On today’s Last Chance Deals post we included the latest Amazon promo where you could save 20% when redeeming at least 1 Membership Rewards point. That promo has actually been extended to April 30 and there’s a similar promo going on right now that can save you 20% when redeeming 1 Discover point.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • This is a limited offer. The promotion will end on the earlier of (a) 11:59 PT on 4/20/2020 4/30/2020 5/11/2020, or (b) the time at which offers worth $2,000,000 have been redeemed.
  • Maximum savings of $50.

Quick Thoughts

This is a targeted offer which is a great deal if you have access to it because it can save you 20% on up to $250 of spend. If you’re struggling to come up with $250 of merchandise to buy on Amazon, this offer can also be used to buy third party gift cards (but note that it can’t be used to buy Amazon gift cards themselves).

Something to be aware of is that items have to be sold and shipped by Amazon. A large number of items listed on Amazon are sold by a third party seller and shipped by Amazon, so those aren’t eligible.

Be sure to only redeem 1 point when taking advantage of this offer. While redeeming more points than that doesn’t represent awful value with Discover seeing as you’re effectively cashing out at 1cpp, you can get more than 1cpp of value by redeeming your cashback bonus directly with Discover for gift cards that come with at least a $5 bonus.

When trying to activate this offer, you might get a message saying that you’re not eligible for it. If that’s the case, don’t give up. I’ve gotten that message a number of times in the past with similar offers, but following the steps below has usually resulted in me finally being targeted. It’s worked for other readers in the past too, so it’s not only my account that eventually gets lucky. Here’s what to do:

  • Delete every Discover card that you have saved as a payment method on your Amazon account.
  • Add one or more of those cards back as a payment method.
  • Re-enroll in Pay With Cashback Bonus (our affiliate link).
  • Try to activate the offer (our affiliate link).
  • It’ll likely say that you’re ineligible immediately after doing this. If so, check every day as it usually takes a few days before you’re able to activate it.

Does anyone know if this is supposed to work on Amazon Warehouse items?

[…] Amazon: Save 20% When Redeeming 1 Discover Point (Limit $50 Savings) (Expires 5/11/20) […]

Ed Rascati

My card and the points show up now – but still no 20% off when selecting the Discover card and redeeming some points. Does the offer also take a few days to activate or am I out of luck? thanks!

Ed Rascati

damn- do you know if the same discover card can be used on two different amazon accounts?

Ed Rascati

thanks – still no discount on my account. My discover card is listed, with available cashback points but when i select that payment i don’t get the 20%. i signed up sunday morning. interestingly, on the same page it says “Add a new way to pay. Did you know we accept multiple credit cards? Add a Discover card to your wallet now.” I don’t know if I should readd or just wait. i’m afraid if readd it’ll just take that much longer to get the 20% off to post. Any advice? thank you!

Ed Rascati

ok- thanks again for all your help!!

Ed Rascati

i was on my check out page and a message was there saying to activate the bonus on my discover card, even tho i had previously activated it. once i activated it again from that message then it was instantly available!

Is there any way to filter to find only the “Sold by Amazon Digital Svcs LLC”? Everything I am looking at is from third-party sellers and are only “fulfilled by Amazon”.

Thanks!

Thanks. Save $40 on $200 gift cards. Albertson’s grocery stores.

I got this offer, but I just did the MR deal, so I’ve run out of amazon stuff that I actually need, and buying $250 of Doordash GCs would probably not be good for my waistline. The offer period is strangely short, but these offers seem to come around often, so I think I can safely pass and wait for the next time.

Still shows 4/20 for me. I thought about Safeway GCs, but I’d rather get 5xUR later on with CF than prepay for groceries, since I’m all stocked up.
