Update: The Amex deal expired on February 29, 2020. The Discover deal is still available.

For a limited time, targeted Amex and Discover cardholders can receive an Amazon discount when using a single rewards point toward their purchase. For Amex, you can earn a discount of up to $50 (20% off a $250 purchase). For Discover, you'll get a flat discount of $20 when spending over $50 on Amazon products. The Amex discount may be ending January 31, 2020, so act fast to get this deal.

Amazon has published some conflicting information about the end date for the Amex promo. The terms and conditions still say February 29th. However, the end date was recently updated to January 31st, (according to Dr. of Credit) so it might be wise to make your purchase in the next few days.

Our Take

Getting an Amazon discount of 20% or $20 cashback when using a single point is an offer too good to pass up. However, using more than one Amex point isn't advised, even if that's the intention of this promotion, as the points can be worth as much as 2.5 cents each. Since Discover rewards come in the form of a cashback bonus, you'll be getting the normal, fixed value of your rewards if you apply more points; you won't lose out on any value if you decide to apply more Discover points to your Amazon purchase.

These deals are only for targeted members and expire soon (end of February for Amex; end of March for Discover – or when the promotions reach the maximum number of redemptions). Thus, make your purchase soon to take advantage of this offer. Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Will you spend the full $250 on your significant other to get your Amazon discount?
