If you have a Halifax account with cashback extras, or any cashback linked to a credit/debit card spend, check if you have offers for COOP or Spar, and top up there. I used to do this when I had prepay energy meters topping up the max amount possible and the cashback all went through OK.

Thank you.

The only downside of this, is you need to explain to the staff how to use their PayPoint machine
I have to show them, every time I need to use the service.
I was charged 40p for topping up by Credit card. Cash would have been free FYI

I fear that I will get to stage 2 & be met with a blank expression as it's not a Ginsters pasty or a can of special brew.

Thanks OP - I like free money.

Never used this before as you can top up your account online (or just pay when you purchase)
Is this just adding £20 to your Amazon balance to get a free fiver?
scorchio!
Seems like it. I guess its for people that want to shop online but don't have a bank card?
Thanks op an easy hassle free extra £5 seen a lot more complicated deals to get free Amazon credits

Yep, get your barcode online and scan in shop
Done Thanks
good one
thanks OP
I've never used top up on Amazon before. Is this just like buying a £20 Amazon card from a shop and then adding it to your Amazon account? Or is there something else you need to do in the shop. I just usually buy as and when. Need to buy a couple of bits off Amazon soon though so a fiver in my pocket is more than welcome.

Edit: ah so you just show them the barcode, they scan it, you give them £20 and bobs your favourite uncle?

Just popped into my local posh Wiltshire village shop. Topped up £ 20 fee free via my debit card . Lady in front of me was buying a bottle of champagne. I was back within my home office in ten minutes.

Poor people.......I see most paying with Fifties
You can use the amazon App to create the barcode and just take it to the store for top up. thanks OP
Option for Amazon to send weblink to you by SMS. Note that some mobile providers - and some phones -)will convert the free SMS into a (charged) MMS message, so you end up paying 25p or more for the privilege of receivibng said message #btmobile #windowsphones

Which app? Amazon has dozens!
Do you mean "Amazon for tablets"?

That's just a browser for the Amazon website; as far as I can tell, it doesn't have any special provision for displaying your topup barcode. (You still have to have the link texted to a mobile no, or printed out.)

Or does the prime now app have some special function?
Or perhaps Amazon underground app store?
Be more specific pls.

sorry.. I just have the amazon shopping app (android) one for my smartphone.
Login, Your Account, Top up your account and then select Top up in store and this gives you
the option to create a barcode. Handy to take it to store.

Hopefully above should be similar in other Amazon apps

Thanks for the warning, but I found it's just a standard text message with a weblink (see below) - so it's not a MMS, which could be chargeable. So free & easy if you don't own a printer, or don't want the hassle of printing it. Plus, when you follow the link, there's an option to save the barcode to the Amazon app (the standard shopping one).

Thanks for that!
Has this worked for anyone yet?
I just tried it at a PayPoint store and they weren't able to scan the barcode on my phone.
Luckily, I asked them to scan it before I purchased the TU.

Maybe maybe not, but enjoys denigrating anybody and everybody they possible can, yes. I am sure anybody they may know is long since sick of hearing it, that is why they put that garbage on here.
31700027-N4yfL.jpgSeems there FAQ's offer conflicting help info.....
So i would assume that it's just like asking for a mobile top up, ie can i get a £20 top up voucher, they give you a receipt with the number you redeem online, (i suppose this is good if you only want a £5 top up, or you could just buy a gift card for £20).
However the app info then states no mention of asking the cashier for a top up it says if you cant get the barcode to scan for whatever reason you need to print off a copy of your unique top up code. (why would you need to do this if you can just ask the cashier for the amount you wish to top up)?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but all the barcode does is identify the product you want to purchase.

The £5 bonus is awarded when you apply the top-up to your account. (A separate step to the actual purchase)

:Edit:

Oh, looks like a am at least partially wrong.
So will we still qualify for the bonus if we buy a top up voucher without the barcode, and apply it manually? Or is that simply considered an Amazon gift card and not eligible?

I went into a Paypoint shop today. I got blank looks when I mentioned I had a barcode, so I just paid for a £20 top-up, which I applied to my Amazon account, just as you would went increasing your gift card balance. No £5 bonus materialised so I went on Amazon Chat and they said it should appear within an hour. When an hour passed with still no bonus I went back on Chat and they manually applied the £5 promo to my account. I assume the gift card code I applied identifies it as having come from a Paypoint terminal, so there weren't any issues with Amazon doing this as they said they knew I was eligible for the offer.
just did it in my local co-op it was easy once the guy worked out he had to scan it on the handheld scanner not the one built into the till. I've also received an email about the £5 credit been awarded to me. Hopefully that 10% cashback via halifax also tracks , I had forgot that even existed. I've been loving the amazon top up offers that have been posted recently. I think i'm going to use the money and finally buy that £400 oculus
