Get 30% to 40% Off At Amazon When Using 1 AMEX Point

Amazon is offering 30% to 40% off your order when you use at least one AMEX point at checkout. This also works on gift cards. See if you’re targeted for this offer below!

30%-40% Off Amazon With Amex Offer

There are actually two different offers people are getting:

  1. Get 30% off at Amazon (maximum discount of $50) with 1 AMEX point
  2. Get 40% off at Amazon (maximum discount of $50) with 1 AMEX point

Although both discounts maxes out at $50, the second offer is better since having 40% off requires orders totaling $125 or more to get the maximum value. If you get the 30% offer, you’ll need to spend at least $166.67 to get the full $50 discount.

How do I check if I’m targeted?

The link will bring you to the activation screen. The offer WON’T show up until you add an American Express card as a payment option and link your AMEX rewards account to Amazon. If you haven’t done this, go to the next sections in this post where I’ll show you how.

If you are linking your AMEX Membership Rewards account to Amazon for the first time then it can take a few days before you may become “eligible” for the promotion.

You can also try removing and re-adding your AMEX as a payment option to see if this will prompt “eligibility”.

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.


How do I add an American Express credit card as a payment option?

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 would never recommend using AMEX MR points at Amazon since the redemption value is poor, but here you only have to use 1 AMEX point to get the 20% discount.

  • The promotion code will expire concurrently. reserves the right to cancel or modify this offer at any time.
  • Offer is available by invitation only, is non-transferable, is not redeemable for cash, and may not be resold.
  • Offer applies only to the purchase where Membership Rewards points are used for at least a portion of the purchase and the promotion code is applied at checkout.
  • Offer only applies to products sold by (Look for “sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC” on the product detail page.) Products sold by third-party sellers or other Amazon entities will not qualify for this offer, even if “fulfilled by” or “Prime Eligible”.
  • Limit one promotion code per Membership Rewards eligible card.
  • Offer may not be combined with other offers.

The Bottom Line

Keep in mind, you don’t have to spend the full amount in a single purchase. You can break them up into smaller orders until you reach the full discount of $50.

This will also work on third-part gift cards, but not on Amazon gift cards.

This is a very hot deal! We usually get 20% off promotions from Amazon and AMEX – to get 30% off at Amazon is huge (40% for some lucky ninjas)! I’ve written about similar Amazon deals.

  1. On previous deals, I was able to get promo on different accounts with same credit card. Recently, that hasn’t been working. Anyone recently had success receiving promo on different accounts with same credit card?

    • That method works for me randomly too. I find it more consistent by doing what TMN says, deleting the card, adding it back, enrolling the rewards to Amazon, and then clicking the link he provides. Doesn’t work all the time though. Maybe 75%.

  2. added an american express card, but offer didn’t show up right away. after 3 days tried again and now the discount is showing.

  3. What happens if you don’t use the entire $50? Will the remaining promo amount apply to your next order?

  4. I was also targeted, but couldn’t figure out why the discount didn’t show up during checkout… then I realized they weren’t “sold and shipped by Amazon” 🤦‍♂️

    • As long as it shows shipped and sold by Amazon it should work for any order (as long as you got the offer in your account).
