Not working for me at all. I was targeted, activated, added items sold by Amazon, applied any amount of points. No discount.
No matter how many $100 Staples GCs I put in the cart, it takes off $30. So I got one with a 30% discount. IDK why this is what it did, but I'll happily take it.
"On the final checkout page click on “Apply rewards points” and enter $0.01 to use 1 point to save 1 cent"
Don't change it on the payment page!!

That's what I did. Nothing.

No. Looks like this might be the reason, though I was targeted and having prime doesn't appear anywhere as a condition.

Lets see if that's right.
Start at your cart.
Is it something sold by Amazon?
Start to check out:
ship to: whereever
payment method: click the cc with the points you're using.
   lower down click 'pay with points' - let them add all the points they want. DON'T adjust amount.
  click 'use this payment method'

Discount should appear in order summary.
final check:  change the amount of points to .01   Discount stays.

Yes, I did all that. I'm not new to Amazon promotions. The issue seems to be not having a prime account.

Just maxed out $100 on the 20% offer(screenshot above), and repeated it, and this is my cart. $30 off for 1 point used.

Did anyone successfully use the promotion without a prime account?

Yes, as I said above, albeit with an odd 30% discount.

I'm getting $30 off any order over $100 now that my 20% is gone.

That’s the 30 off 60. I had to take care of that promo first in order for the 20% promo to apply.

I just used the 20% off promo, and haven't added any others since. Not sure where it came from.

Really weird that they would say that it has been activated - on a non Prime acct - when it needs Prime to work.
