AMEX - Spend $99+ on Amazon Prime Membership, get 5000 Reward Points in Your AMEX Account (YMMV)

-1 Deal Score
*Likely a huge YMMV* I went through the "re-registering or re-adding" trick of my AMEX Everyday Card (no fee card) to see if I can get any of the recent deals that get 10% credit when paying your cell phone bill or cable bill and got the following offer (see below). My Amazon Prime is up for renewal in a month so this is perfect for me as I just set the payment to my AMEX Every card to take advantage of this offer. Of course, this is highly YMMV (not sure if it will work on any type of AMEX card, it works on my AMEX Everyday). 5000 point is equivalent to $50 cash I believe. Also I was able to get the $30 off $60 Amazon credit with this card but haven't used it yet; I'm waiting for BF; I wonder this offer was given to me because I registered to get the $30 off $60 Amazon deal.

I guess if your Amazon Prime is not up for renewal, you can buy yourself an Amazon Prime membership to use and wait until it's up for renewal; anyone done this before?

This was the "re-adding your card to your account" trick to get an offer:

Quote :
If you don't see the offer under Amex Offers & Benefits, try the steps below:
Click on 'Account Services' Tab
Click on Register a New Card and Re-add the same Card
Now recheck Amex Offers & Benefits to see if you have the offer
If you don't see the offer, your account may not qualify

Just login to your account from a pc. On top right corner click on your card and select add new card. Enter the same card details again and it will list you some offers. I tried it last week and now I see the Amex prime deal twice under offers

both the card re-registration and the amazon/cable amex-offer deals are all dupes. there is a lot of VERY good information in those other threads that you won't get from this thread so i would completely ignore the guessing in the first post and get some real answers in the other threads if you want some success and don't want to spend a lot of time learning and re-learning what has already been thoroughly discussed. ymmv.

This is actually a very solid post, to me at least.

I missed the Amazon prime deal (they were in my Amex cards but somehow all of them disappeared after a few days). I used the trick it get it back.

Thank you very much OP!!!
