There is currently a promotion for targeted Amazon.com accounts where if you purchase a $50 gift card you’ll receive a a free $10 promotion code to use at Amazon at a future time.
Via Slickdeals, there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason on who is eligible. You’ll need to sign onto your Amazon account, click this link, and either you’ll see that you are eligible or a notice saying “Unfortunately, you are not eligible for this offer.”
If you are eligible and shop at Amazon, this is a great offer! Essentially all you need to do is purchase a Amazon.com Gift Card by July 31, 2014, and by August 15, 2014 you’ll receive your $10 promotional code via email. You can then enter both the $50 gift card and $10 promotion code into your account to use for a future purchase (go to Your Account > Apply a Gift Card to Your Account). From similar previous promotions, purchasing two $25 gift cards will not work, it must be one $50 gift card. Additionally, from what I’ve read, I suggest taking a screen shot of the deal just in case you need to follow up with customer service.
Also, if you were targeted for the Amazon.com Amex Sync Offer then you can really maximize with this promotion! Some targeted offers included: Spend $20 and receive a $20 statement credit, Spend $40 and receive a $20 statement credit, and Spend $60 and receive a $30 statement credit. This can be combined with the $10 free gift card promo! That is if you were one of the lucky ones who were targeted for both promotions!
If you were not targeted, another way to purchase Amazon.com gift cards on the cheap is to take advantage of the Best Buy Amex Sync promotion I wrote about last week.
Were you targeted for this $10 free promotion credit deal? If so, what is your current Amazon membership? Enjoy!
