Where Do I Find My Amazon Employee Discount Code?

You can find your Amazon employee discount code over on your Amazon A to Z account. Login to your account like normal. Once you have logged in, click on your profile tab. There, you will see your regular profile information — along with your employee discount code.

You will always be able to find your employee discount code here, so no worries if you forget it or do not immediately write it down. This code is also unique to you, so do not give it away to other people — especially since you can only use your discount on a certain amount or purchases!

Do You Need to Add the Amazon Employee Discount Code at Checkout?

You can add your Amazon employee discount code when you are checking out. First, make sure you have copied your Amazon employee discount code, or that you have it written down and ready to use.

Then, head to check out on your Amazon.com profile. Under the Gift Cards and Promotional Codes section of your checkout page, you can enter your employee discount. Your employee discount will then be automatically added.

Your code will stay attached to your account until you reach the cap. Amazon employees only receive 10% off of their first $1000 on Amazon. Therefore, you’ll get $100 off of $1000. Once you have used up your discount for the year, Amazon will no longer attach your discount.

Why Is My Amazon Employee Discount Code Not Working?

Your Amazon employee discount code may not be working for a variety of reasons. First of all, you can only use your discount after 30 days of working. So, if you were just hired, you’ll need to wait for a month before you can receive this discount.

You may have also already reached your cap. As we’ve mentioned above, you only get 10% off of your first $1000 for the year. Once the year is up, everything will be renewed and you’ll be able to use that 10% discount again.

Your code may also not be working because of some type of logistical issue. If this is the case, getting in touch with Amazon may be your best bet.

What Should I Do if My Amazon Employee Discount Code Is Not Working?

If your Amazon employee discount code is not working — and you have absolutely no idea why — you can always get in contact with Amazon Employee Resource Center. They’ll be able to look at your account and see why this issue exists!

Can I Check My Remaining Amazon Employee Discount Balance?

If you’d like to check your remaining Amazon employee discount balance, you can easily do this by heading over to your Amazon A to Z account! Head to your profile section after you have logged in.

Here, you’ll be able to both see your employee discount code, as well as what your balance is for the rest of the year. Once the year is up, your discount will be renewed and you’ll be able to use it freely once again — until you hit the cap again, that is.
