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

15 days left

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

Kindle logoKindle Fire HD 7" refurb £75 (full-price £149)*Get £34 off voucher from Amazon Local Deals. Previous generation model

Expired

MSE UPDATE 4pm, Thu 19 Jun: The 2,500 vouchers have now run out, so you can no longer get one. If you got a voucher but haven't redeemed it yet, you'll still be able to do so until 11.59pm, Mon 7 Jul.

To get this deal, you first need to get a free £34 off voucher from Amazon Local Deals*. There are 2,500 of these vouchers available until 11.59pm on Mon 7 Jul.

The voucher will be added to your Amazon account and will knock £34 off a refurbished Kindle Fire HD*, making it £75 rather than the usual £109. You have until 11.59pm Mon 7 Jul to redeem your voucher.

A full-price Kindle Fire HD would set you back £149, but this one's usually £109. So, you're saving £30 because this is a refurbished model and then a further £34 with this voucher.

It's important you don't place your order until you've had an email from Amazon Local Deals confirming the £34 voucher has been applied to your Amazon account.

The model is a 32GB 7" previous generation Kindle Fire HD, released at the end of 2012. A newer edition of the tablet was released in late 2013, so this isn't the latest version on the market. But it's still a great price.

What does "refurbished" mean?

We asked Amazon and it said it's a "pre-owned Kindle that has been refurbished, tested and certified to look and work like new, unless otherwise noted on the product detail page". Amazon will also repackage it in a new box. For full info for the tests Amazon does on refurbs, see 'more info' below.

Our experience of refurb items is generally good, whether they be phones, tablets or e-readers. MSE Deborah says: "I owned a refurbished Kindle and couldn't tell the difference at all. It looked brand new and worked brilliantly for two years (until my sister sat on it on holiday and broke it)."

It's worth noting with refurbs, you won't get the quick start guide that's available with a brand new one. Read here for full refurb info.

What warranty do I get?

You'll get a limited warranty of one year, covering defects in materials and workmanship under ordinary consumer use. Read here for full info on the Kindle one-year limited warranty. You're also entitled to the same 30-day returns policy as a new Kindle. Read the Kindle returns policy.

More info

One voucher per person. The offer can't be combined with any other offers or promotions. Valid off Kindle Fire only.

The tests Amazon conducts on refurbished Kindles include:

  • Full diagnostic test
  • Replacement of any defective parts identified in testing
  • Thorough cleaning and inspection process
  • Complete repackaging with a new box
  • Most recent software version update available for the product installed.
  • Final QA inspection before acceptance as Certified Refurbished stock

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.
