Last week I wrote about a great opportunity to save $30 on a $60 Amazon purchase, which I know many of you took advantage of. If you haven’t yet taken advantage of that promotion it’s still available. And if you have, there’s yet another great bonus that will save you $25 on a $50 Amazon purchase if you have a card that accrues Membership Rewards points.
Best of all, the two offers are combinable, so for some this will be an opportunity to save $55 on a $60 Amazon purchase.
This is incredible, as savings with Amazon are basically good as cash to me.
Recapping the previous Amazon deal: $30 off a $60 purchase
The previous promotion (which is still available) offers $30 off a $60 or more purchase with Amazon. Here are the instructions for taking advantage of this offer:
1. Add $60 or more of eligible products sold and shipped by Amazon.com to your shopping cart.
2. Under “Choose a payment method,” select your Membership Rewards eligible American Express Card and pay for at least a portion of your order with Membership Rewards points, then click “Use this payment method.”
3. Enter the promo code AMEX17PRIME in the box provided on the checkout page, then click “Apply.”
4. Up to $30 of savings will be reflected on the final order checkout page.
After you’ve added at least $60 of eligible items to your cart, go to the “Payment method” section and make sure you select an Amex card that accrues Membership Rewards points, and is also enrolled in the pay with points option. I recommend selecting just a penny as the value for which you want to redeem points. Then enter AMEX17PRIME in the “add a gift card or promotion code” box.
As I explained, there are potentially some reasons you could have issues with this promotion:
- You’re purchasing something that’s not directly being shipped by Amazon
- The limit of the first 100,000 people to take advantage of this promotion has been reached
- You’ve redeemed Membership Rewards points towards the cost of an Amazon purchase within the past 12 months, in which case you’re not eligible
- You’re not an Amazon Prime member
The new Amazon deal: $25 off a $50 purchase
Doctor of Credit shares the details of yet another great offer. If you took advantage of the previous offer, this is an opportunity to save $25 off a $50 purchase. If you didn’t take advantage of the previous offer, you can potentially combine both offers and save $55 on a $60 Amazon purchase.
First follow this link to see if you’re eligible for the offer. On that page click the “Click here to qualify” button. If you’re eligible, it should say that the coupon has been clipped. If you’re not eligible, it will say that you’re not eligible. There’s no guarantee you’ll be eligible, though this does seem to be pretty widely targeted, at least.
I was eligible for this offer despite the fact that I also took advantage of the last promotion. With that in mind, here are the steps of using the offer:
- Click on the button below to activate this promotion credit. Note that you will NOT receive the credit unless you click on this button.
- Add $50 or more of eligible products sold and shipped by Amazon.com to your shopping cart.
- Under “Choose a payment method,” select your Membership Rewards eligible American Express Card and pay for at least a portion of your order with Membership Rewards points, then click “Use this payment method.”
- Up to $25 of savings will be reflected on the final order checkout page if the items in your order are eligible for the promotion credit.
It’s worth checking to see if you’re eligible for this offer. If you are, this is a great opportunity to get half off a purchase with Amazon. And if you haven’t taken advantage of the previous offer either, you can potentially get a crazy $55 off a $60 purchase.
Were you able to take advantage of either or both of these offers?
