Update: The offer mentioned below has expired and is no longer available.
If you’re new to points and miles, you may think you can only earn them through introductory bonuses.
But, there are plenty of other ways to do so — an especially easy method is through Amex Offers. These offers are linked to your American Express cards and can save you money or get you bonus points for everyday purchases, including travel and shopping.
And right now, there are a couple of new Amex Offers for purchases at Amazon, making it very easy to earn some extra points.
Here’s what you need to know!
New Targeted Amex Offers
There seem to be several different types of Amex Offers available right now, so you’ll want to check to see which one you are targeted for, especially if you have multiple American Express cards in your wallet.
The first one is an offer for 1,000 Amex Membership Rewards points after spending $200 or more on purchases at Amazon. This offer expires on May 31, 2022, so if you see it on your card, add it right away!
The second offer is slightly different from the first — you’ll earn 5x Membership Rewards points per dollar spent on purchases at Amazon, up to $1,000. So, if you make a large purchase — greater than $200 in this case — you won’t earn any additional bonus points beyond the 1,000.
Here at Upgraded Points, we value Amex Membership Rewards Points at 2.2 cents each, making this haul worth $22 if you maximize the offer.
Both offers have restrictions and exclude corporate gift cards and custom-designed gift-card purchases.
Note that the offers are only valid when you purchase directly through Amazon.com. These offers won’t be triggered if you purchase with a third party or through international sites owned and/or operated by Amazon or websites affiliated with, linked to, or from Amazon.com.
Finally, these offers are not valid for Amazon Go, Amazon Local, Amazon Mechanical Turk, Amazon Web Services, Amazon Home & Business Services, Amazon Currency Converter, Home Services, Prime Photos, Amazon Inspire, Amazon Video Direct, Amazon business, Amazon Global, or Amazon Drive.

These are easy offers to take advantage of, especially if you shop regularly at Amazon. While 1,000 points may not seem like a lot — especially if you’re just starting out earning points and miles — they can add up very quickly and get you to your dream redemption in no time!
