(Spelled Amaz0n to avoid linking because it adds extra space and does not look right.)

Over the years I have collected a few Amaz0n links that may not be obvious from the Your Account level. I am curious what others have you collected?

Press Releases (sometimes it's easier to just go to the source)
http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=176060&p=irol-news&nyo=0 

Amaz0n likes to aggregate reviews for multiple products. To only see reviews for the one product you are looking at, click on "XXX customer reviews" right below product title, then the XXX under "Customer reviews".
Click on "All formats" drop down, and select "Show only reviews for <one product>".

Amazon donates to the community (Pre set by member)
https://smile.amazon.com

5% of most sales goes to the charity of your choice (usually a local school)
Erp 0.5%, as I am not on the 'getting' end of the charity, I never noticed.

All the videos that were priced at zero in OP links were behind the scenes. There have been in the past some full length videos at $00.00.

Past freebie full length videos have included Men of Honor, Man on Fire and an edited version of Red Tails.

  There are versions of this for the friends of our town library and the American Red Cross as examples

Prime Pantry Rewards
Use your Prime Pantry rewards toward everyday essentials in everyday sizes conveniently delivered to your door. Limit one $5 reward per order.

What's the best cash out option?

rated:
There isn't really.
1) Prime Pantry awards are usually given out in $5 increments
2) There's a shipping fee on most items. (Which is $5.99)

 They also have a sub-list of selected products that earns free shipping on your entire pantry order when you add 5 of those items to your order.

  He asked for a 'cash out option'.  There is a path to get some free items that they want you to buy but that's about it.

 Agreed. Just noting that there is a way to avoid shipping fees/make that a non-factor.

In general, I find pantry items to be way over priced and the foods are almost universally junk foods/unhealthy. Even if you use pantry coupons, the free shipping option, and the $5 slow shipping credit, it's a time drain trying to pull together an order (with low prices on items in your cart often increasing substantially while you're trying to find other stuff that you actually need). I've had at least 4 pantry credits expire before I could pull together an order that contained decent deals, let alone hot or good deals... what a waste of time... over and over again. I only managed it once, getting some really excellent deals (though none of the items were free), but again, it took sooooo long to pull that off.

I'm never ever choosing the pantry slow shipping again. They can spend a premium sending me my stuff in two days since I'm paying for that service (though that quietly changed to 3-4 day shipping on most orders a year or so ago), or give me a $1 digital credit.

I'll settle for a path to get some free items. Best way to find/sort?

How about finding a link or anyway to get US based customer service when you have a problem with an Amazon provided purchase?
All phone call service seems go to India where they read a strict script and are unable to assist on non-routine issues.

I've gotten lucky a copy of times and went straight to US CS, but I Don't think there is a direct way.

BTW There is a sticky for Amazon's phone number in the DD forum.
