Get Amazon Instant Video Credit for 88% OFF?

Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 6.44.49 PM

Amazon is currently giving $1 Instant Video Credit if you opt for their slower No-Rush shipping option when purchasing items eligible for Prime shipping. As far as I can tell, all Prime eligible items qualify for this promotion, even items that cost less than $1. This means, you can get $1 video credit for spending less than $1. The cheapest Prime eligible item I could find is this $0.12 compression sleeve. Sure enough, when you add it to your cart, the $1 video credit option appears. Since there doesn’t seem to be a limit to how many $1 credits you can earn, you can technically purchase this $0.12 item numerous times and essentially buy Amazon Instant Video credit for 88% off. Here are the 10 cheapest Prime eligible items I could find, ranging from $0.12 to $0.21.

    How do you view your credit balance?

    @Rick: Click on a movie or TV show that’s under Instant Video. Then click on the “redeem a giftcard or promotion” link. It’s so absurdly hidden.

    problem is your credit card/bank account might get flagged for fraud for doing this

    I did 25 orders of the 12 cent items this morning!!

    How long does it take for the credits to show up? I’m not seeing it on my account yet:(

    The item now comes in a 10-pack for $3.66, FYI.

    I’ll not try and see all of them- but the second item shows this error message:

    We’re sorry!
    An error occurred when we tried to process your request. Rest assured, we’re working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
    If you were trying to make a purchase, please check Your Account to confirm that the order was placed. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Looks like some of the the items caught their attention.

    it’s better to get a gift card that you’d actually use (subway, starbucks, petco etc) and get this credit, that was there’s no money spent.
