Amazon Prime members have a new way to save.
With Amazon Reload, Prime shoppers can get 2 percent back—up to $196 per day—every time they add funds to an Amazon.com Gift Card Balance using a checking account.
To take advantage of this new option, you'll first need to a Prime membership, which costs $99 yearly or $10 monthly, and offers free two-day shipping on Amazon.com orders plus a number of other perks. To set up 2 percent rewards, you'll also need to provide your US bank account and routing number plus a debit card number and US driver's license number. Amazon said it sometimes routes orders through your debit card instead of your bank account to fulfill your reload faster, which is why you need to provide both.
Then, the next time you go to reload your Gift Card balance, use the 2 percent rewards payment method.

"For qualifying transactions, a reward equal to 2 percent of your qualifying reload amount will be automatically applied in the next 24-48 hours to your Amazon Balance after the qualifying transaction has been completed," Amazon says in its terms and conditions.
Amazon said this is a "limited time offer," so take advantage of it while you can. Also, take note: the amount you reload to your Amazon Balance is nonrefundable or redeemable for cash.
Amazon earlier this month announced that customers who have a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer card can now sign up for Prime for just $5.99 a month. An EBT card is commonly used to distribute funds for government assistance programs like Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and Women, Infants, and Children Nutrition Program (WIC).
