Up to $150 Amazon Move Discount Offer & More
The United States Postal Service has a number of offers for people who change their address. You can do this online or simply go get a moving packet at your local post office. There are sometimes good offers in there including 10% off at Lowe’s. Now though there is a way to get even more deals.
If you start your address change through MyMove.com then you will be eligible to get additional deals in addition to the normal USPS offers. You verify your information and do the actual address change with the USPS, but you start and end at the My Move site. Here is how it works.
Changing Address with My Move
Start at MyMove.com and click “Change Your Address” on the menu bar. You will be redirected to USPS. Once the address change process is complete at USPS you will see the following:
Click “Continue” and you will be redirected back to the My Move website to choose your additional offers.
As you can see, some of the offers are quite good. While USPS gives you 10% off at Lowe’s, My Move also get you 10% off at Home Depot. You also get a $10 off coupon for Lowe’s and of course the biggie is up to $100 off at Amazon. (One person received 15% off up to $150). To continue select the offers you want, click “Get Only Selected” and fill in your information when prompted.
The final step is to confirm your email address to receive the offers. You will receive a confirmation email and you must click “Confirm Your Offers”.
Amazon Offer Terms
About 20 minutes after confirming my email, I received the Amazon code.
Here are the offer terms:
The Offer expires on December 23, 2016. Only those customers with an Amazon.com account who have received a message or notification directly from Amazon referring to this offer are eligible to receive the offer. Offer only applies to products sold by Amazon.com. Offer does not apply to digital content. Amazon reserves the right to modify or cancel the offer at any time, for any reason. Offer is non-transferable and may not be resold. Offer discount will be allocated proportionally among all promotional items in your orders. If any of the promotional items related to this offer are returned, your refund will equal the amount you paid for the item, subject to applicable refund policies. If you violate any of these terms, the offer will be invalid. Offer may not be redeemed for Amazon Gift Cards. Offer limited to one per customer and account. The maximum benefit you may receive from this offer is $100.
For many the idea of changing their address to get coupons probably seems silly. (You are opting in to marketing offers after all.) However if you are a person who would do that, you don’t have to do it forever. I will be traveling soon and was able to temporarily forward my mail through the change of address system. It even let me backdate the change so my mail will only be forwarded to my PO Box for one week. Not bad.
It is important to keep in mind that you also get the normal USPS coupons, so this is a decent deal, especially if you have home improvement projects coming up. For many though the $100-$150 in Amazon discounts will be worth the effort. (And please consider using our Amazon link when shopping!)
I have some home improvement purchases coming up and always find myself shopping at Amazon, so I went ahead and changed my address. Even if you aren’t looking to do it today, keep this site in mind if you are moving in the future since you might as well get the normal USPS offers plus some Amazon love as well!
