For a few years now, we’ve been seeing deals with Amazon and three of the major credit cards rewards banks – namely American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards points, and Citi ThankYou points.

Amazon’s “Use 1 Point” Deals

Right now, Amazon is back with what looks to be a few possible offers. I’m seeing that I am eligible for this one:

You can see if you are eligible here.

Apparently you might also (or instead) be targeted for 20% off up to $50 in savings.

How to Use the Deal?

Keep in mind that you’ll need to already have a Membership Rewards card linked to Amazon. If you haven’t yet, do so here.

Next, be SURE the item(s) you pick are sold and shipped by Amazon, else it won’t work.

Then, at checkout, make sure your Amex card is set for the payment method. At that point it will default to using points for the whole purchase. Change that.

You want to use *one point* for one cent off. (Don’t use more as the rate they give you per point is not very good.)

If the rest was done properly, you’ll see the discount off reflected on your checkout page.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The next time you checkout, be sure you aren’t paying with all point by default as Amazon changes your default payment method.

If you get a rock, you may want to remove all of your Amex cards from your Amazon wallet and then re-add an Amex Membership Rewards earning credit card.
