Save $10 off $10 at Amazon using Citi ThankYou Points – YMMV

Screen Shot 2015-09-06 at 11.23.21 PM

Amazon has been promoting the “Shop with Points” feature recently.  Promotions have come and gone using Chase UR’s and Amex MR’s.  Now it is Citi’s turn to run a promo for paying with ThankYou points.  You can save $10 off of your purchase if you meet a few requirements.  

UPDATE: This deal has expired, however two more $10-off Amazon deals are currently active!  – Deal #1 and Deal #2

Also, check out our list of 20 travel-related Amazon items under $20!

First, and most importantly, you must have an eligible Citi credit card with ThankYou points.  Then you must complete the following steps:

  1. Link your Citi card to your Amazon account here to allow you to pay with points.
  2. Select items that are sold by and shipped by Amazon.Screen Shot 2015-09-06 at 10.58.15 PM
  3. Proceed to checkout and select your Citi card, and use the drop down to pay with points.  I chose to pay for $.04 with points, to use an even 5 TYPs.Screen Shot 2015-09-06 at 11.01.35 PM
  4. Enter the promo code SWP15C10AG.

If all goes according to plan, you should see a $10 credit on your order.  Orders under $10 will be free!  This should work if you have not used a pay with Thank You points promo before.  Some people have reported success in using the offer a second time by un-linking and re-linking their Citi card to their Amazon account.

I was unsuccessful in getting the code to work, so I contacted Amazon via chat.  I provided the rep with the promo code, and she checked my cart to confirm the items were sold and shipped by Amazon.  She then applied a $10 courtesy credit to my order!  If you are unable to get the TYP offer to work, I definitely recommend the chat approach.

  1. I just successfully obtained this credit using a new Citi TY points credit card. I had to use chat to have the $10 credit manually added but it worked.
