One of the biggest perks of Amazon Prime is the shipping options it includes.  Prime members get free two-day shipping on most purchases, but you can also decide if you want to opt for a longer delivery window in order to earn some No-Rush Shipping rewards. If you are not on a time crunch to receive the items you just ordered, this can be a great way to save some money or earn some digital credits to put toward future purchases.

What Is No-Rush Shipping on Amazon?

No-Rush Shipping credits are aimed at Prime members who are willing to wait longer than two days for delivery. If you have an Amazon Prime account and don’t mind your package coming within six business days, you can select that option at checkout and earn some digital rewards. These rewards are posted to your account in the form of credits to be used on future purchases or for discounts on Amazon digital products. 

You can follow these steps to enjoy the rewards of free No-Rush Shipping for Prime members:

  1. Select No-Rush Shipping when you go to checkout.
  2. Get discounts instantly or collect rewards after your order ships.
  3. Enjoy your rewards and put them toward Amazon digital or Prime Video purchases.

Opt Out of 2-Day Shipping To Earn Amazon No-Rush Credits

Though two-day shipping is nice, if you opt for a longer delivery window, you can earn No-Rush credits. These credits will show up in your account once the item you ordered has been shipped, and they will accumulate in your credit balance until you use them. Be aware that credits expire and you can view the expiration dates in your No-Rush Rewards Summary dashboard to be sure to use them while you can.

Final Take To GO 

Amazon No-Rush credits can be a nice way to shave off a few dollars on your next e-book or movie night at home. Two-day delivery is dependable and convenient, but if you can live with getting your package within a week instead, you could rack up some serious credits for your digital purchases.
