Today, Chase Card Services Canada, a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) announced the launch of the Amazon.ca Rewards Visa Card.
Cardmembers earn two reward points for every dollar spent on eligible Amazon.ca purchases and one reward point per dollar spent everywhere Visa credit cards are accepted. There is no limit to the amount of reward points cardmembers can accumulate and points do not expire. The Amazon.ca Rewards Visa Card is the second in the Chase portfolio with the online retailer, joining the Amazon.com Rewards Card that launched in the U.S. in 2002.
"We are pleased to expand our partnership to include Amazon.ca with this new card for the Canadian consumer," said Martin Parizeau, chief executive officer, Chase Card Services Canada. "Online shopping has been growing with Canadians taking advantage of global retailers. With the wide variety of items available for sale, Amazon.ca has become a leading online retailer within the Canadian marketplace. Chase brings strong capabilities in enabling online acquisition, which will allow us to seamlessly integrate the Amazon.ca Rewards Visa Card into the consumer's online shopping experience."
