Amazon Prime Day offers are just one of the benefits of being a member of Amazon Prime. Here’s another one: Amazon is offering at least $ 52 in credits to Prime members ahead of the big sale event, which will take place on July 12th and 13th. Below we have highlighted the best promotions. This is an easy way to accumulate money to spend on Amazon, especially if you want to treat yourself (responsibly!) During Prime Day.
We want to point out that most of these promotions require you to spend money to get the credits. If you do not plan to pay to see it Light year, for example, you should not choose this promotion. Think carefully about whether the promotion is worth it.
Be sure to check out our Amazon Prime Day coverage to catch up with all the sales – there are already a lot of early deals. Our Prime Day advice guide will also help you find out when a discount is not worth it.
Special Offer for Gear Readers: Get to 1 year subscription to WIRING for $ 5 ($ 25 discount). This includes unlimited access to WIRING.com and our print magazine (if you will). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.
Get up to $ 52 in credits on Amazon
Before we dive in, here are some things you should know. First, you must be a Prime member to take advantage of this feature. Second, credits are automatically added to eligible accounts once the applicable bid criteria are met. Amazon will email you when these credits have been added. Frustratingly, there’s no way to see the full balance of your promotional credits in your Amazon account, but once added, they will automatically apply during the purchase for purchases of eligible items shipped and sold by Amazon.
Note: Credits can take a day or two to add to your account, so it’s best to use them sooner rather than later if you want them in time for Prime Day.
