Amazon Rewards Visa

Postby Carmy3 » Fri Jan 16, 2015 11:22 am

I applied for the amazon rewards visa card and they gave me a 70 dollar giftcard. I didnt agree to the terms so I asked them to cancel the card. The 70 dollar giftcard has been attached to my account for almost a month and I ask amazon to remove it because I cancelled the account. Amazon said they cant remove it so I get to keep it. Nice. I kind of still dont trust it, so I'm give it 2 months before I use it.

I don't quite understand. You didn't like the APR or credit limit that Chase gave you, so you cancelled the credit card right away without using it?

$70 doesn't seem worth the AAoA reduction - although you have plenty of other cards to minimize the effect.

You should have kept the card open for a while and consolidate the limit of what you got there to your freedom. Just my two cents.
