Items you’re currently coveting on Amazon Prime Day, in random order: a new (and highly discounted) pair of leggings, an air fryer that practically guarantees a better French fry and this super-chic bar cart (hello, it’s almost 50 percent off).
But hold your horses because the best deal of all on Amazon Prime Day might come as a shocker: It’s actually an Amazon gift card. But you have to spend at least $40 to cash in on the "free" money that comes with it.
Here’s how it works: Yes, you have to spend money to make money, but if you’re a Prime member, you will get a $10 promotional credit when you buy an Amazon gift card worth $40 or more. To activate, you can either apply the savings to your account in advance or use the promo code GCPRIME2021 before you check out.
Either way, it’s $10 back in your pocket that you can apply to *any* Amazon purchase at a later date. (Some have even reported that the credit appeared in their account so quickly, they were even able to apply the savings to their Prime Day purchase.)
