Buy $500+ in Art (including Photography) get $50 Gift Card via email

If you like to purchase photography as art, the Amazon Art store has a couple of promotions: purchase $500 or more of art in a single order and receive a $50 Amazon Electronic Gift Card as a bonus via email. For first time buyers of Amazon Art, you receive a $25 Amazon Electronic Gift Card when you spend $100 or more in a single order. I don’t know if the promotions are stackable. In the Photography section, they have over 8500 photographs available for sale. I am not an art critic, but I’m pretty sure the United Club Lounge Pass is not art 🙂
