Amazon logoAmazon spend £10 on Mastercard, get £5 offCode for items shipped and sold by

Limited codes

MSE UPDATE 10am, Thu 11 Dec: The code has now expired. We hope you managed to get the discount.

Not too taxing, this one but it’s likely to end ANY moment so you’ll need to move fast. If you're spending at least £10 at Amazon for Christmas - we expect a lot of people will be - pay with a Mastercard, enter a special code below and get £5 off. Amazon discounts are rare so this is a cracker. 

Here's how to get it:

  • Choose an eligible item online at Amazon*.
  • It must be sold and fulfilled by Amazon, not a third party seller plus there are a few other exclusions (see below)
  • Select Mastercard from the list of payments
  • Enter the code MCARD5OFF in the ‘Enter a gift card, gift certificate or promotional code’ box
  • You should see the £5 discount in your order summary
  • Delivery's free when you select Super Saver delivery, as long as your total spend is at least £10 (not including the £5 discount). The last order date for Christmas is Tue 16 Dec but we don’t expect the code to last that long
  • If the code doesn't show a discount in your checkout box it likely means the offer has ended. We will be checking and updating this guide hourly from 9am on Wed 10 Dec

The official end date of the code is Wed 31 Dec. However, the T&Cs state the offer will be removed before then if the budget limit is reached. Mastercard won't tell us what the limit is, meaning the code could stop working at any time.

The offer's already proving hugely popular in our forum. To find out what forumites are buying with the code, read our Amazon £5 off £10 spend thread.

There's a maximum of one code per person. It can only be used on items sold and shipped by (not those from third-party sellers). Can't be used on baby formula, digital products, gift cards, and shipping and handling charges.

Amazon logoStudents get Amazon FREE next day del for six months*You must be a UK student aged 18+


Students can get six months' FREE Amazon next day deliveries, (usually £79/year via Prime) when you sign up on this Amazon Student* link trial. After the trial ends, you can get 50% off full Prime membership (£39/year).

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. Details on exactly how to cancel are below in the 'more info' section.

The Amazon Student trial, while giving Amazon Prime free delivery, doesn't give you access to Prime Instant Video and Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. You'll only have access to this once you pay for membership.

Who counts as a student?

You must be a UK student aged 18+, with an 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: 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.

Once you graduate or after four years (whichever's first) the price for Prime will jump to £79/year.

What are the potential savings?

If you're a regular Amazon shopper, the savings can add up. There's no minimum spend for the free delivery with Prime. Next day delivery costs between £3.95 and £7.99. One delivery a week for six months could cost between £100 and £200.

Is it worth paying for Prime?

Amazon Prime isn't usually worth your dough once the trial runs out, unless you're a regular shopper. It's better to be organised and order early.

What do you get with Amazon Prime?

Previously, the good thing about shopping at Amazon was its free home delivery option. But last year it started to charge for items under £10. Although there was a sneaky loophole when you bought a CD or book, that's recently been stopped.

With Amazon Prime you get free unlimited one-day delivery, on most offers, including those under £10. But not everything on the Amazon site is eligible for Prime delivery, so look out when orderingThe main exclusions are items sold via Amazon Market Place.

After the six months, you'll be automatically upgraded to Prime membership (which costs £39 for the year for students), but you can cancel at any time. To do that, just log into your Amazon account, or follow the 'Manage Your Prime Membership' link from the Amazon Student page.

What do you get with Amazon Student?

1) Unlimited one-day delivery on seven million items.
2) Discounted express and evening delivery.
3) Student offers.

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


Buy CDs/vinyl from Amazon and its Autorip service* means you now get the MP3s free. Yet this also works for anything bought since 1999. So know what you are doing and you can recover years worth of music, maybe from CDs you may have lost, damaged or thrown away - or re-download MP3s.

How do I check?

Just check 'your music' in Amazon Cloud Player to see if you have any albums or songs from your past, you can then stream or download your music. Simple.

It can take a while for it to find the music. The biggest musical treasure trove in MSE Towers belonged to MSE Darryl, who had 150 albums going back 13 years, which took 10 minutes to get.

MSE Charlotte says:

We discovered this after I was chatting with MSE Shrey about music storage (we're very interesting) and he told me he recently signed up to Amazon Cloud Player* and found more than 30 albums he'd bought hard copies of years ago.

I asked the rest of the MSE team if they had any music lurking about from their past. To our surprise a load of us did (feel free to judge):

  • MSE Zorica found CDs from her teenage years including Janet Jackson, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pink.
  • MSE Henry found a lot of Brian Eno (very cool).
  • MSE Dan found Vampire Weekend, Radiohead, and Arcade Fire albums. He also got a Bat for Lashes album he bought for his brother, so sort of got two for one.
  • MSE Dan L found The Hobbit soundtrack (snigger).
  • MSE Debs B found a lot of Christmas carols.
  • MSE Darryl found 13 years of music, including the band Da Lata - a (probably) brilliant Afro-Brazilian/London fusion band, as well as 'normal' music such as Portishead, The Streets and The XX.
  • MSE Jenny found the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack.
  • MSE Shrey found lots of Cheryl Cole because he's her greatest fan.
  • MSE Becca found Sugababes, Blondie and Jack Johnson albums, which was lucky because she recently had to throw one out because it was scratched.

Found music you didn't realise you had? Let us know in the Reclaim lost music forum thread.

The odd CD or vinyl album might slip through the net. But Amazon currently has 350,000 titles and is expanding its MP3 collection.

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


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.

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.

More info
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.
use the money mantras

Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!

Skint? ask:
  • Do I need it?
  • Can I afford it?
not skint? ask:
  • Will I use it?
  • Is it worth it?
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.
