Even though it’s turkey day (Happy Thanksgiving everyone!), Amazon has started its real Black Friday sales a day early. While new offers will pop up every day, there are some great ones today that you won’t want to miss. But, before you you go shopping, you’ll want to make sure to read this ultimate guide to stack your savings. In fact, you can get as much as $80 off your purchase just by using the right credit card.

How to Get Amazon Prime

You absolutely do not need Amazon Prime to shop at Amazon, but some deals will be limited to those with a prime membership. You’ll also receive free shipping, where some items will only ship for free if you meet a certain spend threshold. If you do not have a Prime membership, your best bet is to sign up for a free trial as it will give you 30 days of free prime access.

However, if you want to purchase a full membership, there are a few days to get a discount off of the normal $119 yearly cost. Or, if you happen to have a student e-mail address, you can get an Student Amazon Prime membership for half price or a free 6-month trial membership. There is also a good chance that we will see a Black Friday deal on membership — like we have in the past.

Amazon Device Deals

Many Amazon devices are up to 70% off. You can look at the entire list here, but we listed out some of our favorite deals as well:

Top Deals for Thanksgiving Day

Amazon Prime Day Credits, Promotions and Coupons

Watch an Amazon Prime Video, get $5 to Amazon

This is quite possibly the easiest credit you can earn. Simply watch a Prime Video — which is free with an Amazon Prime membership — and you’ll earn a $5 credit to use towards your holiday purchase. Your credit doesn’t expire for 14 days.

Add $50 to Amazon Cash, earn $5 in credits

Just add $50 to your Amazon Cash account and you’ll earn $10 in credits. This promotion is limited to new users and the promotional credit expires February 1, 2022.

Reload your Amazon.com gift card balance

Add funds to your Amazon.com gift card balance and you can earn an extra $10 when you load $100. This bonus offer is only valid for your first reload and you must be an Amazon Prime member.

Activate your Amex Offers

If you have an American Express Membership Rewards earning credit card, check your Amex Offers to see if you were targeted to earn an extra 5 points per dollar spent. If so, this is a great opportunity to earn an extra 10% return on your purchase (up to $500 spent), as long as you value your points at 2 cents apiece.

Use your credit card points

Just use one credit card point — from Amex, Chase, Capital One — and receive a discount off your purchase. These are targeted offers, so you’ll need to check to see if you are eligible. If so, you’l need to register for the offer, but make sure to use only one point and not the full amount of points to cover your purchase (it is not a good value).

For example, if you were targeted for the 50% off offer from American Express, up to $80, you can purchase the New Apple AirPod Pro for just $79.50. Normally, these AirPod’s cost $249.

Or the Instant Pot Duo Plus 9-in-1 is down to just $39.97 with the 50% off promotion from American Express. Originally, $139.99, so this is a massive savings!
