Amazon offers its customers a free $5 promo credit when you add $25 to your account balance using Amazon Cash..

Is this deal for me?

Amazon has rolled out another way for you to spend money online. With Amazon Cash, you can use actual cash to add money to your Amazon balance! Gone are the days of needing a credit card to shop on the site. Now all you have to do is visit one of 14 participating retailers, like Gamestop, CVS, Speedway and Boost Mobile, show them your Amazon Cash barcode and throw down your dollars.

Amazon Cash allows you to add between $15 and $500 per transaction to your Amazon balance. If you add $25 or more before December 16, Amazon will add an extra $5 on top of what you added to your account. This offer is only valid for first-time users of Amazon Cash.

Your Amazon Cash barcode can be texted to you so the store employee can scan it via your phone, or you can choose to print it out if using a phone isn't an option. The money you give to the employee afterwards will be immediately added to your Amazon balance.

The retailers currently supporting Amazon Cash include:

  • A Plus
  • Boost Mobile
