Amazon 20% with 1 Amex MR point (working again)

Amazon and American Express have another great deal where you can get up to 20% off by just redeeming 1 Amex MR (Membership Rewards) point for any merchandise purchase shipped and sold by Amazon.  The maximum discount is $50, and can be applied multiple purchases totaling $250.  Amex MR card holders who reported that they were ineligible for a similar promo last month are now reporting that they are eligible for this one.  To see if you're eligible, go to the promo link and click on "Activate now":

Unfortunately, it looks like this offer no longer applies to 3rd party gift cards like Safeway, Uber, Home Depot, etc. and is only good for merchandise.

Quick thoughts

It's great to see Amazon and Amex consistently bring back these promos as they are an easy 20% off.  Although 3rd party gift cards are no longer eligible, I'm sure you'll find plenty to buy on Amazon as most of us are unfortunately hunkered in and avoiding the supermarkets due to the coronavirus.  The terms state that the offer expires at the earlier of April 20, 2020 or when 40,000 customers have redeemed this promo, so I wouldn't delay on activating and redeeming this offer especially with the multitude of us surviving off Amazon at this time.
