Amazon Prime Day is one of the biggest deals events of the year for Prime subscribers, and though the annual sale always brings hefty discounts on practically anything you’d want to buy, the company is also throwing free Amazon credit at shoppers to help sweeten the deals even further. There are two main ways to claim free Amazon credit ahead of Prime Day, each of which will get you $10 to spend during the sale (so $20 total)–and neither involves signing up for Amazon’s credit card. Let’s get into it: Here’s how you can claim free Amazon credit ahead of Prime Day 2021.
Shop small businesses on Amazon
Just like last year, Amazon is highlighting small businesses ahead of Prime Day and urging users to “shop local” (despite the fact that you’re still buying on Amazon and benefiting a massive corporation, of course). Between June 7 and June 20, when you spend at least $10 on products from small businesses on Amazon, you will receive $10 back. You’ll know you’ve qualified when you receive a confirmation email notifying you that credit has been added to your account. You can then spend that $10 credit on Prime Day from June 21 to 22. This deal is exclusive to Prime members.
The qualifying small business offers span several major categories, including electronics, pet supplies, home & kitchen, and even handmade items. You can also shop by region–so if you live in the Northeast United States and want to support “local” sellers, you can browse products specifically made in that region.
