“For a limited time” and “while supplies last,” you can get a $50 Airbnb gift card through Amazon for just $35 thanks to Amazon’s Gold Box deals. All you need to do is enter promo code AIRBNB15 at checkout to receive the $15 discount. There’s a “limit of one per customer” which likely means one promotional code per Amazon account. The e-gift card is then emailed almost instantaneously upon purchase.

Maximize your purchase by using an American Express card that has the 3x Membership Rewards points Amex Offer for Amazon purchases. This promotion expires tomorrow (December 31), so it’s a great way to sneak in one last bonus. Otherwise, use the Rewards Visa Card to earn 3x points per dollar spent on this Amazon purchase. If you don’t have either of these, use a card that’s provides a solid return for everyday purchases, like the Chase Freedom Unlimited or Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express.

After you buy the e-gift card, make sure to link your Airbnb account to your Delta, United or Virgin America award accounts so you can earn bonus miles on future Airbnb stays. If you’re new to Airbnb, use TPG’s referral code to get a $35 stay credit. Combined with the Amazon flash sale, that’s $85 worth of lodging for just $35 out of pocket!

For existing users, make sure to refer your friends for up to a $35 credit, plus, you’ll earn even more — up to $75 — if you can get your referrals to start hosting.
