I'm trying to figure out how much promotional credit I have before I make a purchase (stupid 1-click for digital purchases).

I do not want to check my gift card balance. I want to know how much promotional credit I have.

For example: As of writing this question, Amazon gives $1 MP3 credit with the purchase of any CD album. I've purchased a few of those, but I don't know how many MP3 credits I have. Where can I check that?

I know I've seen a page in the past with it on it, but I can't find that page now.

it's kind of crazy how ridiculously hard it is to find this page unless you already know where to look. – Robert S Ciaccio Nov 30 '10 at 6:30
I want to know this as well. My circumstance is the same as in the original post. The answer above does not take me to the place where I can see my CREDIT BALANCE. (This should not be difficult. So why am I - are we - having such a hard time with this simple thing?) – user8706 Feb 16 '11 at 0:08

As well as 'music and video', you can also get promotional credit in other departments. (In particular as a quid pro quo if you choose 'no rush delivery' rather than 'one day delivery' from Amazon Prime.) – Colonel Panic Jul 19 at 16:29

  1. Log in to your Amazon account
  2. Click the Credit Redeem page.
  3. Click the "Enter Your Code" button. It will bring up a dialog with all your credit balances.

The Amazon UK site has an equivalent page with a "Check your balance" button.

Perhaps worth noting: I have never seen any credit appear in the "Kindle Editions" box, but I have definitely had these credits apply to kindle books. Unfortunately there is no way to know that they will be applied until after you purchase the kindle book (because you can only buy them with one-click). – Jer Apr 30 '15 at 16:22
Is there any UI element on Amazon.com that will take you to the Credit Redeem page, or must you use a link such as the one above? – Senseful Dec 29 '15 at 17:50
I made a blog post (ad-free) about this process to make it easier to understand: calebbron.com/stuff/amzn-no-rush-promo-credits.html – cbron May 8 at 20:05

You can tweak the other answer's link to get directly at the promotional credit. (You must be signed into your Amazon.com account first.)

Just append to the link https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/?ie=UTF8&docId=1000296831


This will cause the Credit Balances to instantiate without any clicking. Additionally, to automatically scroll down to this popup, append


Direct link (no clicky, must be signed in) https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/?ie=UTF8&docId=1000296831&gcIsProcess=0#gc

Lists individual credit balances:

  • Amazon Gift Card
  • Amazon MP3
  • Amazon Instant Video
  • Kindle Editions
  • Software/Video Games

If you're looking for a more stable link, I recommend you use:

Amazon publicizes this URL in emails as follows:

For redemption instructions and additional information, click here http://www.amazon.com/mp3redeem.

Since its publicized, and it looks like a marketing URL, I'm guessing Amazon will ensure this link always points to the most recent version of the Credit Redemption page.

If you're an Amazon Smile user, that links also works if you change "www." to "smile." – cjm Mar 5 at 0:05
