Amazon Birthday Gift: First-Time Gifters Get $5 Amazon Credit (Through September 22nd)

6:30 AM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Do you have any Facebook friends celebrating birthdays over the next few weeks?! If so, purchase one or more gifts through Amazon Birthday Gift for your Facebook friend(s) by September 22nd and you’ll snag yourself a FREE $5 credit!

Here’s how it works…

* Head over here and log in to your Amazon account
* Scroll down and search for one or more Facebook friends expecting a birthday
* Choose at least one friend to surprise with an Amazon Birthday Gift (you’ll have the option to gift them an Amazon Credit of $1-$25).
* You can even send invites to your other Facebook friends to ask them to contribute to the Birthday Gift
* On the day of your friend’s birthday, the gift will post right to their Facebook Timeline
* Your friend can then redeem the gift on at anytime – it never expires!
* After you purchase at least one Amazon Birthday Gift by September 22nd, you’ll earn yourself a $5 promotional credit that will automatically be applied to your Amazon customer account no later than 5 days after the end of the promotional period. The promotional credit will be reflected as a $5 savings on the Review Your Order page on qualifying orders (note that this credit expires on September 30th).

* Note that this offer is for first-time gifters only and you must have connected your Amazon customer account to your Facebook account to purchase a gift through Amazon Birthday Gift and keep these accounts connected through the gift delivery date.

(Thanks, Freebie Finding Mom!)

    My hubby has birthday in 3 days! I got a $1 gift credit for him and will get $5 myself. That is so great!

  • Erin says:

    Does anyone know if I can do this for a birthday that was a few weeks ago? I still owe her a gift. :)

  • Ann Dee says:

    Darn. The credit can’t be used on digital stuff. I only buy kindle books on amazon. Oh well.

  • Nancy says:

    do we get $5 each for all the friends we gift ?

  • Emily says:

    My husband has a birthday next week. I just signed him up for a $1 gift card–haha, I sound so generous don’t I?! I figured we’ll use the $4 we get back on something we need for our house (we have Prime so we shop on Amazon quite regularly) and of course get him a real gift as well:)

  • T.S. says:

    Do you have to do it before Sept 22 or does the persons birthday have to be before the 22nd?? My bday is October and I was just about to send the $1 to myself from hubby’s Facebook until I saw the Sept 22nd thing…I don’t wanna waste the $1 if we won’t get back the $5. Help plz! Thanks :)

    Will this work for kindle books?

    I contacted amazon and they have no record of this promo, hip2save you owe us all our gift card purchases back. I spoke with amazon this morning.. No record of this promo existing… You false advertised, check your sources before you go and post things… k thanks

      Sounds a little harsh, Collin does her best to make sure that all deals are legit before she posts them.

    • T.S. says:

      The link above takes you right to the Amazon page, so maybe you spoke to someone who just doesn’t know about it! Send them a screen shot of the page when you click that link or talk to someone else. It’s common for some to not know about something when it comes to customer service. And there is no need to be nasty to Collin who works so hard each day to try to save us money. I am sure if you are using this site you have saved well more then you lost.

  • Brittney says:

    It looks like the promo has changed to $3 through October 25 now.

  • KS says:

    I just contacted Amazon because I thought today was the day to receive the $5 credit I had qualified for back at the beginning of the month. Now the promotion you see when you go to the link says only $3 and the promotion dates are changed! It now says 9/23-10/25 and they tried to tell me I wouldn’t get my credit until November1st! This makes no sense because how could I qualify for the promo when I bought the birthday gift before the promo even began. I think they knew they’d messed something up and they agreed to give me my credit now. Not sure what’s going on, but keep your confirmation email and just contact them.
