Is the Amazon Store credit card reported to the credit agencies?

I'd like to know if a good payment history with this card will affect credit score or not.

    Are you talking about the Amazon.com Rewards Visa Card, or the Amazon Store Card? – Ben Miller - Reinstate Monica May 20 '15 at 0:16
  • Store Card. I know the rewards card will report. – eComEvo May 20 '15 at 0:20

    I see others actually looked it up. But I'd say in general, store cards do indeed show up on your credit report. I have a couple of store cards and they all show up. – Jay May 20 '15 at 13:36

The Amazon.com Store Card Terms and Conditions state the following:

Credit Bureau Reporting. We may report information about your account to credit bureaus. Late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your account may be shown in your credit report.

The card is issued by Synchrony Bank. Generally, store cards do report to credit bureaus, so I see no reason why this one would not.

Amazon.com Store Card

  • Curious. You show a different bank. Yet, both sites show a fresh date. – JTP - Apologise to Monica May 20 '15 at 11:18

    @JoeTaxpayer Our answers are about two different cards. My answer is about the card he asked about (Amazon store card), and your answer is about the Amazon rewards Visa card, which he said in the comments he was not asking about. – Ben Miller - Reinstate Monica May 20 '15 at 12:02

    I can confirm that my Amazon Store Card does show up as Synchrony Bank, like Ben mentioned. It also correctly identifies my credit limit and utilization as one would expect. I've had it for years, even before they switched to Synchrony. – Xrylite May 20 '15 at 17:44

The T&C page shows:

Authorization: When you respond to this credit card offer from Chase Bank USA, N.A., a subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co. ("Chase", "we", or "us"), you agree to the following:

Which means a real bank is behind the card. Yes. It will hit your credit report.

  • Thanks! Upvoted for the details on the bank in question and confirmation of reporting on Rewards card. – eComEvo May 20 '15 at 1:19
  • Funny. My reply was timestamped 4 minutes before OP clarified 'store card'. But the DV still followed.... – JTP - Apologise to Monica May 20 '15 at 15:30
  • Mine shows up on my credit report. – Loren Pechtel May 20 '15 at 15:43
  • @JoeTaxpayer Still appreciate the response, hence the upvote. :) Ben's just happened to be more specific to what I was looking for. – eComEvo May 20 '15 at 16:30
