An awesome new Amex Offer just came out where you can receive 5,000 bonus Membership Reward points with the purchase of an Amazon Prime Membership. While Amazon Prime membership costs $99 for the year, I value the Membership Reward points at a minimum of $75. So this is a great opportunity to ultimately get this years Membership at a discount! Since this is not a statement credit offer, but instead a Membership Reward bonus point offer, ONLY American Express credit cards that earn Membership Reward points are eligible (so no co-branded hotel or airline card), and even those cards in your account still might be targeted. The purchase must hit your credit card by March 2, 2018.
To register your Amex card to this promotion:
- Find the Amazon offer and make sure to select the “Save Offer” button. Make sure to read the multi-browser trick first to allow you to save this offer on every single American Express card you have!
- Purchase Amazon Prime membership for $99 with your registered American Express credit card.
Purchasing an Amazon Prime membership:
This is a great for everyone – both new and existing members! While there are many times throughout the year when Amazon discounts their membership, this is probably the best offer you’ll find.
- New members: If you are not yet an Amazon Prime member, you can get an extra month by first signing up for a free 30 trial. And then pay for the $99 membership with your registered card.
- Existing members:
- If your year is up by March 2, you can just re-new your $99 membership as you typically would with your registered American Express card. You can purchase a Prime Membership here.
- If your membership year doesn’t expire until after March 2, 2018, you should be able to “gift” a Prime Membership to someone (or yourself!) and put a date after your Membership expires. The $99 is charged upon purchasing the gift so should trigger the 5,000 bonus points even though the membership won’t start until the expiration date. You can purchase an Amazon gift here.
Enjoy your Prime membership and 5,000 bonus points!
