PSA – Amazon No Rush Reward Credits Expire
Update: there is a round of credits set to expire October 18th so be sure to use them before then. Check your balance to see if yours is included.
You can check your balance and expiration dates HERE.
I love Amazon’s no rush shipping feature. I ship almost everything that way for the extra freebies I get. Usually the item ships in a day or two anyway and I don’t really wait any longer for it. I usually collect the $1 digital media credit per order. I may even order items separately on purpose to stack up these credits but don’t tell anyone ;). There have been some other amazing offers in the past as well, like the $5 printed book credit. Well it turns out these no rush shipping overs come with an expiration date.

The offer I get most often is the $1 digital credit offer. I store these up and then purchase a movie for an upcoming trip or something new for the kids to watch. For the first time I noticed that these balances expire. I don’t think there is a way to get the expiration when you earn them (if there is let me know in the comments section). But when I checked my recent balance this is what I saw.
I would guess that you get 4-5 months before they expire based on the March 1 expiration date on recent earnings. So you have some time to build them up but don’t wait too long to use them.
Maybe this is something everyone already knew and I was just in the dark on it? I thought it was worth letting you guys know in case you were like me and were oblivious to it.
I am not sure how many credits I have let expire since they don’t give you any type of notice unless you check your balances. Just as with miles and points you gotta earn them and burn them.
