Or even multiple $5s and $10s? Check this out. Both you and your friend can score $5 each for using the Amazon Shopping App (for the first time) or $10 each for joining the free Amazon Student.

How to make money on Amazon and get the free $5 for you and friend on the Amazon Shopping App
“Invite your friends to use the Amazon Shopping App. We will give your friends a $5 coupon to shop at Amazon. We will also give you a $5 coupon, when your friends make their first purchase in the app (currently in US only).”
Amazon Invite Friends $5 Reward Instructions
- From your mobile device open the Amazon Shopping App. If you don’t already have it, get the Amazon Shopping App here.
- Open the menu by clicking on the three lines at the top left corner.
- Choose “Your Account” then Personalized Content: “Invite Friends”.
- From here, you can invite friends from your contact list or send them a code through text social media, email, and more.

Note: Your friends will have to open your Amazon referral link from a mobile device, not a computer.
