I think this topic comes up often on the internet. :smileylol:  But it's a good question, this card would be less attractive w/o this perk.

months ago a certain site "confirmed" they were shutting down the 5 points for amazon. Turns out it was "confirmed" by some CSR who had no idea how the transaction system works. Subsequent calls by said site revealed multiple CSR's with conflicting statements.

 

Lest we all forget (or maybe some are just young enough to not remember) Amazon was oringally incarnated as an online bookstore.
