Earn 3x Amex Membership Rewards Points on Amazon Prime Day Purchases
Amazon Prime Day is still going, and American Express is now offering 3x points on all Amazon purchases. This offer may be targeted, though it appears nearly everyone may be eligible for the offer to earn 3x points. So if you’ve got an American Express Platinum, Premier Rewards Gold or another American Express card that earns Membership Rewards points, check to see if you can cash in on this offer.
If you haven’t used Amex Offers before, simply log into your American Express account and scroll down near the bottom of the screen and there should be a box called Amex Offers & Benefits (this is available through the Amex mobile app as well). Once you see the Amazon offer listed below, simply add it to your card and start shopping.
It also appears you can stack this offer with another great offer we covered earlier. You can use as little as one Membership Reward point toward your Amazon purchase to get 20 percent off. This 3x Amex points offer technically expires Aug. 28th, but Prime Day runs through Tuesday (ending 2 a.m. CST, actually). So you need to act fast if you want to earn extra points on the big Amazon sales. There are some incredible sales you should seize on here.
Prime members can buy Bose QuietComfort 25 noise-canceling headphones for just $125. Several members of the Thrifty Traveler team swear by these headphones for travel, and this is the best price we’ve ever seen on them. They normally sell for $198.
Amazon also has some Samsonite spinner luggage sets on sale for as much as 70% off. If you are in the market for new luggage, it isn’t going to get cheaper than this.
There’s a great, high-capacity battery to keep your devices charged while on the road on sale for just $30.79. The Anker PowerCore Ultra High Capacity Portable Charger can top up even an iPhone X five to six times before needing to be recharged.
And if you’re traveling with a little one in tow, check out the Pockit Lightweight Stroller on sale for 20% off.
Of course, there’s much more on sale, from TVs to home electronics to everyday items. And any purchase will qualify for this offer.
