More offers from American Express
Go this offer on - my Amex Platinum , and on my family member - Amex Cobalt.

Only the first 5,000 cards to be successfully registered are eligible for the offer. When you click on the applicable link, you will be redirected to the merchant website.
The registered Card account must be in good standing. Only the Basic American Express Card referenced in this communication is eligible for registration in this offer. Must first register your eligible Card for the offer and use the registered Card to purchase an annual Amazon Prime membership in Canada by 31/10/2020. Date format is DD/MM/YYYY. If you are eligible, and you receive a free 30-day Amazon Prime membership trial period or reside in Quebec and are signing up for an annual Amazon Prime membership with the first 30 days included at no charge, your Card will be charged at the end of that 30-day period. You must ensure you sign up for an annual Amazon Prime membership by 31/10/2020 and your registered Card is charged by 04/12/2020 in order to be eligible. A purchase made during the offer period prior to registration of your eligible Card in this program is not a qualifying purchase. Your registration of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to qualifying purchases on that Card.
To be eligible for a $20 (CAD) statement credit, one single qualifying purchase or cumulative qualifying purchase(s) of an annual Amazon Prime Membership in Canada that total at least $79 (CAD) after taxes, must be charged to your registered Card using the Amazon mobile application or online at www.amazon.ca/amazonprime by 04/12/2020 and subsequently posted to your account. The purchase will not qualify if the registered Card is charged after 04/12/2020.
Offer only available on purchases of annual Amazon Prime memberships in Canada on the Amazon mobile application or online at www.amazon.ca/amazonprime. Amazon Prime Terms apply, click here to view Amazon Prime terms and conditions. All purchases other than Amazon Prime membership are excluded. Purchases of Amazon Prime memberships through the use of Membership Rewards points are also excluded. Offer is non-transferable. You can earn a maximum of $20 (CAD) in statement credit/s per registered Card during the offer period.
Statement credit will be applied to your registered Card account within 90 days after 04/12/2020, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase(s). Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase(s) is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. Unless expressly stated otherwise in the offer, the following transactions are not qualifying purchases for this offer: purchasing a merchant’s goods through a third party, such as through concession stores in department stores, payment account or service of a third party, a card reader attached to a mobile phone, online aggregators that sell goods of other merchants or if the merchant category is otherwise not identified. A statement credit does not constitute a payment and does not satisfy the requirement to pay the minimum due on a credit card. The Basic/Primary Cardmember must continue to make separate payments of at least the minimum due in accordance with the Cardmember agreement and account statement applicable to their registered Card.
In the event that you replace your registered Card through Amex Bank of Canada or other participating American Express card issuer (as applicable) during the offer period, your participation in this offer will end and you will need to re-register for this offer.
For full terms that apply to registering your Card in the program, see Program Terms.

Shame that it's not available for Soctiabank AMEX...

So how are they telling the difference between a Amazon Prime membership and a $79 Amazon GC? :)

It's quite a complex set of instructions to get $20. When I had Prime a few years ago, I had a lot of impulse buys.
signature closed for renovation

Thanks OP! It seems I got a bit lucky, my membership renews Oct. 4th. I've registered my AMEX Essential for the offer and updated it as my preferred card for renewal. Unfortunately my AMEX Bonvoy did not get the offer. I didn't see any exclusions for a renewal. I wonder if I should cancel & resubscribe?

So, think we could cancel our current Prime membership, and then Purchase again under this program? You would get a pro-rated credit anyway right?
