Amazon Prime Day starts today, but yesterday some Amazon credit card holders got a nice treat from the online retailer. Amazon is offering up to 25% cash back on almost 3,400 products across several categories through Oct. 18.
- Eligible Amazon credit card holders can earn up to 25% back on select products from Oct. 12 through Oct. 18.
- You qualify if you have the Amazon Prime Store Card or the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card.
- Eligible cardholders will get up to 20% cash back in addition to the 5% back they already earn with their Prime credit cards.
- Shoppers can choose from hundreds of eligible items across a long list of categories.
The Amazon Prime Credit Card Promotion Explained
Amazon Prime credit card holders already earn an impressive 5% cash back at Amazon.com and Whole Foods Market. But to mark this year’s Prime Day, the online retail giant is running a promotion where eligible cardholders can get an additional 5%, 10%, 15%, or even 20% back on select items.
There are thousands of eligible items across multiple popular categories, including:
- Ring products
- AmazonBasics kitchenware
- Print magazines
- Baby furniture
- Home and kitchen
Amazon has created this promotional page with a list of eligible products. If you qualify, you don’t need to register to take advantage of the promotion, but you do need to use your Amazon Prime credit card to complete the transaction.
The offer is good while supplies last during the promotional period, and once you make an eligible purchase and the transaction posts, the additional cash back is supposed to post to your account within a week.
How Do I Know if I Qualify?
You’re eligible for the promotion if you have the Amazon Prime Store Card or the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card. These cards are reserved for eligible Prime members only. If you have the Amazon Store Card, Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card, or either of the American Express Amazon business credit cards—but no Prime membership—you don’t qualify.
However, if you join Amazon Prime, you may get upgraded immediately and be able to take advantage of these deals.
