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.
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:
- Link your Citi card to your Amazon account here to allow you to pay with points.
- Select items that are sold by Amazon.com and shipped by Amazon.
- 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.
- 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.
In the end, I was able to order two of these awesome light bulbs for $4.24! What will you buy with your free $10??
