Every Amazon Prime Day, Slickdealers come out in force to hunt down the best deals. And every year, so far, the most popular deals have been Amazon gift cards. For Prime Day 2020, you can pick up an Amazon gift card of $40 or more and receive $10 in promotional Amazon store credit. You can also get the same deal if you reload an extant gift card balance with $40 or more. Essentially, it’s free money. The deal starts on October 13 at 12:00 a.m (PT).
Of course, there are a few caveats. You have to be a Prime member to earn the store credit, and the deal only lasts for a limited time, ending when Prime Day does. Also, you have to enter promo code GC20PRIME when you get the $40 gift card.
The deal ends at 11:59 p.m. (PT) on October 14, 2020 or while supplies last. There’s also a limit of one per customer. The credit also takes up to two days to be “shipped” digitally to your account, so you probably won’t be able to apply the credit to any of your Prime day purchases. Additionally, the credit will expire on November 29, 2020, so get your holiday shopping done early.
Previous Amazon Prime Day Gift Card Deals
Last year, Amazon offered a different deal, providing Prime members with $5 in store credit with the purchase of any Amazon gift card $25 or over. In 2016, you had to buy a $50 gift card to get a $10 credit, which could be a bit too high of an entry price for some Prime members. The current $40 deal is, objectively, a better value.
And back in 2015, users received a $10 credit when they purchased a 3-pack of $15 Amazon gift cards. Mathematicians out there will note that is actually a better deal ($45 for $10) than the 2016 deal, but it’s hard to get too upset about free money.
If you’re planning on buying anything over $40 dollars on Amazon in the next year, we highly recommend you take advantage of this deal.
Passing up on this offer is just leaving cash on the table.
