We keep 7 American Express Cards listed below:

- American Express Green
- American Express Business Platinum
- American Express Business Gold
- American Express Blue Business
- American Express Blue Business Plus
Go here to see if you’re targeted to receive up to 50% off you Amazon order by using 1 Amex Point, capped at $80
The best part of this deal is that there isn’t a minimum amount of points you need to use to trigger the 15% to 50% discount , hence why only a single Amex Point will give you this Amazon offer. This is a limited offer and expires at 12/31/21 or when 29,666 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 12/31/21 at 11:59pm PST and is capped at $80
- Or when 29,666 have used the offer…the button will disappear
Your offer will look something like this:
Don’t forget to check Amex Offers to see if you were targeted for 5x
These are pretty widespread so make sure you check your account prior to buying…
The biggest thing to note here…”SOLD BY AMAZON.COM” – I purchased AirPods Pro back in January for $209 and received a $40 discount. Just so you’re aware of where this deal sits, and to my knowledge the current price of $169.99 is about as low as Amazon has had them – if you were targeted for the $80 offer, you’d knock that down to just $89.99
At check out – you’ll want to apply a single Amex Point
You’ll then see that the price changes for your item – this is from when I did it in earlier in the year when the price was $209
You’ll see this reflected in both your order and summary before you pay for it. Note that taxes are not included in the 40% however, in this example, 40% of the purchase price exceeded the $40 max associated with the promo
