Genius Shopping Tricks Every Amazon Prime Member Should Know

Truly savvy users of the platform know and leverage some incredible hacks to improve their online shopping experience and keep their household spending under budget.

Here are some genius-level hidden tips that Amazon Prime members use to find and take advantage of the best deals.

Amazon's Trade-in Program is great way to recycle your old gear into new money. Amazon allows Prime members to resell books, video games, old tablets, or cell phones. It's essentially a virtual garage sale, but with a lot less work.

Amazon's Trade-in Program

Cardholders earn 5% back at Amazon and Whole Foods Market, including digital downloads, Gift Cards, Amazon Fresh orders, Amazon Prime subscriptions, and items sold by third-party merchants through's marketplace.

Amazon Rewards Visa

After you've created a full profile, watch the tutorials, and complete surveys until you reach 1000 points. Then the sky's the limit. With as little as 1000 points earned, you can cash out and earn a $10 Amazon gift card.


Sharing Your Prime Account

Did you know Amazon allows users to share Prime benefits with one another person? All the benefits, including free Prime shipping, Prime Video, and music and digital content purchased through Amazon work for both people.

Another tip is to link other accounts, such as Hilton Honors, to your Amazon account and earn a gift card with those hotel points. This is ideal if you don't stay in Hiltons often and likely would not otherwise earn a free hotel stay or other benefits from those points.
