Prime Day Gift Card Deal Preview: Earn $12.50 Credit with $50 Amazon Gift Card

If it feels like Amazon Prime Day is a little later this year, you’re not wrong: For 2022, the mega-retailer moved it back a few weeks to July 12-13. In spite of the date change, they’re keeping one of last year’s best deals … and this year, they’ve even expanded it a bit.

If you’re planning to spend more than $50 on gift cards during this year’s Prime Day, you can earn a free $12.50 credit(Opens in a new window) for future purchases from Amazon or Amazon Digital. In addition, Prime Day deals are going to include up to 25% discounts on e-gift cards from dozens of retailers, which could mean (depending on your purchase) that this is free money on top of free money.

Sound good? We thought so. Here’s how to get it when Prime Day is live:

On July 12 or 13, if you’re a current Prime member, just spend $50 or more on qualifying e-Gift Cards from Amazon in a single purchase and use the promo code EGCPRIME22 in the “Gift Cards and Promotional Codes” box when you check out. This promotion is available only during the 48 hour Prime Day window, so while you’re stocking up on things for yourself, add holiday stocking stuffers to your card for others while you’re at it.

For comparison,  last year we saw a variety of offers that include $10 in free credit, and this year we expect to see more of the same. 

The credit expires on August 28, 2022, so make sure to make any additional purchases by then. You can also only earn one credit per Prime account.
