How to Earn an Easy $20 Back

First things first: You won't get a $20 coupon for anything and everything at Amazon.com.

Instead, you'll get $20 to use at the Amazon Moments store. Amazon describes it as a “curated collection” of items rated 4-star and up. In reality, it includes almost anything you may want from Amazon, so you shouldn't have a hard time using that $20 credit.

To earn that $20 off, just add at least $50 of items to your Amazon cart. These items must be sold and shipped by Amazon to qualify for the discount. Check on the item page or in your cart – here’s what to look for:
Graphical user interface, text, application

While Amazon gift cards won’t qualify, you may be able to buy third-party gift cards. For example, you could buy AirbnbSouthwest AirlinesStarbucks, or Uber gift cards and get the $20 credit back.

Finally, just make sure you check out with your American Express credit card. And that's all it takes. there's no need to register. You do have to make the entire $50-plus purchase in one order – you can't split it up into two, $25 purchases and still trigger the $20 credit.

You've got until July 22, 2020 to make those qualifying purchases. And once you earn the credit, you'll have until Aug. 22, 2020 to use it. 


Bottom Line

If you're like us, you've already got $50 worth of stuff sitting in your Amazon cart. This new promotion makes it fairly easy to get $20 back.

  • The $20 credit is only good for the Amazon Moments store, which appears to be a bunch of random stuff that is mostly not priced very well. Not such a deal if you can only spend it on overpriced stuff you don’t really want, but you’ve got this credit……..
