get this deal

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?

      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!

    • Chase does not offer online statements with this card. All bills are sent via Canada Post, which is a pain if you're travelling and aren't home to get it. No email alert when the bill is posted, either. So watch your online account regularly so you don't miss a payment!

    • So what happened to this credit card from Amazon.ca - did they grand-fathered it or simply closed it?

      It seems not to be offered as of Apr-2017 without a lively discussion

    • They stopped accepting applications for this card but everyone who already has one will continue to work, if you have someone in your family that has this card and you were looking to take advantage of no fee conversion you can call in and ask (as the account holder) to have someone added to your account and they will get a card.
