Do you know that you can use your Discover it® Cash Back card’s Cashback Bonus® to shop at Amazon.com? You can also shop at Amazon.com with your Discover Miles if you have the Discover it® Miles card.  Both cards can link your Amazon.com and Discover accounts and pay for your purchases automatically at a 1:1 ratio. It’s one of the great ways a credit card with rewards can bring more value to your shopping.

First, you will need to link your Discover credit card to your Amazon.com account. Go to the Amazon “Cashback Bonus from Discover” page and click “Link your rewards account now.”


You will see the Amazon Sign In page. Enter your Amazon.com account information.

sign into amazon.com


After you’ve signed in, you’ll be taken to the Enroll a New Card page.


Click the “Enroll a new rewards account” button and fill out your Discover card information.


Your Discover credit card is now linked to your Amazon.com account and you’ll be able to use your rewards to pay at checkout.

Making a purchase at Amazon.com with the Cashback Bonus of your Discover it® card is very easy. After you sign into your Amazon.com account, hover over “Account and Lists,” then go to “Shop with Points.”

From there, find the “Shop with Points” link.

The next page will open all your accounts enrolled with Amazon.com.

From now on, Amazon.com will always apply your available Discover it® Cashback Bonus to pay for all or part of your order until you cancel it as the default payment method.

The Discover it® Miles card works in a similar fashion.

Happy shopping!
