Amazon: Pay with American Express Points, Get $20 off $50 (Targeted)
If you have an American Express card with Membership Rewards (MR) points, you can redeem them to buy eligible items at Amazon.com. The redemption rate is 100 MR points = $0.70 to spend at Amazon, which is less than a cent per point and thus not really the ideal use of MR points. However, here are two targeted promotions where you can save money after redeeming just 1 single MR point.

My two “keeper” consumer American Express cards are the Blue Cash Preferred from AmEx (6% cash back on US supermarkets, up to $6,000 annually) and the Amex EveryDay Card (keeps my Membership Rewards points active with no annual fee, helps qualify for various Amazon promotions).
My favorite business American Express card is the Blue Business Plus Card – 2X points on all purchases, up to $50,000/year. No annual fee.
