The Chase Ink Bold is my main credit card. Free for the first year, it offers 5x Chase Ultimate Rewards (UR) points for purchases at office supplies stores. Only 1x UR points at Amazon.com.
However, Staples and Office Max both sell Amazon.com gift cards. Yesterday I popped over to the Staples in Spring, Texas to buy 5 $100 Amazon gift cards for $500.00 out the door including tax. By using my Chase Ink Bold card, I received 2500 UR instead of 500. Chase UR are amongst the most valuable “points” currency, transferable to many travel related partners like Hyatt and United.
I got 5. Once activated, I just the load the gift card numbers to my amazon account where the credit sits and waits to be used for future Amazon purchases.
If you have the Ink Bold, this is a great way to meet the minimum spend requirements or churn bonus points. These $100 Amazon cards make great Christmas presents too!
