The yearly Amazon Prime Day sale is just around the corner now. It's just three weeks away, in fact, and the retailer is already spinning up the hype train with some early bird promotions.

Perhaps the best one yet is the $20 of free credit its offering for customers who purchase more than $75 of P&G branded products. In case you didn't know, these include well-known household brands like Gillette, Bounty, Cascade, and Tide, to name just a few.

OK, so spending $75 to get $20 isn't ideal here - but it's a pretty good rebate when you consider you're essentially getting some free credit on your account for buying essentials you would probably just pick up at the store. We're talking things like toilet roll, diapers, detergent, or beauty products for both sexes. If you're interested, you'll find a full list of brands over at the P&G website.

You've got plenty of options here but you do need to purchase the full $75 worth of goods in one go, so bear that in mind. The Amazon terms and conditions for this promotion specifically states that 'one transaction (is) required to qualify for offer' and it's limited to one rebate per account. As with all Prime Day deals, this promotion is exclusively open to Prime members only,too. On the bright side, you can simply sign up to the retailer's 30-day free trial (opens in new tab) if you've never tried Prime before and be fully eligible.
