[YMMV] Reload Your Amazon Giftcard Balance With $100 & Receive $10 Bonus – First Time Users & Prime Only

I’m reposting this because you don’t actually need to load $100. You can just load a smaller amount (I did $11) and it triggers it as well. Hat tip to Thunder3000. Reloads of as little as $1 are also working.

The Offer

Direct link to offer (note this is our referral link to Amazon, we appreciate you using it if possible)

  • Reload your Amazon gift card balance with $100 or more and receive a bonus credit of $10. Normally the bonus you receive is only $5



The Fine Print

  • Limited time offer.
  • The offer only applies to the first reload of your own Gift Card Balance.
  • For qualifying purchases, a $10 Gift Card reward will be automatically applied to the account used to reload within 24-48 hours after the reload order has been placed.
  • The Gift Card reloaded to your account and the $10 reward can both be checked on the Gift Card Balance page.
  • Offer is limited to one $10 Gift Card reward per customer and account.
  • This offer may not be combined with other offers.
  • The offer is good while supplies last.
  • The maximum benefit you may receive from this offer is $10.
  • The offer and the reward are non-transferable and may not be resold.
  • If you violate any of these terms and conditions, the offer will be invalid.
  • The offer is void where prohibited.
  • Amazon reserves the right to modify or cancel the offer at any time.
  • The amount you reload to your Gift Card Balance is not transferable, refundable or redeemable for cash, except as required by law.
  • When you reload your balance, you are purchasing an Gift Card in the amount you selected that will be automatically added to your Gift Card Balance. Your Gift Card Balance does not expire and is subject to Gift Card Terms and Conditions.
  • The amount you reload to your Gift Card Balance and the additional $10 Gift Card Balance you receive for the qualifying reload cannot be used to buy Gift Cards

Our Verdict

Normally the reload bonus is only $5, it was previously increased to $10 in the lead up to prime day and it looks like it has been increased again. Unfortunately you can only get this bonus if you haven’t done it before. As always make sure you stack as many Amazon deals as possible to save up to 25%.

Is this an ongoing thing?

I reloaded my balance with 500 last month. Didn’t get any freaking bonus.

Raloading a gift card is different than reloading your balance?

You don’t have to be a Prime member, actually. I did this yesterday and got the $10 bonus, no prime.

What is the link to the promotion that you used?

It was the link from Will’s post ‘Amazon Prime Day Announced For July 11th & Full List Of Lead Up Deals.’ Same link as this one.

My message from Amazon said this was for Prime members, only. YMMV.

Another DP confirming you don’t need Prime. $10 bonus posted within 10 minutes.

Thanks Doc. Took less than 5 minutes and got this confirmation e-mail.

Christmas is coming, so I am sure I can chip that down.

Looks like this deal had expired and it’s back to the $5 bonus, at least that’s what I’m seeing.

The offer I’m seeing says it’s exclusively for Prime accounts. I tried on 2 of my non-Prime accounts and it didn’t appear, then got it to appear on one of my Prime accounts.

By the way, I just did it now for the first time, and tried with only $1.00.. extra $10 posted almost immediately. So new DP: reload works with as little as $1

Curious, did it tell you you were going to get the $10 bonus because when I manually enter $10 t’s telling me I’ll just get 50 cents.

Nevermind! Didn’t read the fine print quite carefully enough and put through a $1.99 order and already got the bonus!

Nope, I just got it. On a whim, I also went for the “reload $100, get $5” promo on a non-prime account and it worked as well 🙂 🙂

I got one last year, can i get it again this year?

I reloaded and the bonus applied instantly (ok, within 2 minutes).

Amazon offered to combine the offer with an additional 2% cash back if I used a debit card with a linked checking account to reload.
I used a cc though.

Sorry, you are not eligible for this promotion 🙁

Same. Boo.

Can confirm… loaded $10.00 got $10.00 almost instantly. thanks for letting us know doc!

another DP: loaded $1 and got $10 instant reload credit

same here. $1 reload near-instant $10 credit

Message showed eligible, but if it does eventually work for me, it wasn’t instant or within 10 minutes. Oh, well.


Reloaded with $2 about 15minutes ago and no instant $10 giftcard so far 🙁

Tried with $1 and nothing yet. Any idea if it has to be the primary prime account?

Same boat here.
