EXPIRED: £5 off £10 Amazon purchase with MasterCard

EDIT: Deal now dead!

Apologies for this slightly off-topic additional post, but this is an excellent deal which will only be around for a very short time I think.

And, hey, I’ve got Amazon affiliate links!  And a few travel MasterCard cards ….

Amazon and MasterCard are running a great deal today.  You receive £5 off a purchase of £10 or more when you use the code MCARD5OFF.

I have just tested this a few minutes ago and it works fine.

Amazon 6

The rules appear to be:

You can only buy items sold by Amazon, not by third parties

You CANNOT buy gift vouchers

£10 is, coincidentally, now the cut-off point for free Super Saver Delivery so you won’t pay any postage either.

You can visit Amazon via this link – Head for Points will make a few pennies (literally!) on your purchase to help keep us ticking over!  Thank you.

(Thanks to the two people who posted this in the comments)

  1. Does it have to be £10 exactly or is it a minimum £10 spend? I don’t mind either way but it would be more useful on a £30 gift :)

  2. I think the item might need to be purchased from Amazon, rather than via a third party via the Amazon site?

    I tested 2 purchases – one for a book (worked fine), one for a pair of shoes (third party), didn’t work?

  3. Just a cheeky tip, if your order comes to £9.99 just add on a 1p sim card, it’s what i did last night to up it to the £10 limit 😉

  4. Thank you, the code worked:-)

  5. I’m trying to pay with gift codes.

    I get the £5 off initially, but then when I change back to gift card, it seems to want to take the entire balance including the £5 off from the gift code.

    • Can be a fiddle. Set the MasterCard as your default payment. It’s under account settings manage address book. Might need to set it on billing and delivery address.

      • set biling card as master card and allow payment to go through(with £5 discount) then go to your orders: click on apply gift certificate to this order. then balance will be taken from your gift cert balance and nothing from payment card (MC).

  6. The rules DO NOT say you can’t use the same MasterCard more than once. If you have genuine multiple Amazon a/cs available (say, the wife’s and a sibling’s) then Amazon do not seem to be cancelling orders.

  7. Note: Only enter the code when you reach the final “Confirm” page (i.e. the page AFTER you have selcected Mastercard as your payment method). It doesn’t work if you try to use the code on the earlier pages.

  8. They’ve simply had no problem fulfilling multiple orders with the same MC card PROVIDED the a/cs are genuine & longstanding.

    I think most people getting cancelled orders are just chancers or silly students trying about 10 new a/cs with the same card.

    Sorted out my Henry Hoover dustbag requirements for the next couple of years 😉

  9. I tried using it to purchase from a seller “fulfilled by amazon”, but it didn’t work.

    Paid an extra pound to buy it from amazon – so four quid saving !

    Thanks

    a pack of 2 LED lamps at £5 after the discount! good stuff

  12. still working thankfully. also used the gift certificate trick so essentially paid with amex 😉

  13. Seems to have expired.

  14. Dammit.too late now expired :-(

  15. Haha. Yep saw that! Blooming students!

  16. There’s now a £5 off £40 Mastercard spend offer – https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html?docId=1000842673 – code PRICELESS5

  17. Not as good as the previous Amazon offer but Mastercard are running another Amazon promo of £5 off a £40 purchase via Amazon.co.uk

    As before, items must be sold by amazon not marketplace and doesn’t include gift cards.
    Also as before, the code needs to be entered on the promo code box final page (NOT the payment page).

    This time the code is: PRICELES5 (Note the number 5 instead of a second S)
