Save 20% at Amazon with Just 1 Amex Membership Rewards Point!
Amazon and American Express keep teaming up to offer easy ways to save by using even a single American Express Membership Rewards point. And we are not mad about it.
Apply just a single Membership Rewards point to your cart, and you can get 20% off (up to $50) on $250 in purchases.
This promotion is targeted, and it appears that some users who have cashed in on a previous promo aren’t eligible. But the great news is that you can stack this discount with any coupons you may find, or even buy third-party gift cards.
This promotion first reported by Deals We Like technically ends July 16 but they could pull it faster, so try it soon! Here’s how it works:
How to Save 20% on Your Amazon Order
- First things first, you need an American Express card that earns Membership Rewards points. Co-branded cards from airlines or hotel chains won’t do the trick.
- You’ll need to link your Membership Rewards account with Amazon, which you can do by clicking here.
- The most important step: See if you’re eligible for this promotion.
- Add up to $250 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:
- When you’re ready to check out, choose your American Express card as payment and pay for at least a portion of your order with Membership Rewards points. For the best value, just type in “.01” under “Apply American Express Membership Rewards Points.” This will put a single point and unlock the 20% discount. Double-check to make sure it doesn’t default to paying for your order entirely with Amex points. A few Thrifty Traveler team members have noticed this.
- Finish your purchase and save money!
We all have plenty of items in our Amazon cart. Use this promo to save some big bucks by using just a single Amex point.
