Amazon and American Express have just launched a promotion that doesn’t appear to be targeted. This is a bit different than previous promotions we’ve seen between Amazon and Amex, but it still has the potential to be useful.
With this promotion you can get $20 off at Amazon when you make a single purchase of $50 or more with an Amex card by July 22, 2020. To take advantage of this promotion:
- Purchase items worth $50 or more using your American Express consumer card on Amazon; products need to be shipped and sold by Amazon.com or Amazon Digital Services LLC in order to qualify; purchases of Amazon e-gift cards don’t qualify, but other third party gift cars should qualify
- Receive a confirmation email with the reward link once your order has shipped
- Follow instructions on redemption link to purchase from the Moments store; the $20 credit needs to be redeemed by August 22, 2020, through the Amazon Moments store, which includes thousands of items rated four stars or more
There’s nothing in the terms indicating that this offer is targeted, so while you’ll only receive the $20 credit after the fact, it does seem like it should work. I’ve made a purchase and haven’t yet received anything, but based on the terms I would imagine it’s still coming.
This is easy enough to take advantage of, especially since it can be as easy as buying a third party gift card from a company like Uber, Southwest Airlines, Airbnb, Whole Foods, DoorDash, Starbucks, etc.
There are some limitations with this Amazon and Amex promotion, but spending $50+ with Amex should score you $20 off a future purchase from the Amazon Moments store. If you’re going to spend $50+ with Amazon anyway, then taking advantage of this should be a no brainer.
