Chase has released a few new cards in the past several months. And they don’t seem to be slowing down!
Via Reddit, Chase has released a new credit card, the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa. This card will give you 5% back for Amazon purchases, 2% back at restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores, and 1% back on everything else.
But you MUST have an Amazon Prime account to earn 5% back at Amazon!

Million Mile Secrets Reader, Mike, commented:
Am I missing something, or is the no-fee Chase Freedom Unlimited far superior to the Barclaycard Arrival Plus? You can get more value with 1.5 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 when you transfer them. Even the Citi Double Cash looks superior, earning effectively 2% cash back vs. 2.1%. And you can use it for anything and there is no annual fee. Are there any benefits other than the sign-up bonus of the Barclaycard Arrival Plus that would justify the $89 annual fee?
Mike makes some great points! There are good no annual fee credit card options that earn valuable rewards instead of the $89 annual fee Barclaycard Arrival Plus.
But the Barclaycard Arrival Plus has perks that make the card worth signing-up for, and depending on your situation, even keeping!
