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.
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.
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.
This offer ends on the earlier of (i) at 11:59pm PST on 12/23/2018, or (ii) when Amazon elects to end the promotion.
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.
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 Airbnb, Gap Inc, Netflix, Lowe’s, Nordstrom, Office Max, Southwest, Staples, Starbucks, Uber, Whole Foods, and more.
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?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/Medicaid Cardholders can save on Prime Membership here.
