Yes, the Amazon Prime Credit Card is metal. It is also worth noting that this card is an upgraded version of the Amazon Credit Card for cardholders with a Prime membership. This card is also made out of metal. The Amazon Store Card, on the other hand, is a plastic credit card.
Having said that, you shouldn’t worry too much about what your credit card is made of. A credit card is just a tool for making purchases and what matters the most is its terms. Let’s go through Amazon Credit Card’s perks to help you make the right call.
Here’s what you get with the Amazon Credit Card:
A $50 Amazon.com Gift Card ($100 for Prime members) will instantly be loaded into your Amazon.com account upon the approval of your credit card application.
Earn 3 points for every $1 spent on Amazon.com, Amazon Fresh, Whole Foods Market and on Chase Travel purchases.
Earn 2 points for every $1 spent at gas stations, restaurants and on local transit and commuting, including rideshare. Earn 1 point for every $1 spent on all other purchases.
Redeem daily rewards at Amazon.com as soon as the next day. Or redeem at Chase.com for cash back, gift cards, or travel.
If you have an eligible Prime membership, you can link your Amazon.com Credit Card to earn 5 points for every $1 (equivalent to 5% cash back) on purchases made at Amazon.com, Amazon Fresh, Whole Foods Market and on Chase Travel purchases. Plus, get up to 10% back on rotating Amazon categories and products with a Prime card.
