How to Get Amazon Gift Cards With Points By Vanessa Padgalskas, eHow Contributor

Found This Helpful

Certain American Express credit cards offer a Membership Rewards program that lets the credit card holder earn points for each dollar he charges. The rewards points can be redeemed on Amazon.com after the credit card is linked to an Amazon account. Use rewards points to pay for all or part of an Amazon order and use the American Express card to pay for any remaining balance.

Instructions

  • 1. Check that your American Express card has Membership Rewards at the American Express Membership Rewards eligibility Web page. Click "Enroll Now" at the top of the column where your American Express card is listed to enroll in Membership Rewards, if you are not already enrolled.

  • 2. Go to the Amazon.com Membership Rewards Web page to link your American Express card with your Amazon account and redeem points for Amazon products. Click "Get Started" located underneath the heading "Shop with Points at amazon.com."

  • 3. Sign in to your Amazon account and then click "Sign in using our secure server."

  • 4. Check the boxes at the top of the screen if your American Express card has a U.S. billing address or if you are the primary cardholder or the primary cardholder gave you permission to redeem points.

  • 5. Enter your American Express card number, the name on the card, the expiration date, security code and billing address. Click the box next to "I accept the following terms and conditions." Click "Link rewards account" when you are finished. Now your card is linked to your Amazon account and appears as one of your credit cards during the checkout process.

  • 6. Shop for a gift card on Amazon.com by clicking the "Gift Cards" link found at the top of most pages. Select the gift card design and enter the amount and other requested information. Click "Proceed to Checkout" when you are ready to check out. Select the method of payment by clicking on the circle next to your American Express card. Click the circle next to "Pay for entire order with points, " "Choose a different amount" or "Do not apply points." Under the option "Choose a different amount, " enter the dollar amount to which you want to apply points. For example, if your order costs $45, you can opt to apply points to only $20. Next to the box, the corresponding amount of points is listed. Continue your checkout process to complete the transaction.
