Amazon.com now lets you link your Amex Membership Rewards card to your account and pay with points. Through this approach, you’ll only get 1 cent per point value (not great), but it might be worth it one time to get $20 off your order.
First note that this seems to be targeted. I tried two accounts and neither worked. Anyway, here’s the deal:
1. Link your Membership Rewards card to your Amazon account here.
2. Add $20 or more in items shipped and sold by Amazon to your cart.
3. Select to pay with points, but change the amount paid with points to just 1 cent (this last part is optional).
4. During checkout, apply code SWP20AMR.
Good luck! As I said, this didn’t work for me, but hopefully will for you.
