American Express and Amazon are offering targeted discounts to customers who link their personal Amex cards to Amazon. The discounts range in amount but could be very significant depending on your targeted offer.

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know.

Amazon Offer Details

The first thing you’ll want to do is head over to this dedicated Amazon promotional page to see if you were targeted.

If you are eligible for this promotional offer, you must activate it in order to save money, so make sure to do so before making any purchases.

The amount of savings you can expect will vary based on the offer you’re targeted for. However, numerous consumers have reported saving anywhere from 10% to 50%often with a maximum discount of $80.

This promotion could result in significant savings, so check to see whether you’re eligible before making any Amazon purchases.

If you are targeted, ensure the products added to your cart are sold and shipped by Amazon (not all products on Amazon are), as third-party products won’t be eligible for the discounted savings.

When it’s time to check out, you’ll be given the option to pay with Amex Membership Rewards points. You need to pay with at least 1 point to activate the discount. While it is possible to use more than 1 point, it is recommended to use no more than a single point since your points can be far more valuable when transferred to a travel partner.

You should see the discount reflected once you apply 1 point to your order.

Hot Tip:

Deals may expire on a specific date or when a specific number of customers have redeemed the offer, whichever happens first, which is frequently the latter.

If you have multiple accounts in your household, it is worth checking each one to potentially stack savings.

Final Thoughts

Many consumers shop on Amazon regularly, and this new offer to pay with Amex Membership Rewards points and receive a discount can provide significant savings.

Be sure to link all of your Amex cards to see if you’ve been targeted, and then act quickly to utilize the discount!
