The clock is ticking and if you're still shopping for Mother's Day gifts Amazon is trying to make it a little easier. That is, if you're a Prime member. 

Through May 14, Prime members who purchase Amazon eGift cards valued at $50 or more will receive a free $5 Amazon promotional code. It's a minor credit, but it's essentially free money you can get from Amazon. Additionally, nothing's stopping you from purchasing the eGift card for yourself and pocketing the $50 card and $5 credit. (You can then use that to get mom a cooler Mother's Day gift).

Prime members who purchase $50 (or more) in Amazon eGift cards (in one order) can get a free $5 Amazon credit. This deal is valid through May 14 at 11:59 p.m. (PT) or while supplies last. It's a minor promo credit, but it's essentially free money you can get from Amazon. 

The deal is very easy to activate. Simply visit the Amazon Gift Cards page, purchase at least $50 worth of Amazon eGift cards, and you'll get a $5 promo code via e-mail. 

Be aware that you must be a Prime member to get this deal. Furthermore, the promotion works only once per account; if you buy $100 worth of eGift cards, you won't get $10 worth of credit, in other words.

If you're not already an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can try a free trial today; it's the only way to access a number of Amazon deals, including this one. Plus, you'll get access to Prime Day deals when they're available later this summer. Make sure to follow our Amazon Memorial Day sales coverage for the best Amazon deals this month. Otherwise, Amazon has released a new batch of Mother's Day sales you can shop below:

Amazon's largest Alexa-powered smart display packs a 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 display, dual 1.6-inch speakers, and a 5MP camera. It can be mounted on a wall or displayed on a compatible stand (not included). In our <a href="https://www.tomsguide.com/reviews/amazon-echo-show-15" data-link-merchant="tomsguide.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">Echo Show 15 review, we named it the best smart display for wall mounting. Unlike its smaller counterparts, the Echo Show 15 acts more like a smart home control center than a speaker, prioritizing screen size and interface over audio and video quality.
