$30 off of $60 at Amazon with 1 Membership Rewards point [Targeted]

Amazon is once again offering a promotion for $30 off of $60 when paying with at least 1 American Express Membership Rewards point. This promotion is targeted. I was not targeted this time, but it’s worth checking to see if you are.

Screen shot is from a previous such promotion. I was not targeted this time around.

The Deal

  • Use at least 1 Membership Rewards point to pay, get $30 off of $60
  • Direct link to see if you’re targeted (this is our affiliate link, but remember you can go through JetBlue to earn 3x on your shopping)

Key Terms

  • Valid through 11:59pm PT December 31, 2017
  • Only valid on items shipped & sold by Amazon (no third-party items, even if fulfilled by Amazon)
  • Not valid on digital content
  • See this Doctor of Credit post for more terms

Quick Thoughts

This is a nice offer if you’re eligible. Unfortunately, I wasn’t targeted this time — otherwise I would certainly take them up on this one. Keep in mind that you must use at least 1 American Express Membership Rewards point to pay ($0.01). It’s not a good deal to use more points than that as you’re only getting 1 cent per point in value (well below our Reasonable Redemption Value of 1.82 cents per point). Note that this promotion is not for paying with Discover or Citi points — only American Express Membership Rewards points. In order to pay with Membership Rewards points, you’ll have to first select a credit card that earns Membership Rewards points so that you can choose to pay with a point.  This one is reported to work with both physical and electronic third-party gift cards, so this one should provide a great value to just about anyone.

  1. Woo hoo I got it. I used it for three $25 Jasons Deli Gift cards. Was working ok. Changed my mind and used it on one JD gift card, seventh generation tp and shower spray to come out more exactly to $60. Applied one MR point. Worked fine. Thanks!

    • You have to click the link in the post where it says “Direct link to see if you’re targeted” (and log into your Amazon account if you’re not already logged in). If you’re eligible, you’ll see a page like the picture in the section labeled “The Deal” in this post. If not, it’ll say something like, “Sorry, you’re not eligible for this offer”.

  2. Is there a way to check if I used this offer in the past ?
    I clicked your link, pop-up message said “click to activate”, which I did.
    Found an item sold and shipped by Amazon, chose one Amex point, but at final check-out there was no discount !

    • Weird. Reports I’ve read indicate that it was working for people who had used it before. Offer showed unavailable for me, but available for my wife (we’d both used it before). Maybe try another item?

      • Nick, thanks a lot, again !
        Tried different item and saw a $30 discount at checkout )
        The problem with the first item is that it is not in stock now, says “Ships when available in 1-2 days.”
        Will wait for that item to show up, hopefully price will be the same)

  3. Ok, another question then – am I supposed to receive email from Amazon about this offer ? Just checked my email – don’t see any.
    Btw, also tried different browsers and VPN – same result, no discount.

  4. I got the offer but fine print says you can’t use the same MR from a card you’ve used in the past….and I only have 2 MR – earning AMEX cards…both have been used in the past. SO I’m targeted but the $30 is gonna go to waste. Damn
