Any aggravation with the Amazom Prime Store Card?

It's tempting for interest free financing on some big ticket items on the wish list, but it looks like there might be some draconian fine print. Any experiences?

We just use it to shop on Amazon and at Whole Foods, for that sweet 5% back. Paid off every month, and we’ve had no problems

Its unclear to me if you're talking about the Amazon store card which can only be used at amazon and gives 5% back. I've been using it for years and I've been quite happy since 5% back is pretty significant.

Additionally, there's the amazon credit card which is a normal credit card with amazon branding. I think you get 5% back when used at whole foods. Can't use the store card at whole foods.

I have and use both.

I had the Store Card (from Synchrony Bank) which gives 5% back at Amazon, but IIRC only as points.

When I got the Amazon Credit card (from chase) which also gives 5% back and can be use at Whole Foods (also 5% back) and anywhere else like a Regular CC (but probably only 1% back,. not sure), I closed the Store Card.

There is no reason to get the Store card, get the Amazon/Chase card, unless you hate Chase (and I can't blame you if you do)

Strangely enough, got turned down for the Chase version.

I am a bit old school when it comes to credit card bills. Although I specified hard copy bills it took 4 cycles of billing to get it to happen. No emailed bills either.

Several late fees and finance charges resulted and they didn’t care or try to find out why. Not an Amazon problem but it started out very rocky.

All good now.

We've been getting the 5% back from the Amazon Prime card for some years. I tend to let that accumulate and then spend it down when it gets to $100 or so (right now it's $123.16). It is a bit disconcerting to see how often we end up with that much credit, meaning we've spent yet another $2000 at Amazon!

I do have the Amazon Prime Visa. I did the store card briefly but discontinued it. I did not like that reward points were applied to my bill monthly and I had no choice over that. I prefer the reward points to accumulate like the do on the Amazon Visa as I use them to feel like I'm treating myself from time to time.

Plus, once I realized it was Synchrony i wanted out. i had not too positive experiences with them in the past though I can't recall the details. I just now avoid them.

No problems here after many years of use. I pay in full, no balance.
