If you have an American Express credit card you may find a special offer in your inbox, one letting you take Amazon Prime for a test drive for free for three months. This offer is available until July 23rd, 2018, or until 160,000 people take them up on the promotion. It is a targeted promotion, so not everyone who has an American Express credit card will receive the offer.
American Express cardholders who do find this offer in their inbox will be able to get started with a click. But what can they get by signing up for this offer? Amazon Prime comes with a variety of perks, including access to Amazon Video, letting people watch a wide range of movies, videos and shows. They are also able to read books for free via Amazon's lending library, and get access to Prime Music.
What about shipping? Amazon Prime members can take advantage of free two-day shipping when making purchases via Amazon.
This promotion is only available to people living in the United States. After the three months, people who have not canceled their membership will be billed $119, which is the cost of the yearly membership for Amazon Prime.
American Express credit cards and AMEX Offers
There is a wide range of credit cards to choose from in the AMEX portfolio, including the Premier Rewards Gold card from American Express. This card lets people earn 25,000 bonus points with a $2,000 spend during the first 90 days of having the card.
Cardholders also earn triple points on flights when purchasing tickets directly through airlines, and double points when shopping at U.S.-based gas stations, supermarkets and restaurants. All other purchases earn one point per dollar.
One of the newest cards in their lineup is the American Express Cash Magnet card, offering 1.5% cash back on all purchases. There is no limit on how much cash back cardholders can earn with this card.
A $150 bonus comes with the package, kicking in once cardholders make a $1,000 spend during the first three months of having the card. They can also earn $150 more after spending $6,500 during the first year.
People with American Express credit cards can sign up for Amex Offers, which lets them pick and choose offers whether using the online portal or the mobile app.
When using the mobile app, they can look for offers while they are on the go, so they can earn cash back or points when eating out, shopping or having fun.
