Amazon Visa card 10% off on gas until 12/31

Apparently Chase is giving 10% credit back on gasoline to some Amazon Visa holders.

I wonder if this includes store branded gas stations (Safeway, Costco, etc)?

Either way, thanks for the post.

I signed up for the promotion early last month, shortly after taking delivery on an EV. Drove that almost exclusively so only spent $5 on gas in October - saved $0.50!

Nice, but it didn't work for me just now. "System is unavailable at this time."

Might just be overloaded servers, so I'll try again tomorrow.

Yeah, no gasoline deals for me either!

I no longer have that Chase card anyway. We pretty much exclusively use the Amazon store card so Chase eventually dropped us.

Not me either.

I only get 5% off gas, groceries, and prescriptions until the end of December. That's probably the better deal for me since we spend way more on groceries than gas.

Didn't work for me. Thanks for the heads up though!

I shouldn't need it anyway after they draw my $1.6B ticket tonight.

I really didn't want to dig that card out of my sock drawer anyway. We already get 6% off gas, groceries, and drug stores using an old grandfathered AMEX Blue Cash card. But we're spending quite a bit more on gas now with our camper van. So I gave it a shot.

Same here
Oh well. Maybe it was a bit more popular than they originally envisaged.

I tried, but didn't dig deep enough. For starters, from that link, you have to go to: chase.com/RewardsCategoryFAQs.

And it's not enough to look under Gas Stations to see what's exempted, even though they did mention a few:

Quote:
Merchants that do not specialize in selling automotive gasoline are not included in this category; for example, truck stops, boat marinas, oil and propane distributors, and home heating companies.
You have to look under Grocery Stores:

Quote:
Purchases made at gas stations from merchants who also operate grocery stores are not included in this category.
And under Wholesale Clubs:

Quote:
Gas, fuel, wholesale specialty service purchases such as travel, insurance, cell phone and home improvement will not qualify in this category.
About what I expected and now I know.

Apparently, the offer is a targeted offer. But, the cost of trying is just a few minutes. And it's retroactive to 10/1. Worth a shot.

I wish they had publicized this more! We only use the card for Amazon purchases now, since our Fidelity card gives us 2% on everything, which is better than the Chase 1.5% on most things.

I just activated it, thanks!

My Chase Amazon Visa card is my primary card and I'm an Amazon Prime member but it didn't work for me. I put about $4,000 a month on that card and over $800 in fuel last month alone. (Drove the RV to Moab and back)

I wonder what the criteria was for qualifying. Evidently, they figured they didn't need to encourage me to use the card?

That's interesting. It accepted me without any questions other than "Last name," "Last 4 digit of card number," and "Zip Code."

We use the card only for Amazon (Including "Fresh") and spend less than half of what you do.

I am not sure how it is going to help me as, so far this year, we spent $5.50 on gas.

No issues signing up for me. I would assume you need to have the Chase Amazon PRIME card...there is another Chase Amazon card, but is not a PRIME card.
