On 11/6/11 I was making a purchase on Amazon.com and during checkout I was offered a $30 credit if I applied and was approved for the Amazon Store Card from GE Financial (Note, this is not the Amazon.com Rewards Card from Chase, which I already have).
The application was fast and approved instantly, making my order and two small subsequent orders "free."
This is the easiest and fastest 30 bucks I ever made from a CC offer. Note that once approved for Amazon Store, Amazon switches your default payment method to the new card. I didn't want this and manually changed my payment method back to Amazon Rewards during checkout (There's a box there to check to reset your defaults to the most recent payment selection).
Other that some interest-free payment options, the Amazon Store card doesn't offer much, so I'll continue to use my Chase Amazon card.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).
*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.
