New targetted promo: £10 off £20 spend at Amazon with American Express

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

American Express and Amazon have quietly launched another promotion.  This is effectively free money if you are targetted for it.

You will receive £10 cashback when you make a £20 purchase at before 6th December.

To see if you are targetted, log into your online Amex account here and look under ‘Offers’ on each of your online statement pages.  My wife and I have five Amex cards between us and it was only showing on her Amex Gold.

Your odds are not great, unfortunately, but it is worth a look.


Only 15,000 registrations are allowed, so click ‘Save To Card’ immediately.  You can then make a purchase at your convenience before the deadline of 6th December.

However, the easiest thing to do is to go to this page and top up your Amazon account balance with £20.  This is a new feature and is quicker than buying an Amex gift card and emailing it to yourself.  If you do this, you are not taking any risk that you forget to make the £20 spend in time.

    Having the MBNA Diamond Club AMEX card I suppose means I am not eligible for these offers?

    • No, not unless it eventually appears on the Amex Connect site.

      • Which is very likely, judging by previous promotions. My guess is that Amex targets certain cardholders first – selected on various criteria such as infrequent Amazon use. Then if the 15,000 allocation is falling short, they open it out on Amex Connect etc

        Early bird etc

    Only appeared on my Gold not the other three. Gold was the only one were there was no Amazon spend already.

  3. Didn’t get the offer. Recently got a BA card but have already used it to spend at Amazon.
    So far only had (and used) one offer on this card from
    How long does it take before offers start to roll in on a newly opened card account?
