ENDING SOON: £25 off £40 Amazon purchase for Amex Gold and Platinum holders

Amazon is currently offering an exclusive £25 discount code for some or all Amex Gold, Green and Platinum card holders when they spend £40 or more. 

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

You will save £25 on your next Amazon order of £40 or more as long as you part-pay with Membership Rewards points from your:

American Express Preferred Rewards Gold Card
Amex EveryDay Credit Card
Amex EveryDay Preferred Credit Card
The Platinum Card
American Express Green Card
Blue from American Express

Importantly, if you took advantage of a similar offer in the past (not the recent past, I’m talking 2018 or earlier), it seems to be letting you have the discount again.

IMPORTANT:  the small print says that this offer is ‘by invitation only’.  This has historically not been an issue but you won’t know until you try.


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 £40 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 AMEX25OFF 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, and helps keep us ticking over – thank you.  You pay the same price for your items regardless.

Your Amazon account must have been opened before 31st December 2018 – creating a brand new Amazon account just to take advantage of this offer will not work.  There may also be some restrictions on who qualifies, but we have never seen major problems in the past.
