amazon prime day discount

Amazon is doing another Prime Day(s) today and tomorrow, Oct 10 and 11.

Most important is that you get all the Pay with a Point discounts that you are eligible for.

Note that in 2023, there’s been one notable (negative) change in some cases, but not all!

Some accounts are getting targeted for a poor offer for the first time ever – 15% off, up to $15, when you use 714 points. But it gets worse. You don’t even get 1 cent per point at Amazon! So with the average point worth about 1.7 cents, you will come out at best even and at worst a bit behind.

However, in the very latest round, I’m again seeing 1 point.

American Express Membership Rewards “Pay One Point”

See if you are targeted. Deal varies by account.

Chase Ultimate Rewards “Pay One Point”

See if you are targeted. Deal varies by account.

Citi ThankYou “Pay One Point”

See if you are targeted. This may not currently be active but it’s worth checking.

Discover “Pay One Point”

See if you are targeted. This may not currently be active but it’s also worth checking.

What Can You Buy?

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

Third party gift cards sold by Amazon historically worked, but I’m hearing they might no longer work. You can try and see.

How to Checkout

Then, at checkout, make sure your Amex / Chase / Citi Discover 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, unless you are caving into that 714 point offer.)

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.
