Amazon prime Day has grown into one of the biggest shopping days of the year with millions of deals throughout the site. If you're already a Prime member, you're already in on the deals when they go live. If you're not and you still want access to the sale, you can sign up for a free trial of Prime to test run Prime Day along with Amazon's other services like video, music, and of course two day shipping.
While the deals on Prime Day are always some of the best of the year, you can make out even better with an Amazon credit card that gets you extra rewards on top of all those savings. Amazon tends to offer exclusive discounts on top of its usual rewards during Prime Day for its credit card cardholders. We've done the homework to provide you with all the information you need to up your savings when Prime Day is announced.
Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card
One of the most obvious choices to support your Prime Day shopping is the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card. If you are a Prime member, you'll earn 5% cash back on top of your savings. The nice things is that this is not just a Prime Day offer, but consistent rewards on every purchase made at Amazon.

Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card
You're required to have an active Prime membership to participate in Prime Day so the non-Prime Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card won't be helpful during the big day. However, if you plan to use a Prime free trial to access Prime Day and won't continue as a member, it is a viable option for earning 3% cash back on every purchase (including Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals) made at Amazon

Amazon Store Card

Amazon Store Card Credit Builder
Amazon just announced a new credit card to their lineup: the Amazon Store Card Credit Builder. The new card is designed for those who are rebuilding credit or those who are starting with credit for the first time. It offers cardholders a secured limit of up to $1000, access to TransUnion® CreditView to track credit scores, promotional financing from 6, 12, to 24 months on special categories, and 5% back on purchases for those with an eligible Prime membership. Approved cardholders will get a $10 Amazon gift card as well, an added bonus if you are getting into credit the same time you are getting ready Prime Day.

While many will stick to Amazon's own credit cards , there is another card out there that is also a great option if you're looking for cash back who earns maximum rewards no matter where you are shopping.
While many will stick to Amazon's own credit cards, as they are certainly the obvious choice to earn the most additional rewards on Prime Day, there is one main benefit about signing up for a different credit card outside of Amazon's own, and that has everything to do with signup bonuses. While Amazon's cards offer small signup bonuses, they max out at $70. There are plenty of cards out there that offer much more substantial signup bonuses that will help pay for Prime Day.
The Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express offers a statement $250 statement credit if you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months.
The Capital One® Quicksilver® Cash Rewards Credit Card offers $150 cash back if you spend $500 in the first 3 months.
