Amazon discount code is now ‘£5 off £20’ and still working!

A quick post to say that the Amazon promotional code that I highlighted recently is, amazingly, still working.

(This could be, of course, because their partner American Express seems to have forgotten to tell anyone about it!)

Even more amazingly, in a desperate attempt to use up all of the 12,000 x £5 discount codes, Amazon has now halved the qualifying spend.


You now only need to spend £20 on Amazon to receive a £5 discount. The only conditions are that you pay with an American Express card and that your purchases are bought from Amazon and not a 3rd party seller who sells via Amazon. The code can only be used once per Amazon account.

The Amazon discount code you need is AMEX5OFF. You can find full details of the offer here.

This link includes our affiliate tracking code, so please click through it if using the discount.

(PS. The photo above is from Grindlewald in Switzerland, taken by me a couple of years ago. I used it because I wrote this at the last minute, we are travelling, I only have the iPad, and I am therefore restricted to using pictures on the iPad! It was the most scenic shot I could find ….)

  3. Just used it again on 17/12/13 using my wife’s card. Still working!

  4. December 18th still working

  5. On a separate but related note, I’ve just discovered that the bonus points you get in the first year using an AmEx Preferred Rewards Gold card (generally for travel, groceries and petrol) extends to Amazon – double points on all my Amazon purchases!
