Not per say a Video Game Deal, but since I keep seeing threads like AMEX and such popping up I figured I'd mention this one as well since it can be used toward buying video games.

Promotion is as follows and only available to those with either a trial or paid AmazonStudent Prime membership.

Link: http://www.amazon.co...node=9358995011

Spend $50 or More on Select Amazon Gift Cards, Get a $10 Promotional Credit for Yourself
Show Dad you care with this Amazon Student-exclusive offer: Buy a Father's Day gift card and get a $10 promotional code to spend on yourself. Just purchase at least $50 in select Father's Day Amazon.com Gift Cards (shown below) by June 15, 2014 and we'll email you a $10 promotional code to spend at Amazon.com. You will receive your promotional code by June 30, 2014.

A perfect present for dads, grandpas, and uncles, Amazon.com Gift Cards can be sent via email, posted on Facebook, printed at home, or sent through the mail (with Free One-Day Shipping). Amazon.com Gift Cards are redeemable storewide for millions of items and never expire. Learn how to use your promotional code. Terms and conditions apply; learn more.


Important Notification: This offer is valid ONLY to Amazon Student members with a free trial or paid membership to Amazon Prime. Not an Amazon Student? Go here to learn about and sign up for the program:
(non-Referral link)

If you don't have an AmazonStudent Prime account yet but are looking to make one to take advantage of this deal, we'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up using one of the referrals below:

Can I buy the gift card and apply it to my own account and still get the $10 promo?

I was wondering that myself after I saw the email just now. There doesn't appear to be any restriction against it.

In theory, applying the Gift card to your own account should not hinder you from receiving the extra $10 GC. If keeping both GC is the route you want to take, you could always play it safe by waiting until you've received the extra $10 GC before applying the $50 GC to your own account.

I don't see any restrictions either, I've done the exact same thing in the past. If you're unsure, you could always order the physical gift card or send the e-gift card to a secondary e-mail address.

 

It is worth noting that "the Promo Code is valid through and expires on July 31, 2014, 11:59 PM (PT)", however you will receive your code by June 30 at latest. Also FYI, you must buy directly from amazon, in my experience it doesn't could towards items "fulfilled" by amazon.

 

Still, really good deal imo, better than the "$5 credit with purchase of $45 in gift cards" offer

As highlighted in the OP, it doesn't matter whether you have a trial or paid AmazonStudent Prime membership in order to qualify for this promotion. Unfortunately it is only available to AmazonStudent Prime memberships, so other Prime memberships such as AmazonMom and Regular Prime are excluded in this offer. But as long as you have an .edu address is it fairly simple to get an AmazonStudent account.

I've seen this offer pop up every few months and everytime I've taken advantage of it and bought myself a card, I've never had a problem getting the bonus credit. Done this three times already.

Thanks for the nomination for the Most Memorable CAG Villan 2012, Blade!

As people have stated above, it really doesn't mention any restrictions about redeeming the $50 GC yourself. Also, it seems people have redeemed the GC themselves on other similar promotions and have always ended up receiving the $10 GC.

I honestly have no idea if I'm still a Student member... I started sharing Prime with my friend (he's the primary holder), so I have no clue if I'm eligible.

Great idea, I updated the OP with referrals so people have the opportunity to help out a fellow CAG if they want to.

By the way if I buy 2 $50 GC's will we get more than 1 promotional credit or is it just 1 $10 credit regardless.

Can I buy the gift card and apply it to my own account and still get the $10 promo?


Last year I did the same when the offer was open to the public, not just students. Sent a gift card to my wife's email, got the credit, appled it to my account and then applied the gift card to my account.

Hope it works again.

thanks for reporting many of us in the same boat. I know the terms allow Amazon to take up to 6/30 to deliver, and it looks like they are happy to do just that!
