Right now, at Amazon, you can get $5 to spend on Amazon when you send a $50 Amazon gift card to someone via text message. Purchase a $50 Amazon gift card and send it via text, and receive the $5 credit that can be spent sitewide. This offer is only valid for eligible users.
This is a targeted offer that is only available to certain users—visit this Amazon page, and it will tell you if you are eligible for the deal. There seems to be no clear pattern for who is eligible and who isn’t, so it’s worth trying this out if your friends or members of your household have an Amazon account.
Slick Tip: You can also try entering the coupon SMSUS2020 during checkout, according to Slickdeals user comments on the deal page where we found the deal.
This free gift card promotion expires at 11:59 P.M. PT on December 22nd, so you have a while if you need time to choose who will be the recipient of the $50 gift card.
How to Get Your Free Gift Card
Once you have visited the offer page to determine your eligibility, select “Click to add the code to your account.” Once you have done that, select the virtual gift card of your choice, choose the $50 gift card value and opt for text message delivery. As you are checking out, make sure that you see the confirmation message: “Thank you for treating someone to an Amazon.com Gift Card. Now we’re treating you to a $5 promotional credit automatically applied to your account, and good for eligible products sold by Amazon.com.”
You may not see your credit right away, but you can expect to see a confirmation email within three days of placing the order. Once your credit has arrived, you are free to spend it on anything that is labeled “Sold by Amazon.com” or “Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC.”
