With Prime Day rumored to occur in June this year, just a bit earlier than usual, it's a smart idea to make sure you're prepared for Amazon's biggest sale of the year before all the best Prime Day deals begin rolling in. Obviously, if you're not a Prime member already, now's the time to start a free 30-day trial so you're ready for the sale when it hits next month, but that's not the only way you can make sure you're ready for the big event.

For a limited time, Amazon is offering customers a $15 promotional credit when you purchase $50 or more worth of Amazon gift cards and use promo code GIFTCARD2021 during checkout. Whether you decide to send the gift card to a friend, family member, or even to yourself, this deal isn't worth skipping out on. There's just one catch — only customers who have never purchased an Amazon gift card on Amazon's website before are eligible for this offer.

Amazon Gift Card with $15 Amazon Credit

Send an Amazon gift card to a friend or family member — or even to yourself — and Amazon will give you an extra $15 to spend at your leisure when you use the following promo code at checkout.

$50.00 $65.00 $15 off

With coupon: GIFTCARD2021

To score your $15 promotional credit at Amazon, you'll need to purchase at least $50 in Amazon gift cards in a single order by June 28. Once you reach checkout and use promo code GIFTCARD2021, you should see a notice from Amazon either congratulating you for earning a $15 credit or denying you of the opportunity. This is an easy way to see if you're eligible for the offer without checking out, though you can also visit this offer page at Amazon to see if you're eligible without going through all of those steps.

After you've completed checkout, your $15 promo credit will be applied to your account within three days after the gift card has been sent. Amazon Prime Day is not too far away at this point, so be sure you're ready for the big sale and have an active Prime membership before it begins. You can start a free 30-day trial now to get in on Prime's perks early if you're not a member already and check out our Prime Day guide for more info on the two-day sale.
