In order to have good Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card approval odds, you should start with at least a good credit score (i.e. 700+). Generally, the higher your credit score, the better your odds of approval are. However, your credit score is just one part of your creditworthiness. On its own, it does not guarantee approval. Chase Bank, which issues the Amazon Prime Rewards card, doesn’t publicly disclose specific approval requirements. But they will review such things as your income, employment status and total amount of debt. Other things that affect your odds of approval are your payment history, age of accounts and recent credit inquiries.
If you have less than good credit, your approval odds are better for the Amazon Store Card. You’ll only need a fair credit score (640+) 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 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.
A score of 640 or higher is the credit score needed for Amazon Store Card. Of course, the better your score is, the higer your approval odds. Keep in mind that they will also look at your income, past delinquencies (if any), credit utilization, employment status, etc.

The easiest unsecured credit cards to get generally work best for minor emergencies. You will only receive a small amount of spending power, after all.
Unsecured credit cards for people with bad credit also tend to be very expensive, charging lots of fees and high interest rates. So if you don’t need a small emergency loan, the best course of action is to improve your credit inexpensively with a secured card. Secured cards are cheaper than unsecured cards, build credit just as effectively, and offer the closest thing you’ll find to guaranteed approval.
