Unfortunately, not eligible here.

Only targeted for Pet Products and CDs and Vinyls

Yeah, as stated seems limited to 1st purchase as I am only seeming musical instruments

Only CDs and Video Games for me. Is reselling Nintendo switch still a thing?

Perseid Meteor Bath

I also got one for appliances: AXPAPPLIANCE

Only pet products here.. I don’t even have a pet..

I pulled automotive, pets, and video games in the Amazon slot game, lol

ETA: Added Software and Tires on second attempt

Looks like I got Automotive (AMEXAUTO), business industrial and scientific supplies (AMEXBIZ), luxery beauty (AMEXLUX) and tires (AMEXTIRES). Heck of a mixed bag there.

Doc, when I clicked your direct link, it showed 30% (up to $15) off in select new categories.

Missing this one: Major Appliances
Enter promo code AXPAPPLIANCE at checkout

I’m trying to meet a spending requirement on an authorized user cc. but it seems like I can’t use points on Amazon if I pay with the authorized user card. Anybody know of a workaround?

Reload (or purchase) your Amazon gift card for what your total comes to after the discount and after applying 1MR point. Then try checking out again and your Amazon gift card balance should be deducted first. Just don’t make your gift card balance higher than what you are paying on the transaction.

Thanks! I’ll give it a try.

Wow. On wife’s account she got: Audio, Baby, CDs and Vinyl, Furniture, Home Entertainment, Home improvement, tires, Lawn and Garden, Instruments, Sports, and Video Games.

I got a rock.

I don’t get “offer good while supplies last.” Is Amazon going to run out of merchandise?

They have a limited supply of the 30% discount I imagine, rather than actual product.

I got: Baby Products, Luxury Beauty, Furniture, Tires, Tools, Musican Instruments, Outdoors, Sports.

Didn’t get pet food, software, CD’s, Video Games (which are stuff I already buy)… figures
