Amazon Prime Day kicks off in just a few days. The annual shopping event will take place on July 12 and 13. Before the sale starts, Amazon is giving you the opportunity to earn credits to put toward purchases made during the event.
You’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to start collecting credits. Memberships cost $15 a month or $139 a year.
Some of the offers require you to spend additional money to get credits, but others will grant you free credits in just a few simple steps. In most instances, the credits are only good on items sold directly by Amazon.com, not by third-party vendors.
Here are 6 ways to earn Prime Day credits in 2022:
Get $20 when you try Amazon Photos
You can earn a $20 credit, eligible to be used on a purchase of $40 or more during Prime Day, by trying out Amazon Photos for the first time.
Amazon Photos is a free app that allows Prime members to store an unlimited amount of full-resolution photos in the cloud. All you have to do to get the credit is save at least one photo through the app. You’ll then get an email confirmation with your credit within four days.
This deal ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on July 8.
Get $12.50 when you spend $50 on Amazon gift cards
You can earn a $12.50 Amazon credit when you buy a $50 Amazon gift card or reload an Amazon gift card with $50 on July 12 or 13.
To get the credit, add a $50 Amazon gift card to your cart and click the yellow “apply code to your cart” button or manually enter the code “EGCPRIME22” in the “Gift Cards and Promotional Codes” box during checkout.
You’ll receive an email with the credit within two days of purchasing the gift card. Once earned, it expires on August 28.
Get $10 when you fill out a Prime Day stampcard
Amazon introduced a stampcard program this year to entice Prime members to explore Prime benefits and earn credit.
To earn $10 in Amazon credit, first you’ll have to click ‘Activate Stampcard” on the stampcard landing page. To collect all four stamps, you’ll have to do the following:
- Make a Prime-eligible purchase of more than $5.
- Stream a show on Prime Video.
- Listen to a song with Amazon Music Prime.
- Borrow an eBook on Prime Reading.
Within 24 hours of completing the final task, the $10 credit will appear in your account. The credit expires 365 days after you receive it.
The stampcard program closes on July 13 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
Get up to $10 when you buy ‘Lightyear’ tickets and merchandise
You can earn up to $10 in Amazon Credit when you buy “Lightyear” movie tickets and merchandise.
To earn $5 in credit, you’ll have to buy at least one ticket to “Lightyear” from Atom. You must enter the code “LIGHTYEAR” during checkout on Atom. To earn another $5, you can buy eligible merchandise from Amazon, including LEGO sets, Funko Pops, books, and more.
The credits earned with this deal must be used during Prime Day. If not used by the end of Prime Day, they’ll expire.
Get $5 with the purchase of ‘Elvis’ tickets
You can earn a $5 Prime Day credit when you buy at least one ticket to see “Elvis” in theaters.
Like the “Lightyear” credit, tickets have to be purchased on Atom with the code “ELVIS” at checkout. The $5 credit must be used during Prime Day; it will expire at 11:59 p.m. PT on July 13.
Get a $200 Amazon gift card when you open an Amazon Prime credit card
You can get a $200 Amazon gift card instantly upon approval for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card. You can apply for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card online and receive an approval decision in seconds.
The card gives Prime members 5% back on Prime and Whole Foods purchases, plus 2% back at restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores, and 1% back on everything else. During Prime Day, Prime and Whole Foods purchases will earn 6% cash back.
