American Express Amazon Prime Business Card – Bonus Increased To $225

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • There is an increased bonus on the American Express Amazon Prime Business card. You get the standard $125 Amazon gift card on approval with an eligible Prime membership and you also get a $100 statement credit after you spend $3,000 on the card in the 2% back and 1% back categories in the first 3 months (e.g Amazon purchases do not count).

Card Details

  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 5% cash back or 90 days interest free on purchases at Amazon Business, AWS, Amazon.com and Whole Foods Market
    • 2% back at U.S. restaurants, U.S. gas stations and on wireless telephone services
    • 1% back on all other purchases
  • $0 annual fee
  • Free Business Prime

Our Verdict

Standard bonus on this card is just the $125 gift card, although we’ve seen that increase to $150 sometimes. This is the biggest offer we’ve seen on this card. It’s a shame spending on Amazon doesn’t qualify for the $3,000 spend required. I’ll still be adding this to our list of the best business credit card bonuses.

I thought this was saying $225 in gift card and the $100 statement credit, but it just adds the statement credit to the standard offer and makes it so you have to spend $3k. Doesn’t make me feel that bad about getting the card before, as I didn’t have to do the spend to get the gift card.

5% back with Prime.

What happens if you cancel prime right after the bonus posts?

Nothing except that you would earn 3% on Amazon purchases from then on.

what’s really cool of them is that for those of us who didn’t get this offer … at least what happened to me … is over the summer, they offered a $100 statement credit for the $3000 spend … even though I had signed up for the card some time ago. so essentially got the second part of the offer even though I was already a card holder. thanks Amex!

Trying to understand what makes this such a great offer that it is added to the best credit card list. Not questioning your decision, just making sure that I’m not missing something. Is it really only $225 after $3,000 spending?

Plus, no new account AND, at least with me, I haven’t gotten an inquiry from Amex in a while.

How would this work if I have Amazon Prime in my name and my wife signs up for this card? Would she still get the bonus?

FYI – It seems the non-prime offer is $100 statement credit + $100 gc. Not sure if this is known

If I’m reading the link correctly – https://www.doctorofcredit.com/free-business-prime-for-american-express-amazon-business-cardholders-first-30-days-only/ isn’t it one YEAR of free prime if you sign up within the first 30 days of having the card??? So, non-prime would get the $100 gc, $100 statement credit after 3k spend, AND a year of free prime with the separate offer. I think.

Which Amex card allows you to generate referral for this Amazon Business card? My MR AmEx card does not generate Amazon Business referrals

When I pull up the offer it only says, “$100 gift car.” How do we get the $125.00 offer?

Does this card counts towards Amex’s 5 card rules?

Hi to get the $125 GC, would having a trial 6 month Prime student account qualify? I wasn’t sure since this is a business card: Amazon.com eligible Prime memberships are:

Annual or monthly Prime memberships (excluding Prime Video)
Prime benefits shared via an Amazon Household (see Sharing your Prime Benefits for more information)
Prime Student memberships
Trial memberships of annual and monthly Prime and Prime Student (excluding Prime Video subscriptions

Amazon Business eligible Prime memberships are:
Trial or Paid U.S. Business Prime memberships
Annual or monthly Prime memberships (excluding Prime Video)
U.S. Amazon Business accounts that receive shipping benefits from an Amazon.com account with an annual or monthly Prime membership, both Trial and Paid (excluding Prime Video)
