40% off with use of AMEX MR points on Amazon.com($50 max discount)

Hello, Fico fam! Trust everyone is safe and healthy.

 

Just took advantage of this on Amazon.com and thought to share peradventure others can benefit from it. So sorry I didn't get a screengrab.

 

I was shopping for a king-size boxspring and after adding to the cart, a pop-up appeared, offering 40% off to be applied at check-out if I use available MR points as my payment option for a maximum of $50 discount. It says the offer expires end of June(i think) or after 12,000 customers have applied the discount.

 

I took the offer and it was well worth it as it came to about 1.2 cents on the dollar. Normally, 12.000 MR points would come to a little over $80 dollars which were like 0.7 cents on the dollar but with the 40% discount it made up for the dismal conversion rate and more. Best use of my MR points outside of travel in a while. Please note that this offer has to be "activated" before use and can be used on multiple purchases for the max of $50 in discounts.

 

In my case, I got my max $50 at once and it was very sweet. Cheers folks!

Glad it worked out for you!

 

I think the best way to take advantage is by only using 1 MR and paying the balance on the card, so you're not using your points for a low return. I used the same 40% Amazon offer plus an Amex offer of 5x additional MRs on the BBP up to 2k extra MRs. Got the $50 credit plus 7x MRs on the purchase.

I did exactly this with my son's new mattress, but 4x additional MR on my Gold.  5x MR on top of the big discount.

Used a promo lately on amazon used 1 MR point and got 20% for air pods pros..  Got them for 204ish including tax i think when normally 260+tax..  So got a great deal Smiley Happy.  Glad yours worked for you although yours was 40% off mine was only 20% :/.

I was able to also use 40% off and on top of it I earned 5x on charges. 🤷🏻‍♂️
