Between Amazon Prime Day offers, a $10 bonus with your first Amazon Cash reload, and discounts for using an Amex Membership Reward point at check-out, there have been lots of amazing Amazon discounts available recently. So many in fact that this $5 Amazon discount may seem pretty ho-hum compared to some of the others. However, $5 is still $5 in my book, so at the risk of treading in Amazon-discount-overload territory, here is how to potentially save $5 on an eligible $50+ Amazon order if you have a Citi ThankYou card.

The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express

This $5 on an eligible order of $50+ shipped and sold by Amazon (not including Amazon gift cards) is available for those with a linked Citi card that earns ThankYou points if you pay with that card and use at least one ThankYou point towards your total. I can’t promise this discount will work on every single Amazon account since they like to play around with who is and isn’t eligible for this sort of thing, but it worked on our accounts.

In additional to paying with a Citi ThankYou card and using at least one ThankYou point, you need to enter the promo code 2017CITI5 in the checkout box. The $5 promo credit discount should then display at check-out. With this offer you should be able to pick up pretty much any of the third party $50 gift cards such as Southwest, Panera, Starbucks, Whole Foods, Nordstrom and more just for $44.99 + one Citi ThankYou point.

I’d love to know if this Amazon discount worked for your family!

    • Try just adding a Citi card to your Amazon payment account. I didn’t have to do any official linking the way I had to do with Amex…it automatically did that part as long as the Citi card was in my Amazon payment options. Let me know if that helps!

  1. I was hoping it would work with a Citi AA card (not ThankYou) but it doesn’t. Thank you for all your work on your blog! It’s such a great help.

  2. Added my Citi thank you preferred card, registered to use points, put in one point for payment, and applied the code – and the code didn’t work. 🙁

    • Oh no! I’m assuming you had $50 of items sold and shipped by Amazon in your cart. Amazon is so hot and cold with these things.
