ENDING SOON: £15 off £25 Amazon purchase for ALL Amex Gold and Platinum holders

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

For the last 20+ months, Amazon has been offering an exclusive £15 discount code for Amex Gold, Green and Platinum charge card holders when they spend £25 or more. 

This offer expires on 31st August.  If you haven’t taken advantage of it yet – probably because you didn’t have an Amex Gold or Platinum when it launched – this is your last chance.

(Or perhaps not your last chance.  It has been extended three times already!  You’ve only yourself to blame if you don’t buy something now and it doesn’t get extended again though!)

You will save £15 on your next Amazon order of £25 or more as long as you part-pay with Membership Rewards points from your Amex Gold or Platinum card.


This is what to do:

If you have not already done so, link your Membership Rewards account with your Amazon account by visiting this page on the Amazon website

Buy £25 of items on (these MUST all be sold by Amazon and not third party merchants, and excludes digital content and gift cards)

You MUST select your Membership Rewards-earning Amex card as your payment card (you cannot use gift cards or any other payment source)

Part-pay for your order using Membership Rewards points.  The sneaky option is to redeem just 2 points for a 1p discount.  This saves you ‘wasting’ MR points on a low value redemption.  You will only get 0.45p per point and you shouldn’t waste more than 2 of your valuable points on such a poor deal!  (One comment below suggests that 10 points may be required, so 5p!).

Enter code AMEX16SWP at check out (the code must go in after you have selected part-payment with your Membership Rewards-registered card)

The Amazon link above (and here) pays HFP a small commission if you use it – thank you.  You pay the same regardless.

This offer is open to all UK American Express Gold, Green and Platinum cardholders.  It does not seem to work for American Express Rewards (blue) credit card holders.  Your Amazon account must have been opened before 28th October 2017 – creating a brand new Amazon account just to take advantage of this offer will not work.

    I thought id give it a go and it worked.

    New MR account but used the £15 off with this Amazon account about 7-8 months ago.

    Worth a go £15 for 2MR is a great deal 🙂

  2. This is a scam and the code does not work.


  3. Just used it – worked perfectly. Thanks Rob.

  4. toomanylogins says:

    Thanks for the reminder – I had used it previously but have just got a new gold amex and it worked again with no issues.

    • Peter K says:

      Likewise. Same Card works on multiple Amazon accounts. Multiple Amex MR accounts work on the same Amazon account (at least they have done for me with a few months gap).

  5. Thanks Rob – as a newbie to Amex Gold (switched from Virgin MBNA), I wasn’t aware of this.
    Just grabbed a book from my list. Thanks for highlighting!

  6. Paul Hockaday says:

    Am I correct in assuming it does NOT apply to BA Amex Cards?

  7. Thanks Rob – wasn’t aware of this offer as I only moved back to Platinum a few months ago. A bit of messing about while I tried to find items that were sold by Amazon EU Sàrl (couldn’t tell until checkout, though easy enough to delete and replace offending items whilst leaving the rest as is) but when I finally got that right, it worked a treat ????

  8. 2p is enough! I got an Echo Dot for £19.98 with that promotion.

  9. For anyone else who might be struggling to have the code accepted, make sure that all of the items are being delivered with the same delivery speed. I had one that was only available for ‘standard delivery’, while the rest were next day and the code wouldn’t work. Changed all items to standard delivery and the code was accepted.

    • Thanks @AJC for the tip. I was struggling with exactly that situation, and your solution worked a treat.

  10. The actual expiry on this promotion is at 23:59 GMT on 31/10/2018 or when 33,333 customers have claimed the promotion code, whichever is earlier.

    just to confirm the code still works as of 03/09
