Tomorrow is the last day to get a $25 Amazon credit for spending $75 at Amazon, provided you registered your American Express card for the promotion.
And tomorrow is also the last day to get 5X Ultimate Rewards points or 5% cash back for shopping at Amazon with your Chase Freedom card, provided you registered your Chase Freedom card for the 5X bonus.
But I Don’t Have Anything to Buy on Amazon?
Here’s how to get the $25 statement credit even if you don’t have anything to buy on Amazon by December 31, 2013.
If you don’t have anything to buy on Amazon by tomorrow, but if you usually shop on Amazon, it could make sense to buy gift cards with your Chase Freedom card to take advantage of the 5X Ultimate Rewards points bonus.
If you don’t shop regularly on Amazon, it likely does NOT make sense to buy gift cards just for the 5X Ultimate Rewards points bonus.
1. Buy Amazon Gift Cards
Link: Amazon Gift Cards
You can buy a $75 Amazon gift card before December 31, 2013.
You can add the gift card balance to your Amazon account and use it later because the balance in your Amazon account never expires.
This means that you could add the $75 Amazon gift card balance to your account today and use it AFTER December 31, 2013.
The $25 statement credit will post to your American Express account within a day.
You can use your Amazon gift card balance to buy anything on Amazon except other gift cards.
2. Buy Other Gift Cards
You can buy a lot of things on Amazon. And you can also buy gift cards to other stores on Amazon.
For example, you could buy a restaurant gift card from Amazon and take your partner out for a surprise meal.
Or you could stock up on gift cards to use later and save $25 now!
The $25 Amazon statement credit for every registered American Express card ends tomorrow.
And so does the 5X Ultimate Rewards points for your registered Chase Freedom card.
