EDIT: Offer back again, this time up to $100 back instead of $50. DEAL CAN BE USED ONLY ONCE, SO MAXIMIZE YOUR SAVINGS. Credit to Ids337 for bumping this back up!

Don't just have the card linked, need to also be enrolled in using AMEX Membership points on Amazon. You can do that in the settings. This might help those getting its not available to you.

https://www.amazon.c...ode=17170797011

- 1 - Click the button below to activate this offer on your account. This credit will stay active on your account until the promotion expires or the maximum discount of $50 per customer is redeemed.


- 2 - Add one or more eligible products sold and shipped by Amazon.com to your cart. Look for "sold by Amazon.com" or "sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC" on the product detail page.


- 3 - Check out with your American Express Card and use Membership Rewards points for at least a portion of your order. Learn more about applying Membership Rewards points here.


- 4 - Come back to Amazon.com and get 20% off your purchases when you shop with Membership Rewards points. No need to reactive this credit on your next order, savings will be reflected at checkout.

Those with American Express cards linked to their Amazon account and are eligible for this offer, spend at least .01 cent of your rewards balance with an order and receive an extra 20% up to $100 per member. Order must be fully paid with the eligible American Express card.


July 12th edit: Thanks for bringing this back! Funny as I participated and then remembered I had posted this originally to come back and see it bumped.



This order included 8 pre-order games and 1 order of $17 worth of clothes.



Item subtotal: $496.77

I recently got $25 off my order of $50+ with AMEX. 

 

This would be a nice bonus. 

 

Thanks.

If you are eligible, activate the deal first.  

 

When you check out, choose your American Express card, click the pay with points option and use at least .01 cent worth of points.  When you click ok, on the right you should see AMEX 20% Discount prior to actually confirming the order. 

 

You can make multiple orders up to $50 total discount from AMEX.  

 

Does that all make sense?

When you click the link, there should be an activate button at the bottom to add the offer to your account if you are eligible.

There is a 15% off toys (max discount of $15) that stacks with the 20% off. Works with Lego products.

This deal is back and the Maximum Discount is $100.  I'm combining this with Amazon Prime Pre-Order Video Game Discount of 20% and now I'm getting an Additional 20% off by redeeming 1 American Express Membership Reward Point.

 

I've pasted my order Summary below and the Terms & Conditions

 

Not sure how you can beat redeeming 1 AMEX Reward point for up to $100

 

Good Luck

I was going to start a new thread, but saw this thread was still active from last October.  The deal isn't limited to Video games even thought that is what I bought.  So as long as it sold by Amazon it should work as long as it's not on the excluded item list

It is an awesome offer but you have to have that specific amex card to get in on the deal. Membership rewards card. Many of us don't have that one. Wife and I have 2 amex cards between us and neither are that variant. Prob why there's not much fanfare

There is also a buy $60, get $30 off promo for AMEX members using rewards points.

 

https://www.amazon.c...ode=17020113011

 

This is an invitation only offer. To receive your promotion credit you must: Click on the button below to activate this promotion credit and apply points to your next order. Note that you will NOT receive the credit unless you click on this button. Add $60 or more of eligible products sold and shipped by Amazon.com to your shopping cart. Your Membership Rewards points will be temporarily set as your payment method at checkout. To redeem this offer, you must pay for at least a portion of your order with Membership Rewards points. Up to $30 of savings will be reflected on the final order checkout page if the items in your order are eligible for the promotion credit.

 

The offer says it's invitation only, but I was still able to use it just fine without an invite (YMMV though).  If you can find a filler item and have prime, you can pre-order a $60 game for ~$24.

Thank you so much for this $30 off $60 link! I used this deal and the prime 20% discount to pre-order Super Smash Brother Ultimate for $18 + tax!

 

I also used the 20% off rewards/points offer + the prime 20% discount to pre-order SNK 40th Anniversary for $24 + tax.

Yeah, I thought that the calculation was 20% off of the total after the coupon had been applied (60-30)*.80=24, but it's actually 20% off of the total before the coupon is applied (60*.80)-30=18, making this deal even better (if you qualify for it).

I was hoping that both Amex deals were stackable, but you can only choose one of them per transaction. It's still a great deal.

Thank you so much!  Finally pulled the trigger on an Xbox One X for $399 after the discount was applied and used my amazon gift card balance to pay the balance.

Great deal, got $100 off a Sonos Play 5 and wife got $100 off a Sonos Playbase.  Those are rarely on sale so timing was great.
