Entered this morning to my Amazon account, and had this offer. Says it "only applies to physical products", but these serial stories are digital. YMMV:

Most people that try this are getting the $5 credit

Any stories on cinnamon toast crunch? Thats my favorite serial.
I wonder how much money these people make (if any). Kind of makes me want to bang out a few episodes of some sub-par nonsense and see if it gains any traction.

HOT VAMPIRE NEXT DOOR kind of sets the bar pretty low.
How is "start" defined? How many pages do I need to "read?"

Any idea whether the noted credit is limited to Vella-related purchases? I can definitely "start a story" for a fiver! Thanks, OP!

If we click on the OP's link and there is a "Read Now" button, does that mean we are eligible for the credit?

What are you seeing? Does it say you're ineligible?

The way I read this, you get the credit by starting a Vella story. It then can be used to buy a physical product sold by Amazon.com, but not to buy any future kindle books or any other digital product. So, you can use it to buy a CD, but not the MP3 version of the same album. Although presumably you can buy an auto-rip CD and get both Smilie
