Amazon and American Express are once again running the promotion where you can save 20% on purchases at Amazon if you use at least one American Express point. The last time they did this was back in July for Amazon Prime Day
How to activate the 20% off Amazon promo (up to $100 off)
First you must visit this page to activate the offer.
You have to pay with at least one American Express Membership Rewards, and you’ll get 20% off your order.Note that you shouldn’t pay with more than 1 point, because it’s a bad use of your American Express points
Then just add any products sold by Amazon.com (3rd party gift cards work but Amazon gift cards do not). I bought Safeway gift cards (to resell), but obviously any items sold by Amazon.com that you actually want to buy would be the best (See below)
