Chase Amazon Visa recap
The best feature this card boasted – and the one we’re so glad to see come back – was its 0% foreign exchange fees. When spending in a foreign currency, that’s 2.5% in savings before you even add on the rewards.

This card also had a $0 annual fee.
On top of that, you earned rewards at the following rates:
- 2% cash back for each $1 spent at Amazon.ca, and
- 1% cash back on everything else.
It was love at first swipe.
The only downsides? It didn’t offer any purchase or travel insurance.
New ‒ surprise ‒ features
Aside from all the great features we grew to love, the Chase Amazon Visa will be getting reworked.
And, oh boy, does it deliver.
This time around, applicants can expect the card to come with basic purchase insurance (extended warranty and purchase protection).
…and 2.5% cash back made in foreign currency
Chase is also throwing in another spending category, where you’ll be earning 2.5% cash back on purchases made in foreign currency.
Yes, you read that right.
On top of having the foreign exchange fees waived, you’ll also be getting 2.5% cash back on all your purchases made in a foreign currency – which is completely unheard of on the Canadian credit card market right now.
That’s like getting a 5% savings on all your purchases made in a foreign currency.
