Get $15 Credit for Trying Amazon’s Photo App (free)

Amazon is trying to get people to start using their photo storage and app, so they are offering a $15 incentive for downloading the app and uploading your photos.

The credit applies to Prime customers who are using the app for the first time and go through a link advertising the $15 credit.

This is one link you can go through.

The credit isn’t a straight-up gift card and can only be used during a single purchase of $25 or more.  But if you use Amazon for basically everything like I do, that shouldn’t be a problem.

Here are the instructions for receiving the promotion:

  1. Download and sign in to the free Amazon Photos app.
  2. Upload your photos. Turn on Auto-Save to automatically back up your photos and free up space on your phone.
  3. Turn on Auto-Save to back up your photos automatically
  4. Claim your reward. Within 14 days you will receive an email with your $15 Amazon credit.

It doesn’t appear that you *must* turn auto-save on in order to receive the promotion.  The terms and conditions say it is for new customers who “upload a photo for the first time”.

The offer expires July 31, 2019.

  1. Keep in mind you could be selling photos of your face (as well as others’ faces and whatever is in your photos) to Amazon for $15. Given their recent experiments with their Amazon Go stores, there’s no telling what Bezos really wants from your data; $15 is nothing to them.

    Per their privacy policy ( “…you agree that the Services may use image recognition technology to group together photos containing people with similar facial characteristics, and to organize and tag your photos. We retain image recognition data, including data about the faces, in the photos you store using the Services until you disable the image recognition features or your account’s access to the Services is terminated.”

    If you do decide to go through with this offer, know that you can opt out of the image recognition service here:
