Direct link to offer:  https://amzn.to/2TWqeZd

A new batch of targeted offers is going around. Amazon.com and American Express are running a promotion where you can get $30 off $60 your Amazon.com purchase when you pay with at least one MR point. The offer is targeted, and you must activate it to qualify.

 The fine print

  • The promotion will end at 11:59 PT on 12/31/2019.

  • Offer applies only to the purchase of at least $60 of eligible products, where Membership Rewards points are used for at least a portion of the purchase and the promotion code is entered at checkout. Taxes, gift-wrap, and shipping and handling charges do not apply when determining minimum purchase amount.

  • The maximum benefit you may receive from this offer is $30 per eligible Membership Rewards enrolled Card.

  • Offer is not available to American Express Membership Rewards eligible cards whose points have been previously used for purchases at Amazon.com in the past twelve months.

  • Offer only applies to eligible products shipped and sold by Amazon.com.

  • To redeem the offer, you must be logged into an account which has been active for 30 days or longer.

Reminder: Activate 5% Category Credit Cards

July 1 marks the start of Q3 2019. Be sure to ACTIVATE the quarter on your 5% rotating category cards like the Chase Freedom and Citi Dividend cards.

If you're not working on a min spend, and even if you are, I'm a huge fan of 5% back cards since they require very little effort every 3 months to get a lot of value.

Amex Platinum 100k Offer via CardMatch

A new round of targeted offers have been sent out. People have reported getting the targeted 100k Amex Platinum and 50k Amex Gold offers.

The Delta cards are worth considering if you are over Chase 5/24, and you already have arelationship with American Express.

Otherwise, I suggest getting additional Chase cards while you still can or try to get the targeted Amex Platinum 100k offer. Learn more about CardMatch in this post.

I've talked about Delta cards in the past before, but I'm a fan due to the bonuses and downgrade paths on the personal side to the no annual fee Delta Blue.
