Get +8 Membership Rewards® points per eligible dollar spent. Up to 3,000 points.

  • Expires 12/31/2020
  • First $375 of spend at Amazon.com after loading offer, will earn an additional 8 points per dollar.  For example, if your card normally earns 1 point per dollar, you’ll receive a total of 9 points per dollar.


Get 8 additional Membership Rewards points for each dollar spent on eligible purchases made using your enrolled Card online at Amazon.com by 12/31/2020. Limit of 3,000 Membership Rewards points. See terms for exclusions.


ENROLLMENT/ELIGIBLE CARDS: By enrolling and making an eligible purchase, you consent to American Express sharing with Amazon the fact that you redeemed this Amex Offer. Amazon’s use of this information will be subject to Amazon’s privacy policies and practices. Enrollment limited. Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Your enrollment does not extend to any other Cards that may be linked to the same Membership Rewards program account (such as Additional Cards). Offer is non-transferable. ELIGIBLE PURCHASES: Offer valid only for purchases made at Amazon.com and via the US Amazon mobile app using your enrolled American Express Card after enrollment and prior to 12/31/2020.

See Amazon.com for shipping policy. Amazon may not ship to all areas. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the additional points. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the additional Membership Rewards points if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party. EARNING POINTS: You will receive 8 additional Membership Rewards points per eligible dollar spent using your enrolled American Express Card in accordance with the terms of this offer. Limit of 3,000 additional Membership Rewards points per Card Member. The enrolled Card account must be active, not be past due, canceled or have a returned payment outstanding to receive the additional Membership Rewards points. Any additional points you receive through this offer are in addition to the points you would normally receive for purchases charged to your Card, but the number of additional points you receive will be based on the purchase price after any credit or other discount is applied. When we calculate the additional points benefit for Amex EveryDay® Card products, points awarded under this offer will not be included. Additional points will be credited to your Membership Rewards program account within 90 days after 12/31/2020, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. We may not credit additional points to, or we may take away additional points that have been credited to, your program account if the qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. Terms and conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply. Visit membershiprewards.com/terms for more information. Participating partners and available rewards are subject to change without notice. The value of Membership Rewards points varies according to how you choose to use them. To learn more, go to www.membershiprewards.com/pointsinfo. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. Bonus ID: B6PC POID: K1H0:0001

Quick Thoughts

This is a nice win, especially for those of us who are earning an additional 3 points per dollar on all spend after having referred someone during the Amex Refer a Friend Three For All promo.  Even without a promo like that, though, earning a minimum of 9X on Amazon purchases (or simply reloading your Amazon gift card balance) is a great deal.  Too bad it’s limited to only 3,000 points.

[…] Awesome Amex Offer: Get +8 Points Per Dollar at Amazon (Expires 12/31/20) […]


just checked amex offers on my new platinum card and didn’t see the 8+ amazon points offer. maybe this is targeted?

[…] Awesome Amex Offer — Get +8 Points Per Dollar at Amazon: This is a great offer and I have it loaded to one of my Amex cards and one of my wife’s cards.  I already spent $79.99 on each card with the above deal and I’ve scheduled daily Amazon reloads with my Everyday Preferred card in order to polish off this deal on that card (and to ensure hitting the 30 charges per billing cycle on that card to get the card’s usual 50% bonus).  I haven’t finished the deal on my wife’s card yet, but we have until the end of the year to do so.  That shouldn’t be a problem. […]

[…] to stack this week with Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and even better if you also synced up the offer for +8 Membership Rewards points per dollar on Amazon […]

[…] Cardmembers eligible for this offer receive 8 additional Membership Rewards points for each dollar spent on eligible purchases made using your enrolled card online at Amazon.com by 12/31/2020. Cardmembers are limited to earning 3,000 Membership Rewards points. You can read more about the offer here. […]

Whoo-hoo, thanks Greg! Heading to use this offer right now.

Always add 10 or so nearly expired offers. That way, the new one actually show up when reducing the available ones to less than 100.

What about reloading amazon gift card balance?

Billy Bob

Should work.


Added it to my Blue Business, P2’s Everyday, P3’s Platinum AU card and P4’s Gold AU card. 9X (10 in the case of the Blue Business) for the next $1500 spent on Amazon!


I got the same AMEX Offer and have the same question. I currently have 5x on Chase United and Chase Hyatt for Amazon, and I had thought there was no issue with reloading my personal Amazon account. Is that true on AMEX for this AMEX offer (or am I wrong on Chase)?


In my experience, gift cards or reloads are not a problem with Chase. I don’t even attempt it with Amex. However… Amazon sometimes let you credit a return to your gift card balance instead of to your credit card. So, far it has only worked with products sold by Amazon for me. YMMV


Encouraging people to buy gift cards or reload their balance with the 3x might be a bad idea. Amex might just clawback ALL of the points and not just the 3x.


“Excludes corporate gift card and custom-designed gift card purchases.“
(I haven’t had enough coffee.)
So, it CAN be used for regular gift cards?
