The way Black Friday takes over the internet for not just a day but a whole week really is a thing of beauty, especially if you are a retailer hoping to make a fortune while shoppers pick up perceived bargains.

During the fiasco that is Black Friday, it’s unusual for anyone to give anything away for free, though. Oddly, that’s exactly what Amazon seems to be doing.

As you might expect, you will have to jump through some hoops but none of them are particularly strenuous and at the end of it all, you will have a free $5 credit with which to make a purchase of $10 or more. Sounds good, right? Well, at this point, it is worth noting that you will need to be in the United States for this to work, obviously, but also that the offer does not appear to be available to everyone, so your mileage may, unfortunately, vary. Still, it’s worth giving it a shot!

What you will need to do is give the Amazon app a download from here if you have not already, and then perform some tasks, none of which are complicated. They include:

Once those tasks are complete, you will have a shiny new credit voucher in your notifications, giving you a nice discount. All of the above tasks are outlined on Amazon’s website, linked above, and all involve specific items that need to be watched or searched. It’s all pretty self explanatory but we’d set aside a good ten minutes to go through them all. That’s a small price to pay for a $5 discount, though, right?

To be notified of other similar deals and giveaways on Amazon, enable Personalized Notifications within the app as shown above.

This offer is valid till 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time) on December 4, 2017.
