There is another way to get Prime, though. Do you know anyone with it? If so, they can add you as a guest to their account, and you can get the benefits of the subscription.



someone told me he got $70 offer on Amazon.com

if I were to pick between $150 and Amazon Prime Membership on BCE, I would pick $150

When AMEX sent the BCE mail offers, there were: a) Spend $500 (or might be $750 -- cannot remember clearly) and get $150 back b) Spend $1000 and get $250 back. No Amazon Prime in the mail offer.
When they offered Amazon Prime at that time I remember it was with $50 statement credit.

It kind of hit me with a "blah" rather than a bang. There are a number of cards out there that do better than that so you might as well just get the IT and get 5% rotating.


1K a quarter is awful.

When I opened AMEX BCE, the deal was spend $1K in three months, get $100 back. They lifted it to $150 back around the Christmas holidays. Chase Freedom did the same thing -- something like $200 back.

If you happen to be a student, there is a $36 student version of Amazon Prime, making AMEX's Prime offer a moot point.
