$5 Amazon credit for reloading gift card

You can get a $5 Amazon credit for reloading your gift card. Click below to see if you qualify. Once there you need to click button to qualify and then click another to reload your balance. I used my Amazon store card so I received 5% credit too!

Thanks! My Prime is going to expire at the end of the month, this should work perfectly.

But ... you would have gotten $5 for a $100 Amazon expenditure anyway when using your store card. So it's a wash--a Prime member with a store card isn't getting any advantage here for reloading at the minimum $100 level, and is losing money at the higher levels.

You sure? I think he got the normal 5% ($5) for buying the credit, then a bonus $5. So $10 total, right?

I got a $5 Amazon credit and spent it already - that's for this promotion. I will get a 5% credit on my Amazon store card balance after the current statement period is up. Every statement I get a 5% credit on my purchases for that period. Unless they don't allow it for gift card purchases - I will have to wait until I get my statement to know for sure.

It's 3%, not 5.

Quote:
3% Back: You will earn 3% back for each $1 eligible Net Purchases made at Amazon.com. 3% Back applies only to purchases made at Amazon.com (including digital downloads, Amazon.com Gift Cards, Amazon Fresh orders, Amazon Prime subscription, and items sold by third-party merchants through Amazon.com's marketplace).
That said, you're not gaining anything by purchasing the gift card (except in this case the $5 credit) if you are using it yourself for Amazon purchases.

Yes, but you'll "lose" that bonus $5 by using the gift card for your next $100 in purchases, so there's no advantage.

The Amazon Rewards card (Visa) is 3 percent for Amazon purchases. The Amazon store card is 3 percent for non-Prime members, 5 percent for Prime members.

6. Amazon Prime Members get 5% back (as a statement credit) on qualifying purchases made with their Amazon Prime Store Card, an upgrade from their existing Amazon.com Store Card.

It finally sunk in. I'm slow today. But I did get the $5 credit from the promotion at least.

Amazon and it's affiliates are always a surprise. You never know when the algorithms will shine their light from above and favor you.

Sure there is an advantage.
I'm going to renew Prime - it will cost me $100.
I can run it through a gift card first to earn the extra $5 + my rewards points or I can just use my rewards credit card and get rewards points.

I'm still spending the same $100 regardless of method I choose. There is no lost opportunity to earn rewards points, they just get earned sooner by loading the gift card.

I think Catlady was talking about me using my Amazon store card to purchase the gift card to get an extra 5%. Since my next $100 comes from the gift card I'm not getting the 5% from my store card so it's a wash. I just get the $5 credit.
