Check out these tips to help your chances of having your submission picked.


2. Consolidate prepaid cards onto one Amazon gift card.

If you have an assortment of prepaid cards in varying amounts, use them to reload your Amazon Gift Card, and combine the varying values to spend all in one place.

To do this, head over to Amazon’s gift card reload page and type in whatever remaining balance you have left on your card in the “$ Other” field. Add the card to your cart and head to checkout, then add that prepaid card as your form of payment. Once the transaction is complete, you can delete that card from your account.

“I took all my prepaid rebate cards that have random small amounts like $2.18 or $4.32 on them and reloaded my Amazon Gift Card balance. It’s so much easier than trying to keep track of the balance and have them charge that exact amount only at the store. I ended up with around $19 more to spend for Prime Day!” – Stacy, Hip2Save sidekick


3. Redeem loose change at Coinstar for Amazon gift cards.

Empty out those pockets, crack open your piggy bank, flip the couch cushions, and bring all your loose change to the nearest Coinstar machine. Upon redemption, choose the Amazon Gift Card payout so you receive the full value of your change and have it ready to spend during the Prime Early Access Sale!


4. Score up to $100 instantly upon approval of an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature card.

    I’ve been on the Amazon Shopper panel wait-list for about a year. I spend a lot of money at Amazon not just for my family, but also for my job–so I am not sure what the criteria is to be accepted as a panelist. πŸ€”

    It’s any paid review on Amazon?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Varsha! If you’re referring to the Amazon Shopper Panel, you would have to make purchases outside of Amazon (10 eligible receipts per month) in order to earn rewards. Once you’ve uploaded those eligible receipts, you’ll have the option to choose from a $10 Amazon Balance reward or $10 charitable donation. You will also receive short surveys about brands or products that may be of interest to you and you can earn rewards for each survey you complete. Hoping this is helpful! ❀️

    Put my name on the waitlist for the shopper panel!!! Thanks for these tips!!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! Good luck! πŸ€žπŸ’•

    I love Amazon Shopper Panel. Easy $10+ every month!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      ME TOO! πŸ’žπŸ™Œ

    I get a prepaid Visa every year as the rebate for my dog’s heartworm/flea treatment pills. $45 is a great rebate but I tended to tuck those cards away and then forget all about them until after they expired in the past. This works out way better.

  6. liltricky00

    I’ve been on the shopper panel since beta and love earning credits for normal shopping. I always do my fetch rewards then Amazon shopper panel. It makes it way easier to remember.

    • liltricky00

      Over $250 on Amazon rewards so far since I started. When you do your 10 receipts it gives you $10 monthly. Every other day or so there is an additional survey from .10 to 2.50 additional earnings. They also just started ad measurements which give you money additionally when ads are surveyed.

  7. Amy

    I am trying to do the shopper panel app, but it won’t let me log in. Amazon customer service says this is invite only

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Sorry for any confusion, Amy. That does appear to be available through invite only. Be sure to keep checking back as you may find that you’re accepted! Hoping you can sign up soon! 🀞❀️
