Just in time for Mother's Day, Amazon is giving away a free $5 credit probably aimed at the millions of people buying Mother’s Day gifts, but of course, the reality is you can use it however you want. 

In order to bag your free $5 credit, you need to be an Amazon Prime member and you'll need to buy an eGift card of $50 or more through May 14. If you do, you will get a code for the free $5, according to our friends at Tom’s Guide, which recently revealed this deal.
