you go to buy a gift card, and when you enter your own email, it prompts to you to refill your balance instead. that's ridiculous. it should be spelled out up front that you *have* to buy a gift card. there should be a link on the page with the offer to buy a gift card. AND it shouldn't try to divert you away from it.
Don't bother. It's not good for third-party sellers and that's all that Amazon has become. I just spent 2 hours trying to use my $5 "credit" and it won't apply to anything. And yes, I did receive the email that said the $5 credit has been applied to my account, but as I said, it's not good on anything. Oh well. I would have used the $25 sooner or later anyway, and it was like getting a free cash advance. So there's that.
eGift Card also works!
Not for reloading your balance.
Only work for redeeming a new Gift Card or eGift Card.
You have to buy it before Amazon Prime Day ended at 11:59:59 p.m. (PT),
buy you have time to redeem it until September 1, 2019 11:59:59 p.m. (PT).
So, do not need to worry. If it doesn't arrive by tomorrow, it is still fine.
***** However, limit one promotional credit per Amazon.com Prime account.
Read the fine print. If you buy a $25 GC to be mailed to you, and it doesn't arrive before tomorrow, it doesn't qualify.
Just spoke with an Amazon rep. You must purchase at minimum a $25 gift card. Re-filling your Amazon balance will not work.
Anybody know if this still applies if you just reload your account with $25? Or do you actually need to buy a gift card?
