$30 off on Amazon Using Just 1 Amex MR Point. If you have an American Express card you may be earning Membership Rewards points. View eligible Cards. Membership Rewards points can be used for a wide variety of things. The most lucrative use is for travel and the least lucrative (by that I mean never do it!) is for merchandise and gift cards. This Amazon deal is an exception.
By using one Membership Reward point you can get $30 off a purchase of $60 or more. You can add $60 worth of merchandise which must be sold and shipped by Amazon.com to your cart. Many third party gift cards are eligible also. I was able to purchase a $60 Whole Foods e-gift card (which I sent to myself) for $29.99 plus 1 MR point. Cha-ching! You can search for merchant gift cards here.
If your interested buy now
The terms and conditions say the promotion will end at 11:59 PT on 12/31/2017. I’ve seen these offers before and they have been ended early possibly because so many people take advantage of them so if you’re interested buy now.
How the deal works
- If you haven’t already linked your American Express card to your Amazon account, you can link here.
- Check to see if you are eligible for this offer here. If you are eligible you must click on the “Click here to activate” button.
- Go shopping and add $60 worth of merchandise (sold and shipped by Amazon) or a merchant gift card(s) to your cart.
- On the payment page, under Your credit and debit cards select your linked Membership Rewards earning credit card.
- Enter the number of points you want to use towards your purchase. I entered .01 (1 cent) which means 1 point will be applied. Do not pay with full points as this is a terrible value (and the subject of a future post).
- On the checkout page, you’ll see the 1 point applied and the $30 taken off. No promotion code is needed. You can pay the balance on your selected credit card or with your gift card balance.
