The Top 3 Credit Cards for Shopping on Amazon Prime Day

Want to make the most of those Prime Day sales? Use a credit card offering bonus rewards at Amazon for an even better deal.

Amazon’s biggest sale of the year, Prime Day, is almost here. The event, which technically lasts 48 hours, will take place on Oct. 13 and 14. Although it usually occurs in July, Amazon decided to hold it later this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Perhaps you’re excited for Prime Day and you already know what you’ll buy, or you plan to just look around and see if any deals jump out at you. Either way, Amazon’s sales aren’t the only way to save. You can also significantly boost your savings by using the right credit card when you check out.

And right now, they are using some very tempting offers
