From the verbiage, it would definitely seem that you have to have received some kind of e-mail from them regarding this promo.  Seems YMMV, for sure.

Haven't received that email yet.  Guess I'll hold off for now, but I'll keep checking.  Thanks.

So we could buy a gift card for ourselves and then get the extra $10? Is that right or am I looking at this the wrong way?

I got my email at 12:24 PST.

I got the email. I see you can send the gift card via email or FB. So how does this work? The recipient gets a code for the $50 amount that they enter in? In that case, I plan to jus send it to my FB account. Also it says the $10 promo is only valid till Aug 31. Can I use it on a game preorder for a release after? Would be cool to combine this with the other $10 promo from the trade in offer

 

ETA: Scratch the last part as I see it says i cant be combined. Still I wonder if I could apply it to my PS4 preorder

I dont understand how this is a "Deal"?  You give someoone 50 bucks then get yourself back 10 bucks, how does that benefit me?

Purchase the gift card for yourself.

Mathematically Correct.

Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

Has anyone done this?  I got the email (which has no promo code with it) and went through the checkout up to the point of confirming my purchase and did not see a place to enter a promo code anywhere.

Hmm, probably can't use Amazon credit to purchase Amazon credit?

It says that the promotional code will be emailed to you by July 15, which means it's a "promo code" that you enter at check out.  I'm hoping that the $10 trade-in promo is a "different" kind of promo that you can stack, since those credits are one of those "hidden" credits that are automatically applied to your next eligible purchase.  I also have the $20 video game bonus credit from a few months ago, hopefully those will stack too.  Anybody here knows how these promos generally stack or not stack?

not that my word is law, but I've never seen different promo credits not stack.

Got the email a day or so ago and just ordered myself a $50 GC.  Not sure how long it will take for the $10 promo to show up but so far nothing.

I see that this $10 credit expires in August. I was planning on preordering a PS4 game using this offer. Is anyone aware if I can use this $10 on a preorder today that I probably won't technically be charged for until some time in November?

So, just to confirm, people have had no issue sending themselves a gift card and getting the promo credit?

No I've done this last month. I got this deal last month for some "Mother's day" special and sent the card to myself and still got the promo credit.

I'm not sure how this'll work, but I know I'll be able to spend the $50 GC anyway, so I went for it.

With the line stating "Promo Code may be applied only to eligible products sold by Amazon.com Inc"

 

does it apply to PSN cards as they are Sold by Amazon Digital Services, Inc. or those are two different things altogether?

Amazon never sends me these any more. They know I'm going to buy from them anyway. Makes me sad. :(

The promo said the $10 code would be emailed by July 15. Guess we have a little longer to wait.

Will this use real money from my card or will take 50 from the Amazon credits I have?
