Get $20 Amazon Prime Day credit for trying out Amazon Photos

by Kurt Knutsson

If you’ve never been an Amazon Prime member, Amazon has been giving you lots of reasons to check them out lately, including:

and now a $20 Prime day credit for uploading at least one photo into Amazon Photos.


How does this Amazon promotion work?

1) Visit this Amazon page, scroll down and sign in (or create an account if you don’t have one)

2) Get the Amazon Photos App here (iOS, Android, desktop app)

3) Upload your photos into the app

You qualify if you just upload one photo to begin with.  So upload it and then you must turn on “auto-save” to automatically back up your photos.  Amazon photos touts that you can upload unlimited full-resolution photos with your Prime account.

4) Within 4 days, you will receive an email with your $20 Amazon credit

5) Disconnect the auto-save function once you get the credit.


Am I really going to get $20 credit from Amazon?  What’s the catch?

While there certainly are details to this promotion that you can see at the bottom of this page, here are the 3 main ones you should note:

  • To earn this $20 credit, you must be a Prime Member and this must be the first time you are downloading the app associated with your account.
