There’s one last way to score a few extra dollars before Prime Day begins 

Prime Day is less than 24 hours away. In fact, it starts tonight and runs through July 12. However, even with mere hours to go before the big event, you can still score a few extra bucks to use on your shopping spree. Whether you want to buy wireless earbuds or nasal strips, it doesn’t matter. This credit can be used on whatever you’d like to get from Amazon, even if the item is already on sale.

How to get your $5 credit from Amazon

The secret to getting your Amazon credit is to buy an Amazon e-gift card before Prime Day starts. That’s right, you get rewarded for simply being a giving person. While it is super simple to earn your credit, there are five things you need to know.

  1. To get the $5 credit, you must be an Amazon Prime member. If you aren’t, you can sign up for free right now. When you sign up, you immediately receive all the benefits of being a Prime Member, including being eligible to participate in Prime Day.
  2. To earn your $5 credit, you must activate the offer before adding at least $50 to a single e-gift card and make the purchase. To activate the offer, click the blue square on Amazon’s e-gift card page.
  3. In order to qualify for this credit, you must complete your purchase before 11:59 p.m. PT on July 10, 2023. However, this is a limited offer with limited availability. If supplies run out, even if it is still July 10, you may not receive your credit. For this reason, it is crucial to act fast.
  4. If you have successfully met the first three criteria, you will immediately receive a $5 credit. This promotional credit is valid until 11:59 p.m. PT on August 25, 2023.
  5. There is a strict limit of one promotional credit per Amazon Prime account.
