Chase Amazon at WholeFoods

Currently uncapped. Some of my local WFs used to carry variable (i.e. $500) Visa gift cards but most of them switched to the $100 cards. Anyone seeing the $500s still?

It can be attractive to some people. You get the Freedom 5% and Discover 5%...

I think the OP assumed everyone would know what the thread title meant, but I guess you haven't heard the news:

On Monday, it was in the news that Amazon had announced that Chase Amazon Prime card holders would receive 5% back at Whole Foods (which Amazon had bought a few months back) if they are Amazon Prime members.

Freedom and Discover only give 5x/5% on all grocery stores (I've never seen them specific to Whole Foods), and they only do that one quarter each year typically, and not this current quarter. The Chase Amazon card 5% at Whole Foods is year-round AFAIK.

So that's the reason the OP was asking specifically about Whole Foods, and not other grocery stores.

No $500's in the DFW area for atleast 5 or 6 months now. Sad, since there were/are alot of WF specific deals that could have been lucrative.

I do not know what I said wrong. I just saying that this Chase Amazon and WF reward is not that super attractive. If Chase senses folks are buying gift cards at WF at 5% reward, it will shut it down.

Chase will shut you down even if you treat them like a lady... So you might as well clean their clock.

The trouble with the above sentiment is that once Chase stops your ticker, it never restarts for any of their clocks.

Just checked my local Whole Foods. 25, 50, & 100 are available. No 500, not even a 200.
