[Update 1/10/19] This deal is back and valid through December 31, 2019. That makes it seem that this one will likely not repeat this year unfortunately — but it also means you should be able to save it for when it gives you a particularly good deal.

[Expired 12/31/17 & 12/31/18] 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.

- See full terms on the promotion page
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, Citi, Chase, or Capital One, or Hilton Honors 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.
