Our Verdict

Great deal, surprised to see it again so soon. Expiration date is December 31st, 2019 so I doubt we will get the deal a second time this year (we got it twice (or three times really) last year).

There’s currently a $50 off $100 for Amex shop with points – banner pops up as you browse – YMMV!


William Charles this link is working again for me. The recenly posted one does not though. Interesting!


Opened Amazon cart and it showed a $20 of $50+ offer banner. I’m pretty sure I was targeted for the December round as well.


We have a separate post on that deal. Thanks.


Targeted on another 2 accounts. thank you for the new year gift amex


Thanks – was targeted and didn’t know


My sister and I both got the $30 offer, but have been unable to get it to apply at check out. So frustrating


Used both the 20% off and $30 off $60 on two separate transactions. 1MR each transaction. Thanks for saving me $80


Shame it wouldn’t stack with the Military offer –


Which gift cards work best that triggers this offer. I’m trying to get a Best Buy gift card. Anyone where have a=sucess in getting a best buy gift card for the $30 off?


I’ve done it a few times with Whole Foods Gift Cards (both physical and e-mail)


Darn, nothing. Maybe I’ll get targeted next round.
