For the past few days there has been a lot of buzz around Amazon offering 20% off up to $100 when paying with AMEX membership reward points. Well I finally took advantage of it and saved my $100! I had a few items I needed like air filters and some new pyrex bowls, and then bought a bunch of AMEX gift cards because they are always useful to make sure I got the full $100.
Now in order to do this you have to register first via this link. Some people may not be eligible. You have to have a AMEX card with membership rewards available to be eligible. You have to make sure you click pay with an AMEX card and then use a least one of your AMEX points to pay. It will default to use points for the entire purchase, but that is not a good value. Just switch it to 1 point.
Now when I originally went though it yesterday, it wasn’t applying 20% off to the entire purchase as you can see below. I then realized that some or my purchases did not follow the rules from the aforementioned link and were not fulfilled by Amazon. I got some new items and then boom, $100 off.
My wife’s AMEX account is also linked to Amazon so we will be finding a few more things to buy to save 20%.
