Amazon Courtesy Credit

+2 Deal Score
72,238 Views
Does anyone know what the recent Amazon courtesy credits are for? My account had $13 in courtesy credits and my husbands account had $4 in courtesy credit. We have not contacted Amazon about any item, so this was purely something done on their end. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm just wondering if some of the slow shipping credits somehow were posted differently. I choose slow shipping a lot, but have never had credits show up as actual cash except for last year when you could use them on physical books.

Where do you see how much your account has?

I just bought something (s&s) and it showed a courtesy credit of 3 separate $1.00 credits. Did not change my slow shipping (MP3) credits at all though, so not that.

Check this link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature....0811661#gc

Click the yellow "Check your balance" button. My slow shipping credits show under:
"AMAZON MP3" & "AMAZON INSTANT VIDEO".
My courtesy credits that applied to my order were equivalent to the balances under: "KINDLE EDITIONS" & "SOFTWARE/VIDEO GAMES".

Also, on my final order page it showed a $13 courtesy credit, but when I view invoice it shows them as 13 separate $1 credits.

In my case, upon making a purchase, a $1 "courtesy credit" reduced my mp3 credits by $1. My mp3 credits were "slow shipping" credits.

I did note before making the purchase there was an extra 1 in mp3 credits, which was subsequently deducted after the purchase.

No idea how they work or to what they are related.

I saw a post in another thread that said these were from "Prime Day" if your stuff was delayed at all.

They finally decided to send an email out I guess, because this was just emailed several times (probably per credit).

"Hello,

We're writing because you were eligible to receive a No-Rush Shipping promotional credit for your recent order(s), but it didn't apply correctly. To correct this, we've issued a $1 promotional credit to your account. This amount will automatically apply the next time you buy an eligible item shipped and sold by Amazon.com.

We value your business and hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,

Customer Service
Amazon.com

Please note: this e-mail was sent from a notification-only address that cannot accept incoming e-mail. Please do not reply to this message."

That makes sense. I just noticed I had $20 in my credit balance and had no idea where it came from. I bought a Kindle Fire on Prime Day and it's backordered till September.
