easy to apply surprised by result
Helpful to 28 out of 29 people

I am working hard to build up my credit again after my college years destroyed it, and am very careful to not apply for cards I don't think I'll get, as I try to keep my inquiries to a minimum (as that is currently one of the best things about my score). As I am preparing for my destination wedding, however, I am looking to cut corners, save money, and have access to additional funds just in case we want to splurge a little bit. The offer for a $50 gift card sold me, and as I am a frequent Amazon shopper, the 3% back on purchases is a great incentive. 

Upon submitting application, I got the old - we cannot immediately approve your app, we are processing your request, we will contact you soon, etc. I thought for sure this meant I was denied - I've been there.

To my surprise, I checked my email not 15 minutes later to find I had been approved with a $1000 limit and the $50 gift card had been added to my account. For reference, my CK score is 625.

No e-bill
Helpful to 6 out of 10 people

I was informed by Chase that they don not offer e-bills to other banks.  This makes paying your Amazon card a real pain.

Looking Forward to Rewards

07May2015. Made my first purchase from Amazon.com. True story, I went to elementary school with Jeff Bezos.  Very proud of his success. Well, Jeff, you got my two cents to add to your billions!  Anyway, added a tablet to my cart and decided to apply for the Amazon.com Rewards VISA  pay for my purchase. Clicked the link, submitted, $5000 limit plus the $60 gift card.  Used the gift card on first purchase.  CK scores at time of application, 716 TU and 681 EQ. Since I'm a Chase AARP VISA member I was able to view my new card's activity by logging on to my current account. One bad note:  22.9% APR.  Will definitely pay as I go. Good luck.

Stable workhorse

Appled as my first card when I was 20 or 21 with a very basic credit score. Initial CL of $1200 grew to $2000 over one year or so. Customer service is hit or miss; don't miss a payment by even a few hours or your account will be bumped up to the max APR.

Easy application process, stable card

This was my first credit card, I applied when I was 20 or 21 with a TU somewhere around the mid 600s. CL was initially $1200 but automatically grew to $2000 after a year or so.

Be careful about missed payments. Not the serious, 30-plus-day-late kind, but the couple-hours-past-the-deadline kind. If you forget to pay exactly before the payment date and pay even a couple hours after, you'll be dinged with the max APR. That happened to me but I don't carry a balance so it doesn't matter.

Customer service is hit or miss. You'll generally get a representative in the US. Just keep calling back if you don't hear what you want to hear.

Excellent card; has served me well
Helpful to 2 out of 3 people

I have had this card for nine years now and I have zero complaints. I usually rack up somewhere between $20-$50 per month in points, so I end up getting a lot of free stuff from Amazon. I pretty much live off of this card, which is why I've made so much money on it. You can redeem any amount of points at any time during checkout - if you want to redeem $5.21, that's okay. If you want to redeem $200, that's okay too. New points are not available immediately; only after the statement date, but I hear that's pretty typical. I don't generally carry a balance. I have probably made thousands of dollars on this card over the years and have paid less than $30 in interest, so it's been very good to me.

I want to say I started somewhere around a $2k-$3k limit for this card since it was my first real credit card other than a card of my parents' that I was an authorized user on, and my credit limit is now $9,900. I have never asked Chase for an increase; they have just automatically given them to me. I have no complaints. I just got a Freedom card so I can get more effective rewards, so my usage on this one will decrease a bit, but I will definitely keep this one and use it for years to come.

A Curious And Fast Approval
Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

I haven't had a credit history for around seven years now. My last credit history was really bad. I had delinquent accounts and a very low credit score of below 540. I signed up with CreditKarma a few months ago, and they showed my credit score as being 710. That was a score from around two years ago, however, since it was the last open account I had which was a Capital One credit card which was shown to have a good payment history. A month ago or so, CreditKarma changed it's webpage and I now have a summary saying that I have a thin file which meant that I had no available credit history in order to pull up a credit score. I needed to build credit since I had none for that lengthy span of time, and was applying for different cards. I was shopping on Amazon and they offered the Amazon Store card which I applied for and got rejected. The next card that came up was the Amazon Chase Rewards Visa, and I decided to apply too, even though I was definitely expecting to get rejected as well. I entered my information and pressed the submit button. Instantly, I was approved for a credit limit of 3,500 and a 70 Amazon gift card was auomatically applied to my account. I looked at it curiously, thinking it must've been a mistake since I had a thin file, virtually no credit history for the past 7 years, and I had a very hard time getting approved for any kind of credit card. Well, I got the confirmation email, then an email from Chase welcoming me and telling me that I'd receive my card in about two weeks. I received my Amazon Rewards Visa today, approximately 8 days later. I enrolled online, made a purchase of 56.95, scheduled a payment for two days later in that amount. I haven't had any problems and I don't expect to have any problems. I hope that by having this card, I'd be able to rebuild my credit history. Chase had me at an acquisition risk score of 749 and my Rewards card has an APR of 19.24%. I have to thank Chase for allowing me the ability to rebuild my credit as with a thin file and no credit history, I was likely to have been denied over and over again with a long process to building credit history. Thanks Chase Amazon Rewards Visa.

Application & Approval Fast & Easy
Helpful to 2 out of 2 people

I'm very adverse to credit cards. We needed to purchase a new laptop, and although we had the cash, I had seen Amazon offering $70 in credit for their Chase credit card. I thought it was worth it, even though it shortened my credit history length with a new account. The application took just a minute or two. I was able to add an authorized user, but no SSN attached, so I'll have to change that later. 

I was instantly approved for $5k with a credit score in the low 700s. The APR is reasonable as well. The $70 was immediately added to my account and I could use the card immediately on my account as well. 

The physical card is supposed to come in two weeks, but I was sent an email immediately with details. 

I'm exceptionally happy with the process and limit. I can't wait to get rewards for items I always purchase from Amazon, anyway.

Great for Amazon shoppers
Helpful to 2 out of 2 people

I had soent the better part of the past five years rebuilding my credit history and my scores seem to rise slowly (TU:641; EXP; 671) but decided to give it a shot as i did not have any inquiries on my reports. Got the standard "not enough information" response but within the evening I had received an email approving me for $1000. I frequent Amazon alot so the 3x adds up fast. For sure recommend this for anyone who shops there alot. The giftcard doesn't hurt either.

Great card but hard to increase limit
Helpful to 2 out of 2 people

I've had about a year. Got approved for a 500 limit with a score in the mid 6s. My score has gone up a lot since then but I have been denied for requesting an increase after a year. I usually pay off the balance in full each month. I tend to max it out. Even if I have cash, I like to use this card for the reward points. They have so many good options. They report in the middle of every month.

Reconsidertaion sucess
Helpful to 2 out of 2 people

I applied for this card thinking I would get denied . Which after I hit the submit button I did . Credit karama states I have a 686 and a 646 with EQX. So a little back ground have 6 new open accounts a few baddies like one collection with a medical bill and two charge offs from Wells Fargo which was about 4 years ago. I have built my credit back up with a few store cards and regular cards one secured card with a year history , so I called up chase the reconsederation number and gave my reason why I need to get approved , after the fourth call I was approved for a $500 limit which is good considering my past , the rep approved based of my rebuild relationship and how far a came she was pleased to hep me out . I do have two accounts with them which I mentioned im not to sure if that helped , I'd would like to believe so !
