Today is Amazon Prime Day, and while not all of the deals are super exciting, there are some winners to be found for those with an Amazon Prime Membership. This is especially true if you are interested in some new Amazon products, such as tablets!Barclaycard Arrival® Plus World Elite Mastercard®

Stack Deals to Purchase Amazon Tablets From $9.99 + One Membership Reward Point

Some of the Amazon Prime Day deals end up being even better than expected for reasons I can’t fully explain. For example, Amazon lists the normal price of a base level Fire 7 tablet at $49.99 with a Prime Day offering of $29.99. However, the final price in my cart is just $9.99 plus tax. That’s right, you can purchase a new tablet for $9.99 plus tax. This is exactly how you can easily afford to outfit your family with tablets to use on the airplane without stressing if someone loses or breaks one.

If you want slightly pricier Fire HD 8 tablet, with the Prime Day deals, that price drops from the ‘normal’ price of $79.99 to just $19.99 in my cart. The codes of axpfiretab7, axpfiretab8 and axpfiretab10 are posted on SlickDeals to help you get these prices, but I didn’t enter any codes and those prices still appeared in my cart. While I didn’t enter those codes to see the lowest prices, I did use at least one Amex Membership Reward point. It looks like using a Citi card that earns ThankYou points could score you a discount, too!

Discounted Gift Cards

Earn $10 to Spend at Amazon Shopping at Whole Foods

If you have Amazon Prime and scan your Prime Code or use your mobile number at checkout in Whole Foods stores in the U.S. between 7/11/18 and 7/17/18 on a single purchase of $10 or more you will earn $10 credit to use on Amazon from 7/16/2018 – 7/18/2018.

The $10 account credit is good for purchases on Amazon.com. Per the terms, it does not apply to Amazon Gift Cards, Prime Now transactions, subscriptions, tax, or shipping costs.

Save $5 on $20 or More Worth of Amazon Books

Use the code PRIMEBOOKS18 to save $5 off your purchase of $20 or more from Amazon Books.

$5 Amazon Promotional Credit With $25 Amazon Gift Card

A no-brainer deal if you shop Amazon regularly is to pick up a $25 Amazon gift card using the code GCPRIME18. That code that will give you $5 in Amazon credit to use by September 2, 2018. The $5 Amazon promotional credit should be deposited in your account within two days. If you have entered everything correctly, this message should display at check-out.

Save 20% on Amazon Using One Amex Point

My favorite Amazon deal of the year thus far

has been the one that saves you 20% on orders shipped and sold by Amazon when you use as few as one Amex Membership Rewards point. I’ve used this discount multiple times already, but it is not working for me now (maybe because I have used it multiple times). However, I’m seeing plenty of reports from others online that it is still working for them, so it is worth a try to activate the promotion and see if you can get it to work by using at least one Membership Reward point towards your order.
