Amazon Amex Membership Rewards

  • This offer may be targeted. Go to this link, sign into your Amazon account to see if you’re targeted.
  • Click on the “Click here to activate” button – This credit will stay active on your account until the promotion expires or the maximum discount of $50 per customer is redeemed.
  • Add one or more eligible products sold and shipped by to your cart. – Look for “sold by” or “sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC” on the product detail page.
  • Check out with your American Express Card and use Membership Rewards points for at least a portion of your order.

Here’s how it looks when you order something that qualifies for the discount. This is something I was going to buy anyway. I only used $1 worth of Amex Membership Rewards points which is equal to 143 points and saved $42. That’s an amazing deal!

I have a gift card balance that’s why my order total was $0.00

Bottom Line:

If you have Amex membership rewards points, it would make sense to link your Amex account with Amazon and use as little points as possible on your next purchase to get 20% off your total order up to $50. This is a pretty good deal since you don’t have to pay for the entire order with Amex points. You can technically use only ONE Amex point and still receive the 20% credit.
