Yesterday I posted about the extremely generous AmEx Sync promotion that’s presently available for Amazon purchases. If you make an Amazon purchase of $75 or more you get a $25 American Express statement credit, which is a pretty amazing value.
Anyway, it seems that the promotion gets even better than I originally thought for a few reasons:
- You don’t have to use Twitter to register, but can instead register through American Express’ website
- Amazon gift cards are eligible for the promotion
- You can register multiple American Express cards, so this is a great opportunity to basically get 33% off all your Amazon purchase (up to the limit of how many American Express cards you have)
So here’s how you can best take advantage of this promotion:
Step 1: Enroll your American Express Card(s) for the offer
Go to this page and enter your name, American Express card number, and email address to confirm registration. Note that registration is limited, so you’ll want to register your cards as soon as possible. All personal and small business American Express cards should be eligible, including those issued by Citi, Bank of America, etc.
Once you enter your information you’ll be brought to a page confirming your registration.
You’ll also receive an email confirming your registration:
You’ve successfully registered your Card ending in 91004.
Get a $25 statement credit when you spend a total of $75 or more on your registered card at Amazon.com by December 31, 2013.

Step 2: Make a $75 or more Amazon purchase using your enrolled American Express card
Once registered just make a $75 or more purchase at Amazon. You can either buy a product directly from Amazon or you can purchase an Amazon gift card, which is what I’d recommend doing. This way you can spend the credit at a later date and also maximize the bonus by purchasing them in exactly $75 increments. Amazon gift cards don’t expire.
Within minutes of making the purchase you should receive an email from American Express confirming you used your enrolled card, and the statement credit should post within 90 days.
Step 3: Use your Amazon gift card!
Your Amazon gift card should arrive via email within minutes with a code and a “Redeem now” button.
When you follow the “Redeem now” link you’ll be brought to a page that allows you to apply the gift card to your Amazon account.
Once you click “Apply to Your Account” your Amazon balance will reflect the amount of the gift card.
This is an incredible offer and registration is limited, so you’re definitely best off registering sooner rather than later. 33% off just about anything on Amazon is an amazing value, and the fact that you can register multiple cards is the icing on the cake. The whole process took me less than five minutes per card, which is tough to beat for $25 savings.
