Update: This targeted offer has been extended until 7/31 at 11:59pm PDT!

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 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 Blue, Green, Gold, Platinum, Everyday, and Everyday Preferred.

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 AirbnbGap IncNetflixLowe’sNordstromOffice MaxSouthwestStaplesStarbucksUberWhole 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:

amex1

 

And then enter the following promo code on the final checkout page for $30 off $60 (Exp: 7/11 or after 80K uses): AMEX17PRIME

 

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? Hit the comments!

Amazon offers free shipping with $25+ orders or get free 1 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/Medicaid Cardholders can save on Prime Membership here.

It worked! Awesome. Thanks.

Nice amex balance 🙂

Sam

That’s a whole lot of points?!

Eli

Does this work with the blue cash everyday?

Yis1

I had the same question..re Blue Cash..
And also re Amex SPG points?

mommafrica

I applied and received the Blue Business Plus especially for reasons such as this. I’ve made my first payment on July 1 but haven’t seen any points as of yet. This would have been a no-brainer for a Whole Foods gift card.

Do you know how long it takes before you see your first set of points? Hoping I can see them before the 11th or before this runs out.

And congrats to your new site.

Eli

I tried linking my Blue Business Plus to my Amazon account, but it says that Amex is reporting that I dont have a rewards account (I do – I can see on my AMEX account page)

Yehuda

I’m having the same issue…

Elie

Amazon chat is asking for a link to the promotion

Connor

@Elie the code didnt work for me either- i eventually chatted with amazon and they gave me a $30 credit for a future purchase

Primer

How do I search for products that will only show items sold and shipped by amazon?

grateful

Hey Dan- Thanks for the tip- offer worked and it got myself a GAP gift card TY!

laib

None of those promo codes ever work for me, is there anything i can do ?

Eli

$60 @ whole food for $30

Me

If I return one of the items in my $60 order, will I be charged the additional $30? I wanna make sure I use it for something I for sure won’t be returning.

Shim

BE”H SHALOM
WILL IT WORK WITH MORE THAN ONE AMEX CARD

Anom

What amex cards work for this offer? I have the everyday and starwood but they both dont work.

WHaa

That would be too much information you ask for. Instead spend the next hour finding out that your specific amex cards don’t work. Like I did. The amount of time wasted filling in the gaps of these postings is astronomical.

Ches

worked for me. Thank you

John L

Does this only work with AMEX Blue Everday Card? I went through the above described prompts but it never allowed me to use my AMEX points for purchase. Thanks

J r

Doesn’t work – called Amazon and they had no idea how to apply it.

QSMAN

No luck with chat…..

Dovid

Spoke with a representative over chat – he applied the code value to my gift card balance and I was able to use my Chase Freedom Unlimited instead – chat worked great!!

Carageenan

How did you do this? I tried chatting but I didnt get anywhere. Do you have a copy of the chat?

colby

@dan, When I viewed the post on my iphone 6, it truncated the promo code to “AMEX17PRI”, instead of “AMEX17PRIME”, and so it obviously didn’t work for me when I first tried; wasn’t until I read a different blog that I saw the full code. People may be having the same issue I did, if viewed on an iphone, and coming to the conclusion that they weren’t targeted. Not sure why it did that, maybe because the “promo code” is not written in a regular font and instead appears to be a link of some sort (sorry I am not well versed in all types of links and clickable items). Hope that helps others.

Revital Sarkhovitch

Lol me2 tnx for the info

Leah

Would this work for a secondary user on an Amazon Household account?

Mark

I’ve been trying but it isn’t working. Last deal like this (25 off 50 a few months ago) worked once for each secondary account, but this one (so far) isn’t working on secondary accounts.

Moshe

Thanks Dan. It worked right away for me. There was a basketball hoop that I wanted to get my kids for a while but it was $84 so I was hesitant. It went down to $54 after I followed your instructions!

Danny

Worked on a Nordstrom GC for $60

Moshe

Thanks Dan. It worked right away for me. There was a basketball hoop that I wanted to get my kids for a while but it was $84 so I was hesitant. It went down to $54 when I applied the promo!

Dave

Chat Rep said that the promo can’t be used for any giftcards. Anyone have a link to the terms?

em

same to me, did you solved it?

Martin

Tried using this and even though I see the promotion on my Amazon checkout page I get this error: “The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.” ????!

Leah

Chat with them. I got the same message and they told me they would apply the $30 credit to my order within 2-3 days.

Yankle

got same error message. called support they told me i wasnt invited and i already used my membership rewards points in the last 12 months. refused to apply coupon. oh well

Mountain Man

Got some more Mobil 1 0w/40. 12 quarts and fleece filter for $37. Pretty solid!

JACOB

DIDNT WORK BUT CHAT REP SAID THE SUBMITTED A FORM TO TAKE CARE ON IT
DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO CHAT ON MY OTHER AMAZON ACCOUNT OR THEY SEE THAT I HAVE 2 ACCOUNTS?

Modi

Any way it work f delta Amex?

yudig

The start date for the promo was yesterday Wed Jul 05 07:00:00 UTC 2017, after which I’m afraid 100,000 people have taken advantage of the promo. Unfortunately, the limit has been reached for using the promo.

arye

as per amazon:
Customers who have redeemed Membership Rewards points towards the cost of an Amazon purchase within the past 12 months are not eligible for this offer.

Naif

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

Greatful

Worked for me! Thanks Dan!!

ddf

tnx

lotofsimcha

bought refurbished amazon tap…deal of day for 69.99 – 30 thanks

allan

worked great …. remember the coupon code

Aay

i am targeted for this offer on at least 1 of the 4 Amex MR cards associated with this account but for some odd reason when i try to check out, all 4 Amex MR cards are grayed out.. it tells me that i can use it and gives me the amount of points i have but it’s grayed out and i cannot select either of them. any thoughts?

Avid Reader

Worked for me! Thx Dan.

Dave

It didn’t work at checkout. I chatted CSR and after reviewing the T&Cs they said, “Please accept my sincere apology for this. I am going to fill the Marketing and Promotions form. Our specialist team will get back to you within 24 to 48 hours.”

josh

Same happened to me, just got an email saying I wasnt targeted and therefore I am SOL.

A A

It works for me once. linking AMEX card to another Amazon account works?

Eli

General question about using Amex points directly in Amazon:

How does Amazon calculate the points? I want to order something with the total of $21.66 , but Amazon is taking 3,094 points. Does that make any sense?

Peretz770

Thanks JJ. That was awesome. Bought a misfit for half the price!!!!

ShmuliT

From Chat: The member of leadership has confirmed the threshold of 100,000 customers has been reached.

Larry

Thanks Dan, got now 2 pairs of Ecco shoes for $117

BrianS

Worked – Thanks Dan!! 100 dollar Southwest gift card for 70

JK

Seems to be dead. Didn’t work, chatted with rep, was told it was limited to 100K people and has been used up.

Avi

I just used it, limit is not up

Avi

It’s not working for me. I am chatting with Amazon and would like me to send them the direct link from amazon that I received. Any ideas?

Spoke

Thanks. Just starting working for me.

Eli

Still cant link the Blue Business Plus. Says AMEX reports no MR account.

GH

worked for my sister’s NON-prime account. it hadn’t worked on 7/6 when you first posted it. thanks!

Dave

Worked for me after not working previously!! thanks Dan!

FB

I chatted and the guy pasted instructions into chat box and below that it said:
In case the customer has issues with this promotion, the reason is likely because:
They are purchasing something that’s not directly being shipped by Amazon
The limit of the first 100,000 people to take advantage of this promotion has been reached
They redeemed Membership Rewards points towards the cost of an Amazon purchase within the past 12 months, in which case they not eligible

FB

And then he said that it expired July 11…

sysg1

i got it by sending a link to this post 🙂

sysg1

thanks dan for updating your post

jacob

How about the amex blue business card? the one that gave 20K points for spending 3k in 3 months? that has membership rewards but is not working on the amazon account?

Avi

Hello,

Amazon.com does not comment about rumors or speculative news reports.

I’m sorry I can’t provide any additional information. We hope to see you again soon.

Best regards,
Chandramani C
Amazon.com

rediplus

my guess is that if you have a new card and there are no MR points posted or even in pending amex is not linking it correctly to amazon so it doesn’t see it as an MR account and wont let you link it.

M

Where do you see the extension till 11/31 ???

JACOB

DIDNT WORK FOR ME YESTERDAY BUT NOW IT WORKED
THANKS TONS

Kelly

@Dan I tried applying the promo they told me I need to contact amex to activate this offer but they cant help me either

Kelly

Just an update they offered me a $30.00 credit on my account

Dee

I’m trying to add eligible cards (blue and everyday) to the membership rewards points program but keep getting an error that something went wrong. can anyone help with what i am doing wrong? I am not even up to trying the promo, I can’t link the card to my amazon account to purchase with points!

Rach

Messaged Amazon because it wasn’t working and they took off $30 from my most recent order.

Thanks!

moz

if it doesn’t work chances are you’re not buying something sold by amazon direct

Nikki

It wouldnt work for me initially and amazon customer service was suprisingly not helpful and couldn’t even explain to me why some get the offer and some don’t. But I just tried today and it worked. Score!!

Jorge

It just worked for me and I also received a $5 off GC Promo Code for Today automatically discounted. $60 Air BnB for $24.99

sharon

said 100,000 people have used it and it expired on the 11th. they are not budging.

Abraham

Where do you see that it has been extended until 7/31? I am chatting with Amazon now and the rep is saying it has not been extended and it was over on 7/11.

E

Is there a link to check if I’m targeted?

ASKS

Just got $60 $60 Dave and Busters GC! Thanks Dan

Sandra

It did not work for me 🙁

Any suggestions?

Ilan pollak
