Summary

The Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature is a card designed exclusively for Amazon Prime members. If you're a regular Amazon shopper, this card is one of the best cards out there, offering a whopping 5% cash back on everything you purchase from the site. To sweeten the deal, Amazon provides the same rewards if you shop at Whole Foods, the Amazon-owned grocery store.

While the rewards at other locations are less, it can still be worth it to keep the card in your wallet, even if you don't shop at Whole Foods. You'll earn 2% cash back at restaurants, gas stations and drug stores. You'll earn 1% cash back elsewhere.

The card offers a $70 Amazon gift card as a sign up bonus. This bonus is smaller than the bonus offered by many cards, but there's no spending requirement, which is a nice perk. if you're approved, the credit is applied to your Amazon account immediately, so there's no waiting to take advantage of the bonus.
