Deal: Want free money from Amazon? Buy gift cards

There's a bit of fine print to consider, but this is a great deal nonetheless.

Amazon gift card deal

For a limited time, Amazon gives you free credit if you buy at least $50 worth of Amazon gift cards. There’s a bit of fine print, but this is a great deal if you want some free money for your selflessness.

You don’t get a huge chunk of credit — $15 is what you get when you use coupon code 19GIFTCARD at checkout, but that can get you anything from a portable battery to a decent pair of earbuds. You can also use the credit to knock some money off a more expensive purchase.

Unfortunately, those who’ve purchased an Amazon gift card from Amazon’s website are ineligible for this deal. If you purchased an Amazon gift card from a physical store, you’re in the clear.

Finally, purchasing a gift card from Amazon’s website means you can only use that gift card for that country. That means a gift card purchased in the Amazon U.S. website can’t be used in the Amazon Canada website, for example.

It might seem like a hassle, but getting this deal is anything but. You can choose from many designs, send gift cards through email, text messages, or a messaging platform, enter any dollar amount, and have gift cards delivered up to a year from their purchase dates.
