[Amex Offer] Get 5,000 Points For An Amazon Prime Membership
Earlier this week, American Express added a great new offer that many people should be able to take advantage of. Spend $99 or more at Amazon on a Prime membership and get 5,000 American Express Membership Rewards Points. If you are not familiar, Amazon Prime gets you free 2-day shipping on eligible Amazon purchases along with a host of other benefits.
The offer seems to be widely available as it is pulling on all of my American Express personal and business credit cards that earn membership rewards points. The timing on this offer couldn’t be better for me either, as my prime membership is scheduled to renew on October 14th. I added this offer and updated my payment method to this card to secure the 5,000 bonus points.
The terms of the offer state that this promotion is valid until 1/31/2018, so if your Prime membership is scheduled to renew before then, or you are not yet an Amazon Prime customer, this is an incredible offer.
There are also rumors that you may be able to cancel your prime membership (which will be prorated) and then resubscribe with your enrolled card which would trigger the offer. Paid members who haven’t used their prime account benefits since renewal are eligible for a full refund. However, you can’t receive a refund if any of the household members have placed an Amazon Prime eligible order.
Where to find Amex Offers
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). If you see an offer you like, simply add the offer to the card and make a qualifying purchase at that business with your card. You should receive a statement credit for the offer within a few days of making a purchase.
I’m a fan of Amex offers because they’re basically free money, or in this case points, for shopping I am going to do regardless. Make sure to check your various American Express credit cards because each one can have different offers. However, it looks like this Amazon offer is widely available at the moment. The offers change almost daily, so add this one now before it disappears.
