American Express has recently offered several cards that includes a free 1 year membership for amazon prime! Here are the cards that include the offer:
- Blue Cash Everyday -- NO annual fee, $50 bonus, 3% cashback on groceries, 2% on gas.
- Blue Cash Preferred -- $75 annual fee, $100 bonus, 6% cashback on groceries, 3% on gas.
- Platinum Card -- $450 annual fee, $250 bonus, $200 airline credit, and free airport lounge access.
- Business Gold Rewards -- No annual fee for the first year, then $175 after that, $300 bonus.
This is great timing for the holidays. You can actually apply for the credit card and once you are approved, you'll get your card number so you can sign-up for amazon prime the same day.
The Amazon prime membership is a $79 value which includes free 2-day shipping, amazon movies/shows, free lending library, etc. With this membership you can also share the 2-day shipping with up to 4 family members.
I don't like to pay annual fees so, I would say go with Blue Cash Everyday which will never have an annual fee. If you know how to leverage the other benefits then the other cards could be a good option also. I actually just got the Blue Cash preferred because I was able to get the annual fee waived because I'm a member of the military.
