All Things Amazon

I may possibly be addicted to Amazon. I shop on there daily and I talk about it often throughout my site. So, I figured I would make this page for anything relating to Amazon. I actually have more to add here, so please check for updates.

Amazon Prime

A Prime subscription offers fast and free shipping. It also includes other perks as well like music, photo storage, and their video service. You can add members of your household to your account to share some of these benefits.

If you’re a student or recipient of Medicaid or EBT, you may be eligible to get it at a reduced rate. See their site for more details.

If you want to skip paying for Prime, keep your orders over $25 and you will get free shipping.

Amazon Discounts

  • Amazon Coupons

Amazon offers coupons on a lot of items. They can be found right under the price if there is one available. These can also be used along with discount codes.

  • Amazon Promotional Codes

These codes are entered at checkout and can discount up to 100% off. There are several Amazon Affiliates that share them in Facebook groups, on Telegram, etc. There may thousands of other people also viewing the codes, so you have to be really quick when checking out.

  • Amazon Treasure Truck

Amazon has a program called Treasure Truck. When you sign up, they will send you a daily text offering a new item at a discounted rate. You can click the link to see if it’s still available, then have it shipped. For more information, see their site and my blog post.

  • Amazon Woot!

Amazon has a daily deals site called Woot! They have a few items that are discounted until they run out.

Cash Back

  • Late Delivery Credit With Paribus

Amazon has a policy that if a package is late, you may be able to get a courtesy credit. Not every package is eligible. I have found the best way to tell is to have Paribus (by Capital One) linked to my Amazon profile. It’s a free service that will scan your deliveries, notify you, and then help to get a credit. You can even do this if you have Prime. I’ve tried others, but they were not at all reliable. I was requesting credits on things that didn’t fall into their guidelines.

It’s a very simple process. Paribus will send an email when they have detected a late delivery that you may be eligible for compensation from Amazon. When you click the link in the email, it takes you to their site. There will be a pop up with the steps, along with the order number, and a pre-written message for you to use in chat. It takes less than a minute to do this.

The credit does not go on your Amazon gift card balance. It will show up in your cart when you place a future eligible order. You’ll see it in the payment section with a checkbox for you to choose to use it or not.

  • Cash Back Cards

Always try to use any payment cards that will give you cash back.

  • Scan Receipts

You can get cash back from your e-receipts from a few different apps. Just connect your account and click scan every so often to obtain your points towards cash back. See Scan Receipts for more information.

Amazon Gift Cards

  • Reload Gift Card Bonus

Sometimes Amazon runs specials that will give you money back for reloading your gift card with a specified amount. For example, you may get $10 for loading $100.

  • Buy Discounted Gift Cards

There’s a few sites you can get discounted Amazon gift cards. I will be adding more information about these soon.

  • Earn FREE Gift Cards

There are a bunch of ways to get free Amazon gift cards. A few are listed throughout the Smile, Sparkle, Save section. You can start with the Extra Money page.

Get Paid By Amazon

  • Amazon Mechanical Turk (mTurk)

mTurk consists of mostly microtasks that you do for Amazon. This may include surveys, extracting receipt information, provide search results, pulling data from a site, rate pics, and so on.

When you first start, you only qualify for lower paid tasks that will increase over time. I’ve seen some pretty decent income reports from people doing this.


  • Amazon Smile!

Shop at and they’ll donate a percentage of your eligible purchases to your favorite charity. There is no extra cost and there are several charities to choose from.
