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 20% off anything sold from Amazon when you redeem 1 AMEX Membership Rewards Point.

You can link your American Express Membership Rewards card to your Amazon account by clicking here.

This will only work with AMEX cards that earn Membership Rewards points, such as the AMEX Everyday Preferred, AMEX Platinum, AMEX Business Platinum, etc.

Once you do that, just add items that are shipped and sold from Amazon to your cart. This won’t work for items sold by 3rd parties.

You can save up to $100 off $500 with this offer.

You can use this offer on multiple orders until you reach $100 in max savings.

Save 20% on Amazon deals such as the ones found here.

If you have multiple Amazon accounts, you should try to save this offer to all of them before the offer fills up.

This offer will work on gift cards for hundreds of stores found here. Gift cards sold by Amazon that work for this promotion include AirbnbGap IncNetflixLowe’sNordstromOffice MaxSouthwestStaplesStarbucksUberWhole Foods, and more.

Some accounts can also get 20% off on $400 of Amazon gift cards with $100 of other items sold from Amazon or $100 of gift cards to other stores. This will only work once per account.

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 $500 of Nordstrom gift cards and got the $100 off with the 20% off 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 20% off?

HT: stooges44, via DDF

Amazon offers free shipping with $25+ orders or get free 2nd day shipping on all orders with 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.

“This promo code is now activated and your points will be applied at checkout. Please continue shopping.”

I assume I can come back tomorrow and buy something? (Assuming the promo isn’t used up by then…)

Thanks Dan!

Ben

Pampers sold by amazon not working…..? (I am targeted)

Ben

apparently, the promo only worked when it was combined with some personal courtesy credit that I had with amazon from a previous transaction…weird.

yupy

I never get targeted for anything:( not this or any of the previous point offers

shonny

Does it all need to be purchased at once, on one order, or can it be used on multiple orders totaling $500?

vanilla

Can i split the $500 across multiple order, or will it only work once?

Chuchum Ainer

Weird. Added to two accounts, not showing in cart. Items shipped and sold by amazon.

Do I need prime?

Aaron

Same here, and same question

Mendel

Same here.

YAS

It seems like it will work with Amazon gift cards as long as you have other items in your cart that amount to 20% over the gift card
I added a pack of diapers for 35.34, and an Amazon gift card for $200. This was my price breakdown after applying 1 point.
Order Summary
Items (2): $235.34
Shipping & handling: $0.00
Amex 20% Off: -$35.34
Total before tax: $200.00
Estimated tax to be collected:* $0.00
Total: $200.00
Rewards Points: -$0.01
Order total: $199.99

Amazon GCs

It does work. Maximize it!

Sandy

Worked for me too! Got a bugaboo wheeled board and adaptors ($144) plus $350 amazon gift card for $398. Thanks for the tip!

David

200/235.34 is about 15% discount not 20%. Did you miss something?

Just wondering

What happens if I buy something for $400 and get a $100 gift card and need to return the $400 item? Will I have to pay back the $100

Zal

You will probably be refunded $320

CE

Can I use 200 today and the rest another time

jim

every amazon amex points deal order is getting canceled 2 secs after order saying you have already used the amex card and taken advantage before. lol! so nothing for me

Fraida

Until when can we use this? (Prime day is coming)

Joyce

Looks like my husband was targeted (yay!). I wasn’t (boo!). I can’t seem to find a use-by date anywhere. Does anyone know when this expires? Thanks!

What a chap!

Buy an Amazon GC for $400 and any other GC for $100 (or 2 for $50 or 4 for $25… you catch my drift) or anything else sold by Amazon adding up to $100… and everything except for the Amazon GC will be FREE!

Patrick

Awesome. Thanks worked for me. I bought the Nordstrom gift cards and plan on shopping the Nordstrom anniversary sale next week.

Mlight

Add $400 of Amazon gift cards and $100 of any other to get this deal on Amazon gc’s.

SY

Did anyone actually get the e-gift card?
I placed $400 Amazon gift card and $100 Uber GC at 10:35 still didn’t get it! (Usually comes within 5 minutes)!
I’ll keep u posted!

Sam

I did not either receive them. It’s been over an hour. I chatted with Amazon and they said that there is an internal manual review on the order and it’ll take a few hours. Hoping the outcome will not be cancellations.

Sam

Just to clarify, after 2+ hours, the gift cards did arrive!!! Thanks Dan. Got $400 Amazon gift card and $100 for Starbucks!!?

US

Iv’e had once that tooke 30 min. for the e-deliver, sit tight.

Fair

Order: $400 AMZN e-gift card + $100 Whole Foods GC
Order took ~2 hrs to process, but have e-gift card now.
Struck out on calling/chatting to get a second Amazon account targeted.

SY

Follow up: Got mine after 3 hours!

Mendel

Doesn’t seem to be working for me. I activated the promo and applied 1 point and still no discount. Tried multiple items sold by Amazon.

Ben

Do you have prime

Mendel

no

Ben

It doesn’t seem to be working if you don’t have prime

TracyS

I do not have prime and it worked for me.

J

Worked for me I bought an item. However terms says the promo not good on amazon gift cards.

dave

is there an expiry on this?

Oleg

Got a message “This promo code is now activated and your points will be applied at checkout. Please continue shopping.”.
Added Amex Business Platinum and was able to buy $400 Amex GC and $100 Whole Food GC

Amex GC?

Amex GC?

Shweps

Finally got this! Thanks

reb yid

Ordered $500 in gift cards. Hour later, was informed they suspect someone stole my password, my order’s been cancelled, account locked out for five hours.

reb yid

Interestingly, it was after I tried to combine Amazon GCs with other GCs. When I was able to log back on, that ability was limited; they allowed me to do so, but limited the discount to the cost of the other items.

Maximize

That’s why $400 and $100 split maximizes.

Thank u. Any GAS gc?

scott

I bought 300 in uber gc and 200 in lyft. Total price $400 and got a manual phone call to verify and sent to me immediately after. already in my uber & lyft acct

Deal Guy

Can we and my wife both link to my same amex plat gift card?

Or, if she has a gold card as an additional on my plat card, can she link that?

Thanks

Same card

You should be able to use the same card

Yaakov

I’m already targeted for the $30 off $60. Are these two stackable? Is it going to force me to use one of them first?

Kelev

I added a $400 amazon gc and a $100 whole foods gc to the cart, used 1 mr point to get the $100 discount.

Smith

Can this combine with $30 off $60?

Danny

Got a Southwest $500 gift card for $400.00 Thanks Dan

DH7

In case anyone was wondering – I tried to load $400 to my amazon balance with a 5% card in order to purchase the amazon gc + other gc, just got this message
“Your gift card balance can’t be applied to orders that contain Amazon.com or Visa gift cards, or collectible coins.”
So you wont get 5% on the $400 part, but obviously the 20% off is still amazing

Motti

Thank you! This is great.

Helpurslfbyhlpingothrs

Targeted.
When does the deal expire?

yosef 789

I activated the promotion but I the discount does not display at checkout. Anything I may be doing wrong? Or a method to verify what the issue is?

Thanks!

Will this only work if you have a prime membership?

Yaakov

No

Yaakov

I mean yes (only works with prime)

TracyS

No. I do not have prime and it worked for me.

AnotherDan

GUYS I USED A CARD THAT DECLINED (WASN’T ENOUGH AVAILABLE CREDIT) TO BUY 4x $100 AMAZON GIFT CARDS AND 1 x $100 UBER GIFT CARD. I GOT A NOTIFICATION THAT THE CHARGE DECLINED, BUT SURE ENOUGH GOT THE UBER GIFT CARD (about an hour later)! Literally a pain free way to get $100 free.

Marty

Worked for me! Did exactly like Dan did and walla! Am I able to use the $30 off $60 offer now?

Ira

Thank you Dan.

I just bought the Echo Show on sale for $129.99, and then bought an Amazon gift card for $370.01. Got $100.00 off. I also got $5 credit for delaying next day delivery. So basically bought $375.01 in Amazon money for $400.00, then got the Echo Show for about $25.00, when it regularly goes for about $220.00.

Not bad.

Yaakov

Not sure why but when I used my amex point together with 20%off they didn’t charge tax!

No ST on GC

Sales tax on GCs? Never!

Josh

ordered 200 in Amzn gift cards and ~50 usd or so in items sold by amazon. applied the 1 amex point, new total ~200 .

dev

what would happen if i return the 400 gift card? will they make me return the rest of order?

mn

it’s not working for me on any gift cards

ES

Gift Card trick does not seem to be working anymore? Is it just me? Is anyone having success?

mn

when I added a $200 amazon gift card and $50 worth of stuff sold by amazon it only took off $11.20 under the amex 20% promotion – am I doing something wrong? I tried a whole bunch of times with different gift cards and it still didn’t work. Does it only work with gift cards if you have prime?

Ben

deal works twice…(not sure if mentioned already)

All accounts?

On all accounts. Or just primary?

Sheila

Cool! $500 in Safeway GC’s for $399! Thanks Dan.

Baruch

If I didn’t use yet the first I should activate the second?

NJMACMAN

Worked for $300 Amazon GC and $200 Officemax GC. Thanks.

Sammy

Worked for me a second time- although this time I was not eligible to buy $400 Amazon GC’s. I got $400 in Nordstrom and $100 @ Starbucks. Thanks Dan!!!

shtick

what gift card has the highest resell value on cardcash?

Joy Travel

Tip: For those who got discounted Amazon GC’s yesterday, you can use them for other GC’s effectively getting much more than 20% percent!

Barry

yup – insane..
spent $400 over 2 days.. for $600 worth of gift cards and merchandise.. not bad

Zal

Don’t get how that would work.
To get the discount you need to use your amex as the payment method.
Please explain.
Thanks

Barry

day 1 bought 400 of amazon gc and 100 of other stuff (non amazon gc / merchandise).

day 2 – used 1 amex point and 400 amzon gift cards to buy 500 of non-amazon gift cards

D2

This didn’t work for me. You need to use AX to pay for (I believe) the entire order (except for the one Membership Rewards point) in order to get this offer.

Mbelsky

How did you do this? It’s not letting me use Amazon gc credit and redeem MR on the same purchase….. If you could explain how you did it, I would really appreciate it. Maybe it’s only if your gc balance is less than the total amount being charged?

Brandon White

I already did this offer once, $400 Amazon and $100 Starbucks.
Now I am trying again with the same combination, but it’s only taking 20% off the Starbucks, not Amazon.

YaakovE

Safeway gc’s for me

Eli

Didn’t work a second time for me.

Mark

Great tip! i burned $500 yesterday, including a $250 Amazon gift card and got the 20%. Then i saw this, added it again, and another 30%; but they wont give me 20% on ANY gift card today. A minor inconvenience overall, and still a great deal. Thanks for posting this!

Toni

Worked for me once today- will try again

Shliach

Only getting $40 off not 20% even though order is over 700$
Any ideas?

ckmk47

The 20% off gift cards seems to have died.
You probably only have $200 worth of merchandise in your cart.

Shliach

Had over 700$ worth of merchandise

Jerseysteve

Is there anyway to get a few MR quickly. I only have a few left and need some more I tried calling to see if they would lend me some or give 25 goodwill points but they did not. Any advice?

Amex MR

All you need is 1

SHawn

Promo is used up

michael

I was able to get this twice. First time I did $100 Uber and $400 Amazon gift and second time I did the Coravin and $150 uber and used my Amazon Gift Card to pay for the second 20% off.

Dan

I was just able to get it again

tzvi

i just got it twice

Ben

If i previously saved it twice, will it still work twice

Y s

I was targeted but when I clicked the link in my amex account, amazon said i’m not eligible. anyone else have this? I contacted amazon and they said they’d give me back the 20% retroactively but only if i use amex points for the full amount of the order.

anonymous

I just added it to my account for a second time!

Thanks again

mo

When does it expire?

This promotion starts at 12:00 am PST on July 2nd, 2018 and ends when Amazon elects to end the promotion.
