Amazon logoReclaim (and listen to) lost Amazon music*Stream old CDs/vinyl or turn them into MP3s for free

Ongoing

Buy CDs or vinyl from Amazon and its Autorip service* lets you stream or download the MP3 version for free, yet this can also apply to music you've bought from Amazon at any time since 1999.

You can potentially recover more than a decade of forgotten music - from CDs you've lost, damaged or thrown away, and MP3s you downloaded that have since been wiped from your electronic devices.

How do I reclaim my old music?

Check your Amazon Music* library to see if you've any past albums available to stream and download. Bear in mind, it can take a while for Autorip to locate your music. It's also worth noting only CDs and vinyl with the Autorip logo displayed alongside them are eligible to be reclaimed.

The biggest musical treasure trove at MSE Towers belonged to MSE Darryl, who had 150 albums going back 13 years - they took about 10 minutes to get.

Success stories from the MSE Forum:

"Wow! 11 albums equating to 118 songs. How fab is that? Thanks MSE" - Elliesmum

"21 albums and 386 songs - brilliant!" - Shezzieh

"Thought this was brilliant, then realised I'd bought the mother-in-law a Susan Boyle CD last year... ugh" - GingerJuice (who clearly got a lot more than they bargained for)

More info

The odd CD or vinyl album might slip through the net. Amazon currently has more than 350,000 titles and is always expanding its collection.

Amazon logoStudents get 6mths free Amazon next day del*UK students aged 18+. Plus NUS Extra card holders get 5% off

Ongoing

Students can get free Amazon next-day deliveries for six months plus access to Amazon's video and music streaming services, Kindle lending library and photo storage, (usually £79/year via Prime) when you sign up to Amazon Student*. After the trial ends, you can get 50% off full Prime membership (£39/year).

Who counts as a student?

You must be a UK student aged 18+, with an .ac.uk email address. Or if you've not got one of those, send an email from the address that's linked to your Amazon account to: amazon-student-verification@amazon.co.uk giving proof of enrolment (see the full T&Cs). Even if you've already had an Amazon Prime or Amazon Family free trial, you can still take up this offer.

While the trial is free, this is a subscription offer, so you'll need to enter card details and diarise to cancel or you'll be charged once the trial ends. There's no obligation to continue with the paid subscription. Once you graduate or after four years (whichever's first) the price for Prime will jump to £79/year. To cancel, go to Manage Your Prime Membership

NUS Extra card holders can get 5% off most products

The reusable code should be valid for 12 months.

Amazon logoFree Amazon Discount Finder toolUse it to uncover Amazon's secret bargain basements

Ongoing

Amazon often offers 75% and better reductions, yet it directs people to other areas, sending them to higher profit margin products instead. This tool manipulates Amazon's web links to display all heavily-reduced bargains.

Go to the Amazon Discount Finder and choose your department.

Next, pick your discount and price range and choose whether you want free delivery.

The tool will then generate a bespoke page full of discounts which fit your search terms.

Though the Amazon Discount Finder is great for finding hidden bargains, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's the cheapest you can get them. Read the Amazon Buying Guide below the tool before buying.

Amazon logoAmazon 'free' £6 with £60 Top Up*Excl those who've bought gift cards in 2 yrs - check your account

Expired

If you've had an Amazon* account since at least Wed 6 Apr 2016, haven't used it to buy gift cards since 6 Apr 2014, and haven't already used Amazon Top Up, you can get a 'free' £6 promo code when you top up £60 before 11.59pm on Sun 24 Apr.

Amazon Top Up credit – where you add funds directly to your own gift card balance - is valid for 10 years, and on most items sold by Amazon, so this is effectively £6 free credit as long as you'll spend £60 on Amazon at some point in the next decade.

You need to use the free £6 by 11.59pm on Sat 11 Jun. It doesn't have a minimum spend, but it can only be used once - so if your purchase is less than £6, you'll lose the remainder. It can only be used on items dispatched and sold by Amazon, not third-party sellers (this will be clearly marked on screen).

How do I get it?

Amazon says you won't be eligible if you've used your account to buy Amazon gift cards between now since 6 Apr 2014 or have already used Amazon Top Up (don't worry if you're not sure - it only takes a minute to check, see how below).

It's only for existing account holders, so you can't set up a new one just to get this deal.

1. Log in and try this Amazon link*

2. Click on the ‘Click to qualify for the promotional code’ button, and if you're eligible it will generate a message in green saying "you have successfully qualified for the promotion code. You can proceed with your purchase." If you're not eligible, there will be a message saying "you are not eligible for this offer".

3. Once qualified, use Amazon Top Up to add £60 to your account. Amazon says it'll email you a £6 promo code within 24 hours after the Top Up has been added.

If it's been longer than 24 hours and you still haven't received a code, you should contact Amazon's customer service department*. When Amazon's run similar offers before, we've heard from a few this has happened to - but Amazon was able to help when they got in touch.

What is Amazon Top Up?

Amazon Top Up enables you to add money to your Amazon account using a credit or debit card, which can then be used as pre-paid credit.

When you top up, your selected amount is added to your 'Gift Card Balance' (go to 'Your Account' and under 'Gift Cards & Top Up', click on 'View Balance') along with any gift cards you've added, and it effectively works like a gift card - it's valid for 10 years from the date it's added and can be spent on most items sold by Amazon, including those sold by Amazon or third-party sellers, but excluding gift cards and Prime subscriptions.

You can add 10p-£1,000 per one-off transaction. Amazon also offers its Auto-Top Up service, where you can schedule an amount to be automatically added on a regular basis, or whenever your balance reaches a certain amount.

How do I use my Amazon Top Up amount?

You'll first need to add your Top Up amount. Then, when you shop at Amazon, the payment method page will give you the option to use your Top Up amount - there'll be a tick box saying 'Use your £xxx Gift card balance'.

Amazon logoAmazon Easter Deals Week sale*Eg, £30 Black + Decker grass strimmer, £35 Vax steam cleaner

Expired

The giant e-retailer Amazon* is pumping out one-off deals for Easter until Thu 24 Mar.

There are two main types of deal: "Deals of the Day", running daily for 24 hours from 00.00am to 11.59pm and "Lightning Deals", posted as often as every 10 minutes and lasting between two and six hours (all subject to availability). Amazon says 1,000s of products will be included but it won't reveal details of the deals in advance.

Keep on top of the latest Amazon deals as they're revealed
During the week we'll be updating here and on Twitter @MSE_Deals and on MSEDeals Facebook with new deals and analysis of how good they are.

All of the discounts we've seen so far have been market-leading - some just marginally, others by more than 40% or 50%. Here are some of the more popular items we've spotted so far, with the next cheapest we could find:

Deals of the day (Thu 24 Mar) 

Lightning deals (Thu 24 Mar) - last updated 11.59am

All the deals are subject to stock availability, so may end early if items sell out. Prime members have first dibs for 30 minutes at the start of some Lightning Deals, which are signposted with "Prime Early Access Deal". 

You can preview some items that will be discounted later online at Amazon* by ticking the 'upcoming' box, which is the bottom tick-box on the left side of the screen. You can't see prices or the level of discount in advance, but you can see the times they'll go live. It's worth jotting down the times of any items you're interested in and the current prices so you can do your research now. 

Amazon logoAmazon 'free' £7 with £30 gift card purchase*Excl those who've bought 'em in 2 yrs - check your account

Expired

If you've had an Amazon* account since at least 20 Dec 2015 and you haven't used it to buy gift cards in the last two years, you can get a 'free' £7 code when buy £30 of Amazon gift cards until 11.59pm on Sat 27 Feb.

As gift cards are valid for 10 years, and on most items sold by Amazon, this is effectively £7 free credit as long as you'll spend £30 on Amazon at some point in the next decade.

You need to use the £7 code by Sat 16 Apr, but it doesn't have a minimum spend.

How do I get it?

Amazon says you won't be eligible if you've used your account to buy Amazon gift cards in the last 24 months (don't worry if you're not sure - it only takes a minute to check, see how below).

It's only for existing account holders, so you can't set up a new one just to get this deal.

1. Log in and try this Amazon link*. Press 'Click to qualify for the promotion code'.

2. From the examples we've seen, those who are eligible are told in green writing: "You have successfully qualified for the promotion code. Proceed to purchasing gift cards."

3. Once qualified, buy £30 of Amazon gift cards. Amazon says it'll email you a £7 promo code within two days of purchase.

If it's been longer than 48 hours and you still haven't received a code, you should contact Amazon's customer service department*. When Amazon's run similar offers before, we've heard from a few this has happened to - but Amazon was able to help when they got in touch.

The code can only be used on items dispatched and sold by Amazon, not third-party sellers (this will be clearly marked on screen). If you want to combine it with the £30 gift cards, you first need to go to 'Your Account' and select 'Apply a Gift Card to Your Account'.

Amazon has offered a free £7 code with £30 of gift cards several times over the past few months, but customers were selected at random - with this deal everyone who is eligible will get the free £7.

Amazon logoAmazon £10 off £50*Flash code valid on items dispatched & sold by Amazon

Expired

Enter the code BIGTHANKS online at Amazon* by 11.59pm on Fri 22 Jan to get £10 off when you spend £50 or more on selected items.

You can only use the code on items that are dispatched and sold by Amazon (this will be clearly marked on screen). If you buy items from Amazon Marketplace's third-party sellers, the code won't work.

When you've found the item(s) you want, click 'add to basket', followed by 'proceed to checkout', where you'll then be able to insert the code - you can't use Amazon's '1-click' ordering method. 

It can only be used once per Amazon account. You can't use it on baby formula, digital products (see 'more info' below for all digital categories excluded), gift cards, and delivery charges.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
