The Top 3 Credit Cards for Shopping on Amazon Prime Day

Want to make the most of those Prime Day sales? Use a credit card offering bonus rewards at Amazon for an even better deal.

Amazon’s biggest sale of the year, Prime Day, is almost here. The event, which technically lasts 48 hours, will take place on Oct. 13 and 14. Although it usually occurs in July, Amazon decided to hold it later this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Perhaps you’re excited for Prime Day and you already know what you’ll buy, or you plan to just look around and see if any deals jump out at you. Either way, Amazon’s sales aren’t the only way to save. You can also significantly boost your savings by using the right credit card when you check out.

Products described “as new” and without scratches will be eligible for a voucher worth 50% of its original price.

This goes down to 40% for items that are “very good” – so minor scratches – or 30% for “well-used” goods with several scratches. 

The vouchers will have no expiry date to discourage shoppers from buying furniture that they don’t really need.

Shoppers are warned that they may be able to sell your items at a higher price than what your voucher would be worth through second-hand selling sites like eBay, Gumtree or Facebook selling pages.

Make sure you do your research

Queen Elizabeth discretely scraps Prince Andrew post cards from Buckingham gift shop

In lieu of the public backlash that is following Prince Andrew, the official Balmoral gift shop has gutted pictures and souvenirs of the Duke of York per reports.

It was a customer who visited the gift shop that revealed the news to The Sun, “Previously Andrew postcards have been on sale” the source claimed.

“But while there are postcards of Charles, Anne and Edward – and even the Queen’s grandchildren, Beatrice and Eugenie – there is not one of the Duke of York.”

“When I asked if it was possible to buy one of Andrew, a sales assistant said ‘No, we’ve taken them away. And they won’t be making any more of them.’”

This royal brush off is the latest in a series of calculated decisions taken by the crown to “airbrush” the Duke of York out

JB Hi-Fi Will Now Let You Use Gift Cards On PS5 And Xbox Series X Pre-Orders, Sort Of

JB Hi-Fi has backflipped on its stance to not accept gift cards on PS5 and Xbox Series X pre-orders. But it’s still complicated.

Originally no gift cards were allowed

On Monday JB Hi-Fi began sending out text messages to customers who had pre-ordered the next gen consoles. This included a note about how gift cards would not be accepted as a form of payment on the remainder of the pre-orders.

“Your spot in the queue for your PS5 Console pre-order is confirmed! We’ll SMS you soon with a link to pay your remaining console balance. Pay by Mastercard, Visa or PayPal. Gift Cards not accepted. More info: https://jbhifi.com.au/2020consoles,” one of the texts read.

This resulted in backlash from customers on social media, claiming the restrictions weren’t disclosed when they originally pre-ordered the consoles. The original pre-order pages for the consoles didn’t mention these restrictions once pre-orders had been closed.

We Asked JB Hi-Fi Why It Won’t Accept Gift Cards For Xbox Series X and PS5 Pre-Orders

This week, JB Hi-Fi began sending out texts to customers who had pre-ordered PS5 and Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. There’s been backlash for a number of reasons, including the revelation that gift cards won’t be an acceptable form of payment.

Other frustrations have included some customers being bumped from launch day delivery due to the sheer volume of orders. There has also been some confusion around when some customers will receive their consoles. However, this has been an issue across a number of online retailers.

The first round of texts from JB Hi-Fi went out on October 5, which was a public holiday in New South Wales.

“Your spot in the queue for your PS5 Console pre-order is confirmed! We’ll SMS you soon with a link to pay your remaining console balance. Pay by Mastercard, Visa or PayPal. Gift Cards not accepted. More info: https://jbhifi.com.au/2020consoles,” one of
