If you’ve got some big Amazon purchases coming up (it’s the holiday season, after all), here are deals for you. You can save up to 20% off your order (up to a saving of $50) or $20 off an order of $100 or more when you pay with at least one Amex Membership Rewards point.

To qualify for these two new deals, you’ll need to have a card that earns Amex Membership Rewards points, like The Platinum Card® from American Express, the American Express® Green Card or other’s from our list of the best Amex cards, linked to your Amazon account. And although they’re targeted, I was able to sign up easily, so it’s worth checking your account.

Here’s what you need to know:

Save at Amazon with Amex Membership Rewards

These deals officially end on Dec. 31, 2019, but Amazon could end the promotion at any time. The two offers are as follows:

  • Save 20% off, up to a max of $50 savings when you redeem one Amex Membership Rewards point.
  • Save $20 off $100 in purchases when you redeem one Amex Membership Rewards point.

These deals are targeted but some readers are reporting being eligible for both offers.

To earn the discount you must:

  • Click the “Click to activate” button found here (you’ll need to be signed in to your Amazon account)
  • Spend on eligible products (sold and shipped by Amazon)
  • Use at least 1 Amex Membership Rewards point from an eligible linked card to pay for the purchase

You will see the savings applied at checkout. And remember that normally paying for Amazon purchases with Amex Membership Rewards points is a bad deal. Amex points are more valuable when you transfer them to travel partners, but in this case, using a single point to save up to 20% is a no-brainer.

Just note, this discount doesn’t apply to digital content and the discount may not be used for Amazon gift cards. That said, it’s possible you may get it to work for other third-party gift cards. I’ve used a similar deal in the past to save 20% off Rover.com gift cards and saved a bundle on pet-sitting. We were able to apply the 20% discount to Airbnb gift cards, pictured below:

I tried it with my Azn and my spouse and both of us got “You are not eligible for this offer.”

These comments do not go with this article. Very confusing.

Is this a one shot deal? Or can it be multiple purchases up to 250 total?

I can’t find anything that works. Tried Panera Bread gift card and toilet paper and some other items shipped by amazon. What do you suggest?

Just bought a $200 Southwest gift card and received the 20% off.

In order to qualify for the credit the item must be shipped and sold by Amazon. There are some items that qualify for even Amazon Prime shipping that aren’t sold by Amazon.
