Amazon x AMEX: $30 off orders of $60+ with Rewards Redemption [YMMV/invited]

If you are an frequent amazon.com shopper, and you have an American Express credit card that is participating in Membership Rewards (the green ones with the points, the “Blue” with the cash rewards), then you may eligible for a new promotion that gets you up to $30 off with a purchase of $60+. This is by invitation, so you must be logged-on to your Amazon account to see if you qualify [see link at the bottom]

You may also notice the banner appearing at the top of Amazon.com pages while you are logged on to your Amazon account if you are eligible for the promotion. The picture below is a screenshot crop of one such banner:

To get this discount you must:

  1. activate the offer in your account [see link below]
  2. you must put a $60+ in eligible products in your shopping cart
  3. you must pay (at least partially) by redeeming AMEX Membership Rewards (the rest will be paid by the AMEX credit card that is linked to the rewards points)
  4. the discount will appear at the final checkout page, right before you push the “Place Order” button

You can find the activation button and all the terms and condition at the Promotional page. The offer runs until 12/31/19.

NOTE that you can redeem as few or as many AMEX Rewards Points for the redemption promotion. You have that option in the shopping cart. For example, let’s say you are buying a $99 lens. You can select to redeem only 1,000 AMEX Rewards points [even though your AMEX Membership Rewards account has more points available], and pay the rest with the AMEX credit card. (I don’t remember what happens to the order of payment if you have a Gift Card or any promotional credits already sitting in your account).

Adorama: Bonus Finance Offers with select Camera Gear purchases of various brands

While reading through the previously posted “Nikon Z” post, I also run into this Adorama financing promotion that gets you special financing terms on select camera gear purchases from various brands. The various eligible products are listed at the long aforelinked page.

Participating products on the page include select Canons (cameras, lenses, printers), and Nikons (Z cameras) and Sony (APS-C a series) and BOSE (no cameras), and PenTax (K-1 II and 645 gear).

NOTE that items may get added and/or removed from the list as each offer has its own expiration date.

As always, read thoroughly the terms and conditions and restrictions of the financing offers and make sure you understand them before jumping in with both feets!

For a limited time, until Monday night [or earlier if funds are depleted {whatever that means}], the Monoprice website is offering 10% off IF you checkout using Amazon Pay. This is Amazon’s payment service, which, you guessed it, uses your Amazon payment account information to make payments on other services and websites…

Prime Credit Card Benefit: 15% back on select Panasonic cameras (GH-series, G/GX-series, LX-series, FZ-, ZS-, TS-)

+ GH5, GH5S, GH4, G9, GX9, G7, G85, GX85, GX850 M43rds iLCs

Amazon: 0% APR 12-month Equal Pay Offer on 500 Camera Items

Amazon has another financing promotion if you are planning to purchase select camera gear (plenty of DSLR and mirrorless options listed) and apply and get approved and pay for them with an Amazon Store Credit Card (not to be confused with the Amazon Chase VISA credit card). You pay 0% APR as long as you make 12 monthly equal payments. More details on the Promotion page.

As usual with credit offers, this makes sense if you are fairly certain you will be able to make the twelve payments on time, so you end up paying 0% APR.

PS: if you are a Prime member, when you apply, you could automatically be upgraded to a Prime Card which gets you 5% rewards back on purchases (see our previous post).
