Same deal (with a slightly lower max), new offer:
People are being targeted again for an offer of 20-40% off at Amazon when using at least one American Express Membership Rewards point. If you weren’t targeted last time – check again as more people have been offered this promotion today.
There’s a cap on total purchases which seems to be $30 off $150 (20% offer) or $40 off $100 (40% offer).
You do not need to spend it all on one purchase. It will be taken off each order until you’ve used your full deal as long as you use the Amex card and 1 point each time.

How to Register for the Deal?
The first step is to see if you are targeted.
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.
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 should be fine as well.

How to Checkout
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 like an Amex Gold Card (our review) and then try again tomorrow.
