Amazon is running a promotion for Prime members where they’ll give you a free $10 gift card for purchasing $35 worth of household goods. The deal is advertised as a back-to-school promotion, but it’s available to all Prime members, not just students, and includes common everyday items that most people use. To get your free gift card simply visit this page, add the $10 gift card at the top to your cart, and then add at least $35 worth of other items on the page to your cart. When you checkout, you’ll see a $10 “Back 2 School Promo” credit automatically applied to your order.
Amazon is currently offering a $3 eBook credit that can be used on select romance titles for subscribing to their free Kindle romance email newsletter. Just subscribe to the free newsletter here and then claim your $3 credit here. There are a little over 2,500 romance eBooks that the credit can be used on.
Amazon is offering Prime members a free $5 promo credit for buying a $25 Amazon gift card. To cash in on this deal, just click this link here and then click the button on the page that says “Click to qualify.” The page will display “Coupon Clipped” and you can now use one of the three purchasing option on the page to buy a gift card. The three options are eGift Card, Print-at-Home Gift Card, and Physical Gift Card. It doesn’t matter which you pick. During checkout, you’ll see a message that says “Your first $25 Amazon.com gift card purchase today qualifies you for an Amazon.com credit” to let you know that you’ll received the extra $5 promo credit. The promo credit will be applied to your account in a couple days. If you’d like, you can apply the gift card you just purchased directly to your own account, and you’ll still receive the promo credit.
I expect everyone who is already a Prime member has at least once streamed some Prime Video content, so this deal is really for those of you who aren’t Prime members yet. If you’ve never streamed prime content, like those of you who sign up for Prime right now, you’ll receive a $10 Amazon credit applied to your next Amazon purchase just for watching your first Prime Video content. Since Prime Day is just around the corner, it’s a pretty good time to sign up for Prime anyway, so the $10 credit is a nice extra bonus. After streaming your first Prime content, you’ll receive the credit in 3-4 days, which will be automatically applied to your next purchase. The credit must be used by the end of Prime Day on July 11. It does apply to purchases on Prime Day, so if you sign up for Prime today and then stream Prime Video on your Fire TV, you’ll be ready to take advantage of the deals on Prime Day with your $10 credit. If you want, you can cancel your Prime membership before the 30 day free trial ends and get the $10 credit at no cost.
Those of you who are Prime members are probably familiar with Amazon’s No-Rush shipping incentives. They offer you a perk for selecting a slower shipping options instead of the free 2-day shipping that comes with being a Prime member. Those perks are most commonly $1 in digital content credit or $5 in Amazon Pantry credit. A new No-Rush incentive of $3 general Amazon credit has started being offered for select shipments. This is a significantly better incentive, so be on the lookout when making orders. Remember, Amazon now has a dedicated page for your No-Rush Shipping Credit to keep track of those incentives.
The Amazon Dash Wand is a small handheld device that lets you add items to your Amazon shopping list by scanning bar codes or dictating the item. The new version was released late last year and was mostly the same as the Dash Wand it replaced, but a little sleeker. Now Amazon has made the device a whole lot more useful by adding full Alexa capabilities. Just like with an Echo Dot, you can now speak to Alexa and hear responses directly through the Dash Wand.
The Dash Wand is only $20, making it the least expensive Alexa device Amazon sells, but it gets better because Amazon is essentially giving them away. If you’re a Prime member and order the Dash Wand for $20, you’ll automatically receive a $20 credit added to your Amazon account as soon as you register the device. See the promotion details here.
Amazon Reload is a new program launching today for Prime members that will earn you a 2% bonus for reloading your Amazon Gift Card Balance using a bank account, instead of a credit card. Essentially, if you use your bank account to pay for purchases, instead of a credit card, Amazon doesn’t have to pay credit card transaction fees, so they’re passing some of those savings onto you. Once you setup your bank account information, you’ll instantly get 2% added to your gift card balance when you reload gift card funds. Those funds and the 2% bonus will be available to use on Amazon within a few minutes. This cannot be combined with the 5% rewards that Prime members get with the Amazon Visa or the Amazon Store Card, which is obviously a better deal, but for those who don’t want to open or use those cards, this is a nice alternative to save a little more money.
Amazon is running a new promotion where select customers will receive a free $5 promo code via email when they order a $25 Amazon gift card using Alexa. To qualify for the offer, you must have received an email regarding the promotion. Check your inbox for an email with the subject line “Special Offer: Get a $5 promo code when you use Alexa to voice order a $25 gift card.” If you received such an email, then you just need to order a $25 Amazon gift card using any Alexa device by saying “Alexa, order a $25 gift card.” The gift card order must be placed by April 16 to qualify for the free $5 promo code, which will be emailed to you once the gift card ships. The $5 promo code must be used by June 7. If you did not receive an email about this offer, you will not receive the free $5 promo code.
If you didn’t get the email, scroll through this page while logged into Amazon and see if there is a banner about this promo on the page. If there is a banner, then you qualify for the offer.
If you don’t want to use a credit card, debit card, or purchase gift cards, Amazon Cash is a new alternative way to pay for purchases on Amazon. The way it works is you take a unique barcode linked to your account to a participating physical store. The cashier scans the barcode and you pay them any amount in cash between $15 and $500. That money then becomes available on your Amazon account as credit. Participating stores include CVS Pharmacy, Speedway, Kum & Go, D&W Fresh Market, Sheetz, Family Fare Supermarkets, and VG’s Grocery, with more retailers to be added soon. You can either print your unique barcode, or bring it up on a mobile device at the store.
To promote the new service, Amazon is offering a free $10 credit if you add $50 of Amazon Cash to your account. Just add $50 by May 31 and the free $10 credit will automatically be added to your account. The free $10 credit can only be used on digital goods like apps, e-books, digital movies, TV shows, music, and games. You’ll have until June 30 to spend the $10 credit before it expires.
Amazon just added the ability to place Prime Now orders using Alexa. To promote the feature, they’ll send you a $5 promo code, to use on a future Amazon order, just for trying it out. Place any Prime Now order using Alexa before April 30 and you’ll be emailed a $5 promo code in about seven days. This a new different promotion from the one from last week that gave you $5 for reordering something with Alexa, which, by the way, has been extended until March 24.
