Amazon No Rush Credits Increased To $3 Per Delivery

Update 6/21/21: It looks like no rush credits are back and my account is getting targeted for $3 on a ton of items.

I am going to keep this one short and sweet but I noticed today that Amazon increased their no rush credits to $3 per order.  It has been $1 for forever but they recently increased it to $1.50.  It appears they are looking to lesson the stress on their shipping system even more and have tripled the offer from its normal level.

I enjoy the no rush option and often select it to get something back when I don’t need the item immediately.  It often ships within a few days anyway. Some will even break up their orders some to max out their credit.  I use my credits for movie rentals for the family which is perfect with their new Amazon Prime Video Cinema Movies section.

The one downside is that these credits do expire so be sure to check your balances from time to time (Check Your Balance Here).

  1. Even though I might have 10 items in my cart, and that I might check three boxes in one order for the $3 no rush reward (so it appears I will receive $9 in rewards), I only accrue ONE $3 reward for all the times delivered that day? Is that the way it works for you? In fact, if I place an order the next day, I think I am still only accruing one $3 credit for both orders, if all those items are arriving on the same day. Do you know if that’s the way it’s supposed to work?

  2. This must change from person to person, order time, and how much backlog Amazon has in shipping. because I have never seen more than $1.50. Amazon has been playing a lot of games with these credits lately. I do not think the savings of $1 or $1.50 is worth the extra week that items take to arrive. I order a $100 of items and you offer $1.50? I am giving up on these credits. The wait is too long.

  3. Any idea why credit wouldn’t show up properly in your account. I’ve chose no-rush option and accumulated what should have been $9.00 ($1.50×6) last week. My balance showed $0, but rented a movie for $2.99, it said promotional balance of $2.99 applied. Now when I look, I see $0.01 available (still not right).

    Ordered again today and chose no-rush for $3 promo, not showing in account. Very odd.

  4. Hey, Amazon!

    Want me to use your standard super slow super saver delivery over the very reason I have Prime? Offer a viable incentive, like $1 credit on my Amazon account to use toward a future Amazon purchase.

    Not all Prime subscribers use Amazon digital services. Not all Prime subscribers use Prime Pantry. Not all Prime subscribers read kindle e-books…

    • Exactly. If it was issued as a regular credit, it would be used on your next Amazon order. I’m over this small credit for waiting a week for my order. Sorry Amazon, $1.50 does not cut it.

  5. Never mind. It looks like the $5.99 price was with my $4 credit. Kinda confusing how they do that. I requested a refund, because I was willing to pay $2 for the movie but not $6

  6. Will the payment on my debit card update to reflect my digital credit? I had $4 in credits. Bought a $5.99 movie. It took away the $4, but my bank account is showing the full $6.41 for the movie.
