Just under the wire for Christmas, you may now be able to get $10 off a purchase of at least $10 on when you link a credit card from a participating loyalty program—including Membership Rewards, Ultimate Rewards and ThankYou Rewards—and use a minimum of 1 point and the promo code SWP10HOL for the purchase. This targeted offer may or may not work with your account, but if it does, it will be valid through January 12, 2015.


To qualify for the offer, the item(s) you purchase on must be both sold and shipped by; that is, they can't be items sold and shipped by a third party. However, the website's gift cards for third-party merchants (e.g., Nordstrom's, Starbucks, AMC Theatres, etc.) are eligible and make good last-minute holiday presents, so be sure to see the complete list of gift cards sold on Amazon.

All gift cards are eligible for this targeted offer.

To see if you're targeted for this offer, you'll first have to link an eligible, affiliated loyalty program credit card to your account. Hyperlinked to their respective promo pages, these are the credit cards/programs participating in this offer: Rewards Visa
American Express Membership Rewards
Chase Ultimate Rewards
Citi ThankYou Rewards

Once you've loaded your shopping cart with $10 or more worth of eligible items, choose your linked credit card as your form of payment. You'll then see a box with a few choices, including “Choose a different amount,” where you should enter the number of points you want to use towards your purchase. The minimum amount required for this offer is 1 point, so type .01 to represent 1 point— and get the most bang for your spend.

The credit card linked to your card will ask you to enter an amount of points—and you should enter .01 for 1 point
The credit card linked to your account will prompt you to enter a payment amount for your purchase, and you should enter .01 for 1 point.

On the check out page, in the box titled "Gift cards & promotional codes," enter the promo code SWP10HOL. If you're not targeted for this offer, you'll receive the following message: “The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.”

It appears I'm not one of the lucky targeted few.

If you are targeted, though, the total amount displayed on the right-hand side will reflect that $10 has been discounted from your purchase—like getting a gift for giving a gift. I hope this offer works for you, as a little extra cash on Christmas Eve never hurt anyone.

Happy holidays, everyone!

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
