I hope you had a great, relaxing, and (ful)filling Thanksgiving Week, and now with that behind us we are unquestionably into the Winter Holiday Season with today of course being “Cyber Monday”, one of the busiest online shopping days of the year. As you may have noticed, many of the online Cyber Monday deals started well before today (so some of these listed below are a repeat), but there is a Cyber Monday Deals Round-Up…

Staples.com had multiple gift card discounted online today, though at this moment many are “sold out”. You can earn 5x on your Chase Ink Plus or similar for this office supply store purchase and/or use an Amex Offer for Staples.com if you have one added to your Amex card account.

Lots of Deals at Amazon.com
There is an eclectic mix of discounts available on Amazon.com, so I recommend you just head over there and browse the Amazon Cyber Monday portion of the site. Even if you don’t need anything for yourself, this might be a great time to purchase a toy for a kid in need, or similar. Here are a few of the many discounts I found:
Get a $10 Amazon Gift Card when you spend $20 or more on an Alexa Deals
Save $6 On $60 Amazon Pantry Order
I received this email from Amazon and it seems to not be targeted as it displays incognito as well, but I can’t find the terms anywhere.
Take $25 off $50 Amazon Order With One Membership Rewards Point
This one won’t work for everyone, but it worked for me and others I know on a retailer gift cards and otherwise and I know I have used a similar deal in the past. If you use even just one American Express Membership Reward point towards your $50 Amazon order you can potentially save $25 off the $50 order using discount code AMEX16EVER as shown below.
1. Add $50 or more of eligible products sold and shipped by Amazon.com to your shopping cart.
2. Under “Choose a payment method,” select your Membership Rewards eligible American Express Card and pay for at least a portion of your order with Membership Rewards points, then click “Use this payment method.”
3. Enter the promo code AMEX16EVER in the box provided on the checkout page, then click “Apply.”
4. Up to $25 of savings will be reflected on the final order checkout page.
Full terms and conditions
- To use this promotion, you must enter “HOLIDAYBOOK” at checkout under the “Gift cards & promotional codes” section to receive $10 off any books purchase of $25 or more.
- This offer is valid on print books only. Excludes eBooks and Audiobooks, Book Rentals and Amazon Gift Cards.
This excludes a few items such as gift cards, but is a decent deal that will stack with most sale prices on many items.
