Amex Offers: Spend $200 at Amazon get 1000 Membership Rewards (up to 3x)
Currently, there is a great Amazon Amex offer floating around that goes until 07/15/21 whereby you can earn a 1000 Amex points after spending $200. Annnnnnnnnnd, You can do this up to 3 times!
Even better…Amex and Amazon have another promo whereby you can get up to 40% off at Amazon by using just a single Amex points, yes just one point! ( Maxes out at $40 ).
The good news doesn’t stop there…I found certain categories are earning 8% cashback via TopCashBack. Let’s take a look at the offer, but first – a quick refresher on why I value Amex Offers so much.
Amex Offers and why I keep 7 Amex cards.
We have an entire post dedicated to Amex Offers, how they work, and why you can easily earn back your annual fee in statement credits or points. You can read it here. The long and short is that I earn 10s of thousands of Amex points a year off Amex Offers in addition to statement credits. The cumulative effect over the year is that much of total Amex annual fee bill ( in excess of $1200 ) is offset by using Amex Offers. Hopefully, with my posts you’ll be able to extract considerable value as well.
I find throughout the year the savings that can be had by adding Amex Offers to your targeted cards can outweigh your annual fee without taking any other benefits into consideration. Maybe not the entirety of the $1500+ that I pay in Amex Annual fees from my 7 cards, but every bit helps.
Here are the 7 American Express Cards that I keep and links to their current offers and why we have them in our wallet and recommend your consideration.
- American Express Platinum
- American Express Gold
- American Express Green
- American Express Business Platinum
- American Express Business Gold
- American Express Blue Business
- American Express Blue Business Plus
First, let’s take a look at the Amex Offer
I write about Amex Offers all the time because I think it’s a great way to offset your annual fee, and earn extra points and statement credits. I earn well into the 5 figures in bonus points every year this way, and helps me wrap my head around keeping 7 Amex cards and paying their annual fees. Here’s a look at the current Amazon offer:
- Can be 1 or more eligible purchases
- You can use this offer 3x
- Must be on eligible transactions at Amazon.com
- No corporate gift cards/ custom designed gift cards
- Offer not valid for Amazon Go, Amazon Local, Amazon Mechanical Turk, Amazon Home & Business Services, Amazon Currency Converter, Home Services, Prime Photos, Amazon Inspire, Amazon Video Direct, Amazon business, Amazon Global, or Amazon Drive. Excludes purchases made with Amazon Pay on third party sites
- Must be completed by 7/15/21
Next…Go here to see if you’re targeted to receive up to 40% off you Amazon order by using 1 Amex Point, capped at $40
The best part of this deal is that there isn’t a minimum amount of points you need to use to trigger the 40%, hence why only a single Amex Point will give you this Amazon offer. This is a limited offer and expires at 11:59PT on 6/30/21 or when 15k people have used the offer. The button will disappear when that happens. Make sure you read the terms and conditions below, but there are the main things to keep an eye on in my opinion
- MUST BE SHIPPED AND SOLD BY AMAZON!
- Other vendors will not trigger the credit
- Must use at least a single Membership Reward to make it work
- The credit is applied before taxes and fees
- Ends 6/30/21 at 11:59pm PST and is capped at $40
Finally – you can Stack with TopCashBack to earn up to 8% back
Stacking is the process whereby you can trigger more than one offer to earn even more points or cashback. This is a great opportunity to do so because the Amex offer is triggered simply when a purchase is processed from Amazon and hits your card. Since TopCashBack simply codes your purchase you can earn from the TopCashBack portal as well as the Amex bonus. It’s a fantastic win, win.
Here’s a look at the categories carrying the extra bonus
