£10 off a £50 Amazon order TODAY ONLY – stacks with £15 Amex Membership Rewards code

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

To celebrate being named Britain’s No 1 retailer for consumer satisfaction, Amazon is having a one day sale today. Long term readers may remember that they did a similar deal last year.

You will receive £10 off any order of £50 or more using the code BIGTHANKS.

Gift cards do not count, unfortunately. All items must be sold directly from Amazon and not from one of its partners.


Looking at the comments, this stacks with the American Express Membership Rewards ‘£15 off a £25 purchase’ offer I covered on Wednesday.

Our Amazon link is one of the ways we fund the site.  If you buy something through this offer using the link below, you can consider your HfP subscription for 2017 paid.

The Amazon home page is here.  Full terms and conditions for the offer can be found there.

The offer expires at midnight tonight, Friday.

    Tried creating an new account but failed. Let me know if it works for anyone.

    • J says:

      The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase. Is the error, just retried

    • czechoslovakia says:

      The Amex code worked on both my amazon accounts, but only once. I read there was a account opening cut-off date applied to stop abuse.

  • Charlie says:

    It does stack 🙂

    I did it this morning, got £25 off.

    • Charlie says:

      I suspect most people would have used the AMEX16SWP offer by now (and part pay with Membership Rewards), but if like me you have not then you should definitely do so today together with the BIGTHANKS offer.

  • angrey says:

    Off topic, but in your pocket 🙂

    Seriously, have you thought about adding a tip jar?

    • Andy says:

      I would love to see how many people actually give a tip to them when they cashout, it’s not like they’re a plucky little business, they have TV adverts!

      • Rob says:

        They are a huge business, I’ve met quite a few of the people there. If you knew how they make money off you, you wouldn’t be tipping them I promise ….

  • Greg says:

    Thanks for the heads up Rob, but I really thing this cheapens your otherwise excellent website. Sorry. Please concentrate on your core skills and leave the crap to somebody else.

    • Rob says:

      As it stacks with the MR offer, it isn’t actually off topic any longer 🙂

      I fully understand your sentiment and I only do this occasionally. I try to avoid off topic stuff (hence Shopper Points) because it sends mixed messages to the business travel community I spend the rest of my time trying to court.

      Note that I ran an identical post last year when they did this same deal. At the end of the day, you get a deal you may have missed and I get the office rent paid for a week, so everyone wins.

    • Mike says:

      How does it “cheapen” the web site ? He is trying to save us money

      • Rob says:

        See my other response, it is a fair point and I spend a lot of time trying to stop this site sliding too much into MSE territory. This one is good enough to let through though.

        • Kevin says:

          It saved me ten pounds on something I was looking to buy (ironically for travelling). So I think it’s a reasonable post. Thanks.

          • JamesWag says:

            Absolutely. The occasional post like this is very well received by myself & I’m sure most of the ‘community’.

      • the real harry1 says:

        it cheapens the website BECAUSE we have spent less money, therefore as any economist will tell you, our collective GDP has gone down

        simples 🙂

    • Mr Dee says:

      It was something that I didn’t know about so was helpful, I just have nothing I need to buy from Amazon right now.

      • the real harry1 says:

        nor have I, Mr Dee – just thinking that it only costs a couple of £ to return an item? would this work?

        • Mr Dee says:

          Yes but we are getting into wasting money territory, the best bet would be to buy something to resell …

  • Andy says:

    I am missing out on the MR promo. I was given a £200 gift card, applied it to my account and that has to be used first. No option to use points

    • Rob says:

      Not true. I have a £150 gift card balance.

      At checkout, you can elect to not pay with your gift card and use something else. Swap to your MR linked Amex and you can then choose to use MR points.

      • Andy says:

        Thanks didn’t notice that as it automatically applies the gift card

        • Genghis says:

          And I even managed to pay 2MR points for 1p off and use a gift card to pay the balance and still get the £15 off, though other commentators have reported they didn’t have such luck

  • Tom says:

    Just stacked successfully got £25 off. Had an existing Amazon account.

  • Rich says:

    Thanks. Stacked the two codes. It seemed to accept the £15 code but not the £10 when my order (through no choice of mine) was split into two deliveries, both sold despatched by Amazon. I changed some items and it worked when they were all on one delivery.

  • Andrew Clark says:

    Both of these plus I bought a £105 gift card for £100. Yay, free money!
