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 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.

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.

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.

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?

Please leave Airbnb out of future post. They are racist and are attacking our brothers. They don’t deserve our business.




I wouldn’t use the word “racist,” but otherwise i agree.




Can I use my Starwood card for this?


Unfortunately not targeted


#boycot airbnb


Called amazon. They say I need to contact Amex. Any advice?


I had same issue. amazon connected me to amex but they said that since my amex card is woeking, there’s nothing they can do on their end to make the promo work


Will this be like prime day, where the discount will work numerous times (more than $100 total benefit)?


Any code life prime day?


Is there a code for those not targeted like on prime day?


Not targeted 🙁


Didn’t work. Customer service did not understand what I wanted. I placed order and got $20 gift card instead.


isnt working.. i chatted they said “michelle, for this yu need to contact the card issuing bank, as anything related to items or orders we can work and sort,
but as this is related to reward points and payments, you need to contact your bank.:”


I had the same thing!


Worked got $100 off the Samsung galaxy so. Thanks Dan


Not targeted. I called amazon and they said the offer expired… hmmm


I was targeted for the 20% but when I tried to activate the $30 off $60, it’s telling me that the offer has expired


the same promotion had worked for me a couple months back, when it was posted here. Now I cant get it to work and the amazon rep didnt know how to make it work


Wow! Second time for me this year. The question is how it treats items on sale.


AMEX was ofno help either


Can this work on Amazon warehouse items too?

Prof. Perowitz

I’m get to apply Amex rewards points during checkout. After selecting .01 = 1 point, I lose the ability to use another card for payment method.
What’s wrong?


Of course u can’t use another card why would u?

Prof. Perowitz

get 5% on discover


buy ana mazon gift card in advance and then apply it to the purchase


Can you explain please


I was targeted as it allowed me to activate coupon. But when I check out with an iPad. I use 1 Amex point and the rest on my Amex CC and it’s not giving me a discount. Is there a step I’m missing?


I activated the promo but during checkout after adding item sold by amazon and using 1 point was not getting 20% off. called amazon and they gave me a credit for the 20%. What went wrong? Do you need to have prime for the 20% off to work?


i will assume yes you have to have PRIME


what makes you say so? doesn’t say that in terms and conditions.


if you sign up for the Amex EveryDay Preferred Credit Card can you downgrade to the Amex EveryDay Credit Card to avoid the annual fee and still keep the MR signup points?


Was not targeted, called Amazon, they told me its an amex promotion i should call them.
Anyone knows of a good offer for a good double stroller?




1 account didint work, the second it did. thanks


Can the offer be used for multiple small purchases till 100$ of savings, or does it expire after the first purchase.


Multiple uses until $100, as the post says.


Anyone knows how to stack this with subscribe and save ?


The small letters says only SOLD and shipped by Amazon.


I activated deal but confused discount at checkout after paying with a point for Amazon item…


Worked like a charm bought the Samsung S9 that’s already discounted and got another hundred dollars off.
Did another order for different products and used the chase promotion as well.
I did use both promotions on prime day seems like we can use it again.
Thanks Amex & Chase! Love you guys.


Targeted but not working. contact Amazon or Amex?


I contacted Amazon first about the disappearing “20% discount off Amazon-sold items when using any amount of your Amex Membership Rewards Points.” I’d used the offer successfully, and the POOF—it was nowhere to be found on my next purchase. They couldn’t figure out why the discount deal had just disappeared, but said they’d escalate the issue and my future orders WOULD reflect the discount. (Hasn’t happened.)They also suggested I call Amazon Marketing. I asked for the phone #, which turned out to be the general Amex number. So I called Amex, and they seemed to know nothing about the program. After checking with a supervisor, the CSR said it’s an AMAZON offer, and they’re the ones I need to talk to. I do have screenshots of my convo with the first Amazon rep who promised the discount WOULD show up on future orders. So guess I’m going to have to contact Amazon again. This is craziness! Why bother psyching customers up for this perk and then yank it out from under them? I’m disappointed in both Amazon and Amex for all this confusion.

Lazer k

Is it me, or this doesn’t work anymore?
I got it activated in the morning but now it’s not working…


Is there a max? Won’t get more than $100 credit


$100 max as the post says.
You can also try it from another Amazon account.


So I used this today and thought I had put in .01 for points to use, but looking later on, I saw that I had been charged the whole order in points (over 30,000). I called Amazon and they couldn’t help. Did anyone have a similar experience and was able to resolve it (by getting the points refunded and the card charges instead)? HUCA? Am I better off speaking to Amex about this? Thank you!

Tracht good

You should get an email from amex confirming you used points and asking if you changed your mind


What did you order, if it is a physical item you can return the item and get refund on the original payment method which will be points back to your account, but if you order gift card, I have not idea since gc usually is not refundable


Once i activate this promo does it expire or i have to spend the thing on black Friday?

Tracht good

Get an Amazon gift card to lock in savings


Did it work ?




I added the card today, and amazon chat told me the card has to be on account for 12 months and not have been used for 12 months


Worked for me the first time but not the second.


Same here. Anything to do?


Still not working for me 🙁


code doesn’t work for me. oh well


Just curious for anyone that got to use the promo twice during Prime Day, meaning saving $200 total during that time, did it also work for you for this promo? Was wondering if they knew that we took advantage of it twice already and therefore it doesn’t apply to us?


not working for me for the second time 🙁


If I didn’t use up the $100 yet from the first offer and am targeted for this offer as well will it still be eligible to receive both offers?


The previous activated offer no longer works? I had activated it on my account but now it no longer shows when trying to use it


Alas, it didn’t work for me a second time in last few days.


“The promotionional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.”


Worked for me the first time though without the promotion code.


Only first time worked.


worked for me on both accounts on Thanksgiving. Not working second time today. Back on Prime day I think it worked for me 2x on each account.


Used 1 Amex MR point and 20% code on an Apple Watch Series 4 for a total of $100 off purchase price.


Got the 1st $100 but not the 2nd…


2nd didnt work.


Didn’t work for me 2nd time even with code. Previously on Prime day it worked at least twice.


Got ana Uppbaby Vista 2018 reg 899 stacked completion discount of 15% which made it 764 plus 20% amex code got an uppababy vista for 664!!!!!


I tried using the code multiple times. I called amazon multiple times, none would help, they wanted a copy of Amex offer directly to me. AMEX said I need to speak to their rewards dept, which was closed last night.


Working very well. Doing $50 increments of physical Lowe’s GCs. Will spend a total of 10 MR points, but will also get $50 in Prime Now credits. Stinks that they cannot be used together but still good deal for very few MRs.


I added my Amex card last Friday and got targeted this time


Just used it. Still working!

Mickey Gottlieb

I communicated with Amazon after receiving message that I could not use promotion. They eventually responded back to me and advised rules re the promotion that:

Customer must have the American Express card active in the Amazon account during the last 12 months, and if during that time the rewards points were not used in any orders, the customer will be eligible for this promotion.


Does this work for subscribe and save?



thanks Dan and happy birthday all!

i used already $100 off with this now it didn’t work anymore I chatted with Amazon and they said they will refund me 20% so i was able to use it again thanks


What did you say that got them to give it to you again?


Got 20% off an Apple Watch series 4


working second time!


thanks for this dan! I was able to save a lot on the apple watch series 3 and new ipad!


will we still be able to avail AMEX return protection if purchased using 1 AMEX point and rest on the AMEX card?




I contacted Amazon and the rep said that it ended already.


this is now dead


Worked, thank you. Took a little while but finally all good.

Moishe Shmiel

how di u get it to work if its expired?


Is this dead?

b katz

this offer has now ended.


Amazon killed this. Complete BS. Terms said you have till 12/23 to buy and they just terminated it




I was waiting to purchase something and now it’s dead. So annoying!


Same here 🙁


I see that this is dead now. But did this work for visa gift cards??


No, it didn’t work for Visa gc, but it did for other gcs. However Amazon killed this in advance of the 12/23 expiration. I understand that it was in the terms and their prerogative to do so but still super frustrating because I had not yet finished using it when they pulled the rug without warning.
