$50 Amazon gift cards are just $40 at Meijer (in store only, with coupon) through July 4th.

 

It's part of Meijer's "Summer Bucks" promotion which can be used on any general merchandise purchases including Amazon Kindle gift cards, PSN cards, video games, etc. The amount taken off per purchase varies. In this case, it's $10 off anything over $49.97.

 

Note: The promotion will not work on regular Amazon gift cards - only Kindle cards, which can be used to purchase anything on Amazon.

 

Just sign up for mPerks (Meijer's digital coupon website), clip the "Summer Bucks" coupon, go to your local Meijer store, grab an Amazon Kindle gift card (in the electronics section), and head to the checkout (use the self-checkout...it's way easier).

 

You can only use one coupon per transaction - however, you can repeat it as many times as you'd like. I bought 8 $50 Kindle cards for $40 each on 8 different transactions, then cashed them in on my Amazon account for my PS4 preorder, which makes my PS4 $320 out of pocket instead of $400. 

 

Not too shabby.

 

I've been taking advantage of this for a few years purchasing $50 PSN cards for $40, but didn't think of trying it on Kindle cards until now. But I'm glad I did!

I already have the PS4 preordered on amazon. How do I change the payment method to gift cards? The only option I'm seeing under change payment method is to add another credit card.

Go to your "Open Orders" in your Amazon account...click on "Order Details" for your PS4 preorder.  If you have a gift card balance, the top of the details page will say "Important Message: You have a gift account balance of $XX.XX." Followed by a button that says "Apply balance to this order".

 

Click that button and it will apply your gift card balance to your order. Or, you can also scroll down the page and you'll also see the same "Apply balance to this order" button below your payment information.

 

If you have $200 worth of gift cards and your order is for $400, your order total will now be $200 with the additional $200 being paid by gift cards.

 

Be aware that the your gift card balance is now tied to that order, so the only way to get that gift card money back would be to cancel your order.

Closet store for me is nearly 2 hours away.... I don't think thats nearly worth it for me. 

 

Great deal for those closer by though. PS4 for $320? That's fantastic.

Yeah, it's strange that it works. But I guess they consider gift cards to be GC's for Meijer as well as ones for restaurants and similar places that you can get near the front of the store.

Kindle, PSN, Microsoft Points, Wii cards...they're all located in the electronics department and ring up as "general merchandise" items.

Meijer typical has coupons like this every two or three months, so look for it at least once or twice more before the end of the year.

I usually use this to stock up on PSN and Nintendo Bucks but the PS4 approach is tempting. Hmm.

This is a good deal. Most of the time you are saving 15% with the Meijer coupons. This deal is saving 20%.

DAMN nice find Millsy if you got money to spend today! I'll try this out and if it works i'll buy $600 worth of credit for $480 cash today.

 

I have a PS4 and XB1 on lock for day 1 from Amazon since i'm still undecided but leaning Sony... I was planning on GS midnight release day for a PS4 but $80 savings I can wait and get my $100 back from the devil or just sell my reserve to a friend since I am #6.

 

Already spoken for:

$80 Madden 14 with free NFL ticket

$320 PS4 or $400 XB1

+ tax since I live 5 minutes from the Amazon shipping most all the games..

 

Hmmm Maybe I should buy more today since November gonna be expensive....

I have a question. Can you clip the coupon once and then use it several times, or do you have to clip it again every time you use it?

Clip it once and you're good to go. It's linked to your mPerks account until the deal expires at the end of the day on July 4th.

Grab Kindle card...go to self checkout...enter mPerks info on screen...scan card...price drops to $40...pay...repeat as many times as you'd like.

My store was out of $50 cards so had to do $25. Got $200 worth. Figure I'd get the rest later.

Yes, the coupons say one use per transaction.

 

Also the OP should probably change the title to something about the bucks and not just Amazon cards.

nice find op

I might do this for my preordered xbox one. I already have a $100 amazon gc from my credit card.
If I buy 8 of these it would bring the cost to $320 for the new console.

Have you tried turning it on and off again?

Thanks! I'll probably buy 4-5. I won't clear out the whole store so that others have a chance to get it too.

Thanks for the advice, OP! Your directions worked perfectly for getting the gift card balance to apply to my PS4 preorder. $320 is an amazing deal for the PS4!

 

The only pain in the ass part was doing the same transaction 8 times and typing in the same information over and over. The employees at the self-checkout were shooting me weird looks after the 4th card. But that was well worth getting $80 off of a new console. Thanks again!

Could have walked to the set at the other end or just gone to a cashier. ;)
