Just last month, Amazon announced two awesome promotions for American Express Membership Reward members. This was a Black Friday and Cyber Monday special, with the offer expiring on Dec. 2, 2019. Well, it looks like for those who missed out, the offer has been extended through Dec. 31, 2019. Even if you already used this promotion back in November, check to see if you are eligible again.

With this offer, if you use just 1 Membership Reward point at check out you’ll receive either $20 off a $100 purchase or 20% off your purchase, up to $50 off.

The $20 off promotion seems to be the more popular offer.

But the 20% off offer is much better!

Like many Amazon promotions, this one is also unfortunately targeted. Although, if you weren’t originally targeted, make sure to check again as my husband was eventually eligible even though he originally was not. You can check to see if you are eligible here.

Steps to take advantage:

  • If you haven’t already linked your American Express card to your Amazon account, you can do that here.
  • Activate the offer in your Amazon account
  • Shop at and add $100 or more worth of products to your shopping cart for the $20 off promo to work. Note: All products must be sold and shipped by Many merchant gift cards work as well as Amazon gift cards, so you can go ahead and search for merchant gift cards here.
  • On the payment page, select your linked Membership Rewards earning credit card. At the bottom of the payment page you’ll see all your linked accounts where you can use points (Chase and Amex). Select your American Express Membership Rewards Points account and enter the number of points you want to use towards your purchase. Since I do not like redeeming my points at Amazon (due to the low redemption value), I entered just 1 cent which means 1 point will be applied. For the promotion to apply, the minimum amount required is only 1 pointDo not do full points as it is not a good value!

See if you are eligible for $30 off $60 promotion

In addition to the promotion above, there is also another Amex Membership Reward money saving offer that will give you $30 off a $60 purchase. This one also expires Dec. 31, 2019 and if eligible, you can actually take advantage of both offers. You can check your eligibility for this particular promotion here.


Remember, all you have to do is apply one Amex Membership Reward point to receive the discount which is great. You can even still use any gift cards tied to your account to pay for the rest of the total amount. With the holidays coming up and Amazon running a 12 Days of Deals promotion, this is a great way to save more money on your purchases.

I’ve been an Amazon Prime member for many years and was always eligible for these special promotions. For several years now I can’t seem to get eligible for any of these promotions. Do you have any clue as to why I am no longer eligibile, and whether there is anything I can do to get on the eligibility list again. I buy tons of items on Amazon. Thanks!
