Best Amazon Prime Deals
There are oh so many ways to save money with credit card rewards and sometimes you can even save money just for having certain credit cards as a payment method on your Amazon account. Let’s walk through the best Amazon Prime Deals 2021 and some current promotions that can help you save big money with certain credit cards during Prime Day 2021. First to save any money or get any of the Prime Day Deals you must be an Amazon Prime member– if you don’t already have Prime you can sign up for a free 30 day trial here. Also, if you happen to be buying a Prime Membership, Amazon Device or Amazon Smart Home item, you’ll want to go through Top Cashback or another portal for an additional cashback bonus.
Before we get into the details- here’s a list of promotions that are targeted for certain customers.
- Buy $40 in Amazon Gift Cards, you’ll receive a $10 account credit. Click here to activate this promotion
- Save $40 with your Discover Card/ Save $30 with your Discover Card/ Save $20 with your Discover Card.
- Save $20 with your Citi Card.
- Save $40 with your Amex Membership Rewards Card/ Save $10 with your American Express Card.
- Save $15 with your Chase Card/ Save $10 with your Chase Card.
For each of these offers you must click the links below after you connected your eligible cards and once you’ve signed into your account click to the Yellow Activate Button.
$10 Credit with Purchase of $40 Amazon Gift Cards is Definitely one of the best deals
Set up Shop with Points on your Amazon Account to get the Best Deals
Make sure the eligible card is added to your Amazon.com payments wallet. Then you’ll click on the link below to enable the Shop with Points feature.
It’s really simple to set up your cards and link them to your amazon account. First you’ll need to set up your shop with points feature on Amazon, you can get the full details and set it up by heading over to the “Shop with Points” Page . Once you follow the instructions and the card is linked you’ll be able to start using the promotions listed below. I’m going to go through the Discover promotion first and then Citi step-by-step.
First Make Sure you Activate the Promotions by clicking the yellow button as pictured above. Then add eligible items
Add a qualifying item to to your cart. These are typically things shipped from and sold by Amazon.com. For example- If you want to easily see how it works before you select the items you purchase try it by adding one of these Amazon Devices (which are always sold by Amazon.com) Like this Fire HD8 Kids Pro Tablet- click here to add to you bag and follow along.
Proceed to Checkout by clicking on your cart or you can navigate to your cart by clicking here. Select payment method as your Discover Card and choose to apply your Discover Points. If you prefer not to use your cashback bonus you can change the amount to .01 and it will only apply one (1) point from your Discover Rewards Account. (see the screenshot below)
Here’s what it looks like if you only want to apply one point.
Make sure all of your savings have applied- as you can see this one is utilizing the 40% off with Discover Promotion
There are 3 separate Discover Promotions that I’m aware of- the following link will open to all of the ones available to your specific Amazon Account.
You can also (if targeted) save $20 when you add a discover card to your account and try to pay with it using the promo Code DiscoverPD.
Citi Thank You- Pay with Points Example
You’ll do exactly as you did in the last example but this time you’ll select a Thank You Rewards card as your payment method and then check the box where it says “Use Citi ThankYou Points Balance.” The ThankYou offer is for $20 off a $50″ order. Click here to see if you’re targeted: Citi Promotion Link
You’ll then select “Use this Payment Method” and you’ll see your details and what’s been applied as in this screenshot.
