[YMMV] Amazon Fresh: Free Trial + $30 Off First Order For American Express Cardholders

Update 9/2/19: More targeted.

Update 8/4/19: More targeted.

Update 7/1/19: More targeted

Update 6/4/19: More people have been targeted for this offer.

The Offer

Direct link to offer (our affiliate link. Not everybody is targeted and Amazon Fresh is only in certain areas)

  • Amazon is offering a free trial to Amazon Fresh and $30 off your first order when you enter the promo code AMEXFRESH. Remember to cancel your free trial or you will be charged $14.99 per month. Order needs to be at least $30 or the minimum order amount in your delivery area, whichever is higher.

The Fine Print

  • Valid until December 31st, 2018
  • Offer valid for first time order
  • Must use an American Express card to pay

Our Verdict

The reader who sent this in was targeted, but the offer still didn’t work properly for them so they had to chat with Amazon to get the credit applied. Normally this deal (well, similar deals) have a $100 minimum spend requirement, this one is $30 or the minimum order amount in your delivery area (usually a maximum of $50). Keep in mind enrolling in the free trial means you’ll be billed $14.99 per month after the free trial ends. Fingers crossed you are targeted and it’s $30 off $30. Share your own experiences in the data points below.

Correct. I also experienced that. But placed an order with 30 discount for a total just over $20.

“YOUR ORDER MUST EITHER (1) BE AT LEAST $30 OR (2) MEET THE MINIMUM ORDER AMOUNT IN YOUR DELIVERY AREA, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.” I hope it works for me otherwise I’ll try chat. Thanks!

Was targeted but got “The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.” at checkout.

Does anybody know if Amazon Fresh count towards Discover’s 5% this quarter?

Discover counts for 5% of any amazon orders, but for this promotion to work you should apply an amex card as payment

I was requesting delivery in Atlanta. The code did not work so I joined the chat and rep said the code doesn’t exist and cannot see that it ever did exist. She asked where I got this information from but I didn’t want to get the site dinged so I said I couldn’t find the URL.

Note that this happened to me despite being targeted for the ad. Upon review by a supervisor, they said the promo was indeed legit but that they hadn’t been notified of it yet so they did a manual addition for me (and this was after I did the Fresh25 first AmazonFresh order promo LOL)

direct link from a banner ad on the site for me was https://www.amazon.com/b/ref=AMEX30_ILM?node=17927744011

I had a problem to apply the code to my order, even with $50+ order amount.
Amazon had also an issue to apply it on their end but they said all requirements are met. So they will issue a $30 refund to the card once the order ships.

Btw. I didn’t receive an email about this offer as I recall but I saw a banner on the amazon page while browsing.

FYI. I got the promised refund/credit to the credit card.

I was also targeted for this in Seattle. Didn’t take them up since I used the Shipt promo for groceries this month already. Hopefully I can squeeze an order in before the new year.

Also in Seattle here … which Shipt promotion did you do and how did it work out for you?

Harman

Didn’t see anything in my specific zip code. I was able to make it work with my employer zip. Maybe they have low coverage in Seattle.

Will this count towards the new Amex gold offer of spending $50 and earning 2000 MR points?

I was able to use the promo code with no problem on my Amazon Prime account. Paid the remaining balance with Amex Everday card. My area is in Boston and it has a $35 min for free shipping.
