Up to 50% off at Amazon with your American Express card | US News

Most American Express card members typically think of their Amex points as opportunities for amazing travel opportunities

While that’s true, there’s another lesser-known use for them — redeeming them for purchases at Amazon.

And Amazon is back at it again with a terrific promotion where you can actually save money by using your Amex points this way
