Hey Amazon shopper! This deal is expired, but you can still find out how to get free Amazon credits.

Have an Amazon account and wanna make an easy $5? Of course you do.

If you’ve never used Amazon’s free Amazon Cash service before, listen up! This free $5 Amazon credit is too easy to pass up.


Load at least $20 into your Amazon Balance with Amazon Cash and get a $5 credit instantly.

Amazon Cash is 100% free and an easy alternative to using a credit or debit card online for Amazon.com purchases. If you’ve never used Amazon Cash before, all you have to do is go to a participating Amazon Cash location near you and load money into your existing Amazon account balance using a debit card or cash. The funds you load are available instantly to be used online at Amazon — and so is your free $5 Amazon credit.

And I repeat, Amazon Cash is completely free! There are no fees or taxes added on to the amount you load into your account, and the $5 promotion is like getting $5 for free!


Present your unique Amazon barcode or phone number to a cashier or kiosk to load your account.

CVS, Rite Aid, 7-Eleven, GameStop, Western Union, and Allpoint stores are featured Amazon Cash locations, but your local mom and pop shop may also be a spot to load money into your account.

Before heading into a location, go to the Amazon Cash page and get a barcode or confirm the phone number connected to your Amazon account. You’ll have to give one or the other to the cashier or kiosk along with the money you want loaded.


Get your free $5 Amazon credit until August 31.

When you go to the Amazon Cash page on your phone, you’ll notice an expiration date of May 31, 2020 for the first-time user promo. But that’s not accurate.

According to Amazon.com, first-time users must load at least $20 between June 15 and 11:59 pm PT on August 31, 2020 in order to get the free money. (Check out the screenshot above where I loaded $20 on June 20 — the $5 promo still works!)

You’ll have until September 30 to use your $5 credit.
