Amazon will give you $10 if you do one simple thing

Have you tried Amazon’s Prime video yet? Hit movies like “Braveheart,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and the “Star Trek” franchise are all being added to the streaming service in July.

If you’re not already using Prime Video then now could be the perfect time to start. Amazon is actually paying new customers to watch a Prime movie or show on TV.

Of course, a few restrictions apply! Amazon is giving a $10 credit to first-time Prime Video users only. Although you can purchase a separate Prime Video subscription for $8.99 per month, you must be a Prime member to receive the credit. (Prime Video is one of the several features you get with a Prime membership).

You must also watch the show or movie by July 7 at 11:59 p.m. PST. It takes three to four days for you to receive the credit and you won’t actually see it in your account. However, it will automatically be applied to your next purchase and there will be a note on your receipt to reflect the $10 off. You must also use the credit before the end of Prime Day (July 11 at 11:59 p.m. PST).

If you fit these requirements and can take advantage of this deal within the time constraints then follow these steps:

  1. Sign up for a Prime membership. It costs $10.99 per month or $99 for the whole year. Click here to read about all the perks that come along with a Prime membership. (If you’re already a member but you’ve never used Prime Video then skip this step).
  2. Connect your Prime account to a device that is enabled with Prime Video. Amazon’s streaming service works on their own devices, such as Fire TVs/Fire TV Sticks, and other devices like Roku or an XBox console. Apple TVs were just included too!
  3. Start watching a movie or show that has a “Prime” label in the left corner or is featured on a Prime list of content. You have to watch the content on a TV set. If you watch on your computer, phone, or tablet then you won’t receive the $10 credit.

It may sound a little bit complicated but getting paid to watch TV is not a bad deal. Click here for more details about this offer.
