Free $5 Amazon.com Credit

Free $5 Amazon.com Credit

Amazon is just full of crazy offers right now. First it was doling out $10 for basically giving your friends free Amazon Prime accounts and now it’s a free $5 Amazon gift card in exchange for sending your friends a birthday gift on Facebook, which costs as little as $1.

Here’s how it works.1

  • Head over to Amazon and connect your Facebook account.
  • Search for a friend with a birthday before September 22 and send them a $1 Amazon gift.
  • Pay for the gift.
  • Your $5 credit will be applied to your account between Sept. 22-27.

It’s worth noting the credit will expire on Sept. 30, so you don’t have much time to spend it. For me the tricky part here was finding a friend with a birthday before Sept. 22. I ended up using my dummy Facebook account, but I’m sure you’re more popular than me and have more friends to choose from.

  1. Here’s the full list of terms and conditions too. []

    Then your friends ask why you were so cheap as to send them a measly $1 gift card. :P

    Thanks for this!

    HAHA yeh, you are right Piquebu.
    “Gee, thanks a lot for the gigantic $1 gift card my friend. I’ll try not to spend it all too quickly.” haha.

    September 22? Not fair. I want to be showered with $1 gifts too! I think this is Libra discrimination! Oh wait. I don’t have any facebook friends anyway. Feel free to just send me dollars.

    I like this offer because I just shared it with mutual friends of the birthday person to grown their gift. That way all the gifters (if first time) will receive the $5 credit and the birthday person will receive more than $1. Thanks for the info.
