Happy Amazon Prime Day to all who celebrate.
Amazon’s two-day bonanza is underway, and there are some amazing deals out there. How about a pair of wireless Bose noise-canceling headphones for just $199? And that’s just the start of the savings.
But you can take it even further. Amazon has added a handful of ways to quickly earn some credits for your account, allowing you to stack credits with Amazon Prime Day discounts and save even more. Using some credit card points can also help you score massive discounts, too.
Check out all the ways you can stack your Prime Day savings.
Purchase a $40 Amazon gift card, get a $10 credit FREE
Planning on doing a bit of shopping for Prime Day? Through tomorrow (Oct. 14) or while supplies last, you’ll receive a free $10 credit with the purchase of a $40 Amazon gift card.
All types of Amazon gift cards qualify, whether you are buying an Amazon eGift card, a physical gift card, or a print at home card.
To take advantage of this deal, make sure to enter code GC20PRIME at checkout, and the $10 promotional credit will be applied to your account within two days. And you’ll have until Nov. 29, 2020, to use the credit.
Spend $10 at Whole Foods, Get $10 Off for Prime Day
Amazon owns Whole Foods, and that means you can save even bigger on Prime Day during your next grocery run. Spend at least $10 at Whole Foods (in-store or online) by Oct. 14, and you’ll get a $10 credit to use during Prime Day. Learn more here!
Get up to $20 in Credits Shopping through the Amazon App!
Not everyone will be eligible for this one, but it’s a big one.
Make your first purchase through the Amazon smartphone app (rather than online), and you can earn a $10 credit on your purchase of $20 or more during Prime Day. And you may even be able to do it twice. Check to see if you’re eligible!
Watch a Prime Video, Get $5 Off
Amazon Prime members get Amazon Prime Video for free. And if you log into your account and watch just one video, you may get a $5 credit!
It’s unclear whether this particular credit is targeted to new users or if it’s universal.
Shop at Physical Amazon Stores to Earn Much More!
Amazon has a handful of brick-and-mortar locations scattered across the U.S. There are Amazon Fresh stores, Amazon Go, Amazon Books, and more. If you’ve got one of these locations nearby, you can:
- Earn a $10 credit after spending $10 at an Amazon Go store.
- Spend $10 at an Amazon Books or Amazon Pop-Up store, earn a $10 credit for Prime Day
- Earn another $10 credit after spending $10 or more at an Amazon 4-Star location.
- Stop into an Amazon Fresh store and spend at least $10 to earn yet another $10 credit for Prime Day.
Stack with Credit Card Offers to Save More
American Express, Chase, and Capital One have ongoing promos allowing you to save even more at Amazon by applying just a single credit card point to your purchase.

Use the Right Credit Cards
Make the most of your purchases on Amazon Prime Day by using the right card.
And right now, we feel there is no better option for making Amazon purchases than the Chase Freedom Unlimited Card. Depending on when you applied for the card, you could earn as much as 3% cashback on your first $20,000 of spending for the first year of card membership. Otherwise, you’ll earn a solid 1.5% cashback. And best of all, the card has no annual fee.
If you hold the Chase Freedom Unlimited card in conjunction with either the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card or Chase Sapphire Reserve card, you can transfer the cashback you earn into Chase Ultimate Rewards points. That’s why we always suggest pairing a Chase Freedom Card along with your Sapphire Card.

Another great option for your Amazon Prime Day spending is the Blue Business Plus Credit Card from American Express. The card also does not have an annual fee and earns 2x Membership Rewards points for every dollar you spend up to $50,000 annually. It earns 1x point per dollar after that.
