Grubhub and Amazon gift cards will get a 25% bonus on Prime Day

There will be a ton of deals to shop during Amazon Prime Days, from electronics and beauty to Amazon’s own devices (some of which are already discounted). Also included in sales inventory? A ton of gift cards which will be reduced by up to 25%.

Ahead of Prime Day, we know that GrubHub and Amazon will definitely be offering discounted gift cards that you can buy for yourself or, you know, others. Other brands will be announced closer to or on the date of the savings event.

There is a good deal in there for Prime members who also buy Amazon gift cards (and why not you, since you clearly intend to buy from Amazon?). Here’s what happens: Prime members will receive $12.50 in promotional credit with a $50 Amazon gift card purchase, meaning you’ll accrue savings on your next fast-shipping order.

There are a few pitfalls here: Only one promotional credit is allowed per primary Prime email address, so you can’t, say, store $300 worth of cards and also get a ton of promotional credit. Other Notes: You must be a current Prime member to claim promotional credit and be a first-time gift card buyer or top up your balance. You will also want to click “Apply code to your account” on the day and enter the code”GCPRIME22in the box for gift cards and promotional codes. Two days later, you should see the credit in your account.

Whether you’re looking for birthday or thank you cards, or have specific errands to run, it’s a great way to save money on the purchases you intend to make anyway.
