Ahh ok never heard of that change tbh
Yes I got it, came through as a notification. When you do get it just be aware that you need to spend it all at once. I made the mistake of making a purchase of around £12 and the other £8 disappeared. Luckily I got it sorted through customer service though.

Just spoke to a time waster on Amazon chat, discussing slow chat and didn't help me.

I'm scared I'm gonna miss out

If I remember correctly there was also a clickable bar in the app advertising that it was available
I didn't get it, complained and got it manually applied. Use live chat and copy and paste the promotion link so they can see it.
I’ll look through my emails and see if I still have anything

Yeah that's Amazon for you! Try and speak to a manager perhaps. I got mine applied pretty easily as it was just £5 (and most reps can give out £5 easily) but £20 is a lot more

It was on top page on black Friday if you were eligible which I was. I have a screen shot of the promotion, don't worry.
No one got emails tho
I always do a screenshot of the promo (any amazon promo), then as soon as you email it to them they give you what you're asking for.

They said I paid with gift card and I'm not eligible! What a joke as I'm sure it didn't state that.
It stated you cant buy gift cards with the promotion credit tho.

That's not true as gift cards are treated as cash on Amazon, only promotional credit/discounts are not. Try again and again until you get someone competent.

I have seen that T&C appearing more and more recently (although obviously not seen this specific one). I always assumed it was due to the fact they need/want additional cash in the bank (heading towards year end....?) and gift vouchers simply dont do that - as they already have the cash for them.
The promotion did not allow the purchase of gift cards, but there was no mention of using one for payment. I can’t find the UK terms, but here’s the US one...

Great Amazon's inconsistency can be frustrating or rewarding!
Thank you for posting this, I had forgotten about it and had not received my code either. Spoke with someone on chat and they sorted it out for me.
