Select American Express cardholders can save up to $30 on $60+ purchases at Amazon.com when using at least one Membership Reward point.
You can check if your account is targeted at this link. You only need to use a single Membership Reward (1 point = .01 cents) in order to qualify for the $30 discount.
The only restriction on this offer is that the $60+ must be on items sold and shipped by Amazon.com. Thankfully, there are a ton of items sold and shipped by Amazon. The offer is valid through December 31, 2019.
My wife and I recently bought an Amazon Fire Stick 4k and another item for just $31. And, they should’ve cost us $61!
The Fire Stick alone was going to run us $40. I used just one Membership Reward, worth a measly penny, and saved $30!
Even after you’ve taken advantage of this offer, there are several other ways to earn points when shopping at Amazon.com.
The first way is using the shopping portal, Ratuken (formerly known as Ebates). Even though Ratuken is typically a cashback portal, new Ratuken members that hold an American Express Membership Rewards earning card can choose to earn Membership Reward points when signing up.
There are also Amazon.com American Express Offers from time to time. Right now, there’s an offer where you can earn one extra Membership Reward on every purchase through the end of September.
Chase Freedom, a card with rotating quarterly bonuses, has done an Amazon.com bonus before. In December of 2014, Chase Freedom cardholders could earn 10x points at Amazon.com. Even though it’s been a few years, you never know when other bonuses like this will pop up.
Using credit cards to save money on everyday purchases is almost as much fun as using them to travel for less.
Amazon.com is one of the most popular merchants in the country, so keeping an eye out for how to maximize spending with them is important for everyone.
