Amazon Offering $8.62 off Orders of $50+ Today Only

Article By:



This site generally focuses its discussions on the travel industry, but Amazon announced a great deal today that we had to share. Amazon was recently awarded the #1 Corporate Reputation ranking in the 2017 Harris Poll for the second year in a row! To celebrate, it’s giving customers $8.62 off orders of $50 or more.


How to Redeem

To get the discount, add $50+ worth of eligible products to your Amazon cart. Then enter the promo code BIGTHANKS at checkout. Here are the important details you need to know:


  • The offer expires at 11:59 PM Pacific Time tonight (2/22/2017)
  • The offer only applies to products sold on Amazon.com
  • The offer does not apply to digital content, video games, or Amazon gift cards
  • The order must be placed through Amazon.com or the Amazon Shopping App (not Alexa, Prime Now etc.)
  • Offer limited to one per customer per account

Final Thoughts

I do a lot of shopping on Amazon since I can buy pretty much anything on there and I get free two day shipping with Prime. So this discount is great! If you’ve been meaning to make some online purchases today’s a great day to get a discount!

If you can’t think of anything to buy, know that Amazon sells tons of third party gift cards. For example, I added both Starbucks and Panera Bread gift cards to my cart and the discount was applying correctly. So you can just buy a gift card to a retailer you’d shop at anyway and get a nice discount. Note that Amazon gift cards are not eligible for the offer. Another neat trick with Amazon is that you can pay for your purchase through the United MileagePlus X App, which nets you a minimum bonus of 0.5 United miles per dollar you spend on Amazon. Happy shopping!
