Things to Consider

The non-Amazon related portion of the bonus ($100 or $150) is the normal bonus for these cards. While the Amazon 10% cash back up to $200 does add some value, keep in mind that Discover earns 5% back at Amazon in the 4th quarter and many people often get decent rewards by purchasing Amazon gift cards at stores where they have a category bonus. For example, by purchasing Amazon gift cards with a Chase Ink at Staples you can earn 5X Ultimate Rewards.
