Spend $10 on a Small Business purchase, get a $10 credit
Between now and Oct. 12, if you spend $10 or more on a small business product from Amazon, you’ll earn a $10 credit to spend on Prime Day. Truthfully, it is hard to fully understand which products qualify, but they do have a list of products listed out by category:
- Home & Kitchen
- Toys & Games
- Beauty & Personal Care
- Pet Supplies
This is an easy way to get $10 for free to Amazon — and even better if you were going to purchase one of these products anyways. No registration is required and you’ll receive an email within just a few minutes letting you know that the credit has hit your account.
Spend $10 at Whole Foods, get $10 to Amazon
Amazon will give you a $10 credit to spend during the two-day Prime Day event, if you are a Whole Foods Market shopper. All you have to do is spend $10 at Whole foods — either in-store or online — between Sept. 28 and Oct. 14, 2020 and you’ll receive the credit. You are limited to receiving just one credit per account. Just make sure you scan your linked Amazon/Whole Foods QR code during check-out.
Spend $10 at on Amazon Fresh, get $10 to Amazon
Place an order of $10 or more through Amazon Fresh between September 28 and October 14, and you’ll receive a $10 credit to use on Prime Day. With Amazon Fresh, as long as your order is $35 or more, your delivery will be free. I use Amazon Fresh (and Amazon Prime / Whole Foods) normally for my grocery shopping, but prices do differ between the two, so make sure to price compare.
Spend $10 at Amazon Books, Amazon Pop Up and Amazon 4-Star, get up to $20 to Amazon
If you happen to have an Amazon Books or Amazon Pop Up store near by, you can earn another $10 credit by spending $10 or more. These locations are limited, but you can find a list of them here. You are also limited to just one $10 credit for Amazon Books and Amazon Pop Up — even if you shop at both.
There is then a separate promotion, where you can earn another $10 at an Amazon 4 Star location — again, by spending $10 or more. These locations are also limited, but if you live in an urban area, there is a decent chance you’ll have one nearby.
With these two promotions combined, you can earn a total of $20 credits on Prime Day as long as you make your purchase by October 14.
Spend $10 at Amazon Go, get $10 to Amazon
Amazon has a very limited number of Amazon Go stores — where you can pick up breakfast, lunch and snacks — and if you are lucky enough to live near one of them, this is another opportunity to earn another $10 credit. Unfortunately though, they are only located in four cities — Chicago, New York City, San Francisco and Seattle — so most Amazon shoppers will not be able to take advantage of this particular credit.
Spend $10 through the Amazon app, get up to $20 to Amazon
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 Prime Day. Your credit actually doesn’t expire for 14 days, so you can actually technically use it after Prime Day is over.
Check your Amazon Prime Day credits
With so many credit opportunities, it might be hard to keep track of your credits, but fortunately Amazon is making it easy for you. You can check all your credits here to see what has/has not posted to your account. Once you see you’ve earned credits, you can go ahead and claim them, which will allow you to use the credits towards your Prime Day shopping.
With so many easy opportunities to earn Amazon Prime Day credits, this will definitely help you get an even better deal. You can even start shopping some early Prime-Day deals now.
