Awesome Targeted Deal: Up to 50% Off at Amazon With 1 Amex Membership Rewards Point

Talk about an amazing deal – you can get $30 off a $60+ Amazon purchase when you use 1 Amex Membership Rewards point and put the rest on a qualifying Amex card.

This deal is targeted. You can check your account at this link to see if you’re eligible.

It was in my account, so I immediately got a $60 Whole Foods gift card for only $29.99. That’s 50% off!

The deal works on items sold and shipped by Amazon, and excludes digital content. I love easy wins like this.

This deal is good through December 31st, 2019, which makes me think Amex won’t offer it again this year. While that’s a bummer, Chase and Citi have had similar deals recently, so I’m hopeful they’ll pop up. Even Discover sometimes has Amazon promotions.

Like most Amazon deals, this one’s targeted. If it’s available in your account, you can check and activate it here.

I have a 50/50 chance with these deals for some reason, but when I looked – there it was. I made quick work out of buying a $60 Whole Foods gift card for $29.99 (though many other gift cards are also available).

Boom, half off

Of course, you can also buy any item sold and shipped by Amazon. Just use 1 Amex Membership Rewards point as partial payment, and put the rest on one of your Membership Rewards-earning card.

I used my Blue Business Plus Amex (learn more here) for this deal, and got 2X points for the purchase, as well as the $30 discount.

Within minutes, the gift card arrived in my inbox. Unreal savings – that equates to 50% off. If you have the deal in your account, I’d check and use it ASAP, as sometimes these deals get pulled early.

Bottom line

I love low-hanging fruit like this. Anything that saves money on stuff I’m gonna buy anyway, especially when it’s a 50% discount, is too good to pass up.

And if you shop on Amazon a lot, install the Honey browser extension, which hunts down coupon codes and alerts you to historic prices, as well as cheaper prices from other sellers. It’s helped me often, and doesn’t interfere with shopping portal purchases, in my experience.

Enjoy the savings if you got this deal! 📦
