Our deals guru, Alaina Yee, was skeptical of the fact that youre essentially paying Amazon $50 to hold onto your money. On the other hand, you could always put your gift card toward one of theAmazon Prime Day dealsremaining, or hoard it for another day.
Amazon hasnt explicitly labeled this offer as a Prime Day deal on its product page, so it may persist beyond Amazon's extravaganza of bargains.Comments on the deal indicate that Amazons deal will simply stack onto an existing subscription. (The deal is a downloadable offer, not an auto-renewing subscription or gift card.) The fine print of the deal also indicates that the gift card has no fees, no expiration date, and ships separately.
