This Might Be Prime Day's Best Deal On Switch, Xbox, And PS4 Games--But You'll Need Amazon's Credit Card
For a limited time, Amazon Prime cardholders can get 25% cash back on console store gift cards and gaming memberships.
You'll find a mess of Amazon Prime Day deals across the online retailer's departments. If you have an Amazon Prime credit card, you can take advantage of some of the most enticing deals on console store gift cards, online gaming memberships, and in-game currency during Prime Day 2020. For a limited time, Amazon is offering 25% cash back when you buy gift cards for console stores like the Xbox Store, Nintendo eShop, and PlayStation Store as well as memberships like Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PlayStation Plus. You'll find few better deals on digital credit for your favorite console's store this year.
Generally, Amazon Prime cards offer a flat 5% cash back on Amazon purchases. However, this deal essentially allows you to buy up to a $100 gift card for your preferred console for $75, meaning that you are receiving a de facto 25% off all purchases. Given that it's rare to even see a $10 discount on gift cards like this, it's a significant savings and the perfect way to prepare for purchasing next-gen games this holiday season.
The Xbox credit can be used toward Xbox games as well as the broader Microsoft Store, which includes hardware purchases like the upcoming Xbox Series X. Nintendo eShop credit can be used for Switch games, and the same applies to the PlayStation Store for PS4 and PS5 games.
Some games and digital currencies can be purchased directly from Amazon for 25% cash back, including Minecraft Dungeons and NBA 2K21. A 60-day time card for the popular MMO Final Fantasy XIV is also available.
