Our Verdict

Pretty easy to do this deal. Hopefully promo credit will come quickly so it can be used over Prime Day, but they do allow themselves 2 days for promo credit to come. Not sure if a reload will work, buy a gift card to be safe.

We’ll add this to our main Prime Day stickied page.

It is a future credit, should see a blurb about it applying during checkout. Not going to come off the price.

Crazy deal yesterday? My order was cancelled. Did yours actually ship?

I got a Roomba and Dyson Vacuum which would MSRP for $650 + Tax at around $311 all in.

Not canceled, ordered maybe 20 minutes after DoC posted.

Yes, mine shipped today. If you check the original thread you’ll see at least one person was able to successfully pick theirs up in-store today as well.

No, sorry for the confusion. Mine was the new Prime members $10 offer for buying something before Prime Day and on Prime Day

I also got the $10 credit but it doesn’t appear when I try to checkout.
Did anyone had success?

I clicked the link to apply it automatically, but it didn’t show in the shopping cart. I tried manually entering it to be safe, figuring that if the code was redundant it would just tell me.

I got a “this code has already been redeemed” message. Not “already applied” but “already redeemed.”

Went back through the link and it assured me I was enrolled. Still nothing at checkout. Decided to be the DP I wanted to see (not like I’m losing anything) and placed the order anyway. No confirm email so far, but they do have two days.

linda. wat exactly were you expecting? did you read the post? a promotional credit of $5 will be automatically applied to the Prime account used to purchase the GC within 2 days after purchase.

the only thing u were supposed to see is the qualification language on the checkout page:

Qualifying offers
Congratulations on your Prime Day gift card purchase. Your purchase qualifies you for an Amazon.com credit. A $5 promotional credit will be automatically applied to your account and emailed to you within two (2) days after shipping.

Linda

I knew the amount wasn’t coming off this purchase. I was expecting to see the qualification language at checkout, as others did, and there was no such language at any point during the checkout process.

Did you use mobile or desktop? I had the same experience as you on mobile, will chat if I don’t get credit in couple of days.

Nick

I also noticed this in mobile Firefox and Chrome. So I ticked the option to “request desktop site”. Then the message appeared. I think you’re fine. Someone likely left off an element in the mobile site.

I see, thanks.

Interestingly, my SO, who did it on mobile, now got a confirmation email:

“Thank you for purchasing from Amazon.com. Order *** has earned you a promotional reward which we have added to your account. This reward can be applied to your next eligible order.”

I have not yet gotten it, though.

We have a linked prime account (I am primary) and I did offer first, in case it matters.

EDIT: Nevermind, just got my confirmation credit also.

Linda

I just got my email too. I did buy it on the mobile site. Glad it worked for us all!

I purchased $25 GC and cart was showing correct message (Qualifying offers ….) . The message is still showing up for further amazon GC purchase .Not sure if this deal can be repeated .

“Limit one promotional credit per Amazon.com Prime account as designated by the primary email address.”

What does the above mean? Is it excluding the offer from the non-primary adult account in the same Prime family (non-grandfathered, with only two adult accounts allowed)?

Steve

I would like to know also.

Jace

Can’t tell if this works if you just do a $25 self reload…it should right? Just did a $25 reload but I haven’t gotten confirmation yet.

Caroline

Can confirm. Got my reward for a $25 self-reload.
