American Express just added a great new Amex Offer, allowing you to earn an additional 5x points on all Amazon purchases heading into the holiday shopping season – adding up to 6x points total!
This bonus offer for spending is capped at earning 2,500 bonus points, which works out to $500 in spending at Amazon. It doesn’t expire Dec. 26, 2021 – but add it to your Amex cards quick, as American Express often pulls these offers sooner.
Amex Offers like this one are targeted, so not everyone will see them in their accounts. And you need an American Express card like the Platinum Card from American Express or the American Express Gold Card that earns Membership Rewards points. A co-branded Delta or Hilton card won’t cut it.
Thrifty Tip: Have the Blue Business Plus Credit Card From American Express? That card already earns 2x points on all purchases, so adding this offer brings it to 7x at Amazon!
Luckily, this one seems to be fairly widely available. Just log into your American Express accounts and scroll through the available offers to see if you’re targeted. If you’ve got several American Express cards, many (or all!) of them may be targeted with this offer.
Want to save big while you earn bonus points? You may be able stack this offer with a big discount by applying just 1 Amex Membership Reward point to your cart to save up to 40%.
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. It’s 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. In this case, you’ll need to book directly with Delta for the cashback credits to kick in.
You should receive a statement credit for the offer within a few days of making a purchase, though in some cases it can take several weeks. And keep in mind you don’t need to hit the spending threshold in one shot – you can spread it out over several transactions.

This is a great way to earn some bonus points on your Amazon shopping. And with the holiday shopping season gearing up – and Black Friday just around the corner – it’s well-timed, too.
Add this offer to your cards now before it disappears – and make your Amazon purchases before Dec. 26 to get those bonus points!
