Save 20% On Amazon When Paying With 1 Membership Rewards Point (Targeted)

Amazon has a couple of new offers that give you 20% off when redeeming 1 Membership Rewards point. This is an excellent deal if you’re targeted as you can use it to buy third party gift cards. If it says you’re not eligible, it might still be possible to get yourself targeted – read on to find out how.

Quick Thoughts

This is an excellent deal if you’re targeted. I wasn’t targeted for either of these deals, but Greg was lucky enough to be targeted for both. He’s verified that he can activate both deals, but only one discount is applied at a time and the $250 offer takes precedence over the $100 offer.

One of the nice things about these offers is that you can buy third party gift cards (but not Amazon gift cards) provided they’re sold and shipped by Amazon and includes eGift cards. For example, adding a $250 gift card to your cart and applying 1 Membership Rewards point provides the $50 discount and leaves you with $199.99 to pay.

How To Get Targeted

If you weren’t targeted, it might be possible to get the activation link displayed. Check out this post to see what’s worked for me a few times in the past. Follow those steps and then check every day to see if you can activate the offer(s).

Note that the activation link in that post is for a past offer, so when you get to step 4 you’ll want to use this link instead (our affiliate link).

I followed your $250 link above and my offer wasn’t for 20%, it was for a fixed $20 off a $100+ purchase. But $20 is better than nothing!


Not targeted. Trick didn’t work this time, either.


Received a $30 off promotion for 1 point. The item I had in my cart was $80. Not sure what the minimum was, but I pulled the trigger so fast after seeing it was a flat $30


Quick awesome stacking deal.

Buy $100 of Amazon credit from OM/OD with Ink and get 5x points.
$20 on $100 with 1 AmEx MR.
$10 in Amazon credit when buying $100 Netflix (promo code NETFLIX)

So after $80 spend, you get $100 Netflix card, $10 Amazon promo credit and 500 Chase UR.
