American Express has been targeting its cardholders for a number of Amazon offers this year and although this latest offer could be considered its weakest so far, it still an offer that most people should be able to use with relative ease.

Thoughts

I’m only seeing this offer on one of my five American Express cards and that’s a little unusual so it’s possible that this is a highly targeted offer. It’s also worth noting that I’m seeing this offer targeted to my Hilton Honors Surpass credit card and not on any of my Membership Rewards cards so there’s a chance that there’s also a parallel offer available (one which I haven’t been targeted for) that offers 1,000 Membership Rewards Points for spending $100 at Amazon.com – make sure you check all of your Amex cards carefully.

$10 back on $100 of spending isn’t exactly a big deal, but considering gift cards don’t appear to be excluded from this offer and considering how many everyday items Amazon.com sells, I view an offer like this as essentially free money. I wouldn’t have to go out of my way to trigger this offer and I wouldn’t have to buy anything I wouldn’t otherwise buy either so, for most, this will probably be a small but very useful promotion.

If you’ve been targeted for this offer on multiple cards make sure you save it to the card which will give you the best return on your spending (don’t save it to the first card you see it on). Personally, I would have preferred to have this offer targeted to my Blue Business Plus credit card which earns me 2 Membership Rewards Points per dollar on all spending (up to $50k per year) but, as it is, I’ll settle for 3 Hilton Points/dollar from my Surpass card.

Bottom Line

Amex is targeting select card holders for an offer of up to $20 back on $200 of spending at Amazon.com. The offer may be very tightly targeted so make sure you check all of your cards carefully and keep an eye out for a possible parallel offer where up to 2,000 Membership Rewards Points are available instead of $20.

Has anyone been targeted for a Membership Rewards version of this offer or is everyone only being targeted for a saving of up to $20?
