Check your email and online account if you are an American Express cardholder. If you missed out on Amex’s last round of bonus points for Amazon spending, you may be eligible this time around.
As part of its latest round of offers, Amex is offering certain cardholders 5 bonus Membership Rewards® points per dollar on Amazon spending.
TPG Points and Miles Editor Andrew Kunesh, saw the offer on The Platinum Card® from American Express. If you have the same offer, you must make Amazon purchases with an enrolled card between now and Dec. 25, 2022, to get the extra points.
The offer is capped at 2,500 Membership Rewards points, so you could earn a maximum of $50 in additional points value through this offer since TPG values Amex Membership Rewards points at 2 cents per point.
Still, this could be a nice way to maximize your spending if you plan to make a handful of purchases on Amazon for the holidays. If you normally earn 1 point per dollar on Amazon purchases with your Amex card, you will earn 6 points per dollar on up to $500 in spending.
As always with targeted offers, eligibility can really vary from card to card and member to member. For that reason, it’s worth checking your Amex account to see if this Amazon offer – or, another offer of note, is available to you. You should also check if you’re eligible for 40% off your next Amazon purchase when you redeem 1 Membership Reward point.
It could be a way to capitalize on your earnings on a platform on which many of us make everyday purchases.
