Amazon: $20/$40 Off $50/$100 When You Use 1 Membership Rewards Point [YMMV]

The Offer

Direct link to offer (affiliate link here and below)

  • Amazon is offering $20 off $50 or $40 off $100 when you use one Membership Rewards point (different people have different offers. Some people are not eligible. If you’re not eligible follow these steps)

The Fine Print

  • This is a limited time offer. The promotion will end on the earlier of (a) 11:59 PT on 3/31/2020, or (b) the time at which 200,000 customers have redeemed the offer. The promotion button will expire concurrently.
  • Amazon.com reserves the right to cancel or modify this offer at any time.
  • Offer applies only to the purchase of at least $50 of eligible products, where Membership Rewards points are used for at least a portion of the purchase and the promotion is applied at checkout.
  • Offer only applies to products shipped and sold by Amazon.com. Products sold by third-party sellers or other Amazon entities will not qualify for this offer, even if they are “fulfilled by Amazon.com” or “Prime Eligible”.
  • Maximum benefit you may receive from this offer is $20 per eligible Membership Rewards enrolled card per one account
  • Offer may not be combined with other offers.
  • Shipping charges may apply to discounted promotional items.
  • Offer does not apply to purchase of digital content.
  • Offer discount will be allocated proportionally among all promotional items in your original order. If any of the items in your original order are subsequently returned, your refund will equal the original price of the product, less the proportional amount of the discount. The total discount on the unreturned amount of your original order will then be less than $20.
  • Promotional codes (including those placed directly in accounts) may not be redeemed for Amazon Gift Cards.
  • This promotion is available only to Amazon.com customers with an eligible Membership Rewards points card issued in United States.
  • If you violate any of these terms, the offer will be invalid.

F.A.Q’s

Do you need prime to do this deal?

No, prime is not necessary

Why isn’t it working for me?

This offer is targeted, but you can check these things:

  • Make sure you’ve activated the offer first.
  • Make sure your Membership Rewards account is linked to your Amazon account (do that here).
  • Make sure you’re applying at least one Membership Rewards point at checkout.
  • Try removing all of your Membership Rewards cards, then adding one back and linking it again. (original post)
  • Bonus option: You can try removing all credit cards on your Amazon account apart from one Membership Rewards card. This has worked in the past, so maybe it’ll work for this.

Can you use this across multiple accounts?

It should work once on each account. Hard to know for certain that Amazon won’t have a problem with that.

Can I pay with my Amazon gift card balance in conjunction with Shop with Points?

Yes. Check out the post How to Use an Amazon Gift Card with a Shop-with-Points Order for 3 methods:

  1. Gift card balance is less than the purchase amount.
  2. Apply a gift card and it ‘unlocks’ your gift card balance.
  3. Set the points card as your default payment method.

Our Verdict

This deal works on third party gift cards, but presumably not Amazon or Visa gift cards. Samples gift cards available on Amazon:

Thanks Doc! Was able to do this on both mine and my wife’s account. $50 lowes for $30!

Was able to do this again following the $50 off 250 deal this last month. Amex/Amazon just giving money away…

How do you get 50 off 100?

Or if it is actually 40 off 100, do you need to make 2 separate purchases?

“Thank you for your interest in this offer. Unfortunately, you are not eligible for this invitation-only offer.”

I guess I wasn’t invited to the party.

Ditto, but I’ll try relinking and see if that works.

This has been happening to me since I used one offer in Nov (AmEx). I tried all the “tricks,” too.

I never, ever get the good Amex Offers on my credit cards, but I always seem to be targeted for these Amazon promos. I’ll take it! Thanks!

The $100 purchase for $40 off is a misprint. This is not an option. Not listed anywhere on the link and it doesn’t work at checkout. That said, $20 off $50 worked beautifully. Thanks Doc!

Worked for me, got a raclette grill that I’ve wanted to buy for a long time 🙂 $40 off $100.

How did you get the 40 dollars to apply?

Just the way they describe above: clicked on “Direct link to offer”, then clicked “Activate”, added the item I wanted to my cart, picked Amex card and used $0.01 to apply to my order. -$40 appeared automatically. If that doesn’t work for you, try removing the Amex card and adding it again.

This is just weird: they’ve started this promo while extending the previous one? Well, OK, fine with me. 🙂 I manage my family’s 5 Amazon accounts and 4 of us were targeted last month and 3 this month. It all seems quite random as to WHO gets targeted. Our 1 prime member was targeted both times, but I have no idea if that’s meaningful. We’ll happily take any free money they want to give us.

I have them available on Discover, Chase Freedom, Chase Amazon, and AmEx. However, nothing is working for Amazon. I tried relinking AmEx again yesterday. Nope.

Where do these offers show up in accounts? Occasionally I am able to use the links, but have not figured out how get targeted for them.

Has this offer worked for anyone that just did the expired offer? Doesn’t seem to be working for me.

Update: This promotion worked for a few Amazon accounts I have that DID NOT use the previous promotion.

Not eligible for this one. I was targeted/used the 20% one last month.
