    Woo hoo!!! Let the shopping commence!

    • Tracy

      Yippeeee!

  2. Anne

    My fav Prime deal! I didn’t get the message above about the promo details, but I’m hoping it still works. On the app, it just said my promo was successfully applied.

    • Heather

      Same here, so i’m hoping it works. Does it matter if we buy physical or digital gift cards?

      • Anne

        I did a physical card, since the wording above mentioned shipping. I did go back and try and see what it would say through the website (not app) and it said I’d already used the promo, so I think it will work. Time will tell!

      • bdubs

        It crashed every time I tried for a mailed card so I did the ecard and it looks like it worked!

    • elayne

      I didnt either but I contacted them and was told that I should receive a confirmation email shortly.

  3. Ashley

  7. Mia

    Grrrr….i feel so dumb.
    I just bought a $50 agc ths morning.

    • Kristin

      They will apply it. I did the same thing and just did the chat hours later and they applied it no problem.

  8. Melody

    Does this include egift cards?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes it does! Be sure to enter the promo code!

  9. Charlene

    Does this work for egift cards?

    • Tiffany

      I just did it for an egift card and it worked

      • Iwhuff

        I did an e-gift card last night, haven’t received notification in my email about the promotion after applying it to my cart.

  10. Danielle

    Thank you for sharing this! I did this as well as the other offer: $10 FREE when you load $100 into your Amazon account.

    • Miriam

      Is there a code for this deal? 🙂

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing your score with us!

  11. Karen

    Thanks so much! Keep up the good work! Happy Prime Day!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re most welcome, Karen! Thanks for the sweet feedback!

  12. Charlene

    I just ordered an egift card & NOTHING stating the message above.

    • CJ

      I just purchased an ecard. I got the message above when I was going through the purchase process, not after I completed the order. Make you sure you also used the code provided.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi there! Be sure to enter the code above to score the offer. Hoping that helps!

  13. DJ

    $5 extra is good for me.

  14. Charlene

    Well I tried again & it said the code was already used so I guess I will find out in 2 days. Thank you for the info. Half of my message above didn’t post. Sorry about that.

  15. LindseyB

    I just tried it for an e-gift card and I never got the $5 promotion

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm, were you able to enter the code as listed above?

  16. Debbie in PA

    Thanks! There’s a cute physical card in a little travel tin I ordered for a gift and applied the promo

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      What a cute score! YW!

  17. Judy Trac

    Why u gotta have prime to get the deal

    • Heather

      Because it’s a Prime Day deal.

  18. Emily

    I did the ecard and it said in my cart when I put the promo code in that my order qualified. I’ve already applied the balance of my ecard to my next Amazon Prime deal. I got a T-Fal pan on sale and then antoher 25% off.

  19. Lauren

    I did the print at home gift card option and I got a message in the cart that it was successfully applied! Thanks so much!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! You’re welcome!

  20. Tammy

    I know this is probably a silly question but I figured if anyone would know the answer it would be someone on hip2save! I’m probably the last person on earth who doesn’t have Amazon Prime. I do have some money on an Amazon account though (from one of my Apps). My question is, can I transfer the money from my account to someone who already has an Amazon Prime account? My mother has an Amazon account, so can I transfer my $$ to her account? Thanks in advance!

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I don’t think you can do that, but can you purchase an Amazon gift card for her with it?

    • Abbey

      FYI your Mom can add you onto her Prime account. It’s under manage your household. You can add one person to share prime benefits with. Most people probably do it with their spouses but they told us it didn’t matter that we were living in separate houses.

  21. Rockstar

    Can promotional credit be applied to any seller or only Amazon?

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      It should work on anything in your Amazon cart at checkout. Hope that helps!

  22. Mlh211

    Hmmm… I purchased an e-card and applied the code but did not get a message stating the $5 credit. Wonder if I should call customer service tomorrow.

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You should also see it on your Amazon account if you try to make a purchase.

  23. Rti

    where shud u enter the code..? after selecting amount and confirm card, it says Reload. where shud i enter code for 5$??

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You will enter it at the final screen at checkout. 🙂

  24. ree

    yay worked on egift to myself. thanks!

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

  25. Kristina

    worked for me thanks!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! You’re welcome!

  26. Daisy

    I wonder….Can you do a “print at home” Amazon gift card and send it to yourself and get the $5 right away? Has anyone tried it?

    • Dkp91576

      Yes you can send to yourself! And the $5 will appear at Checkout just like a coupon.

  27. Richard

    WOW, Great Post and Deal. Thank you HIP2SAVE!!! Additional 5% Cash Back if you pay with the Amazon Prime Store Card!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

  28. hip2trade

    After reading the reviews it gave me pause even though I have bought numerous Amazon gift card with no issues. Decided to pass.

  29. Chiajanine

    Is this still active?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes it is! Be sure to follow the link above and enter the code as listed in the post! 😉

  30. Maureen

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re welcome!

  31. Ari

    Got my gift card but no $5 credit even though it said the code was successfully applied.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm, You will receive an email from Amazon within two days of purchase, that your credit has been added to your account. It will also include instructions on how to redeem it. Hope that helps!

  32. Amy3

    Thanks, just sent one out for a Birthday!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      What a great gift! You’re welcome!

  33. cindy

    I am wondering if you have a shared prime account, if both can get this deal separately. Not sure I know how to state the question.

  34. Emjay09

    Worked for me this morning! Such a no-brainer, $5 free! Thanks H2S!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

  35. VICKI

    I purchased this deal yesterday. It said I qualified for the $5 on the screen, but there was no code. I thought it would come in a separate e-mail, but I haven’t received one yet.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      HI there! Here are the details on receiving the offer – “Within two days of purchase, you will receive an email from Amazon that your credit has been added to your account and instructions on how to redeem it.” Hope that helps!

  36. mckeeversmom

    What am I doing wrong? I’ve tried adding an egift card and a regular gift card to my cart and neither one offers an area for a promo code nor do I get a message telling me I’m eligible for the $5.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi there! Be sure to enter code GCPRIME18. I am able to do that when I head to checkout. Hoping that helps!

  37. donna

    do i need to go through the app to make the promo code work? i ordered online and didn’t see anywhwere to put a promo code

  38. Karen Bosserman

    Got my egift card but no $5 credit even though it said the code was successfully applied.

  39. Carol

    I have tried to purchase the gc both in & out of the app. When I try to add the code, there’s a message that says I’ve already used the code…which I haven’t. Anyone know what’s up? Thanks!

    • Carol

      Never mind. I figured it out. I clicked on another link & it said it had already applied it to my account. 🙄

      • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Oh great! I’m glad you got it figured out. 🙂

  40. Linda

    Is this still working?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      It appears this has now ended. Darn!

  41. Dawn

    Thank you so much!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Dawn! Glad you could grab he offer before it ended!

  42. Tracy

    Thank you!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome!

  43. Sarah Sloan

    Anyone get the email yet about the $5? Nothing yet for me.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi there! You should receive an email about your credit within 2 days. Be sure to contact customer service if you do not receive it!

    • moria

      I got my email yesterday.

  44. Kat

    The email doesn’t explain how to redeem it. Anyone know how?

  45. nikki

    I never got the credit, so I had to chat with customer service.
