Up to $10 Amazon promotional credit when you buy gift cards

Amazon promotional credit

What’s the Amazon promotional credit deal?

Receive $10 in promotional credit to spend on Amazon.com when you purchase $50 in gift cards through January 31st, 2017. This deal’s been doing the rounds for some time now (though the promo code needed is continually updated) and it still works for many targeted accounts. The offer is for either electronic or physical Amazon gift cards when you spend $50 on gift cards in one order.

We posted a similar targeted promotion in the past, where readers reported success in receiving the credit to their Amazon accounts. Unfortunately, though, if it worked for you in the past, it’s unlikely that it will work again with the same account, but if yours is a multiple-Amazon-account household, try again!

If you’re not targeted for the promotional credit, you’ll see a message stating that you are not eligible for the offer:

How do I get the Amazon promotional credit deal?

This link may first tell you if you were targeted for the free $10 credit without having to add the gift cards to your basket, but you’ll need to be logged in to check. If you’re not logged in first, though, Amazon will tell you to sign in and refresh the page to see if you qualify:

Alternatively, simply add the $50 of gift cards to your cart and proceed to checkout, where you can enter the code 0117GCARDS in order to get the $10 credit. If you have been targeted for the offer, Amazon will let you know and this will be confirmed by email within three days.

If you’re not eligible for the $10 credit, you may well qualify for a different offer to receive $5 credit when you reload your Amazon.com Gift Card Balance for the first time and with at least $100:

Sign in to your Amazon.com account and then check your eligibility of this offer here. To qualify for the offer you’ll need to:

  • Reload your balance for the first time using the account that you’re logged in to
  • Reload $100 or more to that account
  • Reload by clicking the yellow ‘Reload Your Balance’ button

You’ll then get an email confirming your $5 Amazon.com Gift Card reward.

What else do I need to know about the Amazon promotional credit deal?

Though your gift cards won’t expire, you’ll need to use your promotional credit by February, 2017; check the T&C of your email for the exact date.

In the recent past, the promotional code 1116GCARDS also worked, so you can try this too if needed. It may have expired, though, as the code itself indicates that it may have been just for 2016 use.
