Amazon has a new promotion that offers a 50% discount off of the first order using a new business account. This is one of the best Amazon Business offers that we’ve seen, as the maximum discount is $150 (on a $300 order). The offer is targeted and only applicable to the first order after registering a business account, so not all business account holders will be eligible.

The Deal

  • Amazon Business is offering a 50% discount off of the first order using a business account, up to a total discount of $150.
  • Also offers one year free of Business Prime Duo which is an add-on for small business owners already shopping on with an Amazon Prime membership, to add work benefits to their Amazon Business account.
  • If registering for a new account you need to wait 72 hours after registration in order to redeem the coupon (but the discount comes off at checkout, so if you see the $150 off, it’s working)
  • Must register by 9/30 and redeem by 10/30.

Quick Thoughts

This is a nice discount…if you are targeted and can get it to work. Note that it is only valid for the first order on a business account (which is free to create) but the discount won’t work within the first 72 hours of registering a new account. So, if you have a business account, but haven’t yet made an order in it, just use the code and see if it works. Otherwise, open a new business account and wait 72 hours before attempting to redeem the code. Also worth noting, if you add Amazon Business on a Prime account (without registering for Duo), you lose Prime on that account and get a prorated refund.

I don’t have any experience with Business Prime Duo, but from the comments on this DOC post, it sounds like folks were able to register for Duo AND use the promo code.
