We interrupt this Prime Day extravaganza to tell you about a special cash offer. While you’re busy shopping for the best deals on tech products, fall fashion, home goods and more, Amazon is giving away money to anyone who purchases a gift card.
This special Amazon Prime Day gift card deal is only for Amazon Prime members—and (like Daffy Duck said when he blew himself up) you can only do it once.
If you’re not a member, sign up for a free 30-day trial and you can take advantage. Here’s the lowdown:
When you buy a gift card of $40 anytime during Prime Day (the two-day event lasts through Wednesday, October 14), you will get $10 more on that card if you use the code ‘GC20PRIME’ at checkout. This works for digital gift cards as well as physical ones.
This means you can stash away a gift card for 50 bucks that you paid only $40 for, and give it to some lucky recipient as a birthday or holiday gift. Or you can send a digital gift right now that makes you look like a big spender. Or—and we like this option best—you can buy yourself a gift card and use it now or later on a great Amazon deal—increasing your buying power by 25 percent.
But choose wisely. This amazing free-money offer is, as we mentioned, limited to one per customer.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled Prime Day activities.
