Haven’t been eligible for this since 2019 so I guess it’s a one-time only offer.

Would love to see the steps on how to only upload fake nonsense pics while doing the steps to earn the $15.
Amazon is effectively paying you $15 so they can data-mine your photo library.

It only requires 1 photo to trigger the bonus. Just take a random photo that doesn’t reveal anything.

Free $15. Plus, Amazon can churn their AI at my folder of Chihuahua/Blueberry Muffin pictures to practice their facial recognition. Hard pass on Amazon getting any real photos.

For those of you who don’t want all your photos on Amazon’s service. I created a folder and added a few photos. Did the sync option on 9/21 and received the 15 dollar credit on 9/22. I didn’t receive an email offer, I went through the link provided here. It will try to sync to your photos or videos library but you can pause it immediately so few photos transfer. I set up a separate folder with those few photos just to be safe and allowed it to sync fully.

This is just a gimmic to harvest more photos from people to train their machine learning for facial recognition and other not-so-good things. Don’t give them your data.

I’ve done one once before, but don’t recall when nor the specifics.
