If you're in the market for a new Visa credit card, there's a good option available to you from Amazon.ca. The Amazon.ca Rewards Visa Card from Chase has no annual fee, cash back, a $20 sign up bonus redeemable on Amazon.ca, and more. Here are the details:

  • $20 Amazon.ca Gift Certificate will be instantly loaded into your Amazon.ca account upon approval
  • No Foreign Currency Transaction Fees: Use your card when shopping outside of Canada and pay no foreign conversion fees
  • No Annual Fee
  • Earn 2 points per $1 spent at Amazon.ca
  • Earn 1 point per $1 spent everywhere else your card is accepted
  • Every 2,000 points earned are automatically redeemed for cash back as a $20 statement credit.
  • 19.99% annual interest rate for purchases and cash advances

If, like us, you're curious about the "no foreign currency transaction fees" point, here's the official explanation -- "Foreign currency transactions are converted at the exchange rate set by Visa International, without additional surcharges." This is a great perk! For most other credit cards you would end up paying an additional 2.5% fee, so the savings could be significant if you make a lot of US dollar transactions.

The rewards are pretty solid if you do a lot of shopping at Amazon.ca. When you take into account the up front $20 bonus, zero annual fee, and the variety of consumer goods Amazon.ca sells (which would qualify for 2% cash back), this is pretty compelling. We think the cash back being automatically applied as statement credits also makes things a lot simpler.

All in all, we're happy to see more competitive Visa credit cards made available to Canadians!

    • I have been using this with my mbna card for a while now.
      For gas and grocery I use my mbna for the 2%.

      For all other stuff, I use my Amazon Visa, There's a big advantage that hasn't been mentioned above.
      unlike mbna ,there's no limit on how many points you earn.

    • I understand it is good for travel. However, how is it good for everyday shopping except amazon.ca? How about amazon.com?

    • Do you get the 2% Cash Back at Amazon.com?
      No you won't get 2% cach back at amazon.com which is not desirable. You have to apply for a credit card from amazon.com to get 2%.

    • One catch: Chase Bank, which runs the amazon.ca credit card does not allow customers to setup preauthorized payments. Very inconvenient to log on to their site to pay balance. Besides that it's a great card. I use it when travelling. Save 2.5% on every foreign purchase!
