Update: You can find the terms of the promotion here.


American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.

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

Once you do that just add anything $50 or more that is shipped and sold from Amazon to your cart. This won’t work for items sold by 3rd parties.

This also 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 include AirbnbGap IncNetflix, Lowe’sNordstrom, Office MaxSouthwest, StaplesStarbucksUberWhole 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.

Select the Membership Rewards card and then click on “Pay for entire order with points.”

On the next page apply the following promo code for $25 off $50 (Exp: 12/31/17 or after 80K uses): AMEX17EVER

Using 3,571 points to save $25 would be downright criminal, they can be used for over $71 of flights with the Business Platinum card! After applying the $25 off code be sure to scroll down and drop the number of points to 0.01 on the final checkout page in order to use 1 point to save $0.01:

amex1

 

 

 

 

You should see the $25 AMEX Promo and $0.01 from the 1 point used at checkout:

amex3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If this doesn’t work for you then you can try calling Amazon (888-280-4331) or chatting with Amazon to get it manually applied to your account.

You can also try linking your card to another Amazon account and see if it works from there as well!

Is BlueCash Everyday card eligible?

“We’re sorry, but your Card is not currently enrolled in the Membership Rewards program.”

Doesn’t look like I can enroll on Amex’s site.

Stacks with the Amazon Move Promo as well.

Amanda

This worked on both of my Amazon accounts. So easy. Thanks!!!

Joe

Will this work if you took advantage of this at the end of this past year as well?

UBER Gift card

I got an Uber gift card. The simplest! 😉

Thanks Dan!

Web Developer

Do I have to manually save this promo to my Amex account before going to Amazon?

No
Daniel

Didn’t work on either of my accounts. It said this code could not be applied to this purchase. Or something like that.

Rallydave

Thanks Dan. Worked perfectly. Got a landries 50 gift card. We go there regularly so 50% off is a great deal for something we would do anyway. Thanks so much Dan!!

hsinaz

‘The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.’

Dee

does the amex business gold card work? or can anyone list eligible amex cards?

thanks!

Anonymous

@Dan: Chatted with the rep and she said she said I was eligible but I have to order first. I made the order with 0.01 points and paid 49.99. She took down the order number and will apply $25 when it ships. I am just concerned that the order total is 1 cent below 50.00 now. Hmm… will see if it flies.. Thanks Dan!

Here’s what Amazon Chat are saying:

“I was able to locate some information on the promotion but I am not able to see the restrictions as this promotion was offered by AMEX
There may be other restriction that apply or also a private offer to your friend, so I am going to ask you to contact your friend to see if he got an email with terms and condition.”

Jay

Worked perfectly for me! Thanks!

Anonymous

@Dan: They told me I should place the order and after the order ships they’ll refund me the $25.
I have the Zync card (which is discontinued) do you think that;s the problem?

Izzy

@Joe:

Sam

Worked to buy gift cards from 2 Amazon accounts!

JK

Haven’t gotten promo to work yet but the chat rep did provide a $12.50 courtesy credit on my next non-gift card order. If only I got paid for every HUCA!

DP

Chatting with Amazon, they asked me where I got the code from… what should I say?

Josh

Thank you Dan!!! You just saved me $25.

iahphx

Thanks for the reminder. I tried doing this a few weeks ago on new AMEX card and, for some reason, it couldn’t “find” my card. It worked fine today, though. So there may be a several week gap between getting an eligible AMEX card and setting up the Amazon link.

Jacob

Did not work
Amazon is going to credit my amex $25.00

Jacob

They just told me it’s going to be an amazon credit

meryl

Thanks, Dan. Worked beautifully.

Jacob

Why is mine not working
I’m using a gold business open amex card

Eric

Dan, You mention using points with Business Platinum card for flights (2 cent/point). Can you suggest other good ways to use the points? or a link to one of your other great posts that would give me some ideas.

chaya

didnt work from one of my accounts, so tried it from another account and it worked

thanks all!

donor

Also got a rep asking for the link to the offer- not telling them it’s from DD!

donor

they want a link to the promo

Grant Workman

CHAT: “Thank you for your patience. I had checked the details and found that the promo code that you provide is not valid.”

Eli

Can you buy an Amazon gift card from lowes with a lowes gc?

aaron

They wanted a link and I said my friend shared it with me, that worked no problem!

aaron

It’s not working for all GC trying to buy a Safeway GC and it’s not working

ZT

It shows the price of $50, when I add the promo code it takes it down to $25, when I pay with points it deducts 3,571 points. I already ordered, checked my Amex points and 3571 points were deducted. I called amazon, they said that was the promotion.

Davidmal

***MAKE SURE YOU ADD THE MILE FIRST!!!!!***

@Mark
I tried with another card under the same account. Doesn’t seem to work.

lindnuck

It worked perfectly, just got a Whole Foods $50 gift card for $25. Thanks Dan!

@Dan. Please explain what I missed. I started by clicking on the link and linking my AMEX.

Hello,

My name is Noel and I am writing this email as a follow up with your recent contact to our customer service department.

I’m sorry to learn that you are unable to use the promotional code AMEX17EVER to avail $25 off for purchase of $50 or more worth of eligible items on Amazon.

Please be know that, We occasionally offer promotional certificates to potential customers or to select existing customers, to encourage them to shop at Amazon.com.

Please be informed that, the promotion to receive $25 off for purchase of $50 worth or more of eligible items on Amazon was offered by invitation only to a limited group of customers, and is valid only for the e-mail addresses to which it was sent.

Code didn’t work for me, so I chatted as Dan suggested. Getting a $25 credit applied.

“Okay. request you to place the order. I will issue a refund of $25 within 24 hours of shipping of the item and send you an email Please place the order.”

Arthur Friedman

It worked for me for a Starbucks gift card. Now I get some FREE COFFEE with more points to get MORE FREE COFFEE!

Blue sky

EER

Is there any way to know when they’re reaching 80k? I wanna place my order next week…

DP

They told me yesterday that I would get the $25 credit after placing the order, but I don’t see the credit yet.

Shifra

Thanks Dan! It worked and I saved $25 on a household appliance I had been debating over. This sealed the deal.

Yoko

@DP:
I was told the same thing. The credit will post AFTER it ships

JT

Dan,

Is the offer per MR account or per Amex card? I have 2 Amex cards tied to the same MR account.

Thanks.

Amex everyday card

Do you have to have a prime account for this offer? Cuz its not working for me. Using the amex everyday card

doug

thanks dan $50 @ nordstrom sweet!!!

bob

“Offer is not available to American Express Membership Rewards eligible cards whose points have been previously used for purchases at Amazon.com in the past twenty four months.” is what Amazon is telling me

farsighted99

Make sure what you are purchasing is sold “By Amazon” and shipped “By Amazon” or it won’t work. Also, the Gift Cards should be from “ACI Gift Cards”. ACI is owned by Amazon, so it’s fine. If you have other amazon accounts for say, other family members, make sure you only use a different card for each transaction (I don’t think it works with amex cards that have different numbers for AU’s)…

sb

Saying code cannot be applied to purchase

Manny

Tried it today and it worked for me. Used 0.01 in points and got a $50 Safeway GC for $24.99. Thanks, Dan!

nate

doesn’t work with gift cards according to amazon. had a chat with them and they said it does apply to any type of gift cards. tried getting an uber gift card.

duvid

Are airbnb gcs stackable on airbnb.com ?

duvid

Tried with biz plat and blue4biz both didn’t work tried opening anew amz acct and linking those same cards after deleting them from the first acct still no worky ….any suggestions other than chatting? And what’s a good num to call ? Also can i get the promo for au cards also ?

duvid

Correction they wouldn’t let me link the cards to my new acct for pay with points in the first place….and i got the num from the post btw

DP

Still haven’t gotten my $25 credit yet, which they said I would get when the order shipped (which was 2 minutes after placing the order). I’m chatting with a rep now and they want to give me an Amazon Promo Credit, but I want the money back on my credit card like they said I would.

myi

After 3-4 regular phone reps and having one agree that it’s a valid code I got disconnected mid call… so we took it to the supervisor and boom $25 credit…
Pretty funny to see the email they sent me..

How to take advantage of this promotion:

If you haven’t already linked your American Express card to your Amazon account, you can do that here.
Shop at Amazon.com and add $50 worth of products (which must be sold and shipped by Amazon.com) to your Shopping card.

Many merchant gift cards work as well, so you can go ahead and search for merchant gift cards here.

On the payment page, select your linked Membership Rewards earning credit card. Select “Choose a different amount” and enter the number of points you want to use towards your purchase. Since I do not like redeeming my points at Amazon (due to the low redemption value), I entered just 1 cent which means 1 point will be applied. For the promotion to apply, the minimum amount required is only 1 point!

Do not do full points as it is not a good value!

You will see the $25 taken off on the right-hand side displaying your total amount.

The terms state that to be eligible for this offer, you must be logged into an account which has been active for 90 days or longer. It also states that the offer is not available to American Express Membership Rewards eligible cards whose points have been previously used for purchases at Amazon.com in the past twenty four months.
