If you're anything like me, you wait until December 23 to buy Christmas presents before panicking and scooping up a bunch of Amazon giftcards. Works like a charm. But with a little foresight this year, we can all score a free $5 Amazon giftcard for ourselves!
Now through October 31, new Amazon Mom members or those who pay for Amazon Prime will get a free $5 credit when they purchase at least $45 in giftcards. They come in packs, so what you're really buying is 3 $15 giftcards, which actually helps in spreading the gifts out.
Remember, Amazon Mom is free to join and you get three months of free 2-day Amazon Prime shipping when you first sign up as well.
