It’s pretty easy to earn credits on Amazon that you can use towards eBooks, music downloads, and video rentals or purchases. 

This trick is actually using them!

This post will answer all of your questions about earning and using Amazon promotional credit in one place. 

What are promotional credits on Amazon? 

Choose FREE Amazon Day Delivery for fewer boxes and a $2 digital credit
Amazon sometimes offers credits as a thank-you for choosing No-Rush shipping or Amazon Day Delivery. 

These credits are automatically applied to your account after your item ships.

They can usually only be used on digital products such as ebooks, music, movies, or apps. They’re called Amazon mp3 credit or just promotional credits on Amazon. 

How do I earn digital credits on Amazon?

When you go to the checkout page on Amazon, you will sometimes see a banner with an offer for a digital reward if you select No-Rush Shipping or Amazon Day delivery. 

Amazon offers digital rewards to encourage you to have items delivered together or shipped at a slower pace.

This in turn saves Amazon money on shipping costs. 

So if you don’t need your item right away, I suggest opting for No-Rush or Amazon Day delivery and start racking up digital rewards!

When you select a slower delivery you’ll see a confirmation that they will automatically apply a digital award to your account when the order ships. 

You will also receive an email from Amazon once your item ships confirming that they’ve added the credit to your account.

How do I use Amazon promotional credit? 

If you have any credits on Amazon they will automatically be applied to reduce the cost of your digital item at check-out!

In this way, Amazon digital credits and Amazon mp3 credits are very easy to use. 

How do I check my Amazon digital credits? 

Have you ever tried to find out if you have any promotional credits for Amazon Video or Music and had a terrible time finding out?

That’s because it is virtually impossible to find from your Amazon Account home page (or anywhere else for that matter).

But it is possible to check how much credit you have before you make a digital purchase. 

You can check your Amazon promotional credit for the following: 

  • Kindle eBook credits
  • Amazon Mp3 credits 
  • Amazon Video credits
  • Amazon Appstore apps

Here is a handy link to check your account for promotional credit from selecting Amazon Day delivery or from other means.

Notice that this page will also tell you when your promotional credits expire!

I hope this helps you find out if you have any Amazon digital credits, such as Amazon mp3 credits. If you have any questions please leave a comment below or send me a message on The Frugal South’s Facebook page

No Kidding! "That’s because it is virtually impossible to find... "

After 10-15 minutes - and a half-dozen Landing Pages from Google Search - your 2023 link was BINGO!

Thanks so much. It is stunning that Amazon No-Rush credit balance is is so hard to find, especially since it is heavily promoted. I like the option and building credits; but why so hard to find the balance?

Thanks for the information. I did find that once logged into Amazon, clicking on account, then scrolling (on my phone) down to payments i see No-rush Reward Balance. You mentioned it was virtually impossible and now it's straightforward.
