Just saw this on Yahoo Finance. Considering most of my online shopping is on Amazon, 5% is a pretty slick deal. This is also another example of Amazon moving further across and up the commerce funnel.

@rrhoover it's a great card, I've had it for about a year at 3% and now 5% is a huge win. Earnings post to your Amazon account seamlessly and you can apply them at checkout like a payment method.

@noinput That's sounds great!
@noinput @rrhoover Is there a monthly cap on what you can make back?
@noinput @elilaipson Looks like there are no caps on any category.
I'm curious if the 5% back also applies to AWS bills? In the offer details it says "buying products and services with your card, in most cases, will count as a purchase." If so, this would be a nice way to save 5% on monthly infrastructure costs.

@ckalima that would be amazing!
@ckalima no, it's only for the Amazon store
@ckalima I've had the card for years now, and my $0.55 monthly AWS bills (not a big personal AWS user) have gotten the 3x treatment. It's probably safe to assume it'll start getting 5x now.
Protip: if you have the card already and are a prime member, you can upgrade your rewards within your Amazon account: http://amazon.com/wallet?ref_=ya... (select your card, and click "upgrade" or similar)

@tarungangwani looks like mine was automatically updated from Amazon Rewards to Amazon Prime Rewards. Well done.
@ggnall @tarungangwani same! I also noticed that my girlfriend's non-Prime rewards card is eligible to upgrade, BUT you can only have one 5% card attached to each Prime account.
@juantabone @tarungangwani listen to the ecom overlords: get married, combine cards, spend for your growing family on amazon forever. ๐Ÿ˜น
@tarungangwani mine upgraded automagically
@_jacksmith Yes, hearing that as well from folks. Nice, user-centered thing for them to do. Prime has to go down as one of the most important services ever created on the internet.
USA only sorry Canada, UK, France etc

@jamie_ross ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข Such a bummer, why not Canada, we're your neighbor.
@jamie_ross I'd be surprised if they didn't have plans to roll out the card in other major markets with regional card provider partners.
@jamie_ross I'm crying right now. I still tried :)
@jamie_ross This is the info I was looking for. Thanks for saving me the research.
I've used the Amazon Prime Rewards Card for a few years now - love it. Every few months it's nice use the accumulated points for free Amazon purchases ๐Ÿ˜Š And the new one is 5% instead of the 3%, plus it's metal ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

@nivo0o0 wait if it's metal that changes things

@nivo0o0 you had me at metal ๐Ÿ˜
@nivo0o0 why the fuck is it made of metal when it's only usable online on Amazon.com ? what a waste of money lol. the physical card is useless once you add it to your amazon.com account
@_jacksmith because it's a regular credit card that can be used anywhere............ (this is the only credit card I use)
