How to Get Targeted for the 20% Off Amazon Deal
I am sure most of you are probably tired of reading about this 20% off Amazon deal. Not me, because it is easy $$$. I used the offer twice for my account and once for my wife’s account (she wasn’t targeted the first time around).
That got me to thinking, how could I increase my bandwidth with this deal? I decided to check my Dad’s account but he wasn’t targeted :(. Perseverance led me to a way around that. I turned that denial into an approval!
My father does not have a Membership Rewards earning credit card but I wanted to check to see if he was targeted anyway. I checked the link but it said he wasn’t targeted. I figured it may be because he didn’t have a pay with points option so I added one of our MR earning cards to his account. After that I set up the pay with points for our card on his account and checked again, but still no dice.
I have heard that the system can take a few days to register the change. So I gave it 2 days and checked again and Bam! it was working. I ordered up $500 in Lowe’s gift cards for $400. Amazon gift cards were not working even when $100 of Lowe’s was already in the cart. I think you had to get in the first time around for Amazon to be an option.

There are two takeaways from this:
- If you weren’t targeted the first time it could be because you didn’t have a Membership Rewards card set up or didn’t have the pay with points option activated.
- If you don’t have a Membership Rewards earning card you can use someone else’s to get the offer.
Give it a couple of days once you set it up and check again. Maybe check some family member’s accounts to get a few more deals in. Hope this helps some of you that missed out the first time. And if you were on living under a rock and never checked before you better check now!
