Amazon Prime members may be gearing up for Prime Day (we’ve got a sneak peek at some of the best early deals you can shop right now!) but we’re going to let you in on a little secret: There’s one way to score even more savings on Tuesday, October 13 and Wednesday, October 14—and beyond.

Prime members with the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature credit card can earn 5% cash back every time they shop with the e-commerce giant. That includes everything from Amazon Fresh orders and digital downloads to gift cards and everyday items, like your recurring diaper delivery. While anyone can sign up for the no-annual-fee card, the rewards rate without a Prime membership (sign up here for a free 30-day trial, then pay $12.99 per month) drops to an unlimited—but still impressive—3% cash back. Better yet, there’s no annual fee, and new cardholders will receive a $50 Amazon gift card upon approval, so you can add that to your bottom line, too.
To put that in perspective, let’s say you’re finally planning to snag a robot vacuum to cut down on your housework, and you have your eye on the iRobot Roomba 891. The popular model, which is on sale for $379.99 from its usual $450, will instantly give you $70 in savings. However, when Prime members buy it with the Amazon Prime Visa Signature, they’ll earn nearly $20 in cash back rewards.

Beyond Prime Day, this Chase card has plenty of perks to write home about—especially if you shop at Whole Foods. Grocery purchases at the supermarket chain earn Prime members 5% back, and unlike some of our other top credit cards for groceries, there’s no spending cap. When they’re not stocking their fridge, they’ll earn 2% at restaurants, gas stations and drugstores and 1% cash back on everything else.
Cardholders will also be privy to exclusive deals throughout the year, with an additional 5% to 20% cash back on certain best-selling items, from smart devices to kitchen gadgets.
And, once we safely resume our globe-trotting adventures, there’s some pretty sweet travel perks, too. Think no foreign transaction fees, travel accident insurance, lost luggage reimbursement and more.
As always, we recommend reading a card’s terms and conditions before applying for new credit. In most cases, qualified applicants will be approved within 15 seconds.
If you’re on a first-name basis with your Amazon Prime delivery person, it’s definitely worth a closer look.
