I heard about Amazon upping the Amazon Chase Visa card cash back from 3% to 5% back for many months now. It is only for Amazon Prime members, which I am and have been for over a while, so I keep expecting to get a new card automatically from Chase.

But it never happened. So today I sent a secure message to Chase customer service, and this was their reply:

Hello David,

Thank you for contacting Chase about your reward points.

I would like to inform you that you must sign up for an eligible Amazon membership and begin earning 5% Back on purchases at After having a paid Prime membership for 45 days, a new embedded metal Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature card will be mailed. Since you do not have a current Amazon Prime membership, you can learn more through the various Try Prime links on the homepage.

To verify whether your card account earns 3% or 5% Back on purchases, sign in to your account and follow these steps:

  1. Visit
  2. Go to the Manage Payment Options page under the Payment Methods section
  3. Expand the details of your Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card to see how much you are earning on purchases

If your Amazon Rewards Visa Signature card is earning 3% Back on purchases and you have an eligible Prime membership, you can learn how to update your account to earn 5% Back on purchases.

We appreciate your business and thank you for being a Chase customer.

Thank you,

Chase Email Servicing

I was about to reply back with a screen shot showing that I have been an Amazon Prime member for over a year now, but then I thought I poke around my Amazon account and see if I could request a new shiny "metal" card from there or something.

On I went to:

  1. My Account
  2. Then went to Your Amazon Wallet
  3. That's where I saw the message "This card could be earning 5% Back. Learn How".
  4. I then clicked on the Learn How link, which popped up a dialog box asking for my Chase Amazon Visa Signature credit card number
  5. I typed in the number, and voila, a message came up saying that the card is now earning 5% instead of the old 3%

Too bad I didn't know I had to do this earlier as I have made quite a few purchases and missed out on the 2% extra because I thought I needed to wait for a new card from Chase. But better late then never, and hopefully this helps those of you Amazon Prime members the same way!

BTW I was hoping I could do this as well for my Chase Amazon Business card- but alas, there was no option to upgrade that to 5%, so I suppose this offer is only for the Chase Amazon consumers cards.
