Yes, the Amazon Prime Credit Card is metal. It is also worth noting that this card is an upgraded version of the Amazon.com Credit Card for cardholders with a Prime membership. This card is also made out of metal. The Amazon.com 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.com Credit Card’s perks to help you make the right call.
Here’s what you get with the Amazon.com 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 and Whole Foods Market, 2 points for every eligible $1 spent at restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores and 1 point for every other $1 spent.
- Redeem your points to pay at checkout on Amazon.com. Every 100 points = $1.00 towards your purchase. Pay for all or part of your purchase with points - there's no minimum.
- In addition to using your rewards at Amazon.com, you can also redeem for cash back, gift cards, and 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 and Whole Foods Market. Plus, get up to 10% back on rotating Amazon categories and products with a Prime card.
Keep in mind that you shouldn’t apply for the Amazon.com Credit Card just because it’s made of metal. Whether you should apply for the Amazon.com Credit Card depends on your spending habits and financial needs.

John Wittgap, I had to get a replacement card and tried to destroy my previous metal card. It can’t be put through a shredder, and large scissors couldn’t cut through it. A plastic card makes more sense.
