An AMEX Offer for Amazon is 2 Extra Membership Rewards Points per Eligible Dollar Spent. Stack that with the AMEX Blue Business Plus‘s 2X AMEX points per dollar, and that yields 4X per dollar on Amazon.
That's not quite as good as the 5X Ultimate Rewards points per dollar on all Amazon spend available if you purchase Amazon gift cards at an office supply store using an Ink Cash card, but there are a couple reasons why this AMEX Amazon offer can make sense:
- For significant purchases where you want AMEX Extended Warranty protection (this usually extends the warranty by the same amount of time of the original warranty if the warranty is <2 years, or by 2 additional years if the warranty is 2-5 years, but check the extended warranty terms of the specific AMEX card you're using).
- To diversify your points; it can be harder to earn plenty of AMEX Membership Rewards points, so AMEX Offers such as these are a way to replenish Membership Rewards points
Here are the offer details:
- Enroll your targeted AMEX card by clicking on the “Add to Card” button
- Use your enrolled card to earn 2 additional AMEX Membership Rewards points per dollar on eligible purchases
- Eligible purchases must be made online at amazon.com or via the U.S. Amazon mobile app
- Deadline: September 30, 2019
- Excludes corporate gift card and custom-designed gift card purchases.
- Offer not valid for Amazon Local, Amazon Mechanical Turk, Amazon Web Services, Amazon Home & Business Services, Amazon Currency Converter, Home Services, Prime Photos, Amazon Inspire, Amazon Video Direct, Amazon business, Amazon Global, or Amazon Drive.
- Limit of 1,500 additional Membership Rewards points per Card Member.
- Additional points will be credited to your Membership Rewards program account within 90 days after 9/30/2019
This AMEX Offer for Amazon is a good way to earn extra points for Amazon purchases, especially since Amazon generally doesn't participate in shopping portals. The offer is best combined with the AMEX Blue Business Plus, which already earns 2X per dollar spent, so that the earning is 4X per dollar rather than 3X per dollar.
Since there's a limit of 1500 extra Membership Rewards points awarded per card member, you can earn the extra 2 points on a maximum of $750 of eligible Amazon spend made before 9/30/19.
