Starting Nov. 17 through Nov. 30, 2021, Amazon Prime members who apply and are approved for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card will instantly get a $200 Amazon gift card. Unlike many new credit card incentives, there's no spending requirements to meet. That’s $200 that you can use however you want with the retailer — from getting all your gift shopping done to buying some last-minute turkey day ingredients.

And non-Prime members are in for a bonus as well: New Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card holders who don’t have a Prime membership will receive a $100 Amazon gift card upon card approval.

In addition to the limited-time bonus, holders of the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card can also earn 10% back in rewards on select products from eligible gift guides through the retailer’s Prime Card Bonus offer. Eligible products include toys, electronics, kitchen appliances and more.

Both Chase-issued cards earn rewards at Amazon.com and Whole Foods Market:

  • The Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card earns 5% back at Amazon.com and Whole Foods Market; 2% back at restaurants, gas stations and drugstores and 1% back on all other purchases. The card charges an annual fee of $0 but requires a Prime membership, which costs $119 annually.

  • The Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card earns 3% back at Amazon.com and Whole Foods Market; 2% back at restaurants, gas stations and drugstores and 1% back on all other purchases. The card charges an annual fee of $0.
