can certainly try, no promise it will work.

YMMV.  Didn't work for me.

The deal worked for me. Thanks.

Elsewhere people said that 3rd party gift cards bought on Amazon work. Maybe Amazon gift cards aren't eligible?

rated:
only these cards?
 

    The Platinum Card® from American Express
    Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express
    Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card from American Express
    Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express

picked up Staples GC. thank you.

And didn't work on a platinum or business gold card.

I have Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express but it doesnt seem like its working for me.
This is the first time am using Amex for paying in Amazon. I tried putting Staples GC in the cart.    

rated:
has to be a card that you get rewards points for, you can put in 1 point(.01) and the rest $24.99 is paid by your AMEX CC. 3rd party GC are OK can't get Amazon GC or pay a portion with Amazon GC.

This does not seem to work on cashback cards, only travel cards with "points".

This sounds like a good deal for me

Just worked with AMEX EveryDay card, which is a CB card..

rated:
thanks for sharing.

Be careful with this deal. I used to have my thankyou from Citi VISA linked (one of the cards featured) and the point conversion multiplier was much less than the equivalent value of just buying gift cards directly from the credit card rewards site. In other words, you lose ~ 20% of equivalent value by using points to purchase on Amazon.

AMEX EveryDay is a Membership Rewards card, not a CB card.

It doesn't work if you had previously linked your Amex card and have used similar offer within the last 24 months.

  hmmm....not sure about that....pretty sure I used the AMEX16EVER and this worked again....not sure if I was using the same Amex card though.....I have had multiple ones linked but haven't used rewards points from all of them on Amazon before.

  Use $1 worth of your points.  You lost 20 cents to save $25.

Has anyone been able to find any "eligible purchases"? I linked my card and tried it on several items, none was "eligible"...

  Same problem here. I can't find any eligible products.

Is there any way to search for products "sold and shipped by Amazon"

1. The most optimized way to use AMEX MR is to transfer to airline miles that you happen to have a usage. One example of best redemption is to transfer to Virgin Atlantic. US mainland - Hawaii round trip business class meeds 80,000 miles. It is over $1300 if pay by cash. There'e lots of other trips and other airline miles AMEX MR can transfer to, making it very possible to redeem AMEX MR at 1.5-2 cents per point. (Waring: airline award tickets may have limited availability. Make sure it's available before transferring AMEX MR to miles).

2. Redeem as Gift card when AMEX has promotion. The best promotion in the history is 5,000 points for $100 gap gift card, which was several years ago and never repeated. Although not so great, there might be still some good promotions. With them, the value of MR could be more than 1 cent (of gift card value) each point.

3. Sell at brokers for cash. This option is in gray area. AMEX MR doesn't want you to do it, but AMEX MR wouldn't know if you do it. One reliable broker is milesp2p.com which has good reputation online and over two thousand facebook likes. As of now (March 2017), price for AMEX MR is 1.3 cents/point.

4. Buy stuff as Amazon at 0.7 cent/point. Add your AMEX credit card, and the option will come up automatically at Amazon payment page. However since the value is too low, try to avoid it as possible.
