Score easy Amazon Prime Day credits with these genius ideas!

Amazon Prime Day is coming! 📦

Amazon Prime Day is July 12th through the 13th and we’re sharing tons of smart and easy ways you can earn over $200 in Amazon Prime Day credits towards your purchases!

Make sure to bookmark our Amazon Prime Day page for all the best deals in 2022!

Not an Amazon Prime Member? Sign up for a FREE 30-day trial here!


Here’s how you can earn easy Amazon Prime Day Credits:


1. Submit a Happy Friday story for a chance at a $10 Amazon eGift Card.

Have a funny, hip, or unique frugal story to share?! Send your story to us via our Happy Friday page, and if we post your submission to the site, we’ll send you a $10 Amazon eGift card!

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 come July.


4. Amazon Prime members can score $12.50 with the purchase of an Amazon Gift Card or Amazon Reload of $50 or more.

While I’m usually not one to encourage people to get credit cards, it’s pretty enticing when Amazon is offering up a whopping $200! 😱 If you’re comfortable taking on a new credit card, you’ll instantly receive your $200 Amazon gift card if you’re approved for their Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card and you’ll be able to earn money back with every purchase which can really add up over time. Not a Prime member? You’ll get $50 if you’re approved for their Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card. *Note this offer may vary by account. 

Plus, with your new card, you’ll receive 5% back at Amazon and Whole Foods Market with an eligible Prime membership, 2% back at participating restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores, and 1% back on utilities, rideshare, and all other purchases. Even cooler, for a limited time, you can even score 10% BACK on select eligible purchases. Best of all, there’s no annual credit card fee. 🤩


6. Become a member of the Amazon Shopper Panel to score free Amazon cash.

We’re super excited about the Amazon Shopper Panel app which started last year and once you get started, you have the opportunity to earn rewards and keep them coming month after month.

There are 2 ways to earn cash to go toward your Amazon gift card balance:

  • Take the available surveys. Your credits will automatically rack up in your Amazon Shopper Panel account.
  • Download your receipts for purchases made outside of Amazon and once you’ve reached 10 receipts, you’ll earn $10!

Just keep in mind you do have to make purchases in order to receive the $10 rewards and if you do not reach that minimum you won’t receive the monthly credit. Additionally, all rewards are credited to your Amazon account within the first 48 hours of each month, so you’ll want to get started NOW in order to receive and use them in time for Prime Day.


7. Earn up to $10 when you buy a Lightyear movie ticket or eligible merch through Atom.

Have a Lightyear fan at home? Get a $5 Prime Day credit when you buy a Lightyear movie ticket through Atom AND a $5 Prime Day credit when you purchase just one of the eligible Lightyear merch via Amazon.com. That means if you do both you’ll earn $10 total! 👏🏻 Just be lightning fast as this is a limited-time offer and only while supplies last.

Note that you’ll receive an e-mail from Amazon that indicates the dollar amount of the promotional credit. The e-mail will also provide instructions on how to redeem the promotional credit.


8. Buy a ticket to see the new Elvis movie and score a $5 Amazon credit.

Now through July 13th, Amazon is also offering a FREE $10 Prime Day Credit when you activate your Stampcard and complete all four (easy) activities. The promotional credit will automatically appear in your Amazon account within 24 hours of successfully completing your Stampcard to use any time during the next year or you can save it to use for Prime Day.

  1. Erin

    Anyone else having an issue with the prime video stamp on their stamp card? I have watched multiple videos, more than 48hrs and it never updates

    • Vicky

      Yes, I’m not getting that stamp either. 🙁

    • **Lisa**

      Yes! I’ve watched multiple things on multiple devices for days now. Still no stamp.

      • Erin

        Well, I am glad I am not the only one. I will wait a few more days and contact Amazon to manually add the credit if need be.

    • BlueWaterGirl

      I watched a movie a few days ago and got my stamp like 36 hours later. I logged in from my computer and streamed through my TV. Shouldn’t matter where as long as you’ve logged in, but just letting you know what I did.

    • Gscribble

      We watch a show on prime every single morning, and still nothing!

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Darn! So sorry about the issues, Gscribble! I was able to click back through an email I received from Amazon about the Stampcard for new stamps to show up in my account. You could also try to contact Customer Service – just scroll down on Amazon’s page, and click “Help.” Hope this is helpful! ❤️

    • Wendy Harter

      I watched from my phone and it went through. I was having trouble on tv’s as well

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        YAY! Thanks so much for sharing that helpful tip, Wendy! So happy it worked for you! 💞

    • Susanne

      Maybe you need to start the video through the link from the stamp card? rather than just watch it on a TV?

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for the helpful suggestion, Susanne! 🥰

  2. hip2trade

    I browsed the ebook area and didn’t read anything. Received the stamp card.

  3. Eva

    I received my credit immediately after completing the stamp card. I’ve been using the app on my iPhone. I didn’t even actually read the book I borrowed, I just clicked on “read now” and it said the book was sent to my Kindle account.

  4. Vicky

    I did receive the ebook stamp. No problem there. The problem is with the video stamp.

  5. Vicky

    Haha, I just went back and checked and the stamp was finally there. Hope everyone else got theirs too!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      YAY! So happy to hear it came through for you, Vicky! Happy shopping! ❤️

  6. txhrc4

    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. 🤔

  7. jolysh

    For proctor and gamble can the $75 purchase be made using subscribe and save or do you have to place a one-time order?

    • Alli (Hip Sidekick)

      You can definitely just make a one-time purchase to get the credit for your P&G purchase! Be sure to follow our link to make sure you’re buying the correct items to qualify for the promotional credit.

      • Susanne

        The P/G promotion is not available anymore for me.

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Darn! Thanks, Susanne! I’m seeing that now as well. We’ll get this updated. ❤️

  8. Joanne

    Yes but I’d rather take advantage of subscribe and save prices – can The $75 purchase be made using subscribe and save?

    • Alli (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, you sure can!

  9. Varsha darekar

    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! ❤️

  10. Jeanette---

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

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! Good luck! 🤞💕

  11. kalynn

    I have hit the link for the music stamp and listened to a dozen songs and still no music stamp.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry for the issues, kalynn! I was able to click back through the link in an email I received from Amazon about the Stamp Card for my new credits to apply. You could also try to reach out to their customer service to see if they can help get it applied. Hoping this is helpful! 💕

  12. Danielle O.

    For the credit card promo when does the $150 back start? I only see $100 back right now.

  13. Sarah

    Anyone having trouble with the stamp card $10 not showing in their account? All my stamps show completed, and I received an email saying “claim your credit,” but when I try to, it’s not there. The email said it would take an hour max, but it’s been days. 🧐 Of course, trying to get ahold of CS is like trying to walk in quicksand.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Sarah! I took advantage of this offer too, and noticed that the $10 credit was actually applied on my next Amazon purchase, rather than being loaded into my Amazon account as a gift card/balance. The next time I went to a product page, there was a “$10 off coupon” that could be applied to my purchase, which happened to be this credit. Hope this is helpful! 💞

    • No

      Me too , I completed it at least 2 weeks ago and still nothing in my account

  14. Joe

    Only see $100 bonus for CC signup

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Thanks so much for letting us know, we’ve added a note to the post. 💞

  15. Lisa

    for the $12.50 promotional credit with the purchase of a gift card, it has to be a reload, not an Amazon gift card.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for commenting, Lisa! I still find it to list ” Gift Card purchase or Amazon Reload” for that offer as I click through to the details. Hoping that helps! ❤️

  16. Shmoopie99

    I did the gift card purchase yesterday and didn’t get my credit. After chatting and then calling, they informed me I could only get the credit by doing a reload. Had to cancel my gift card purchase.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO sorry for any confusion. That promotion begins on July 12th. You should be able to grab it then. 💕🥰

      • Shmoopie99

        Thank you for the clarification! And thank you for all you and the team do for us 🙂

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re SO very welcome! Glad to help! Thank YOU for the sweet comment. 🥰

  17. Mama6

    The Amazon stamp card is easy peasey 🙂

  18. yolk

    Hi, I see some post about the $12.50 promo credit for the gift card reload purchase. Does this have to be on the day of on the 12th? I tried now and put the promo code in the checkout page but it says that the promo code is not valid. How are others getting this deal?

    • Chelsey (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! Yes, this offer will start on the 12th, if you ordered now, you will not receive the credit.

  19. Peaches

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

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      ME TOO! 💞🙌

  20. Dawn

    I got the free 4 month offer for Amazon Prime Music (email from them and on my account got a popup) BUT when I click on the promo link it only gives me a 30-day trial and not the 4 months. Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, are you using a mobile device? If so, maybe switch to desktop view or log out and back into your account. Hoping that might do the trick!

      • chickie00

        Do you have to do the trial to listen to music? Otherwise, every time I click on “Listen Now”, it gives me an error, and I can’t get that stamp. 🙁

        • chickie00

          Jessica answered below too – I got it!! 🙂

  21. Lisa C

    Curious if anyone is having trouble with the $12.50 gift card promo today. It is not working for me.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Sorry for the issues. Are you using a mobile device? If so, maybe switch to desktop view. Hoping that does the trick!

  22. Kay

    For the $12.50 offer, I tried with egiftcard purchase and with reload but still not working. Getting this message: the promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase. As for the stamp, our Prime account is under my husband’s name. For me to get a stamp for listening to music, I think I had to log in through his account.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Kay! For the $12.50 offer, are you using a mobile device? That one seems to work best for most when using a desktop. Hoping this helps!

      • Beccah

        The $12.50 is not working for me either. I’ve tried on mobile or desktop and I tried reload and new purchase. Nothing but promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase

        • Philnnyc

          I had the same issue last time. Note on the “1st time…” .
          I then used my the sub log on, click the offer to purchase a gc and it cleared.
          So if you had receive and used the offer before on gc purchase then your email log on won’t get the offer.

          Try and see if reload will trigger it on your log on. If not log on to one of the sub account and try.

  23. Philnnyc

    I receive mine pretty quickly, Stream something in the evening and it was clear my next morning.

  24. chickie00

    I can not get the MUSIC STAMP to work. For over 24 hours now I’ve been trying to click on the link to listen to music (“listen now”) and it keeps telling me, “We are experiencing an error”. Anyone else having this issue? :/

    Also, how fast have y’all gotten the Video Stamp? Has it really taken the 48 hours to show up/credit? I’m afraid I may not even be able to get all 4 stamps in time! Even though I started yesterday and tried to do all the things. 🙁

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry for the trouble! You might have luck switching to a different internet browser, or to a desktop if you are using a mobile device. I also had luck clicking through the email from Amazon about the Stampcard. Hoping this does the trick! 🤞💗

  25. chickie00

    Oh yay! THANKS! I tried it from my laptop, & that worked right away!
    Now, here’s hoping the movie one credits any day now… lol

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

  26. yolk

    Has anyone signed up and got approved for the Affirm $25 credit for order of $100 or more? I placed my order and was approved but have not gotten any email regarding this yet even almost after 24 hrs. Supposedly it should’ve arrived within 2 hours or so.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Sorry for any issues! Maybe try reaching out to customer service to look into that for you. Hoping they can help! ❤️
