Our Verdict

Prime reading is free to use and was launched in 2016. If the offer doesn’t show on the linked page, try clicking the ‘Prime’ link in the top menu navigation and see if that shows it as a pop up. Usually these sorts of deals are highly YMMV so you probably won’t be eligible unfortunately. Easy $5 if you are though. For a full list of ways to save on Amazon click here.

Nothing here, it just says thanks for being one of their best customers and that they appreciate me. If they really did, show the love!


I got a Prime Video offer of $5 and not prime reading when I went to the page.


my wife was targeted for this offer but she is not getting the $5 credit. anyone have any suggestions on books that will trigger the credit?


The first page. Read for free. Included with your prime membership.


Works for me. Thanks Doc

The link takes me to prime video. Does that mean I’m not eligible?
