Amazon’s second Prime Day event of the year, coined Amazon Early Access Sale runs today and tomorrow and tomorrow and right now you can snag your first deal. Right now — and during the two-day event — you can purchase a $50 Amazon gift card and receive a $10 promotional credit. You’ll need to use code NEWGC2022 at checkout.
This is by far one of the easiest ways to receive free credit to Amazon, although you won’t be able to use it for two days — after the sale ends. Within two days of your qualifying Amazon.com Gift Card purchase, you’ll receive an email confirmation that your $10.00 promotional credit has been applied to your account.
You can also continue to earn even more Amazon promotion credits with third-party merchant gift card purchases. Just purchase a gift card to Panera, Gap, Fanatics, DoorDash and a few others (which offer a choice of options) and you’ll receive anywhere between $10 to $15 in credits.

How to Get Amazon Prime
As the name describes, Amazon Early Access Sale 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, the cost is currently $139 for the year. Alternatively, you can also pay by the month — 14.99 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.
For a full membership, TopCashBack is offering members $15 cash back by signing up through their site. 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.
