All Amazon Prime members in the U.S. can now receive rewards when they shop on Amazon.com using an Amazon payment method, as well as Prime Reload, a new feature that allows members to load funds to their Amazon balance using their checking account with a linked debit card.
According to a press release, Prime members who prefer to shop using debit cards can utilize Amazon Prime Reload. To reward them for their loyalty, Amazon guarantees that these customers will receive 2 percent of rewards when they transfer funds to their Amazon balance using their checking account with a linked debit card. Rewards are granted within minutes of loading funds on to their Amazon balance.
In addition, the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card offers Prime members 5 percent back on Amazon.com, 2 percent back on restaurants, gas stations and drugstores, and 1 percent back on all other purchases, awarded in the form of rewards points that can be redeemed on thousands of Amazon items, as well as travel and cash back through Chase.
The Amazon Prime Store Card offers Prime members 5 percent back on Amazon.com spending in the form of a statement credit.
