Several people have reported that additional accounts have been targeted, so be sure to check again even if you weren’t targeted before.

This offer is targeted to select users. If it doesn’t work for you then you can try calling Amazon (888-280-4331) or chatting with Amazon and see if you can get it manually applied to your account…YMMV!
You can also try linking your American Express Membership Rewards card to your Amazon account and check back in a couple days to see if you become targeted.
If you clip the “Click here to activate” coupon via this link it will tell you if you are targeted to save another $30 off $60 at Amazon when you redeem 1 AMEX Membership Rewards Point.
This will only work with AMEX cards that earn Membership Rewards points, including:
Once you do that just add anything $60 or more that is shipped and sold from Amazon to your cart. This won’t work for items sold by 3rd parties.
This won’t work for Amazon gift card purchases, but it will work on gift cards for hundreds of stores found here. Gift cards sold by Amazon that work for this promotion include Airbnb, Gap Inc, Netflix, Lowe’s, Nordstrom, Office Max, Southwest, Staples, Starbucks, Uber, Whole Foods, and more.
If you can select e-delivery cards you’ll be able to request a $60 gift card in order to maximize your savings.
At checkout select the Membership Rewards card that you linked.
You may need to click “Change” by the credit card at checkout if it’s showing a different default credit card.
On the final checkout page click on “Apply rewards points” and enter $0.01 to use 1 point to save 1 cent (Don’t use more than 1 point as buying on Amazon only gives a paltry value of 0.7 cents per AMEX point!):
For example I added a $60 Gap Inc e-delivery card and got the $30 AMEX Promo and $0.01 from the 1 point used at checkout:
You can also try linking your AMEX card to another Amazon account and see if it works from there as well!
What will you buy with $30 off $60?a free trial of Amazon Prime. A prime trial is also free with Amazon Family (which also gets you up to 20% off diapers among other benefits) or Amazon Student. EBT Cardholders can save on Prime Membership here.
