1. Submit a Happy Friday idea for a chance at a $10 Amazon eGift Card.
Share a frugal living tip with us via our Happy Friday series, and if we post your submission to the site, we’ll send you a $10 Amazon eGift card! Check out these tips to helping your chances of having your submission picked.
2. Consolidate prepaid cards onto one Amazon gift card.
If you have an assortment of prepaid cards in varying amounts, use them to reload your Amazon Gift Card, and combine the varying values to spend all in one place.
To do this, just head over to Amazon’s gift card reload page and type in whatever remaining balance you have left on your card in the “$ Enter an Amount” 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
3. Score a $10 bonus when you reload $100 or more on an Amazon gift card.
First-time gift card reloaders can earn a $10 bonus when adding $100 or more to an Amazon gift card connected with your Amazon account. Head over to their gift card offers page to see if you’re eligible.
4. Earn another easy $10 credit for Prime Day just by visiting Amazon Assistant.
Simply visit Amazon Assistant to redeem this special offer! For new Amazon Assistant customers, simply head here to install Amazon Assistant and click on the ‘a’ icon in your browser. You will earn a $10 credit by visiting Amazon Assistant five times within 14 days.

5. Redeem loose change at Coinstar for Amazon gift cards and earn free $5 Amazon credit.
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 June.
6. Use the Amazon App for the first time and get $10 in credit.
Newbies to the Amazon app can earn $10 just for signing into the Amazon app for the first time! In fact, we’re keeping our eyes peeled for possible future deals similar to what they had last year when you could earn $10 for making an in-app purchase or $5 just for using the camera or Alexa features in the app! Sweet!
7. Amazon Prime members can score $10 when they place an eGift card purchase of $40 or more.
For a limited time and while supplies last, dash on over to Amazon where Prime members can score a FREE $10 promotional credit when you buy a $40 Amazon eGift Card and use promo code GIFTFORPD21 at checkout!
Here’s how to get this deal: Head here and click on ‘Apply Code To Your Account’ Scroll down and choose from one of the gift card options Choose a design and enter $40 Enter your e-mail address as the recipient During checkout, the promotional code should automatically be added to your cart, however, if you do not see this message, use promo code GIFTFORPD21 (FREE $10 credit) Final cost $40 + get a FREE $10 Amazon credit! *Your $10 credit will be automatically applied to your account and emailed you to within 2 days after placing your order.
8. Potentially receive $5 when you send $50 in Amazon gift cards.
Select Amazon customers may be qualified to score a $5 promotion credit when you send at least $50 in Amazon gift cards by text messages in a single day. Just don’t wait until the day of Prime Day because your $5 promo could take up to 3 days before you receive it via email.
9. Score $50 when you sign up for a new Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature card.
While I’m not one to encourage people to get credit cards, it’s pretty enticing when Amazon is offering up a $50! If you’re comfortable taking on a new credit card, you’ll receive a $100 Amazon gift card instantly if you’re approved for their Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature card!
Plus, you’ll be able to earn money back which can really add up over time and could be perfect for taking advantage of all your favorite Amazon Prime Day deals! 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. Best of all, there’s no annual credit card fee.
10. Check your Verizon Rewards for up to $5 on Amazon.
If you’re already a Verizon customer, you could be eligible for their monthly Verizon Rewards. Come June 1st, you can opt to receive your monthly reward by choosing an Amazon gift card worth up to $5!
Here’s how you claim your monthly reward:
- Head to your Verizon app and login
- Click “Verizon Up”
- Scroll to your monthly rewards and click “Gift Cards”
- View your rewards
- Click “Use now”
- Select Amazon
- Enter your email and send
- From your email, you’ll be able to add it to your Amazon gift card balance to use on your next purchase
11. Become a member of the Amazon Shopper Panel to score free Amazon cash.
Many of our readers are excited about the Amazon Shopper Panel app! In fact, so were we! While it does state it’s an invitation-only program and only a limited number of people can participate, my Hip sidekick, Amber tried it out and after entering her income, gender, and age range – she was in and immediately earned $0.25 for taking her first survey! Sure, that’s not much, but once you get started you have the opportunity to earn even more and keep the rewards coming month after month.
There are 2 ways to earn cash to go towards 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 come June!
