Amazon announced today that American Express Cash Back Card Members can now conveniently redeem American Express Reward Dollars while shopping the hundreds of millions of items sold on Amazon.com and the Amazon mobile app, as part of the Amazon Shop with Points program.
This applies to American Express Cash Back Card Members with the Blue Cash Everyday®, Blue Cash Preferred®, Cash Magnet®, Morgan Stanley Blue Cash Preferred®, Blue Cash®, Business Blue Cash Rebate®, Classic Blue Cash for Business®, and Platinum Business Premium Cash Rebate card. They can now redeem American Express Reward Dollars while shopping the hundreds of millions of items sold on Amazon.com and the Amazon mobile app.
With this rollout, American Express Card Members have more choice and flexibility in how they pay for their Amazon purchases. Cardmembers simply link an enrolled, eligible American Express card to their Amazon.com account. At checkout, cardmembers select ‘Reward Dollars’ as the preferred payment method—choosing to use them to cover all or a portion of the total purchase amount. Once the order is ready to be placed, Reward Dollars that are applied to the order will be converted to dollars and deducted from the checkout total on the order summary page.
The value of Reward Dollars through the Shop with Points program is the same value as redeeming them as a statement credit today. So that should be one cent each for most American Express Cash Back Card Members. To enroll in the Shop with Points program or learn more about using American Express Reward Dollars via Shop with Points at amazon.com/amexcashback.
While this is not exactly exciting news, let’s hope that we see some Shop with Points deals for these cardholders.
