[YMMV] Amazon: Use One Chase Ultimate Rewards Points & Get $15 Off $60 [Works On Giftcards]

Update 6/8/19: Looks like another round of people has been targeted. Other outlets are reporting the offer has been extended until July 3rd, but that actually happened back in March.

Update 5/21/19: More people have been targeted

Update 3/18/19: Deal has been extended until July 3rd, 2019. Hat tip to reader P

Update 1/29/19: Extended through 2/28/29. (ht DDG) Probably won’t work if you already used it, but it’s easy to click through the link and check. Numerous readers who didn’t have success in the past, got it to work now.

Update 1/11/19: According to DDG more people are targeted. Seems accurate considering how many people have mentioned it in the $30 off $60 American Express post.

Update 12/13/18: Deal has been extended until January 27, 2019. Keep in mind it might still end earlier than that as it will also end when 104,666 offers have been redeemed.

Update 12/7/18: Reposting as the& American Express deal is now dead. This is just a friendly reminder that these types of deals often end before the listed end date as they hit the offer cap.

Update 11/24/18: This is working for people when it didn’t work before. Might be worth a second try. Unlike the American Express promo I haven’t seen anybody who has been able to do it twice unfortunately.

The Offer

Direct link to offer (affiliate links here and below)

  • Amazon is offering $15 off $60 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 $60 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 $60 will be automatically applied at checkout

The Fine Print

  • This promotion starts at 12:00 am PST on November 22nd, 2018 and ends on the earlier of (i) at 11:59pm PST on 12/13/2018, or (ii) when 104,666 offers have been redeemed, or (iii) when Amazon elects to end the promotion.

Our Verdict

There are two other similar deals:

This Ultimate Rewards deal seems to be the most hit-or-miss with only a small percentage getting it while the 20% offer seems like it’s working for most. You can sometimes get an offer added by chatting with Amazon, but YMMV. If anyone figures out what the promo code for this offer is (sometimes works even when the link doesn’t), let us know in the comments.

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 (104,666 max redemptions). Below are some popular deals and gift cards sold on Amazon:

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.

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.

quicker method to determine eligibilty

1. Skip step #1.
2. Log into your Amazon.com account.
3. Click on link in step #2

I got error message about offer being invitation-only . Bah!

Any chance that after linking a Chase card, it would make eligibility switch from No to Yes?

William Charles

yes, it’s possible

That happened to me. I think I actually waited for more than 24h. Thanks doc for introducing this deal!!

Same here. I added the chase card/linked points and 2 days later just now the link worked. Thanks DoC!

Also happened to me, and it took about 3-4 days. Linked a Chase card, and checked for eligibility every day through the direct link provided above.

I was able to buy a $60 Lowe’s e-gift card for $45. Amazon automatically applied my gift card balance (which was less than $45). I have used this offer in the past, so I was surprised and pleased that i was eligible again.

I actually am eligible. Never been eligible for a UR deal. Also got the MR deal. Interestingly only my account with prime membership got them.

Rats, the one time I actually could USE these deals (instead of just buying to sell or buying for the future) and I’m not eligible on either! Thanks for sharing them, though and Happy Thanksgiving to the DoC team!

William Charles

Likewise Charlie! Nice work on that QC 35 deal

Interesting to note that when my payment method defaulted to Chase, Amazon would also automatically apply my current gift card balance (from the Personal Capital deal, thanks doc). Can confirm it’s not prime only. Can confirm I’m not able to use it twice.

This worked for me this time! Thanks. I’ve failed in the past with the UR Amazon discounts but worked this time. I did the $60 Lowe’s e-gift card as well

Worked for me! Got $60 Wendys gift cards for $45.

After some great Amex offers soon after opening my card, I haven’t gotten any of the good ones in about a month. I guess the algorithm figures I am just using them for the offers and good categories, so no use giving up the good offers to me.

I am not a member of Prime and I was able to receive $15 off my $60 or greater purchase.

It will not work for me on Visa, Amazon, or GameStop gift cards.

If you have more than one Chase card will it work twice? I have the Freedom and Freedom Unlimited.
