Just yesterday, Amazon announced this year's Prime Day will take place later this month on June 21 and 22, landing the 2-day shopping event earlier than ever before. With less than 20 days to go before the big sale, we're already beginning to see Amazon offering some excellent, exclusive deals that only Prime members are eligible to redeem.

During past Prime Days, there have been a few opportunities where Amazon Prime members can actually earn money with easy tasks such as downloading an app or buying a gift card, and it looks like this year will be no exception. As part of its early Prime Day deals, Amazon is offering a free $10 promotional credit when you purchase $40 or more in select Amazon gift cards and use promo code GIFTFORPD21 during checkout. You should see a message just under "Review items and shipping" on the checkout page to confirm you'll receive the credit when purchasing.

VPN Deals: Lifetime license for $16, monthly plans at $1 & more

Easy Savings

Free $10 at Amazon with $40+ Gift Card purchase

One of Amazon's earliest Prime Day offers lets Prime members score a free $10 promotional credit to use at your leisure when you purchase $40 or more in select Amazon gift cards and use the following promo code at checkout while supplies last!

Limited Time Offer

With coupon: GIFTFORPD21

Of course, if you're not a Prime member already, now's the perfect time to join with Prime Day only a few weeks away. You can start a free 30-day trial right now to score today's gift card deal as well as all the exclusive offers we'll be seeing over the next month. You'll also gain free two-day shipping, access to the Prime Video streaming service, and other perks with your membership.

Today's offer isn't available on all Amazon gift cards, so you'll want to first make sure you're only choosing from the Amazon gift cards on this list at Amazon. The options include an Amazon eGift Card, Amazon Print at Home Gift Card, or the Amazon Mini Prime Envelope Tin that's mailed to your home or the home of your intended recipient. You'll have to purchase a gift card valued at $40 or more to be eligible for the credit.

You can learn even more about this year's event, including a few other deals that are available now, in our Prime Day roundup. Deals like these are the best way to make the most of your Prime membership and earn back the cost of subscribing, but you only have through June 20 or until supplies run out to take advantage of the offer, so be sure to shop sooner rather than later if you don't want to miss out.
