With the announcement that LBB and Amazon are ending cooperation with the Amazon credit card, the question arises as to what about the Amazon points that have been collected so far. Unfortunately, you only have until 30.9.2023/XNUMX/XNUMX to use these points, otherwise they will expire.
Chapter in this post:
How many Amazon points do I have?
As a diligent user of the Amazon credit card, my first question was how many points I currently have in my account. Unfortunately, this was not displayed in my Amazon dashboard, but luckily I found a way to display the current score:
- Access Amazon customer account (via this link)
- then click on the “My Payments” section
- there under “credit and debit cards” you will find the “Amazon.de Visa”
- directly below is the current score in green letters
In the meantime, not only the number of Amazon points is displayed there, but also the amount in euros.
Convert Amazon points to euros
If you don’t get along with the Amazon points, you can find the simple conversion for the “virtual Amazon currency” into euros here:
- For every 2 euros you spend on Amazon you get 1 Amazon point
- 100 points are 1 euro credit
- 1.000 points are 10 euro credit
- 10.000 points are 100 euro credit
For example, I have 40.397 Amazon points and thus a credit of 403,97 euros on the points account. We'd rather not count back how much money I left with Amazon to come up with this sum. 😂
Use Amazon points in good time
Amazon has already informed that the points will soon expire as they have ended their cooperation with the LBB Bank. It's not clear to me why the points should also be gone, but unfortunately that's how it is.
Now you can “rebook” the points via a detour as a permanent Amazon credit. The way to do this works like this:
- at Amazon on the product page "Top up Amazon credit" go
- then enter the amount of credit in Miscellaneous that you have as a points credit in euros
- now click on “Pay Now”.
- then click further until you get to the payment method
- Unfold “Would you like to use reward points” here
- the corresponding value should already be filled in
- Click Place Order and Pay
With this you have converted the Amazon points into real Amazon credit in your customer account, which does not expire and can still be used in years to come.
Here are some questions that are frequently asked about this topic.
What is an Amazon point worth?
An Amazon point is worth exactly one cent. 100 Amazon points correspond to one euro.
How much are 500 Amazon points?
If you have collected 500 Amazon points, you have a credit of 5 euros at your disposal.
What do my Amazon points expire?
LBB and Amazon will end their cooperation on September 30.09.2023th, XNUMX. At this time, the Amazon points will also expire. So you should definitely convert the points into Amazon credit beforehand. How to do this is explained in the article.
