Black Friday is just around the corner and many shoppers are eagerly awaiting the bargains that come with it.
Today, Martin Lewis, the MoneySavingExpert founder, has shared another tip just in time for the big day.
Customers might be eligible for up to £20 credit at Amazon.
The incentive has been introduced after Amazon announced plans to stop accepting Visa credit cards as a payment method by January 18, 2022.
Those who have Visa credit as a default payment method will receive an email about how to use the offer.
Prime customers are owed up to £20 while non-Prime customers can get £10.
As ever, there’s a catch: The Sun reports that the offer applies to customers with only Visa credit on their account.
“This promotional offer is valid for a limited time only or while supplies last. Amazon reserves the right to modify or cancel the promotion at any time,” according to the terms and conditions of the offer, so customers should hurry.
Excluding subscription services, the credit is eligible for use on Amazon purchases.
It can be used on more than one transaction.

An Amazon spokesperson told The Sun why they are stopping Visa credit card payments.
They said: “The cost of accepting card payments continues to be an obstacle for businesses striving to provide the best prices for customers.
“These costs should be going down over time with technological advancements, but instead they continue to stay high or even rise.”
A spokesperson for Visa said: “We are very disappointed that Amazon is threatening to restrict consumer choice in the future.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Amazon, and we continue to work toward a resolution, so our cardholders can use their preferred Visa credit cards at Amazon UK without Amazon-imposed restrictions come January 2022.”
