Amazon 40% Discount Offer With Discover

Amazon is offering a deal that gives you 40% off your purchase when you use at least 1 Discover point.

The max discount for this offer is $40 so if you’re trying to get the most out this deal, you should aim to spend around $100 total. Note that the discount can be applied to multiple purchases until the max discount of $40 is reached.

Other variations of the deal people are seeing:

  • Get 40% off your Amazon purchase when you use at least 1 Discover Checkout Bonus point at checkout (max discount of $20) – a $50 purchase maxes this promo out
  • Get $30 off $150 on Amazon when you use at least 1 Discover Cashback Bonus point at checkout
    • another version of this = Get $10 off $50
    • another version of this = Get $10 off $100

Like almost all Amazon promotions, this deal is targeted so check to see if you’re eligible via the link below.

How Do I Activate The Offer?

Activate Now [Amazon]

Ninja Note: Want to see more Amazon offers? Check out all other active Amazon deals here.

The link will bring you to the activation screen. The offer WON’T show up until you add a Discover card as a payment option and link your Discover Cashback Bonus point 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:

  1. Link your Discover credit card to your Amazon account if you haven’t done so
  2. Add your Discover Cashback Bonus account to Amazon if you haven’t done so
  3. Click the offer link above or click here to see if you’re targeted for the offer
  4. Add eligible products shipped and sold by Amazon to your shopping cart
  5. Proceed to checkout and select your Discover card as your payment method
  6. Select the amount of Discover points you’d like to use for the purchase (use the minimum amount of 1 point)
  7. Receive a 40% discount that will be automatically applied at checkout – no promo code needed

Adding A Discover Card To Your Amazon Account

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:

Linking Discover Cashback Bonus To Amazon

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 Discover Cashback Bonus points at Amazon since the redemption value is not great, but for this specific promotion you only need to use 1 Discover point to get the 40% 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 Discover Cashback Bonus 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 Discover 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 Discover 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.
