This story is part of Amazon Prime Day 2021, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

Amazon’s big 48-hour Prime Day sale arrives tomorrow. As in most years, we’re expecting to see some very enticing price drops and deals on electronics, small appliances, fitness and athletic gear and more from some of the biggest and best-known brands.  

If you prefer to spend your money on smaller businesses or start-up brands, Amazon has a sweet deal that will land you a little something for nothing: Spend more than $10 at participating Amazon small-business vendors and you’ll be emailed a $10 Amazon credit to spend during the two-day Prime Day sale. Since Prime Day starts tomorrow, these are the final few hours to take advantage of the offer.

Amazon has pulled together a storefront at that highlights the more than 300,000 small businesses in its seller network, including woman-ownedBlack-owned and military family-owned stores. Eligible products can also be found through Amazon’s Handmade and Launchpad collections (basically, the company’s startup-friendly answers to Etsy)

Because this is Amazon, these stores are available via voice shopping, too. Echo owners can say, “Alexa, shop small business,” to find eligible products for the promotion.

Here are some example items that qualify:
