We interrupt your web surfing with a very important announcement: Amazon is giving away money to anyone who purchases a gift card.

It's true. When you buy an Amazon gift card of $50 (or more), you'll get a $15 Amazon credit with promo code GIFTCARD2021. This works for digital gift cards as well as physical ones. The extra cash will magically appear in your Amazon account within a few days of purchase.

Of course, there's the fine print. The gift card freebie isn't for everyone — only for Prime members who have never bought an Amazon gift card in the past. If you’re not a Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here to take advantage of the sale.

After you enter the promo code at checkout, you'll see this message:

"Congratulations, your purchase qualifies you for an Amazon.com credit. A one-time $15 promotional credit will be automatically applied to your account and emailed to you within three (3) days after shipping."

Father's Day is coming up — you could stash the $50 gift card away til June and use the $15 credit yourself.

Or you can send a digital gift right now that makes you look like a big spender. Or — and we like this option best — you can buy yourself a $50 gift card, and use the $15 on a great Amazon sale — increasing your buying power by 30 percent.

We say: Grab this offer before Amazon second guesses why they're giving away free money.
