For a couple of years, Amazon has been offering a £15 discount on a £25 spend for anyone who links their Amex Gold or Amex Platinum card to their amazon.co.uk account and part-pays with Membership Rewards points.
It is still working – I did it on Saturday for my wife. This is what to do:
Link your Membership Rewards account with your Amazon account by visiting this page on the Amazon website (ignore the ‘£25 off £40’ offer described on that page)
Buy £25 of items on amazon.co.uk (these MUST all be sold by Amazon and not third party merchants, and excludes digital content and gift cards)
IMPORTANT: Items must be purchased in a single order and shipped at the same speed to a single address
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 10 points for a 5p 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 10 of your valuable points on such a poor deal!
Do NOT add the code at this point. Click ‘Use This Payment Method’ and continue to the final payment screen.
Enter code AMEX16SWP at check out (the code must go in after you have selected part-payment with your Membership Rewards-registered card) – do NOT use AMEX25SWP which is the targeted £25 offer
As can see from the landing page above, there is also a TARGETED version of this offer doing the rounds. 8,400 people can save £25 on a qualifying purchase of £40.
Only one HFP reader has told me that they received an invitation. If you are spending £40, try out the £25 code to see if it works – it is AMEX25SWP – but if it fails then AMEX16SWP should work if you’ve never used it before.
If you make your purchase via this Amazon link (click), Head for Points gets a small commission on your purchase and it helps keep us ticking over.
