You cannot pre-qualify for an Amazon Credit Card. Neither the Amazon Visa Credit Card nor the Amazon Store Card offers pre-qualification.
Chase issues the Amazon Visa Credit Card. Chase is known for pre-approving applicants who have at least good credit. And for many Chase cards, they will make the first move by mailing you an invitation to apply. However, in the case of the Amazon Credit Card, you will need to submit an actual application to find out if you qualify for the card.

Other things that affect your odds of approval are your payment history, age of accounts and recent credit inquiries.… read full answer
If you have less than good credit, your approval odds are better for the Amazon.com Store Card. You’ll only need a fair credit score to have a reasonable shot at getting the card. The tradeoff is that unlike the Visa Signature card, which you can use anywhere Visa cards are accepted, the Amazon.com Store Card is limited to purchases on Amazon.com and at retailers that accept Amazon Pay. And you’ll only get rewards from the store card if you’re a Prime member, unlike the Visa.
