Not all Amazon Prime Day deals are online: Turns out the company has actual physical stores as well. And if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, you have the opportunity to score some free money — after a fashion — by stepping foot into those storefronts.
For example, visit your local Whole Foods between now and Oct. 14 and spend at least $10, making sure to scan your Prime code at checkout. You’ll automatically receive a $10 credit to use on Prime Day (Oct. 13 and 14). This works if you’re ordering online from Whole Foods as well.

This isn’t your only option. In fact, Amazon will let you earn as much as $50 to spend on Prime Day — one $10 credit at a time. Here are your other potential destinations:
- Visit an Amazon Fresh store. At checkout, use the QR code in the Fresh In-Store section of the Amazon app.
- Visit an Amazon Go store or Amazon Go Grocery. To enter the store, use the Amazon Go app or Amazon mobile app tied to your Amazon Prime account.
- Visit an Amazon 4-star store and use your Prime account at checkout.
- Visit an Amazon Books or Amazon Pop Up and use your Prime account at checkout.
And while we’re on the subject of “free money,” if you sign up for an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, you’ll get a $100 Amazon gift card. The no-annual-fee Visa also pays you 5% back on just about everything you buy from Amazon (and Whole Foods).
