Here's How to Get $5 For Free on Amazon This Prime Day

Every 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 2018, you can pick up a $25 Amazon gift card and receive $5 in Amazon store credit. Essentially, it's free money.

Buy Amazon Gift Card

Of course, there are a few caveats. You have to be a Prime member to earn the store credit, and you have to enter the promo code "GCPRIME18" when you check out. The deal begins at 12pm (PT) on on July 16, 2018, and ends at 11:59pm (PT) on July 17, 2018. 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.

Last year, Amazon offered the same 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. 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 $25 dollars on Amazon in the next year, we highly recommend you take advantage of this deal. Passing up on it is just leaving cash on the table.

It seems there is no limit for using this promo code... so multiple $25 would work I suppose?

This is what I got when I tried to use it a 2nd time, "
This gift card or promotional code has already been applied to your account balance.'"​

It seems you *cannot* do more than one on the same account.

The $5 will show up at check-out as GC Prime Day Credit but ONLY for items sold by Amazon.com. Learned that from Customer Service when I couldn't find the credit anywhere in my account. Once I knew how it worked, I went to Check-out with an item that qualified and there was the credit.
