E-commerce has already changed your local mall. Now it’s changing your wallet.

Amazon AMZN, +1.81% is offering special deals to consumers who have its Prime credit card on Amazon Prime Day, July 11. The retailer will offer up to 15% back in statement credits, on top of the 5% back cardholders already get for buying products through Amazon while using their cards. The company debuted the card in January. It has no annual fee and also offers 2% back at restaurants, gas stations and drugstores and 1% on other purchases.

Retail experts say Amazon isn’t alone: As more consumers do their shopping online, they’ve said goodbye to popular brick-and-mortar stores.
