$5.99 Coupon Email Phishing?

From You, I received an odd email telling me to click for a $5.99 xfinity credit. Is this a phishing email or legitimate? And is there another way to redeem it without clicking the link in the email?

Does the return address look like an Xfinty/Comcast address?  See the following Xfinity web sites:

https://customer.xfinity.com/help-and-support/internet/comcast-verified-email

It is not a phishing email - as long as it's verified from Comcast.

When you hover your mouse over the link does the URL show anything other than Comcast/Xfinity in it?
