How to Get Amazon Gift Cards With Points

Certain American Express credit cards offer a Membership Rewards program that lets the credit card holder earn points for each dollar he charges. The rewards points can be redeemed on Amazon.com after the credit card is linked to an Amazon account. Use rewards points to pay for all or part of an Amazon order and use the American Express card to pay for any remaining balance.
