I did some searching and did not see this posted. You can get $5 off your $25 purchase at Amazon by installing the Amazon Assistant browser extension (for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge & Sogou Explorer) and making a purchase by shopping through the browser extension.

Amazon Promotion Link [amazon.com]

Steps:
  1. Click the link above.
  2. Sign in and install Amazon Assistant browser extension
  3. Open the browser extension, go through tutorial and you should see message about redeeming $5 off $25 purchase, click the message to be redirected to Amazon
  4. Add $25 of eligible items to cart and check out.

Valid for only new Amazon Assistant users and on items sold from Amazon.com.

From their FAQ:
Why am I not seeing the $5 discount at Checkout?
To see the discount at Checkout, make sure that: 1) You start your purchase by clicking on Amazon Assistant, 2) The seller of the item is Amazon.com and not a third party seller, and 3) The eligible items cost at least $25 before shipping and tax.

^^You can uninstall the extension after following the steps. The credit will remain in your account. You are not required to keep the extension or to make the purchase through Amazon Assistant in order to use the promo credit .* This way, you're not selling your soul to Amazon for $5 as some are complaining about. I followed the steps, received the credit, removed the extension, and can confirm that the credit is still in my account.

*According to the fine print, you DO have to make the purchase through Amazon Assistant to use the promo credit. Has it been verified by anyone that the credit applies to regular Amazon purchases?

Fine Print:
  • Offer expires at 11:59 p.m. (PT) December 31, 2016.
  • Offer only applies to first-time customer installation of Amazon Assistant.
  • After you install Amazon Assistant, you will receive an e-mail from Amazon that indicates the $5 promotional credit has been added to your customer account. The e-mail will also provide instructions on how to redeem the promotional credit.
  • Promotional credit expires at 11:59 p.m. (PT) December 31, 2016.
  • Promotional credit only applies to purchases through Amazon Assistant and products sold by Amazon.com.
  • Promotional credit does not apply to digital content.
  • Offer good while supplies last.
  • Shipping charges and taxes may apply to discounted and free promotional items.
  • Items must be purchased in a single order and shipped at the same speed to a single address.
  • Offer limited to one per customer and account.
  • Offer may not be combined with other offers.
  • Taxes, shipping and handling, and gift wrap charges do not apply when determining minimum purchase amount.
  • The maximum benefit you may receive from this offer is $5.
  • Amazon reserves the right to modify or cancel the offer at any time.
  • Offer is non-transferable and may not be resold.
  • Offer discount will be allocated proportionally among all promotional items in your order.
  • If any of the products or content related to this offer are returned, your refund will equal the amount you paid for the product or content, subject to applicable refund policies.
  • If you violate any of these terms, the offer will be invalid.
  • Unless an Amazon Gift Card is the stated benefit of the promotion, promotional codes (including those placed directly in accounts) may not be redeemed for Amazon Gift Cards.

For those having issues getting the discount to show up: I wasn't able to get the discount to show up until I removed everything from my cart so it was empty, closed the browser, re-opened the browser, opened the Amazon Assistant add-in, clicked the 5 off 25 promotion link that appeared inside the Amazon Assistant, and then re-added items to my cart again (make sure items are sold by Amazon.com and total is over $25 before tax).

If you see message saying you aren't eligible, but have not used Amazon Assistant, double check to make sure that the Amazon Assistant doesn't already have the discount associated to your account. You can check this by installing the Amazon Assistant, opening it, and seeing if you have the "You have 21 days to use your promo" (or similar message) inside the Amazon Assistant add-in.

I ran into an issue where I redeemed the promo, closed the browser tab, tried to redeem the promo again and it told me I wasn't eligible. Once I checked in the Amazon Assistant, I found that the add-in told me I had a discount pending and I could click through to use it.

I don't know... I am kind of hoping this thing becomes useful. Like letting me know when a watched lightning deal is starting, or if the lightning deal in my cart is about to expire, or when I am called up from the waitlist. So I don't have to sit in the Amazon tab waiting for all this to happen. Because as soon I as go check my yahoo mail or something, the deal is gone!

Any browser you can install other than firefox, chrome, ie? Maybe can do it temporarily. I don't trust that the extension is removed cleanly.
Sogou Explorer.. whatever that is.
