During this month I fully expect the deals and offers on Amazon to heat up as the holiday shopping craze intensifies, but there are a few ways to save on Amazon right now if you need to place an order today. I’ll quickly run through the four deals I spotted on Amazon this morning, but if you know of another one, please drop a note in the comments!

$50 iTunes Gift Card for $42.50 on Amazon

Right now on Amazon via one of their “Daily Deals” you can get a $50 iTunes gift card for just $42.50 with no special codes or handshakes needed.

Save $10 on Amazon by Changing One-Click Card to a Citi Card

This offer has been around for various Amazon accounts at various times for quite a while, but it popped up on my screen again last night, so it might be worth checking to see if your account is targeted (again) to get a $10 Amazon credit by changing your one-click purchase credit card to one issued by Citi (excluding the Costco card). You can see if you are eligible clicking on the link above or just paying attention the next time you are on Amazon.

Save $10 on Amazon TVs and Projectors by Selecting No Rush Shipping

If you have Amazon Prime, you can select free No-Rush Shipping and Amazon will apply a $10 reward to your account to use on a future TV or Projector purchase made by January 1, 2018. This could be a good strategy if you think you might purchase a TV from Amazon during the holiday season.

Save on Fire Tablets With One Amex Membership Reward Point

This deal has also been around in some fashion for a bit, but if you have an Amex Membership Rewards earning card such as The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card as a payment method in your Amazon account, then you can use as few as one Membership Reward point along with a promo code to save $20 – $300 on eligible new Fire Tablets.

  • If you want to save $20 on a Fire 7 tablet use the promo code FIRE7TAB along with at least one Membership Reward point.
  • If you want to save $30 on a Fire HD 8 tablet use the promo code FIRE8TAB along with at least one Membership Reward point.

I actually stocked up on some of these a few weeks ago while using a similar promo and plan to give them to teens who have wished for a tablet on local holiday “Angel Trees”. Most people ignore those holiday wishes in favor of the younger kiddos who want toys, likely fearing that a tablet is too expensive. However, a tablet does not have to be too expensive if you buy in the right way at the right time.

Comments

    • Not by itself, but if you are planning to scoop up a Black Friday TV then this is a way to be strategic now on your next order of something like paper towels in order to save $10 more dollars on Black Friday or whenever you make your TV purchase.

  1. Stack savings by using the Trueblue shopping portal to earn Trueblue points and using your Discover card to get 5% cash back as well.

  2. Just a comment on iTunes cards. Costco usually have a promotion where you $84.49 for a $100 iTunes card. Not always but couple times a year.
