On Amazon Prime Now, if you add a physical Amazon gift card to your basket it counts towards the £20 minimum spend threshold. This means that if you only want one item that's less than £20 you can add the gift card to your basket, allowing you to reach minimum spend.

You then credit the gift card to your own account. This does mean you can only spend the voucher on amazon but this shouldn't be an issue if you're someone who uses amazon regularly.

But you can't use the gift card until the next order? How is this a loophole?

This is like buying a gift card as normal and counts towards the £20 minimum spend as with any other item?

What am I missing here?

Cheers

If you're someone who will order from amazon often, there's no loss because you'll spend the voucher anyway later in time. It just makes it easier for those wanted to hit the minimum spend value without unnecessarily buying items they won't use. Hope this helps 🙂

blobbyshroom Okay I understand now. The wording was rather long winded initially 👌 Like reading a PhD paper 🙂

you have to spend a minimum of £20 to use the amazon 'prime now' feature. if you add an amazon gift card to your basket it takes you up to that £20 threshold without you spending money on something you won't use. This doesnt save money but is useful if people don't want to spend £20 in one go. You can then use the £20 voucher for future amazon orders 🙂
