Auto-Reload Your Amazon Gift Card Balance From Checking Account & Receive 2% Bonus

Reposting because this is now available to everybody and is no longer targeted.

The Offer

Direct link to offer (our affiliate link, thanks for using it if you do)

  • Receive an additional 2% in Amazon credit when you use your checking account linked with a debit card to reload your Amazon gift card balance

The Fine Print

  • In order to qualify for this limited time offer, you must: (1) be the recipient of the corresponding offer on Amazon.com; (2) be a Prime Member and (3) reload your own Amazon Balance associated with the Amazon.com account to which you are currently logged in using your bank account and providing the required checking account and linked debit card

Our Verdict

Nobody should be using this offer, you can get at least 2% cash back by using a credit card and normally 5% cash back (you can currently get 10% back if you signed up for the Blue Cash Preferred or Blue Cash Everyday offers). This is more of a PSA not to use this offer. The exception would be if you needed to meet a debit card transaction requirement for a bank account sign up bonus.

    You may want to mention Discover 5%/Discover It double that Cash Back Amazon for this calendar quarter

    From the link:

    Q: Why do I need to provide my checking account and my debit card?
    A: To fulfill your reload faster, we will sometimes route orders through your debit card instead of your bank account.

    Would love a 2% bonus on my debit card trans but don’t want them to never actually go through the debit.. probably not worth the hassle

    Does anyone know if it usually pulls from the debit account rather than what I’m assuming is an ACH pull? I could use this to meet debit card transactions for a rewards check.

    Reload on 6/20 w/2% bonus posted as: ‘AMAZON INTERNET 091000011406872’
    Previous Reloads w/Debit: ‘XX8374 CHK PURCH SIG AMAZON MKTPLACE AMZN.COM/BILL WA 00000000 064408’

    The XX8374 means the debit card was used.

    The fine print when you link states you are ok’ing ACH transfers and the FAQ states they’ll do one or the other whenever they feel like it.

    I don’t think it will count consistently enough as a debit to bother with.
