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

Till 30 Nov

If you've got an Amazon account, you may be able to get a 'free' £7 promo code when you buy £30 of Amazon gift cards until 11.59pm on Wed 30 Nov.

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 15 Jan 2017, but it doesn't have a minimum spend. 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'.

How do I know if I'm eligible?

Amazon says this offer is available to a random selection of its customers, who haven't purchased Amazon gift cards in the last two years (don't worry if you're not sure - it only takes a minute to check, see how below).

We did a quick poll at MSE Towers, and 12 of the 14 people we asked (who hadn't bought gift cards in the last two years) were eligible for the offer, so it's definitely worth checking.

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. If you're eligible, it will say "Buy a £30 Amazon.co.uk gift card and get a £7 promo code for your next order". To get the offer, you'll then need to click the 'Click to qualify for the promotion code' button, before purchasing your gift cards. If you're not eligible, there will be a message saying "Unfortunately, you are not eligible for this offer".

3. Once qualified, buy £30 of Amazon gift cards in a single purchase. Amazon says the £7 promo code will be automatically applied to your account and it'll confirm this via email within two days after the gift cards have been dispatched. It's worth noting, if you choose to send the gift cards to someone else, you'll need to schedule the delivery before Thu 1 Dec.

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.

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 17 years 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 6mth's 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

If you're an Amazon Student member and you have an NUS Extra card, you can get 5% off most Amazon products (excluding Kindle devices, MP3 and Amazon Instant Video). To get the discount, log in via the NUS website for a personal promotional code, then paste into the gift voucher code box on Amazon every time you order. 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: MoneySaving tips and tricks*Incl one-off deals and 75%+ off bargains

Ongoing

There are always ways to save money at Amazon*, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.

Ways to save include:

  • Daily deals. Amazon offers two types of one-off deals: "Deals of the Day", running daily for 24 hours from 00.00am to 11.59pm and "Lightning Deals", posted as often as every 15 minutes and lasting between two and six hours. We'll be updating this article and on Twitter @MSE_Deals with Amazon's strong one-off deals, especially over Black Friday and Amazon's flash sale events.

  • 75%+ off bargains. Check our Amazon Discount Finder tool to find Amazon's secret price reductions.

  • Check out similar retailers, eg, Rakuten and any other major retailers that sell what you're looking for. If you're not committed to buying from Amazon, check out our deals from Rakuten, Argos, John Lewis, Currys, and Toys 'R' Us, where there may be a better offer.

  • Want more? Check out our 22 Amazon Buying Tips.

  • Had a problem with Amazon? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Amazon*.

If you spot any hot deals out there we have missed (we are human after all!), please let us know on on Twitter @MSE_Deals, via MSE Facebook or by emailing msedeals@moneysavingexpert.com.

Amex logoAmerican Express: £5 off £20 AmazonPlatinum Cashback & Platinum Cashback Everyday cards

Expired

American Express regularly releases a new set of cashback offers when you spend a set amount at certain stores.

You can use these offers alongside discount vouchers, or in a sale, to maximise the savings. Plus, if you've got an Amex cashback card, you get your normal level of cashback as well.

£5 off £20 at Amazon

Until Tue 20 Sep, American Express Platinum Cashback cardholders can get £5 cashback on a £20 spend at Amazon when they save the offer to their card. It's not valid to other American Express cardholders.

What's more, Amex has confirmed that you can get this offer when buying an Amazon gift card. As gift cards are valid for 10 years, and on most items sold by Amazon, this is effectively a free £5 as long as you'll spend £20 on Amazon at some point in the next decade.

The offer's only available to the first 140,000 cardholders to add the offer to their cards (see how below), so you'll need to go quick if you want this offer.

How it works

  • Log in to your account. Log in online at American Express or via the Amex app.
  • Go to the 'Offers' section. Choose the offer and save it to your card. You must pre-select the offer online before you shop. It's valid once per card.
  • Visit Amazon and shop!  Pay with your connected card online to redeem the offer. You don’t need a code or a voucher.

Once you've redeemed an offer, you'll have to wait for the cash. It should appear as a credit to your card between three and five days after payment, but could take up to eight weeks to appear in your account.

It's worth noting that once the offer has been redeemed the maximum number of times, it will disappear from the site. See the full T&Cs.

What if I don't have an Amex card?

If you don't have an American Express card, in theory you could get one to access these deals, but consider first if a credit card is right for you. Read MSE's Credit Cards section for full info. If you do go for it, it'll take around two weeks for your application to be processed and for you to receive your card. Use our credit card eligibility checker to see if you'll be accepted first.

Harry Potter logoCheapest 'Harry Potter & Cursed Child' book*£10 at Tesco Direct, Amazon, Waterstones & more

Expired

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts 1 & 2With just over a week to go until Harry Potter & The Cursed Child: Parts 1 & 2 officially opens in London's West End, there's still time to pre-order a copy of the 350-page script book from the play by Jack Thorne (based on an original story by Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling).

It'll likely to be popular, so pre-ordering makes sense if you want to read it as soon as it's released (Sun 31 Jul - Harry's birthday). Prices range from £10-£20, so we've rounded up the cheapest places to get it below.

Cheapest places to pre-order the Cursed Child script book:

Tesco Direct* £10, free delivery. Plus, you can earn an extra 100 Clubcard points (worth £1 at Tesco, or up to £4 in vouchers and days out - see Clubcard Boost) until Mon 25 Jul.

Amazon* £10, free delivery. Or £9.99 for the Kindle Edition* (e-book).

Smyths Toys* £9.99, delivery £2.99 or collect from a store for free (find your nearest*).

Waterstones* £10, delivery £2.75 or collect from a store for free (find your nearest*).

WHSmith* £10, delivery £2.99 or collect from a store for free (find your nearest*).

When pre-ordering, items are usually delivered on - or just after, but rarely before - the release date. In this case, 31 Jul (though as that's a Sunday, you may have to wait an extra day).

Amazon logoAmazon FLASH 'Prime Day' discounts*Incl £20 Fire TV stick, £72 Vax vacuum, £210 Xbox bundle

Expired

Online retail giant Amazon* is pumping out one-off flash deals for one day only until 11.59pm TONIGHT across electronics, entertainment, health and beauty, watches, jewellery and more in its second annual 'Prime Day' promotion. 

It's aimed at its £79-a-year Amazon Prime customers (who get next-day delivery and access to its video and music service), but if you don’t have Prime, you can get access for free by signing up to its free trial (see below for more).

How it works

There are two types of Prime Day* offers – ‘Deals of the Day’, lasting until 11.59pm tonight (subject to stock) and ‘Lightning Deals’, posted as often as every five minutes and lasting for a few hours only (or until stock has run out).

We're looking into the quick-fire deals now, to see if they're any good and we'll be updating any decent deals here and on Twitter @MSE_Deals as we get more information throughout the day.

You can preview some items that will be discounted later on via the link above. 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, as it's likely stock will be limited and you'll have to go quick. 

Lightning Deals - last updated 6.43pm

Here are some of the better deals we've spotted so far:

Deals of the Day

These offers last until 11.59pm tonight, subject to stock:

'Free' £5 with £30 gift card purchase

If you're an Amazon Prime member (including those on a free trial), then buy a £30 Amazon gift card through its site on Tue 12 Jul and you'll get a £5 promotional code. You need to visit this Amazon 'Prime Day' offer* link and click the button 'Click to qualify for the promo code' before you buy your gift card. The £5 has to be spent on products sold by Amazon (not third parties) and is valid until Sat 27 Aug. See full Amazon terms and conditions*.

How to access the deals for free

There's a way to get access to Prime Day deals and not have to fork out £79 for a Prime subscription. Amazon has confirmed that anyone who signs up to Prime today, including the free 30-day trial*, will be eligible for Prime Day deals.

However, if you fail to cancel before the trial is over (set yourself a reminder), you'll be charged the £79 annual fee. To cancel the trial, go via this link* and click ‘Do not continue’.

If you’ve had an Amazon Prime 30-day free trial before, unfortunately you can't use the same account to sign up again.

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.
