I just had a banner ad pop up for £5 credit when I spend £15. And when I clicked on it, it says "activate". However, the banner ad says "by Nov 29", but doesn't say when the start date is/was. And when I click on the "T&Cs" link, it doesn't lead to the T&C's. So the offer is a little bit unclear. But I do have a couple of UK books I've been wanting, that don't go on sale like ever, so I'm still happy to see the offer.

@Little.Egret's link below is still good.

I happened to be buying Kindle ebooks today.
I can't see how this "offer" works.
I don't see any refund.

Unfortunately, the link to the T&Cs seems to be broken (or at least it is for me). But the way these "Buy XXX Get YYY" offers usually work is that you buy at least XXX of Kindle ebooks during the specified period, and then shortly thereafter a credit appears in your account, which you can then use on FUTURE purchases of ebooks. So it's not an immediate discount.

In the past there has been a lot of discussion about whether the discount is worth it or not. Without opening up all of that discussion again, I'll just say that YMMV. IMO, if you buy enough Kindle e-books that both earning and using the credit won't be an issue, it's nice to get any discount at all. (This is me usually .) But also IMO, if you end up having to go through contortions to find enough books you want to buy to make up the XXX amount, and then more contortions to find enough more books to use the YYY credit on, then you may want to think it through a bit.

And although for most folks, the credit seems to appear pretty quickly after you spend the XXX, sometimes folks don't get the credit. So it's a good idea to take screenshots of the offer, and then the screen that shows you activated it, in case you have to contact customer service to get it.

Hope this helps!

I only buy what I want to buy and regard such offers as a sort of Loyalty Bonus.
I'd only buy multipack for a discount at the supermarket or fuel store if it was a quantity I'd buy anyway. I was annoyed this week the the supermarket only had Stout (Guinness, Murphy, Beamish) in multipacks and we only use part of one can to make the Christmas puddings!

Thanks sufue

Occasionally, mysteriously, I've been offered a discount on a Kindle eBook with some comment due to my purchases, yet the discount isn't on the List I have of kindle ebooks I might buy or on any other ebook I'm looking at. Strange company.

Well it worked, I got my credit but in a mysterious way.

I had spent £12.53 on 5 books. The credit was shown on my next book £5.69 => £0.69

I think it might have started earlier than it appeared, because I also got my credit before I thought I had earned it. Who knows...at least I got it.

And Amazon UK seems to be at it again - I just activated a buy £15, get £5 offer with dates of Jan 16 - Jan 31. Which seems slightly odd since this is Jan 26, which is sort of late in the game. But since they indicate (as usual) in the T&Cs that you can activate any time during the offer period, I don't know that it matters.

Oh yeah, and mine showed up as a banner ad - I didn't get an email.

Here are the FAQ for the offer:

Spoiler:
Quote:
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I get my Kindle Book credit?
Prime customers receive their Kindle Book credit after activating the offer and spending £15 or more on any one or more Kindle Books between January 16, 2023 to January 31, 2023 (in one or multiple transactions). You must activate your offer by clicking on the marketing banners any time during the offer period in order for your purchases to count.

What if I haven't activated the offer?
If you have landed on this page without clicking on the offer email or offer push notification sent by us directly to you or without clicking on the offer banner on Amazon.co.uk, please click here - Get offer, wait for this page to reload and start shopping for Kindle Books.

Which Kindle Books count towards the offer?
Any Kindle Book that you purchase on Amazon.co.uk during the offer period will count, including Kindle Book gift orders, bulk Kindle Book orders, and pre-orders that are fulfilled during the offer period. Activation can occur at any time during the offer period. Pre-orders that are fulfilled outside of the offer period are excluded from this offer.

When is the offer period?
The offer period is between January 16, 2023 to January 31, 2023.

When do I get my credit?
Your credit will be automatically applied to your account within 4 days after spending the specified amount on any one or more Kindle Books. We will notify you via email once your credit has been applied to your account.

How do I use my Kindle Book credit?
Your £5 Kindle Book credit is automatically redeemed on your next Kindle Book purchase. Any Kindle Book sold on Amazon.co.uk is eligible for this credit.

When does my Kindle Book credit expire?
Your Kindle Book credit expires at 11.59 PM (BST) on March 2, 2022.

And here are the T&Cs:

Spoiler:
Quote:

• Use of the promotional credit requires an Amazon.co.uk account and acceptance of the Amazon Kindle Store Terms of Use.
• Purchaser will be responsible for the final price of an Kindle Book after the promotional credit is applied to that title.

• Unlike Amazon.co.uk Gift Cards, you will not be able to view any unused promotional codes or promotional rewards in the Your Account section of www.amazon.co.uk.

And if you want to try the link to the "Activation Page", no idea if it's general, or tied to me being logged in, but here you go: https://www.amazon.co.uk/b?node=21579382031

Have fun everyone!

Oh good, nice to know it wasn't tied only to me. Although I suspect that one would still need to be "eligible" based on whatever inscrutable unexplainable irrational algorithms Amazon has going...
