Amazon CC Instant $50 Off Promo

Postby swipe_masta » Sat Jun 29, 2013 12:56 pm

This promo is like Bigfoot. I was shopping on Amazon and saw the banner for the cc, nothing new. But then instead of the regular $30 off, it was $50 and the card was white (the Visa with $30 off promo is blue and just the store card is silver). Has anyone seen this? I saved my shopping cart and closed out, but now I can't find that promo anymore! By no means is the Amazon cc a stellar card and I fully plan to cancel it as soon as I get it, but I want that $$.

It's actually a decent card if you don't have a rotating category in gas or restaurants. It's also decent if you don't have a card with 2 or 3% on gas/restaurants like the BCE or BCP. I tend to pay mine in full because of the high APR. It comes in a Visa signature version with a 14.74% APR, which isn't horrible for a rewards card.

Also, I got the 7-10 days notice when I applied and when I was approved I got a $60 gift card credited to my Amazon account.

I got the $50 promo off when I bought a TV from Amazon several months ago. My card is blue. It's the Visa Signature version, so I'm not sure if that's the difference between the $30 or $50 promo or not. I don't even use the card anymore because shortly after I got the Sallie Mae Mastercard (it's from Barclays) and it gives 5% for Gas/Groceries up to $250 per statement (just enough for me, rarely do I go over) and 5% on "bookstores" up to $750 per statement. Amazon purchases qualify as a bookstore (for now at least). I'm not sure if the $50 was worth the extra account anymore.
