Amazon really, really wants you to buy something from it this Prime Day. In fact, the company is handing out free money in the form of Amazon credits if you make a few cheap Amazon purchases right now.
The best part is that many of these can be simple, everyday purchases you would probably make anyway.
It's not uncommon for Amazon to offer freebies, but this is the first time we're seeing so many of them. In total, members can score up to $175 in Amazon credits. So if you're planning on buying at least one item on Prime Day — make sure you take advantage of these freebies below. There's just one catch — most of these credits must be used before Prime Day deals end. So get these credits while you still can!
As a reminder, these deals are for Prime members only. (You can check on the status of your credits via this Amazon link (opens in new tab)).
