? You know .. score .. # of inquiries .. established history .. AAoA .. ?

I shop a lot at Amazon and I'm thinking to apply for the card.

Re: Amazon Store Card

The amazon card issued by GE is a store card only. The Chase version is a VISA. The GE card is easier to get. Chase you need at least 2 cc's reporting a year of positive history and no recent baddies.

Re: Amazon Store Card

How difficult it is to get approved for the Chase version?

I have the Freedom card with them.

Re: Amazon Store Card

I found out the camera I've been eyeing is available for 24 month financing, but only on the GE store card (after I apped for the Chase card earlier this week).

 

Depending on what and how you buy one might be better than the other.

Zync NPSL, BCP ($2000), Chase United ($2000) Chase Amazon ($1500), Chase Freedom ($3000), Discover More ($2000), Paypal Extras ($5000), Citi Forward ($2000), Orchard $2000, Amazon ($5000)

I have the Freedom and was turned down for the Chase Amazon with recon.  The reasons I was turned down for the Freedom in the first place, but approved on recon, go figure.  YMMV.

Re: Amazon Store Card

if denied for chase amazon, would they counteroffer the regular store card or would that be a separate application?
