The Offer

Direct Link to offer (affiliate link)

  • Amazon will offer a special deal on Amazon gift cards. Deal will go live at midnight PT tonight.

The Fine Print

  • Limit 1 per customer
  • While supplies last

Our Verdict

Last year the deal was to get a $5 Amazon credit with a $25 Amazon gift card purchase. It’ll likely be the same or something similar this year; we’ll find out in a few hours when it goes live.

Big thanks to those who use our links during Prime Day.

Not sure $5 will be worth staying up until 2:00 am (CST) 🙂

Buy next time kroger has 4x points, with a high CB card, and you got a better deal without staying up.

Need to have a kroger to do that. Chuck is right though, I’m sure it’s all day. I still have over $500 in AGC anyway from the Lowes/Amex 10% deal.

I have several hundred dollars Amazon Gift Card balance.
Can I use my Amazon Gift Card balance to purchase the $25 Amazon GC to qualify the offer?

And how to use the $5 Amazon Credit?
Can I use it to buy gift cards , coins, staples, …?

Thank you very much!

Matt

No you can’t use balance. And you can use the $5 credit for anything sold through Amazon I believe

Peter

No on the first, yes on the second. But you’ll have to wait until 3edt to see what the deal is

will egc work?

I’ve added an egift card to my cart and added the promo code, but when plugging the code in at checkout it reads “This gift card has already been applied to your account balance”. Anyone know what the problem is?

I had the same problem

San

Zack if you clipped the promotional offer then you don’t need to apply the code again.

Still doesn’t come off during checkout. Is it only a physical GC and not eGC?

Steve

It worked on eGC for me. It doesn’t give you a discount on this purchase, but the checkout page showed a message saying that I qualify for the promotional credit (which will be sent to me in a couple days).

Can anyone with a non-prime account confirm whether this worked for them?

Prime only

credit says 2 business days to apply but typically I’ve gotten them right away. still waiting!

Same here. Waiting as well.

You won’t get it until two days. Amazon’s point of the promo code is to use after Prime Day.

Tommy

They’ve had this offer for multiple years now and it has always come the day following Prime day for me.

make sure you buy the giftcard and not reload.

Also make sure you buy from desktop not on mobile. I purchased in app (IOS) and didn’t get the $5 promo confirmation. A couple other people (at Dan’s Deals) had the same problem, so heads up.

Thanks, it didn’t post from in app purchase for me either (Android)
I got the ” “This gift card has already been applied to your account balance”.

I cancelled app order Got the same red letter account balance message. But on the Desktop I got another message below stating that it would be e-mailed ($5 credit within 2 days) .

Wait, how do you know that? (that it won’t work on gc balance re-load?)

Steve

The terms of the offer say that it’s only valid for gift cards, which based on another part of the terms seems to be treated differently than gift card balance reloads. But I didn’t try a reload. But it’s not a big deal, since you can email a gift card to yourself and then reload your balance with it.

Terms and conditions state:

“In order to qualify for the promotional credit, you must: (1) be an Amazon.com Prime member.”

just received my $5 credit

It appears this offer can be done more than once, similar to the text messaging offer from a few months ago and last year. I have already done this, received, and used my $5 credit. I am still seeing the promo on the site and in my app. When i follow the instructions, and checkout, it confirms that i qualify for the offer so i did it again.

I might do it a few more times….

In the past (the text messaging one) most of them posted automatically. I had one instance where it did not, and i brought it to the chat supports attention and they manually credited me the $5 (even after having done the offer several times).

I recommend taking a screenshot showing the order info and the message at the bottom that confirms you qualify for the promo, for good measure my screenshot included the current time and date though that’s probably not necessary since that is in the order info itself.

Good extra 20% off (plus $1 digital credit for no-rush shipping), worst case, in the rare situation where it doesn’t credit automatically, and amazon upholds the 1 limit per account and won’t manually credit it, you get stuck with some amazon gift cards…in my experience not a big deal…

DId the same and purchased a second and third time on my acc, but didn’t receive any credit.
