Right now, using Amazon Reload for the first time will get you an extra $10 with any reload of $100 or more — if you’re a Prime subscriber. It’s free money just for reloading your gift card.
If you’ve never shopped with an Amazon gift card, you’ve probably never crossed paths with Amazon Reload. The service allows shoppers to directly reload their account’s gift card balances with their own credit or debit card and schedule automatic refills.
But if you can wait until October 26, you can nab a $15 promotional credit with the purchase of $50 or more in Amazon gift cards. You’ll have until the end of the year to take advantage of this offer.
Amazon provides these promotions to incentivize gift card use as a debit card. Doing so has a few benefits: Using an Amazon gift card like a debit card allows you to keep detailed track of your orders via the Gift Card Balance page. It also boils down all of your purchases to one line on your credit card bill — the charge from reloading your gift card.
Additionally, Prime members can earn 2% rewards on every reload after providing a linked bank account, debit card number, and US driver’s license number. This gets you even more value when loading cash onto your gift card.
If you’re not a Prime member yet and want to give it a shot, consider trying a free 30-day trial.
