American Express and Amazon constantly run promos allowing you to save $20 to $30 (or 20% to $30) on Amazon purchases by applying credit card point. Chase and Citi have entered the fray, too. And now it's your turn to save big, Capital One cardholders.
You can currently get $20 off when you buy at least $80 of items by applying just 1 Capital One point. This is one of the best ways to save on Amazon purchases, and it's easy to maximize.
To get started, just link your eligible Capital One card to your Amazon account – plenty of Amazon cards are able to use points toward Amazon purchases. From there, you just need to activate this promo via this link before you check out.
Amazon first added the option to use Capital One points toward purchases last year. And while you shouldn't blow a ton of Capital One points on your Amazon cart, using 1 point is enough to unlock $20 in savings. Doctor of Credit first reported this deal.
This promotion runs through Sept. 30 and it's targeted, so not every single Capital One cardholder will qualify to get $20 off. If you haven't already enrolled your Capital One card to your Amazon account to shop with points, the offer will come up as not available.

While Amazon gift cards won’t qualify, other third-party cards should. For example, you could buy Airbnb, Southwest Airlines, Starbucks, or Uber gift cards and trigger the $20 discount.
