AMAZON OFFERS: £15 Amazon Discount + 1.5% Amazon Cashback

amazon discount code using amex shop with points

Amazon offers appear to be very popular with our readers (probably due to the fact that you can purchase almost anything from their site). There are a couple of attractive offers currently running, that are stackable, where you can discount your order by £15 and also earn 1.5% Amazon cashback at the same time.

£15 Amazon Discount

Amazon and American Express have been in partnership for a couple of years since they launched their “shop with points” feature for shoppers. Shop with points allows you to use American Express Membership Rewards points to pay for items on Amazon. Each AMEX Rewards points converts to 0.45p towards your Amazon purchase. In addition to the existing feature you currently receive £15 off an order of £25 or more using a promo code. The £15 Amazon discount code is valid until 30th June 2018.

To apply the discount to your Amazon purchase you need to:

  • Link your Amazon and American Express account together
  • Add £25 or more to your Amazon shopping cart and select your American Express card as the payment method
  • Enter the promo code AMEX16SWP in the box provided on the checkout page
  • Pay for at least a portion of your order with Membership Rewards points

Sneaky tip! To use the £15 Amazon discount code you do not need to pay for the entire order using American Express Rewards points – you can part pay. Redeeming just a few points, such as 10p of the total order will trigger the discount. Even if you part pay with AMEX Rewards points you will still save £15 on your next Amazon order of £25 or more.

Earn 1.5% Amazon Cashback

Last year Amazon launched their branded credit card in the UK. The card offers rewards to Amazon users, so if you regularly purchase from Amazon, this is probably better than your existing points/miles Mastercard or Visa credit card. New signups to the Amazon Platinum Mastercard receive £10 of Amazon account credit. The card is free and has no annual fee.
