Amazon $20 off $50 on ready for school items, electronics, and more with 1 Amex MR point

On the heels of last week's $20 off $50 promo offer, Amazon is now offering many Amex Membership Rewards (MR) cardholders another $20 off $50 on ready for school items, electronics, and more if they use just 1 MR point.  Ready for school items include school supplies, backpacks and accessories, electronics, boys and girls clothing, and cleaning and essentials, so you should be able to find something to max out on this offer.

To see if you are eligible for this widely targeted offer, go to the promo page and click on "Activate now".  Remember that your Amex MR card must be linked to your Amazon account and you must have enabled paying with points.  This promo ends on the earlier of (a) 11:59 PT on 8/30/2020, or (b) the time at which 100,000 customers have redeemed the offer, so don't delay.

How to maximize the offer

Since 1 Amex MR can only be redeemed for 0.7 cents towards Amazon purchases, it's best to use only 1 MR towards your $50+ purchase.  Although you have to use your linked Amex MR card and not another credit card for this purchase, you can apply your Amazon gift card balance for the purchase instead of charging it all to your Amex card.  This could be useful as the Chase Freedom's current Q3 5x bonus applies to Amazon, including Amazon gift card reloads.  Simply use your Chase Freedom to add to your Amazon gift card balance (and earn 5x), then checkout with your gift card balance and the 1 Amex MR.

Bottom line

Although not as generous as last week's $20 off $50 offer for Amex MR cardholders, this new promo will still allow many users to get up to 40% off on items they normally purchase, such as cleaning and essentials.  And if you've got an electronics purchase in mind, such as an iPad or a new pair of headphones, this would be your opportunity to score $20 off.
