    i got $30 off my Garmin Forerunner GPS using the amazon visa which was sweetly priced at amazon already and their rebate center screwed up and doubled my rebate to $100 instead of $50 and initially trying to deny it. How often does that happen??!! Of course I immediately paid the card off and will never use it again. :)

    Amazon.com card doesn’t seem like a good deal at all. You basically get Amazon gift certs (not cash) at the rate of 3% from Amazon and 1% from select partners. A regular rewards card like Discover or Chase Freedom gets you 1% *cash* on *every* purchase plus 3-5% for varying other transactions.

    As my first credit card, the Amazon.com one’s been pretty good to me so far. The credit limit is a pain though. Mine is only at $400 right now, and I’d love to get some more, especially since I am cash rich. Come on, Chase! Since I received your credit card in February I have bought a car and been paying that off, in addition to student loans, insurance, etc, everything on time, and am now starting a $45K/year job, and you can’t give me a $100 credit increase? My new freaking apartment is $1K/month, I’d really like to pay it by card.
