Microsoft to Amazon Down Leveling

I am L60 at MSFT (TC 160k). I interviewed for Amazon L5. However, they made me an L4 offer (TC 180k). Even if I move, the titles remain the same - SDE1. I am expecting an L61 promotion next September.
Should I move or stick with MSFT?

    Stick for a year or interview elsewhere. Come as sde2. Otherwise it's gonna take two yrs to get promoted and 3 yrs to reach median sde2 salary.
