Do you have a couple things lingering in your Amazon cart that you’re not totally ready to commit to? Today just might be the day to spoil yourself.

To celebrate the fact that Amazon got the number-one position in a reputation ranking poll — with a record score of 86.27 — they’re rewarding their customers with a sweet deal. For today only Amazon is offering shoppers $8.63 if they spend $50 or more. All you have to do is enter the code “BIGTHANKS” at checkout. The offer does not apply to Amazon Gift Cards, digital content, or video games.

Here are our thoughts on the best thing you can buy with this deal, and some other suggestions that our readers love.

The Best Thing to Buy: $50 Whole Foods Gift Card

Do you ever shop at Whole Foods? Then this gift card is basically free money. While this offer doesn’t apply to Amazon gift cards, it does work for other gift cards — including ones for Whole Foods. Think of all the chocolate you could buy, or maybe that special soda you’ve been eyeing. Or, you know, produce for dinner. That works too.

Need some more ideas to get you to (and way over) that $50 minimum? We have some suggestions that we know our readers love.
