Amazon Prime Day Announced: June 21 & 22, plus an easy $10 in credits

Amazon just publicly announced their 2021 Prime Day: June 21 and 22. This yearly two-day money saving event is similar to Black Friday and will give members the opportunity to buy many items on a deal.

But really, the best part about Prime Day are the promotions that come along with it and allow you to stack to your savings. In past years, we’ve seen many offers that will allow you to save additional money by ordering through Alexa, using your Amazon credit card, applying just a single credit card point with Amex, Chase, Discover and Citi, and using any earned Amazon credits. As these promotions appear, I’ll be sure to write about them and then compile them all into a handy guide prior to Prime Day.

Amazon Prime Day $10 credit

The first promotion that has popped up is the opportunity to get a free $10 credit to use during Prime Day. All you have to do is purchase a $40 gift card to qualify. You can purchase the gift card here and use promo code GIFTFORPD21. Alternatively, you can also click the “Apply to code button” in the offer page.

This promotion expires June 20 and you’ll receive the credit in your account within two days after your gift card purchase. This is a one time offer per account.

How to Get Amazon Prime

As the name describes, Amazon Prime Day is limited to those Amazon members who have an Amazon Prime membership. If you do not have a Prime membership, your best bet is to sign up for a free trial. 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. Alternatively, you can also pay by the month — 12.99 per month — which might be a better option if you are looking for a membership only during Amazon Prime Day, during Black Friday/Cyber Monday and throughout the holiday period.


While Prime Day hasn’t officially started, there are some deals that have launched early. Such as 6-free months of Amazon music with select Echo devices, 30% off on Amazon brands, discounted TVs and a higher cash back welcome offer with the Amazon credit card.

Fingers crossed we see some great promotions over the next few weeks.

You may want to note this $10 credit only works for exactly a $40 card. I had just clicked $50 figuring that this meant $40 or more but nope – has to be exactly $40 or the code will get an error.

I used the link, entered $40 as the custom amount of the gift card, added to cart, went to cart and entered the code. Result: “The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.”

Same here. Maybe this applies only to the primary Prime account holder?
