Money-back with Reload
With Prime Reload, you can get 2 percent back on purchases when you first load funds into your Amazon balance using a debit card that is attached to a checking account.
In other words, you supply the money for your own Amazon gift card, which you then use to purchase items. For example, you could load $500 into an Amazon gift card using the Reload program and then receive a gift card worth $510. During the holidays, you’ll be using the Amazon Prime benefit of free shipping like crazy. them and ship the rest to Amazon using a prepaid label at no additional cost.
Free shipping at other sites, too
One of Amazon Prime’s siren calls has always been free shipping, but it’s not restricted to just Amazon.com. Amazon acquired deal-of-the-day site Woot in 2010. Prime’s free standard shipping extends to Woot purchases.
Fashionistas will be happy to learn Shopbop is part of the free Prime shipping family, and you get free returns, too. You can get your designer brand fix and free Amazon shipping through East Dane, which is similar to Shopbop, but focused on men’s fashion. Among Woot, ShopBop and East Dane, your online shopping horizons with bonus shipping perks have just expanded.
