Special gift card deals for Black Friday & Cyber Weekend

Amazon was running more than a dozen great gift card deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year. Sadly, nearly all of them have now ended.

But the good news is that Amazon’s best Black Friday gift card deal is still available now!

This terrific Amazon gift card deal gets you an $8 promotional credit when you spend $40 or more on an Amazon eGift card. You should be eligible for this deal as long as it’s your first time buying the gift card in question.

According to Amazon, it’ll take up to 48 hours for the promotional credit to be added to your account.

Are you wondering whether or not you’re eligible? Head over to this page and you should see text that says, “Amazon.com (Select Accts) Get an $8 promotional credit with a $40 Gift Card purchase. Valid for first-time gift card customers only. Shipping is free.”

That being said, some people who don’t see that text are reporting that they still got the deal!

Multiple readers have said that they contacted Amazon customer care and sent a screenshot of the deal text on this page. It clearly says, “Exclusive offer: Get a $8 promotional credit with a $40 Gift Card purchase” Then, people are saying that Amazon gave them the promotional credit as a result.

Also, a great trick is that you can use your own email address as the eGift card recipient. That way, you’re just loading $40 onto your own Amazon account and getting an additional $8 credit in the process.

Buy a $40+ Gift Card and Get an $8 Amazon Credit Buy a $40+ Gift Card and Get an $8 Amazon Credit Spend $40, Get $8 Available on Amazon

There’s no indication of when this deal is set to expire. That unfortunately means it could disappear at any time, so take advantage now while you still can.

Best Amazon gift card deals of 2022

Amazon card promotion

Have you ever heard of Amazon Reload? If you answered “no,” that’s actually a good thing. It means you’re almost certainly eligible for an awesome card promotion that gets you a $12 credit for free!

First-time reloaders can use Amazon Reload to add $100 or more to your Amazon account in a single transaction. If you’re eligible for this offer, you’ll get a $12 Amazon credit added to your account once you’re done.

FREE MONEY: First-time users get a $12 Amazon credit when you reload $100 FREE MONEY: First-time users get a $12 Amazon credit when you reload $100 Add $100, Get $12 Free Available on Amazon

Figuring out whether or not you’re eligible for this great offer couldn’t be easier. Just visit Amazon’s terms and conditions for the Reload promo.

If you see a message that says, “Sorry, you are not eligible for this promotion,” you’re out of luck. That means you’ve used Amazon Reload at some point in the past.

But if you see Amazon’s terms and conditions instead, you’re good to go.

Save $10 when you try Amazon pickup

Amazon Pickup PromotionImage source: Amazon

We like to include various different promotions in addition to Amazon gift card deals. And now, there’s a great new promo that just about anyone can take advantage of.

The new Amazon pickup promotion lets you save $10 on your order the first time you try Amazon pickup. That’s like getting $10 for free!

For those unaware, Amazon now offers a new pickup service. Instead of having your order delivered to your home, you can have it dropped at a pickup location for you to retrieve at your convenience. That way, you don’t have to worry about things like rain, snow, or porch pirates.

Here’s how the promo works.

  • First, check this page on Amazon’s site to find an Amazon pickup location near you.
  • Place an order for $20 or more on Amazon and choose the pickup location as your shipping address
  • Enter the promo code 10TRYPICKUP at checkout

This promotion is set to last through December 31, 2022, so you have plenty of time to take advantage.

Save $10 the first time you try Amazon pickup for the first time Save $10 the first time you try Amazon pickup for the first time Save $10 Available on Amazon

You can read more about the Amazon pickup promo on this page.

$150 gift card with Amazon Visa Rewards Signature Card

As you can see in the screenshot above, Amazon is offering some incredible welcome bonuses when you sign up for an Amazon Visa Rewards Signature Card.

If you sign up for the standard Amazon Rewards Visa Card, you’ll instantly get a $60 Amazon gift card upon approval. That’s a terrific extra perk, and it’s in addition to all the standard perks like cash-back rewards.

Or, if you sign up for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card instead, you’ll get a free $150 Amazon gift card upon approval! Plus, you’ll also get boosted perks and rewards, as you can see in the chart above.

Get up to $150 when you sign up for an Amazon Rewards Visa Card Get up to $150 when you sign up for an Amazon Rewards Visa Card Up To $150 FREE! Available on Amazon

Amazon launched a new promotion a few months ago and it’s one of the best gift card deals yet. Why? Because it’s so easy!

All you need to do is make a purchase using Amazon Pay. When you do, Amazon will give you a free $5 Amazon gift card. That’s really all there is to it.

On top of that, there’s even a special page full of special deals for Amazon Pay only. That means you can save money on your Amazon Pay purchase, plus you’ll get a $5 Amazon gift card!

If you’re not eligible for any other promotions in this roundup, don’t worry. There’s still one great Amazon promotion that you might be able to take advantage of.

Here’s how it works. All you need to do is head over to the Amazon Gift Card page and choose an amount of $50 or more.

Now, here’s a trick you should always keep in mind. If you want to get an Amazon card for someone as a present, you can. But you can also just enter your email address as the eGift card recipient. That way, you’re not spending any cash at all! Instead, you’re simply loading $50 onto your own Amazon.

This is the important bit. When you go to pay for your order, enter discount code USGIFTCARD21 at checkout. When you do, you’ll see a confirmation that the promotion worked. Then, you’ll have an extra $10 Amazon credit added to your Amazon account within two to three days.

FREE MONEY FROM AMAZON: Buy a $50 Amazon Gift card, get a $10 credit FREE! FREE MONEY FROM AMAZON: Buy a $50 Amazon Gift card, get a $10 credit FREE! Spend $50, Get $10 Available on Amazon

Amazon’s terms and conditions for this promotion are right here. But we’ll save you the suspense and highlight the biggest caveat with this promo.

This Amazon card promotion is only eligible for first-time Amazon card customers buying one on Amazon’s website. Note that this promotion is subject to availability and retailer terms. You’re fine if you’ve bought an Amazon card in a grocery store or some other physical retailer. But if you’ve ordered an Amazon card or Amazon e Gift card from Amazon’s site, you’re not eligible for this promo.

Amazon’s terms and conditions say that this deal ended a while ago. However, we’re hearing from readers that the promo still works for them.

In other words, you should definitely take full advantage and give it a shot.

Get $25 when you add a card to Amazon Wallet

Amazon card promotion

In addition to the fantastic Amazon gift card deals and promotions above, there’s another new Amazon offer you need to check out. This one is different from the rest because you don’t actually need to spend any cash to get the credit.

All you need to do is add a credit or debit card to Amazon Wallet, and you’ll get a $25 credit for free!

Here are the steps you’ll need to follow:

  1. Sign in to your Amazon.com account
  2. Click the ‘Add a Card’ widget from the advertisement and enter your credit card or debit card details.
  3. The credit will be applied to your Amazon.com account after successfully registering your card.
  4. To redeem the credit, make subsequent eligible purchases using any valid payment method.

How easy is that?

Get a $25 credit when you add a debit or credit card to Amazon Wallet Get a $25 credit when you add a debit or credit card to Amazon Wallet Get $25 Free Available on Amazon

There are a bunch of terms and conditions for this promotion. Only certain customers are eligible, and there are other restrictions too.

The deal page says that only people who receive an “Add-a-card” promo email or are served an advertisement for the promo can take advantage. Of course, how do you know if you were served an ad and missed it? Also, the email notifying you of this promotion might’ve been caught by your spam filter.

The best thing to do is simply to try out this awesome promo and see if it works for you. Read about all the details on Amazon’s terms and conditions.

Amazon gift card deals for everyone

Amazon Card Promotions and Deals

Only certain people are eligible for the offers that add free Amazon credit to your account. Meanwhile, there’s a special page that sometimes lists special Amazon card offers available to everyone!

Right now, there are several great Amazon card offers available on Amazon for a limited time. Definitely check out Amazon’s gift cards page for more.

Be aware that the Amazon card offers along the top of the page often disappear. Every time they do, however, they come back a few days later. So if you check that page and you don’t see any offers there, check back again a day or two later, and you should be pleasantly surprised.

Also of note, you should keep one thing in mind. Gift cards obviously make great gifts, but you can also send these digital Amazon cards to your own email address and get the bonus credits for free!

Special coupons for Prime members only

In addition to the current batch of Amazon gift card deals that are available to everyone, there are also some special coupon deals that are only available to select shoppers. And as you might’ve guessed, the select group we’re talking about is Prime subscribers.

On top of all the other perks that come with Prime, there’s an added benefit most people are unaware of. Amazon has a special Prime Member Coupons page packed with hundreds of coupon deals. Of course, only Prime subscribers can get in on the action here.

You’ll find deep discounts on best-selling products from across all of Amazon’s top categories. This is a page that you definitely need to visit regularly to see all the new savings you can score.

Expired Amazon gift card deals that might come back

The promotions listed above are all currently active. They give you so many opportunities to score free money from Amazon using various gift card deals and offers. But there are also more promotions out there that expired recently, and we’re going to list several of them down below.

Why would we want to tell you about expired Amazon gift card promotions, you ask? The answer is simple.

Anyone who is a longtime shopper on Amazon knows that the retailer always offers the same deals over and over again. Anytime a discount on a popular product ends, it’s a very safe bet that it’ll be back again sometime soon.

The same is true with Amazon gift card offers. So many promotions end only to start up again a few weeks or months later.

With that in mind, we’re keeping a running list of recent Amazon gift card promos and other free money deals down below. You should check back with this list periodically because one or more of these expired offers could come back anytime without warning!

Prime Early Access Sale 2022: Special deals on Oct 11-12

UPDATE: The Prime Early Access Sale has ended and so have these great deals. So many of our readers took advantage of them though, and hopefully, you did too. We’re leaving this info here because it likely gives you a good idea of what to expect during Amazon’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

There are so many great Amazon gift card deals out there that aren’t overly time-sensitive. Before we get to all those, however, we want to highlight a few special offers that are only available during the Prime Early Access Sale.

In other words, you can only get these awesome deals on October 11 and October 12. Also, you’ll need to be a Prime member. If you don’t already subscribe, consider starting an Amazon Prime free 30-day trial.

During the Prime Early Access Sale in 2022, there are three special offers that get you free money. You can read about them all in our Prime Early Access Sale gift card deals roundup, but we’ll run through the basics here.

First, you can get a $10 Amazon credit when you spend $50 or more on certain gift cards. And here’s the best part: This promotion works with Amazon eGift cards.

That means you can send a $50 eGift card to your own email address and get the $10 credit without spending a dime. Instead, it’ll be like you used Amazon Reload to add $50 to your account!

Just be sure to use the coupon code NEWGC2022 at checkout. This promotion also works with other gift cards and you can see them all right here.

Prime Members Only: Buy a $50 Gift Card, Get a $10 Credit Prime Members Only: Buy a $50 Gift Card, Get a $10 Credit Spend $50, Get $10 Available on Amazon

Next, there are two Microsoft 365 deals that include a free Amazon gift card.

The Microsoft 365 Family + $50 Amazon gift card bundle for $89.99 is the best deal. A year of Microsoft 365 Family costs $99.99 on its own, so you’re saving $10 and getting a free $50 Amazon gift card.

You can also get the Microsoft 365 Personal + $30 Amazon gift card bundle for $58.88. Again, a year of Microsoft 365 Personal costs $69.99. That means you’re saving $11 and getting the $30 gift card for free.

Last but not least, Amazon Prime credit card users get 15% back on many of the best deals of the Prime Early Access Sale. This offer works with the Amazon Prime Visa Card, Prime Store Card, and Amazon Prime Secured Card.

Check out all the details on Amazon’s Prime credit card page.

Buy a $50 Amazon eGift Card, get a $5 credit

Amazon card promotion

UPDATE: Amazon has ended this promotion, but we’re keeping all of the info below. This deal ended and came back once before already, so you might want to try it out just to see if it returned again.

Next, we have a great Amazon gift card deal/promotion that actually already ended. We’ll still tell you about it, though, and we’ll explain why.

This one was simple: just buy an Amazon eGift Card of $50 or more and use the code THANKYOUGC21 at checkout. When you did, you got a $5 Amazon credit!

Like the other Amazon card promotions mentioned above, this one had eligibility requirements that were quite unclear. Your best bet was to visit the Amazon terms and conditions page to check.

If you saw the dreaded “Thank you for your interest in Amazon Gift Cards. Unfortunately, you are not eligible for this offer.” message, you were out of luck. If you saw terms and conditions, you’re in!

Here’s the important stuff from the promo page:

Terms & Conditions In order to qualify for the promotional credit, you must: (1) be the recipient of the corresponding offer (either via email or on Amazon.com); (2) buy at least $50 in Amazon eGift Cards (“GCs”) in a single order at Amazon.com; and (3) enter the promotional code “THANKYOUGC21” in the “Gift Cards & Promotional Codes” box when you check out, or click the button to add the coupon to your account.

As noted above, this deal unfortunately ended this past December. However, we’re still going to keep this information here because sometimes Amazon decides to launch similar promotions soon after deals like this end. If that does end up happening, it’ll be on the same page as this deal that’s now expired.

FREE AMAZON CREDIT: Buy a $50 Amazon eGift card, get a $5 credit FREE! FREE AMAZON CREDIT: Buy a $50 Amazon eGift card, get a $5 credit FREE! Spend $50, Get $5 FREE Available on Amazon

Get paid $5 to stream a movie

Amazon card promotion

UPDATE: This deal is now over, but we’ll leave the information here. There’s a good chance Amazon will start this promotion again sometime soon, so be sure to check back periodically.

Is that last heading a typo? Can you really get paid $5 just for streaming a movie? Believe it or not, yes, you really can.

Amazon is offering a special limited-time promotion to Prime subscribers. If you’re an “eligible customer” (again, there’s no clarification as far as what that means), Amazon will give you a $5 credit for streaming something using Prime Video.

All you have to do is visit the promo page, click the banner at the top, and watch videos. It’s that simple.

Watch any video included with Prime and earn a $5 Amazon credit! Watch any video included with Prime and earn a $5 Amazon credit! View This Promo Available on Amazon

The terms and conditions are located at the bottom, but this is a no-brainer. Just stream a movie or an episode of your favorite show, and you’ll get paid $5!

Get a $10 credit when you buy a $100 Apple Gift Card

Amazon Cyber Monday Gift Card Promotion 2021

UPDATE: This deal is now sold out, but we’re leaving all the info in this post. Why? Because last time it sold out, it came back a few days later and stuck around for more than a month. In other words, definitely give it a shot and see if it’s working again.

Do you have an Apple fan in your life? Do you love Apple products yourself? In either case, there’s a limited-time Amazon Christmas card offer that you need to take advantage of.

Just spend $100 or more on an Apple Gift Card and use the coupon code APPLEDIGITAL at checkout. When you do, you’ll get a $10 Amazon credit!

There’s also a simple trick you can use if you’re planning to buy some Apple gadgets yourself. If you send an Apple Gift Card to your own email address, you’ll end up getting $10 for free! You’re going to spend that cash on Apple products anyway, right? With that in mind, you might as well get an extra $10 from Amazon.

Here’s the confirmation you’ll see when you enter the promo code:

Amazon gift card promotion

You can find all the terms and conditions for this deal right here on Amazon. Just scroll down to the section labeled “special offers and product promotions.”

Also, keep in mind that offers like these tend to sell out fast. Even though the code suggests that the offer lasts through the end of the month, the terms use the ominous phrase “while supplies last.” If the past is any indication, supplies definitely won’t last until the end of the month. That means you should definitely hurry, or you might miss out!
