If you’re an Amazon employee, there’s a lot you should know about your employee discount. Can you share it? Or should you only use it yourself? Keep reading to find out!
Amazon does not recommend you to share your Amazon employee discount with your friends. Employee discounts can only be applied to one Amazon account to keep this from happening. Plus, you only have 10% off your first $1000 spent. Therefore, you really shouldn’t share your discount code with others.
There’s so much more you should know about potentially sharing your Amazon employee discount. Below, we explain everything in detail!
Amazon does not want you to use your Amazon employee discount for a friend. Because you only get a discount on a certain amount spent on Amazon.com, you really shouldn’t share your discount with others, as then you won’t get to use it yourself.
Amazon, along with so many other companies, only wants their employees to use their employee discount. When you receive your employee discount, this is often agreed upon. Therefore, you should only use your discount on your own purchases.
Amazon likely won’t care if your immediate family — those that live in your household with you — uses your employee discount. For example, if you and your spouse use the same Amazon account, this won’t be an issue.
However, your employee discount cannot be shared on various Amazon accounts. It can only be added to one. Therefore, you should not put your employee discount on your spouse’s account first. Put it on your own instead!
Amazon doesn’t want you to share your employee discount with other family members, such as siblings, cousins, or grandparents. Again, you likely won’t have an issue if only immediate (spouses, kids, etc) use your employee discount on your account.
But don’t share it with others! Remember, you only get 10% off of your first $1000. You don’t want others to use up all of your discount before you really get to use it!
Will I Get Fired From Amazon for Sharing My Employee Discount?
As Amazon does not want you to share your employee discount, you could always run the risk of potentially getting fired if you do share you employee discount with others. This is against company policy and could result in you, at the very least, being written up.
Therefore, you really shouldn’t share your employee discount with friends. Those who share you paycheck, such as spouses or kids, can often be exceptions to this rule — but nobody else is an exception.
While it is not necessarily illegal to share your Amazon employee discount, it is against company policy. Because it’s against policy, you can be written up or even fired if you continue to ignore this Amazon policy.
Amazon only wants you to use your employee discount on your Amazon account. Once you add your discount to an Amazon account, it would forever be associated with this account. Therefore, you’ll want to ensure you only adding this discount to your account.
If you have a friend’s employee discount and you have attached it to your account already, you can’t necessarily take this off yourself. Instead, the Amazon employee will likely only be able to do this by getting in contact with Amazon’s Employee Resource Center and learning what the next step is.
As this is against company policy, reparations may be made. Therefore, you really shouldn’t share your employee discount in any way! Only attach it to your account!
Amazon doesn’t have a regular friends and family discount code. The only discount code Amazon offers is to their employees. This 10% discount can be used on any Amazon purchase, as long as the items are sold and shipped by Amazon. It should not be shared with friends.
While it is not necessarily illegal to resell things you bought with your employee discount to sell them at a profit, it isn’t recommended. Amazon’s employee policy doesn’t want you to misuse your discount in any way. This would be misusing your employee discount.
As a result, Amazon could act in a variety of different ways if they find out what you are doing. They could decide to write you up or even fire you for this breach of policy.
