My mom was browsing on my Amazon login and clicked gift cards. A promotion popped up offering a $15 promo credit if I bought at least $50 in Amazon gift cards in a single order by Oct 31st.

I guess I've never bought gift cards directly from Amazon before and it says the promo is for new gift card customers. I am not a new customer and have had Prime for many years

There was a button to click and automatically add the promo code. When I logged back in the next day, I added a print at home gift card for $50 and on the final checkout page, it showed the code was already applied. I screenshot everything and though this is a targeted promotion I wanted to make people aware as the deal and code was not posted here or elsewhere. I never received an email for this offer. I am not sure the exact URL for this deal other than I saw it when my mom clicked the gift card tab.

The code is OCT17PRIMEGC

Below is the exact text I saw, and I am including screenshots of the deal and what I saw in my cart after the promo was applied to my account.

Wow you type a huge wall of text and I still don't know what exactly it is I need to checkout on and the terms.

English not your first language?

Thanks, OP! Worked for me. I entered the code at checkout and it says I will get $15 promo credit applied to my account when gift card ships. Tried to rep you but I think my account is still too new. It doesn't look like your number changed.

So you actually had something show up at checkout indicating that you received this? I had the notice appear on Amazon yesterday (before I read this thread) so I added the coupon (it stated that it was ready and all I had to do was shop). I bought an eGift card and sent it (to myself at another email) but there was nothing showing in the final checkout. I have since deposited the gift card into my account (and actually used most of it on my monthly subscribe and save stuff - changed payment) but still nothing showing about the $15.

I didn't receive an email for this offer but it did appear when I logged into my account so I assumed (wrongly?) that I qualified.

I may chat with Amazon depending on your answer(s).

I didn't receive that at all so I'm hoping I'm still good. Only thing I received was on the page where I clicked the button to add the code and Amazon stated that the promotion was added and it's time to shop. Nothing at checkout at all about it though.

Thanks and Repped! Smilie

Edit: I just received an email stating that I was qualified and have received my $15 promotion. I didn't contact Amazon so the process was working silently in the background all along. Thanks OP and good luck to all! Smilie

Here is a possible alternate offer for those unable to get the $15 promotion.

The OP's offer of $15 did not work for me (promo was not accepted), but then I tried OCT17GIFT as a promo code and it was accepted with full offer details being confirmed for a $10 promo credit near the top of the checkout page.

The following link will get you $10 promo code with purchase of $50 in Amazon.com gift cards:
