[Targeted] $25 Off $50+ On Amazon When You Use At Least One American Express Point

Reposting this again because it should finally work.

The Offer

Direct link to offer (this probably won’t work, see instructions to get it to work below)

  • Link your Amex Membership Rewards account with your Amazon account for Shop-with-Points and receive $25 off a $50+ purchase of anything sold by Amazon with promo code AMEX16EVER.

amazon american express

 

To receive the promotional discount:

  1. Add $50 or more of eligible products sold and shipped by Amazon.com to your shopping card.
  2. Go to your payment options and choose your linked AMEX card with Membership Rewards (must have a card linked already, it seems you can’t currently link a card for whatever reason)
  3. pay for at least a portion of your order with Membership Rewards points (can just use one point) (click choose different amount to do this)
  4. Enter the promo code AMEX16EVER in the box provided on the checkout page
  5. $25 of savings will be reflected on the final order checkout page.

The Fine Print

  • Valid until December 31st, 2016
  • At least one Membership Rewards point must be used for the purchase and your shopping cart must contain at least $50 of eligible products

Our Verdict

American Express have offered $15 off $50+ before (twice), obviously this offer is better as it’s a bigger discount and same spend requirement. If you don’t know what you wanna buy, I’d recommend just purchasing a $50 Amazon gift card for $25 and getting yourself a 50% discount locked in. Amazon gift cards won’t work unfortunately. Share what you’re purchasing in the comments below.

Looks like it doesn’t work for everyone. Maybe it only works for those that have not taken advantage of one of these offers before. I get “The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.”

Doc can you shine some light on me? Applied and immediately approved for both the Platinum and PRG last month. However was declined for the Everyday yesterday. Score at 692 according to Amex. It’s my 3rd denial for this card in 1 year. Was hoping that it would be much easier to be approved for it than for the other 2 no?
Also have the SPG and HIlton.
your opinion?

3 Amex cards in a month? You are pushing your luck buddy. I see a financial review in your future.

Really? Good to know that may be the reason. Guess I’ll lay low for a while then.

yea bro. you got plat and PRG and now you want a 3rd MR CC? not gonna call you out and be a dick or anything since we all should help each other, but cmon man. your score is under 700 and applying for multiple CC in a 90 day period??? its clear you didnt research amex rules. Doc has a nice writeup on it. please read it. also, I dont even want to know when you got your SPG and HIlton… be careful how you meet min spend on the CC.

I had the same comments but it’s just not working on Amazon giftcards. When I add $50 worth of Prime eligible items, it works.

Worked on my wife’s account. I believe she had used $15 off $50 promotion before.

I got it to work just by checking out, using an MR point and applying the code. Even though I wasnt targeted, I still got the $25 off.

I bought a $50 whole foods gift card for 24.5 using $0.5 amex MR points

A couple things:

A. I don’t think this is targeted, the link you posted gives me the error but if you follow this from reddit then it should work:
Here’s how to get it to work:
1) Put something in your cart and go to the checkout page. (must be $50+ of sold my amazon merch)
2) Go to your payment options and choose your linked AMEX card with Membership Rewards (must have a card linked already).
3) Select “Choose a different amount” and enter 0.01, then click “Use this payment method”.
4) Manually enter the promo code AMEX16EVER and click Apply.

B. What Amazon gift card could you get to work? All of them I see seem to be sold by a different company and do not count

What if I do not have a Amex card linked already? Just can not link Amex card to enroll the pay with points program. Can register a Amex card, but can not register the card to use the mr points. Any way to solve the problem?

Order went through but a few minutes later received a order declined email stating payment using points was declined. I used $2 worth of amex points. anyone has the same issue?

Hey Data Point, i started a chat with the Amazon and explained that you think it’s the MR causing problems.

They canceled the order but gave me the $25 off on a reorder.
ymmv

Never mind, amex had a fraud alert wanting to make sure I’m the one making the points redemption.
