$15 off $60 at Amazon w/ 1 Chase point returns

Update 6/9/19: According to Doctor of Credit, more people are being targeted for this offer, so it’s worth checking if you weren’t able to take advantage of this deal last time.

Be sure to keep an eye on the checkout total though. I was targeted last time and used it then, but it let me reactivate the offer today so I figured I’d try again. When checking out though, the $15 discount wasn’t applied.


Amazon and Chase are once again partnering up to offer $15 off $60+ when you check out using at least 1 Chase Ultimate Rewards point to pay for your purchase. You definitely do not want to use more than 1 point, but it’s worthwhile to check for this promo since it can be an easy way to save on anything Amazon sells, including many popular third-party gift cards.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • This promotion starts at 12:00 am PST on November 22nd, 2018 and ends on the earlier of (i) at 11:59pm PST on 07/03/2019, or (ii) when 104,666 offers have been redeemed, or (iii) when Amazon elects to end the promotion.
    Amazon reserves the right to modify or cancel this offer while supplies last (Note: Despite the start date in November, I had previously used this offer at that time and it shows I am eligible again, so it’s worth checking)
  • Coupon is only valid on items shipped & sold by Amazon (no third party merchants)
  • Must link your Ultimate Rewards-earning credit card and pay with at least one point
  • Terms state you must pay the balance with your Chase Rewards card
  • See the page linked above for more terms

Quick Thoughts

This is a good promotion if you’re eligible. Amazon obviously stocks a wide range of daily necessities. What’s more, they sell a wide range of third-party gift cards which should be eligible for this promotion. Note that this promo will not work on Amazon gift cards, but should work on both physical and virtual third-party cards sold by Amazon. For example, you could choose your own denomination on an AirBnB email delivery gift card, buying a $60 card for $44.99 + 1 Ultimate Rewards point:

Note that the terms say that this deal started on November 22nd, 2018. I used the promo a few days after that and I still saw the activation button today. When I clicked the button, I thought that perhaps I wasn’t eligible after all since I received this message:

However, I went ahead and added the AirBnB gift card to my cart as shown above and at checkout it automatically applied points. Don’t forget to adjust that to $0.01 in points.

Don’t forget to change that to 1 point.

You might notice in the screen grab above that I only have 6 Chase points available. That’s because I keep a UR card that is nearly empty of points associated with Amazon for promos like this. That way, if someone were to hack my Amazon account, they (hopefully) will not be able to apply my entire Ultimate Rewards balance to an order.

Overall, it’s great to see this promo return. It’s worth seeing if you’re eligible and activating/using this one on something that will save you money.

Did this work multiple times for anyone else?

I got the same “Your points will be applied at checkout but we were not able to activate the promo code. If you have already activated this code, your discount will be applied at checkout” message Nick mentioned.

But, unlike Nick, I’m not getting a $15 discount when I get to the check-out page.


Thank you for your interest in this offer. Unfortunately, you are not eligible for this invitation-only offer.


I’m never eligible for the Chase Amazon offers but seem to always succeed with the AMEX offers. Any idea how to get eligible for Chase?


“Your points will be applied at checkout but we were not able to activate the promo code. If you have already activated this code, your discount will be applied at checkout.”

That means it’s a no-go?

Wow! Thanks. I saw the chase UR promotion but thought I had to use all points to pay for item. I used $1, 125 points and got $15 off! Thanks so much!!
