This year's Amazon Prime Day event is just around the corner, a fact that won't be lost on any Amazon Prime member - they're a deals savvy crew after all.

What members might not know, however, is there's actually a bonus saving up for grabs right now if you visit this particular page today (opens in new tab). Right here, you'll find Amazon's latest bid to help out small businesses, and a specially curated page of useful products that can be bought to get a free $10 of credit assigned to your account. 

Simply check out the wide array of products on everything from electronics, to toys, to home items and purchase an order worth over $10 to get your free credit. Sure, it's not a huge saving, but that $10 can be a handy thing to have in your pocket when you're already perusing heavily discounted items on Prime Day itself and a nice little bonus if you're interested in helping out businesses hit hard by recent events.

Just below, you'll find a quick summary of the categories on sale, plus a quick link to the Amazon Prime free trial (opens in new tab) - which we recommend considering if you're not already a member since it'll make you eligible for the lowest prices on the big day itself.
