American Express has launched a new targeted offer for spending at Amazon and while it’s not quite as good an offer as one we saw around the same time last year, it should be an easy offer to make the most of with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the December Holidays all coming up.

Thoughts

The last Amazon offer that I recall Amex publishing was for 8 bonus points per dollar for a maximum of 3,000 points so this offer requires a bit more spending to earn a slightly lower maximum number of points.

Another difference between this offer and the last Amex Amazon offer that I remember may be that this offer is only targeted at consumer Membership Rewards cards – my Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express hasn’t been targeted while two other consumer cards have been – but YMMV. Nevertheless, regardless of whether or not business cards are being targeted, this is still a very nice offer to get and one that a lot of cardholders should be able to max out.

The total number of points/dollar you’ll earn by using this offer will depend on the Membership Rewards card to which you load the offer but all targeted cardholders can only earn 2,500 bonus points which will require $500 of spending.

  • Amex EveryDay Preferred Credit Card will earn up to 6.5 points/dollar**
  • Amex EveryDay Preferred Credit Card will earn up to 6.2 points/dollar***
  • All other consumer Membership Rewards Cards will earn 6 points/dollar.

**Assuming a cardholder also makes 30 transactions in each billing cycle the card is used for this offer (terms apply)
***Assuming a cardholder also makes 20 transactions in each billing cycle the card is used for this offer (terms apply)

As far as I can see, there’s no reason to think that Amazon gift card purchases and reloads will not trigger this offer as the terms and conditions only rule out corporate gift cards and custom-designed gift cards and that should make it even easier to make sure that you don’t leave any points behind.

I value Membership Rewards points at 1.5 cents each (based on the value that I know I can get out of them with limited effort) so the bonus points on offer here are the equivalent to a 7% rebate. If you factor in that rebate on top of the savings we should be able to make in the upcoming Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, the holiday spending season just got a little bit cheaper.

Bottom Line

American Express is currently targeting cardholders with an offer of 5 bonus points per dollar spent through Amazon.com with a maximum of 2,500 bonus points on offer. Cardholders should choose which of their targeted cards they load the offer with care to as some cards will offer a better return than others.

One Of The Best Amex Cards Around

The American Express® Gold Card offers the best earnings rates for spending at US supermarkets and on dining out of any American Express Membership Rewards card, and it offers credits for Uber/Uber Eats and dining which help offset the $250 annual fee (rates & fees).

Currently, the American Express® Gold Card is offering successful new applicants 60,000 bonus Membership Rewards Points after they spend $4,000 on their new card in the first 6 months of card membership.

The Great Benefits (Terms Apply)

  • Earn 4 points/dollar on spending at U.S Supermarkets (up to $25,000 in spending/year)
  • Earn 4 points/dollar on dining and takeout (including Uber Eats)
  • Earn 3 points/dollar on flights booked directly with airlines or through Amex Travel
  • Get $120/year in dining credits (at select eateries)
