There are so many incredible deals available right now on Amazon. As a matter of fact, Amazon kicked off a huge sale packed with “epic deals” on everything you can think of. But are any of those sales as good as an Amazon Gift Card promotion though? We’re not so sure.
Looking for some highlights? First and foremost, Amazon’s #1 best-selling COVID-19 home test kits are in stock and on sale with a surprise discount. More tests are also in stock, and you can see them all in our earlier COVID-19 rapid test coverage. Apple’s brand new AirPods Pro with MagSafe are down to just $174.98 and AirPods 3 are on sale for only $149.98. Those prices are lower than what we saw on Black Friday last year!
Of note, other AirPods models are also discounted right now, which is great. Amazon’s #1 best-selling Beckham Hotel Collection bed pillows with 117,000 5-star reviews are on sale for $15 each. Additionally, there are shockingly deep discounts on dozens of Amazon devices like Fire TV Sticks and Kindle eBook readers.
But there are also some Amazon gift card promotions that anyone and everyone needs to take advantage of right away. Well, anyone and everyone who is eligible, that is.
You’ll find two different Amazon gift card promotions available right now at Amazon. Then, there are also several other promotions that you need to know about. Altogether, there’s $40 in free money on the table right now. Plus, you’ll find even more savings for certain Amazon shoppers who qualify for additional promos.
Make sure you read all the way to the end because there are so many deals you need to see.
As we mentioned above, there are so many epic deals available right now at Amazon. You can actually see all the best ones right here on Amazon’s epic deals page. But you can spend hours digging through those pages without coming across a bargain this good. After all, what’s better than free money?!
Here’s how it works. All you need to do is head over to the Amazon Gift Card page and choose an amount of $50 or more. Now, here’s the important trick. If you want to get a gift card for someone as a present, feel free. But you can also just enter your own email address as the eGift card recipient. That way, you’re not spending any money at all! Instead, you’re simply loading $50 onto your own Amazon account.
This is the important bit. When you go to pay for your order, enter the coupon code USGIFTCARD21 at checkout. When you do, you’ll see a confirmation that the promotion worked. Then, you’ll have an extra $10 Amazon credit added to your account within two days.
Amazon’s terms and conditions page for this promotion is right here. But we’ll save you the suspense and highlight the biggest caveat with this promo.
In order to be eligible for this Amazon gift card promotion, it needs to be your first time buying one on Amazon’s website. If you’ve purchased an Amazon gift card in a grocery store or some other physical retailer, you’re fine. But if you’ve ordered a gift card or eGift card from Amazon’s site, you’re not eligible for this promo.
If you’re not eligible for the promotion above, don’t worry. There’s actually another great Amazon promotion running right now that you might be able to take advantage of.
Have you ever heard of Amazon Reload? If you answered “no,” that’s actually a good thing. It means you’re almost certainly eligible for an awesome Amazon gift card promotion that gets you a $10 credit for free!
First-time reloaders can use Amazon Reload to add $100 or more to their account. When they do, they’ll get an extra $10 Amazon credit for free.
Figuring out whether or not you’re eligible for this great offer couldn’t be easier. Just visit Amazon’s terms and conditions page for the Reload promo.
If you see a message that says “Sorry, you are not eligible for this promotion,” you’re out of luck. That means you’ve used Amazon Reload at some point in the past. But if you see Amazon’s terms and conditions instead, you’re good to go.
Get paid $5 to stream a movie
Was that last heading a typo? Can you really get paid $5 just for streaming a movie? Believe it or not, yes, you really can.
Amazon is offering a special limited-time promotion to Prime subscribers. If you’re an “eligible customer” (again, there’s no clarification as far as what that means), Amazon will give you a $5 credit for streaming something using Prime Video. All you have to do is visit the promo page, click the banner at the top, and stream a video. It’s that simple.
Terms and conditions are located at the bottom of the page, but this one is a no-brainer. Just go stream a movie or an episode of your favorite show, and you’ll get paid $5!
Chase credit card users save up to $15
In addition to all the awesome Amazon Gift Card promotions we covered above, there’s also a special deal for certain Chase credit card users. Unfortunately, this promo isn’t available to everyone.
As you can see above, Amazon is offering an awesome deal that gets you 50% off an order. This benefit is good for up to $15 off.
All you need to do is visit Amazon’s Chase promo page. If you see the screen above with details about the promotion, you’re in! If you just see a blank page, you’re sadly not eligible for this great promo.
Brand new Amazon offer for certain shoppers
In addition to the fantastic Amazon gift card promotions above, there’s another new Amazon offer you need to check out.
This one is different from the rest because it involves one of Amazon’s partners, American Express. With the deal, you’ll get $10 off your purchase on Amazon when you switch your default payment method to an eligible Amex card.
There are a bunch of terms and conditions for this promotion. Only certain American Express cards are eligible, and there are other restrictions too. Read about all the details on Amazon’s terms and conditions page, where you’ll also find out whether or not you’re eligible.
It couldn’t be easier. Just click this link and look under the main banner in the middle of the page. If there’s a note that says “sorry, you were not eligible for this promotion,” you sadly can’t get in on the action. If you see promo details instead, prepare to save $10!
Gift card deals for everyone
Now that we’ve covered the special Amazon Gift Card promotions that get you free money, there are a few other gift card deals we want to show you.
Only certain people are eligible for the offers that add free Amazon credit to your account. Meanwhile, there’s a hidden page that lists special gift card deals available to everyone!
Right now, there are several great gift card deals available on Amazon for a limited time. Definitely check out Amazon’s gift cards page for more. Be aware that the gift card deals along the top of the page often disappear. Every time they do, however, they come back a few days later. So if you check that page and you don’t see any deals there, check back again a day or two later and you should be pleasantly surprised.
Also of note, you should keep one thing in mind. Gift cards obviously make great gifts, but you can also send these digital gift cards to your own email address and get the bonus credits for free!
Buy a $50 Amazon eGift Card, get a $5 credit
Next, we have a great Amazon gift card promotion that actually already ended. We’re still going to tell you about it though, and we’ll explain why.
This one was simple: just buy an Amazon eGift Card of $50 or more and use the promo code THANKYOUGC21 at checkout. When you did, you got a $5 Amazon credit!
Like the other Amazon gift card promotions mentioned above, this one had eligibility requirements that were quite unclear. Your best bet was to visit the Amazon terms and conditions page to check. If you saw the dreaded “Thank you for your interest in Amazon Gift Cards. Unfortunately, you are not eligible for this offer.” message, you were out of luck. If you saw terms and conditions, you’re in!
Here’s the important stuff from the promo page:
Terms & Conditions In order to qualify for the promotional credit, you must: (1) be the recipient of the corresponding offer (either via email or on Amazon.com); (2) purchase at least $50 in Amazon eGift Cards (“GCs”) in a single order at Amazon.com between October 15, 2021, and December 10, 2021, 11:59 PM (PT); and (3) enter the promotional code “THANKYOUGC21” in the “Gift Cards & Promotional Codes” box when you check out, or click the button to add the coupon to your account.
As noted above, this deal unfortunately ended on December 10. We’re still going to keep this information here, however, because sometimes Amazon decides to launch similar promotions soon after deals like this end. If that does end up happening, it’ll be on the same page as this deal that’s now expired.
Get a $10 credit when you buy a $100 Apple Gift Card
UPDATE: This deal is now sold out, but we’re leaving all the info in this post. Why? Because last time it sold out, it came back a few days later and stuck around for more than a month. In other words, definitely give it a shot and see if it’s working again.
Do you have an Apple fan in your life? Do you love Apple products yourself? In either case, there’s a limited-time Amazon Christmas gift card offer that you need to take advantage of.
Just spend $100 or more on an Apple Gift Card and use the coupon code APPLEDIGITAL at checkout. When you do, you’ll get a $10 Amazon credit!
There’s also a simple trick you can use if you’re planning to buy some Apple gadgets yourself. If you send an Apple Gift Card to your own email address, you’ll end up getting $10 for free! You’re going to spend that money on Apple products anyway, right? With that in mind, you might as well get an extra $10 from Amazon.
Here’s the confirmation you’ll see when you enter the promo code at checkout:
You can find all the terms and conditions for this deal right here on Amazon. Just scroll down to the section labeled “special offers and product promotions”.
Also, keep in mind that deals like these tend to sell out fast. Even though the promo code suggests that the offer lasts through the end of the month, the terms use the ominous phrase “while supplies last”.
If the past is any indication, supplies definitely won’t last until the end of the month. That means you should definitely hurry or you might miss out!
More deals at Amazon
Are you looking to spend the money you just made with these Amazon Gift Card promotions? Don’t worry, there are plenty of amazing deals happening right now. Check out Amazon’s daily deals page for all the hottest ones.
