How to Get $40 in Free Amazon Credits Right Now

Photo by dennizn /

The holidays are approaching fast, and Amazon has several deals that can put a little extra purchasing power in your pocket.

Buy an Amazon gift card for the first time, in an amount of at least $50, and you will get a $15 promotional credit, Amazon announced recently. The offer is available until Dec. 20. The promotional credit itself expires Feb. 6, 2021.

If you use Amazon Reload to add a gift card balance to your Amazon account for the first time, loading at least $100, you will get a free $10 bonus, Amazon says. The deal is available until Dec. 31. Amazon does not specify when the bonus expires.

Give blood by Nov. 11, and the American Red Cross will offer its thanks in the form of a $5 Amazon gift card, which you will receive via email. You also will be entered into a drawing to win a $1,000 Amazon gift card. Find out more at the American Red Cross website.

Finally, you can get a $5 Amazon credit when you put at least $30 in coins into a Coinstar kiosk by Nov. 30 and elect to receive the money on an Amazon gift card. However, to qualify, this must be the first time you have redeemed coins for an gift card claim code at a Coinstar kiosk. The promotional credit expires Dec. 31.

Take advantage of all four of these offers, and that’s $40 in free Amazon credit in your pocket.

Once you have collected those free Amazon gift cards and credits, make sure you get the most out of them. To do so, read “9 Hidden Ways to Get More Out of Amazon” before you shop.

Of course, some Amazon items don’t require you to pay with a gift card — or anything else, for that matter. For more, check out “10 Things That Really Are Free on Amazon.”
