Step by Step Guide

To take advantage of this offer, follow these steps:

  • Activate the offer first;
  • Add your Membership Rewards earning American Express card to your Amazon payment method.
  • Add items sold by Amazon LLC to cart
  • Check out and apply a minimum of one Membership Rewards points (worth $0.01).
  • You should see up to $100 off your total purchase.

While the terms stated that gift cards are not eligible, I was able to purchase five $100 Safeway e- gift cards and paid only $399.99 after applying one Membership Rewards point.

Last time you could buy Amazon gift cards (and I did) but this time it appears that Amazon gift cards are blocked.

Act fast if you want to take advantage of this offer!
