Earn $10 in Amazon Credit With $20 In-Store Reload

Right now there is an interesting Amazon promo that can net you $10 in Amazon credit for essentially loading just $20 to your Amazon account balance. The catch? You have to load that $20 in a participating store such as a CVS Pharmacy or Game Stop via the “Amazon Cash” program as outlined on the link above.

I haven’t had a chance to do this quite yet, but after reading through the Slickdeals threads, it seems that despite the name of the program, you don’t actually have to pay with cash and can instead pay with a credit card. When loading the money in the retail store, you have to scan a Amazon bar code specific to your Amazon account that you can either print at home or display on your phone. Once you do this to load the $20 to your Amazon account, you will get a $10 promotional Amazon credit to use by August 31, 2017. That promotional credit won’t display in your Amazon gift card balance, but instead shows up at check-out when you put an eligible item in your basket that is sold by Amazon (as opposed to a third party seller).

To be eligible for the $10 in promotional credit, the Amazon Cash transaction must occur between June 12, 2017 and July 31, 2017.

  1. I didn’t know didn’t have to be cash, but it worked like a charm. I gave the CVS cashier a $20 bill and it appeared almost immediately as a credit in my account. I spent it later that same day. It was a little difficult for the cashier’s wand to read the barcode from my phone, but she got it done. I was the first person she’d seen with the barcode.

  2. I followed the steps you outlined here and got the $10 promo at CVS today and bought just enough stuff I needed anyway at Amazon to qualify for the $25 free shipping. I forgot about using the Freedom card though as Alex mentioned above. That cost me a few hundred points that I sure hate missing out on!

  3. Deal didn’t work with a credit card at my local CVS. This one is YMMV with credit. I’ll try another CVS or Gamestop. I wish national store chains would program their cash registers consistently.
