Our Verdict

I can’t get this $200 offer to show, but Reddit user vaudevillevik reports seeing it. I wouldn’t be surprised if this offer becomes more widely available for tomorrow, July 1st, when the Amazon Visa card from Chase gets the bump to $200, as we reported previously.

The standard offer on the American Express Amazon Business card has been $125 and sometimes has a spend requirement (we did once see an offer for $225 some time ago). This offer is bumped to $200 and has no spend requirement making it a sweet time to sign up.

The Visa card has the advantage over the Amex version since the 5% is unlimited on the Visa versus $120,000 cap on the Amex. I’m not sure if the Amex version gets the increased cashback rates of up to 25% on select products that the Visa version gets.  I suppose some people like the Amex since it’s a business card and doesn’t add to your 5/24, or simply if they use it for a business. Let us know if there are any other reasons you prefer one over the other.

I got it to show after looking for something that was going to be shipped to an address that I have listed as a “business address.” I also have an AmEx Biz Gold listed as my default payment as I’m trying to meet the MSR. I’m guessing that’s the more pertinent aspect.

How do u “looking for something”? Just search for it or place an order (and cancel later)?
Got “Earn a $100 statement credit after you make $3,000 in purchases on your Card in your first 3 months.” from the link rn, even worse than standard $125 offer.

I am still seeing $125 gift card. Even with incognito. Strange.

Can I apply for the amazon personal and business cards at the same time?

Yes, I applied for the personal and business cards on the same day and got approved for both. Received the $200 GC instantly for each as well.

It shows up now with an end date of Jul 13. Not until 2 pm. Unfortunately, instantly declined in my case because of a return payment 29 days ago.

Do you expect to receive a 1099 form?

Showing for me. Stupid question, I know, but is there any downside? No hard pull if you already have Amex biz cards, no? And doesn’t count toward 5/24 of course. Only Amex limit.

Correct, the only downside is that it occupies a slot for the AmEx 5 credit card limit.

How long did it take everyone to get their gift card once you were approved for the card?
