Amazon is running so many phenomenal sales right now, it’s tough to know where to begin. Among our readers, the best-seller this week has been Gosund’s best-selling Wi-Fi smart plugs. They work with Alexa and Google Assistant as well as with an app on your phone. While other smart plugs cost up to $25 each, these are just $3.75 apiece with coupon code LJFPY4K4. Another big one is the $600 YABER Pro V7 home theater projector, which is on sale for just $299.99. That’s a massive 50% discount! You can also get a great Sysperl robot vacuum for $69.99 or a foldable 4K camera drone for $59.99 with coupon code D25SAVE40. Looking for Apple AirPods? They’re all on sale right now!

Those deals are all fantastic. You really can’t go wrong with any or all of them. But as good as they are, they’ll only appeal to certain people who are looking for those particular types of products. There’s one special deal that will appeal to everyone though, and you’d have to be crazy to pass it up. That’s right, folks — Amazon is giving away free money again!

From time to time, Amazon runs deals that offer free Amazon credit under certain circumstances. Most of the time, you get free credit for buying an Amazon gift card or reloading your balance. Every once in a while, however, Amazon’s offers aren’t tied to gift cards. Such is the case right now, with a special new offer for Prime members.

As you know, there are a bunch of different benefits tied to Amazon Prime. It’s good for more than just fast shipping and streaming movies, after all. Among the many Prime benefits is Amazon Photos, a service that lets you back up full-resolution photos. Since Google canceled its unlimited photo storage offering tied to Google Photos, this is a particularly great alternative.

Thinking about giving Amazon Photos a shot? Well, now is the perfect time because Amazon will give you a free $15 Amazon credit just for trying it out!

If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber who has never tried Amazon Photos before, you’re eligible for the deal. All you need to do is install the Amazon Photos app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. When you upload your first photo from your mobile device, you’ll get a free $15 Amazon credit. Amazon will send you an email within seven days confirming that you’ve received the credit. Then, you’ll have until the end of the day on August 15 to spend the credit on an eligible purchase of $30 or more from

As for which purchases are eligible, it’s an extremely long list with millions of products on it. Anything sold by or Amazon Digital Services LLC is eligible except for gift cards. As long as you see “sold by” or “sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC” on a product page, you’re good to go.

This excellent Amazon offer is available until the end of the day on July 31. You’ll find all the terms and conditions right here on Amazon’s site. Long story short, however, you’ve got nothing to lose. Install an app, upload a photo, and you get a free $15 Amazon credit!
