The Offer

Direct link to offer (affiliate links here and below)

  • Amazon is offering $15 off $50 when you use at least one Chase Ultimate Rewards point
    • Here’s how to go about doing this deal:
      1. Link your Chase Ultimate Rewards account to your Amazon account if you haven’t already (you often have to wait 24 hours after registering your card until you can activate the offer)
      2. Activate offer at this link 
      3. Add $50 or more of eligible products shipped and sold by Amazon to your shopping cart
      4. Proceed to checkout & select your Chase Rewards Card as your payment method
      5. Select the amount of Ultimate Rewards Points you’d like to use for the purchase (must use points for at least $.01 of the purchase)
      6. Up to a $15 discount off $50 will be automatically applied at checkout

The Fine Print

  • This is a limited time offer. The promotion will begin on 7/28/2020 and end on the earlier of (a) 11:59pm PT on 11/15/2020, or (b) the time at which 66,667 customers have redeemed the offer.

F.A.Q’s

How can I make myself eligible for this deal?

If you don’t have a registered Ultimate Rewards card, add the card and register that for shop with points. In the past, the way it’s worked is that you have to wait 24 hours from registering the card until the activation link will show up. Some have reported that they needed to wait a few days until eligible.

Many readers are reporting having success getting targeted for this deal by removing all of their Ultimate Rewards cards from their Amazon account, then re-adding them and re-registering for Shop-with-Points.

Do you need prime for this deal?

No, it’s working even for some people who don’t have Prime.

Can the deal be used more than once?

Not sure, might need to buy $60 in one purchase.

Can I use a gift card to pay with Shop-with-Points purchase?

Yes, we describe a few methods to accomplish this in this dedicated post.

Our Verdict

It won’t work on Amazon branded gift cards, but it should work on third party gift cards. Worth buying something now in case it gets used up (46,667 max redemptions). It should work even if you’ve done the deal previously.

When I click on the link and the app loads, it just shows a blank page. First time I’ve seen this happen. It usually says whether or not one is eligible. Any ideas?

I wonder if they hit the 67k limit and it’s dead?

Was able to use this for a Whole Foods GC today. $50 GC, used less than 10c worth of UR points and they let me use an Amazon GC to pay for the rest.

I think they let you use amazon GC because Whole Foods is amazon, I guess. But as reader Otto mentioned amazon GC not allowed for buying others GCs.

I used it today for chipotle card but would not let me use the amazon gift card, you have to pay the rest $34 something with chase Credit Card.
This offer shows up on iPad, on phone $10 Amex deal.

You cannot pay for gift cards with Amazon gift card. If you’re using the offer to buy a gift card you will need to pay the balance with the Chase card at least. If you are buying actual items you can use your Amazon gift card to pay for the balance.

Good point, I will take a note of it.

You can use amazon gift card to pay for other gift cards. Here is Doc’s post how to do it. I never had any issue doing it.

It’s damn hard to find what I need “sold and shipped by Amazon”, and out of whatever I do find, I can find it way cheaper on eBay or elsewhere, rendering these discounts practically useless.

Gift cards bro.

For the places I shop at, giftcards are cheaper on CardCash/Raise. E.g. even using my 1st yr Discover to buy Old Navy GC on Amazon will give me 10% back, but I can buy the same from Raise with 8.3% discount + 5% back from using Chase Freedom via PayPal effectively giving me a little shy of 13% discount.

wait, my bad, I got it all confused with another thread. You’re right, with $15 off $50 it makes perfect sense to buy GCs, but the selection is very limited. I don’t shop at most places Amazon sells GSc for.

Good point, I recommend gift cards if they sell one you can use, such as Lowe’s.

Amazon is usually not the best place to buy GCs, see my answer to the comment above yours.

Still not eligible.

Worked for me, and I have been locked out of these offers for several months.

Took a while to realize I needed at least $50 worth of merchandise. I’m used to “up to $50”

Chuck The fine print states: The promotion will begin on 7/28/2020 and end on the earlier of (a) 11:59pm PT on 11/15/2020, or (b) the time at which **66,667** customers have redeemed the offer. The promotion code will expire concurrently. Not 44,667

Used .10 worth of points and was able to apply both the the $15 credit and a $10 Prime Day GC promo credit. Total charge for the the $50 Whole Food GC was $24.90 and 12 UR.

Finally trying this and it doesn’t appear you can only use 1 point now to trigger the offer….anyone else?

Chuck

Alexis Saw someone else mention something the other week. So you’re saying that it lets you do the deal, but requires you do the entire purchase with points? Does it allow you to use partial points when NOT doing a deal?

Otto
Otto

I used the offer today with 1 UR point and also the rest of the balance covered by gift card balance.

Alexis

That is what happened earlier via mobile app. Jumped on my laptop same thing – must pay with points to get the deal, no option to use partial points. The little box didn’t even show up to allow any change in points used. I did try to uncheck the Chase promotion but still didn’t allow partial points. HOWEVER, just tried again via mobile app and now it allows 1 point. So maybe a glitch or need to clear cache or something…

I was targeted this time and just tried it with a safeway e-gift card and only used 1 point.

Just saw this offer banner today in my cart (my account wasn’t previously eligible). Worked!
