Amazon is offering $8.62 off any purchase of $50 or more — Today Only

Amazon is celebrating their #1 corporation ranking by giving all customers $8.62 off a $50 purchase. Simply add $50 or more worth of items that are sold and shipped by Amazon to your cart and enter promo code BIGTHANKS to receive the discount. If you don’t have anything you need to buy, I suggest picking up a $50 gift card to somewhere you frequently shop, like one of the following:

Starbucks, Subway, IHOP, Kmart, Staples, Sears, Gap, Buffalo Wild Wings, Wholefoods, Nordstrom, Old Navy, JCPenney, American Eagle, Sephora, Hollister, Finish Line, Banana Republic, Burger King, The Children’s Place, The Cheesecake Factory, Panera Bread, Express, P.F. Changs

    The promo won’t work for an Amazon gift card.

  2. Ken says:

    Sweat! Free money. Thanks. Picked up a Starbucks card since I’ll eventually spend $50 there anyway.

    Also, this offer ONLY applies to products that are SOLD and SHIPPED by Amazon both, not just items shipped by Amazon as the post indicates.

    I tried to use the discount code with a $100 plus item that was sold by a 3rd party seller but was going to be fulfilled by Amazon as an Amazon Prime purchase. And the Amazon system wouldn’t accept the use of the discount code for that kind of purchase.

    And when I checked the actual T&Cs for the deal, I found the following language:

    “Terms & Conditions:

    Today only, get $8.62 off your purchase of $50 or more when you apply promo code BIGTHANKS at checkout. (Actually, we’ll round up from 8.627, so your discount will be $8.63.)

    Offer expires at 11:59 p.m. (PT) 2/22/2017.
    Offer only applies to products sold by Amazon.com.
    Offer does not apply to digital content, video games, or Amazon Gift Cards.
    Offer does not apply to orders placed through Alexa, Prime Now, Amazon Restaurants, or any mobile application other than the Amazon Shopping App.
    Offer limited to one per customer and account.”

    Thanks. One time use only, just in case anyone wasn’t sure. ;)

    That list of places “shopped frequently” looks more like my boycott list of anti-american establishments.

    And /SPENDING/ $50 to fool yourself into thinking you /SAVED/ $8 doesnt seem like an intelligent money plan imo.

    Sorry to rain on anyones parade

    • Tim Hunter says:

      Sure, spending $50 to save $8 is silly if you weren’t planning on spending $50, but if you were about to order $50 worth of stuff and this helped you save $8… that’s pretty good.

    • Adam says:

      Hmm, lets see. I eat at Subway 2-3 times a week, which means its guaranteed I will spend $50 in a month or so.

      I was just able to buy $50 worth of gift cards using this promotion which brought it down to $41.37. Then since I used my Amazon credit which gives me back 5%, I regain another $2.06.

      Which means that with 30 seconds labor, I get $50 for $39.31.

      Or put another way, my investment of $39.31 yielded a guaranteed return of 22%.

      My parade seems quite sunny, thank you. Sorry if this rains on yours.

      • Adam says:

        Oh, and btw, that’s tax free income, and I’m given to understand that people that figures out how to not pay taxes on income are “geniuses”.

        • Not Bill says:

          I hope that people that have intelligent money plans and lists of anti-American companies to boycott have the intellectual integrity not to take part in this “fool”ish promotion.

          Hate to have such people admit that they’re not as clever as they think they are.

          I imagine that if they do, they won’t be posting about it with the same self righteous vigor that they displayed in their earlier disdain of people taking advantage of this offer.

      • Adam says:

        And just like that, bill is gone.

        What that says about his philosophies or judgement I’ll leave to the reader.

    Trying to build an order, but it would appear a ton of items are not BOTH SOLD and SHIPPED by Amazon. ugh

    Works on Netflix gift cards as well

  8. KeyboardShorts says:

    I bought that keyboard that is always on sale, but never available at sale price.

  9. TechyChris says:

    I could not get the code to work for me but to Amazon’s credit I emailed them and a rep immediately applied it to my order. (appropriate since the credit is for a customer service award)
    The rep told me they were having “a lot” of technical difficulties concerning the code and apologized immensely!
