For a limited time, you can get 50% off your next Amazon order by using just 1 Chase Ultimate Rewards point. The offer is targeted, but if you’re not eligible, there’s still a way to get the discount.

Amazon “Chase 50% Off” Promo
Prime Day isn’t arriving until July 11-12, but there are deals happening right now to save you big money at Amazon.
Amazon and Chase are back with another promotion that lets Chase cardholders with an Ultimate Rewards account save on their Amazon orders. This offer gives Chase card members the opportunity to get 50% off, up to $60, when they use just one Chase Ultimate Rewards Point.
There are different variations of this deal. Some readers have been offered $15 off a $50 purchase when they redeem at least one point.
How To Activate The Offer
The link below bring you to the activation screen and tell you whether or not you’ve been targeted. The offer won’t show up until you add a Chase card as a payment option and link your Chase Ultimate Rewards account to Amazon. If you haven’t done this, go to the next sections in this post where I’ll show you how.
Here’s the process for the discount to apply at checkout if you’re eligible:
- Link your Chase credit card to your Amazon account if you haven’t done so.
- Add your Chase Ultimate Rewards points account to Amazon if you haven’t done so.
- Wait 24 hours and then click the offer link above or click here to see if you’re targeted for the offer
- Add $50 or more of eligible products shipped and sold by Amazon to your shopping cart
- Proceed to checkout and select your Chase card as your payment method
- Select the amount of Chase points you’d like to use for the purchase (use the minimum amount of 1 point)
- Receive a 50% discount off, up to $60, that will be automatically applied at checkout – no promo code needed
How do I add a Chase credit card as a payment option?
Direct Link to Add Credit Card [Amazon]
You can also go there manually to add a credit card by going to “Your Account”, then “Payment options”, and then entering your credit card information:
When you are going through this process, be sure to select no when Amazon asks you if you want to use your points as the default payment for future purchases.
I wouldn’t recommend using your Chase points at Amazon since the redemption value is not great, but for this specific promotion you only need to use 1 Chase point to get the $15 discount.
What other details do I need to know?
The most important one to remember is that the items need to be sold AND shipped by Amazon. How can you tell?
Chances are that the item is shipped by Amazon if it offers Prime Delivery, but it still could be sold by a third-party seller. To check that Amazon is selling and shipping it, check for this statement near the price tag. Here’s an example where you can find it:
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need Amazon Prime to do this deal?
No, this deal is possible with any Amazon account.
Why isn’t the deal working for me?
Make sure you’ve followed each step outlined above. If you’re linking your Chase Ultimate Rewards account to Amazon for the first time then it can take a few days before you may become “eligible” for the promotion. Wait a few days and try the activate the offer again.
If you’ve done everything mentioned and are still not getting the deal to work, it means your account is not targeted right now.
Will it work if I did a similar deal in the past?
Yes, but sometimes you need to “clear” your account from the past deal. Try removing and re-adding your Chase card as a payment option to see if this will prompt “eligibility”.
If that still doesn’t work, try the link again in a couple of days to see if this works.
These offers can open up over time so you can always check later if it does not work out this time around (it took me 6 days from re-adding my Chase card)
Can I buy gift cards with this offer?
Amazon gift cards are explicitly excluded.
However, Amazon also sells many other third-party gift cards and those should all work! Third-party gift cards sold on Amazon include Netflix, Uber, Starbucks, and Google.

The Bottom Line
This is one of the best Amazon discounts currently available. A 50% discount up to $60 is an extremely generous promotion.
Personally, I always need something to get at Amazon, but if you don’t, consider purchasing a discounted gift card for future use. You’re banking the savings for later.
I always say on this site, saving money is making money.
