Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card Review – 5% Cash Back at Amazon


Today we review the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card. For those who frequently buy from Amazon, it’s hands down the best rewards card available. As you’ll see, you can earn up to 5% cash back with no annual fee.

Every month I spend a few minutes reviewing the monthly credit card purchases my wife and I make. Seventy-five percent of that time is invested in looking at our Amazon transactions.
