You may have already gotten your Amazon Prime membership, but if you don’t yet, here are the steps to get yours.
Sign up for an Amazon Prime account and get a free 30-day trial of the subscription.
(Or, if you already have a Prime membership that expires in October, get a 20-day free trial.)
Once you’re signed up, check out your new Prime-enabled product page and enter your email address.
Choose a gift.
Make sure it’s a new gift, or something similar that you’ve not received before.
Amazon will give you a credit towards your purchase.
(Don’t use your Amazon account number.)
After you receive your credit, add the gift to your cart and pay for the product in full.
If you’ve already purchased the gift, you can just choose a different gift.
If not, you’ll get a credit toward the purchase in your account balance.
Your gift will be delivered in 10 business days.
Amazon won’t send your gift to you until the item is shipped.
Check your order status.
If it’s still in your shopping cart, you won’t receive the gift until the next business day.
Return the gift card.
You can also return the card to Amazon at any time.
Review your order and cancel your gift card purchase.
You’ll need to contact Amazon Customer Service to cancel your Amazon gift card if you have one.
Your Amazon gift will arrive in your mail.
You should receive your Amazon Gift Card within three weeks.
Make a donation to charity.
You may receive a gift card or a credit for your purchase through a donation program like GiveWell or a charitable foundation.
