Amazon logoFREE mags and e-books for a month trick*Via new Prime Reading 'borrowing' service

Ongoing

Amazon Prime members can now read selected magazines and e-books for free with its new digital 'borrowing' service, Prime Reading*. It’s available to all Prime members, including those on the free 30-day trial - which is where the trick comes in (see how to get it below).

What is Prime Reading?

It's available for Kindle and Fire tablets and via the Kindle app (iOS and Android). It offers 1,000+ titles on a rotating basis - including books, magazines and comics – which Amazon says will be 'regularly' updated.

‘Borrowing’ basically just means adding the book to your library as though you’d bought it – but it’s only yours for as long as you’re a Prime member (or on a trial). You can borrow up to 10 titles at once per Amazon Prime account (across multiple devices), but if you end your Prime membership, they’ll disappear.

Trick to get it for free if you're not a Prime member

You can grab a free one-month Amazon Prime Trial* (usually £7.99/month or £79/year) if you're a Prime newbie, though a few previous trialists may be offered another trial. To check, log into your Amazon account, follow the link and see if it says "try Amazon Prime free". However, if you don't cancel before the trial ends, Amazon will take £7.99 or £79 from your account, depending on whether you chose to pay monthly or annually - so diarise to cancel if you don't want to continue your membership. See how to cancel in our full Amazon Tips guide.

How to use Prime Reading

To add a book to your library, find the title in the Kindle store or browse the Prime Reading list* (the list can only be viewed by Prime members) and select a title. If the title is available via Prime Reading, it will show a cost of £0.00 with the Prime symbol next to it (see image). Once selected, it will appear in your Kindle library in the same way as other e-book purchases. 

Examples of books included:

  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
  • The Moaning of Life by Karl Pilkington
  • Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
  • Stranger Child by Rachel Abbott
  • Holy Island by LJ Ross

Examples of magazines included:

  • Good Housekeeping
  • Glamour
  • National Geographic
  • Time
  • Vogue
  • Men’s Health
  • Wired

Examples of comics included:

  • Star Wars
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Attack on Titan

Amazon logoStudents get 6mth's free Amazon next day del*Plus video and music streaming. UK students aged 18+

Ongoing

Students can get free Amazon next-day deliveries for six months plus access to Amazon's Prime Video and Prime Music streaming services, 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

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 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.

Amazon logoAmazon £10 off £50 on summer essentials*Flash code valid on fans, BBQs, wellies, sun cream etc

Expired

If you enter the code NOWITSSUMMER online via this specific Amazon* link by 11.59pm on Mon 5 Jun, you can get £10 off when you spend £50 or more on selected 'summer essentials'.

You can only use the code on items available via the link above. Plus you need to select the same delivery speed for all items in the same order.

The code only works 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. 

Tesco Direct logo£5-£20 off games consoles & video games*Via codes at Amazon/Tesco Direct. Gets £260 Nintendo Switch

Expired

If you're in the market for a new games console or games, big online retailers Amazon* and Tesco Direct* both have codes that you can use to get popular products such as a Nintendo Switch console (pre-ordered), best-selling Xbox and PS4 games and the pre-order of Call of Duty WII at market-leading prices.

These codes work on selected gaming – simply enter one of the codes at the online checkout before 11.59pm on Sun 7 May. Below is what discount you can get and the code you'll need to enter, depending on which retailer you're buying from:

Amazon

  • £5 off when you spend between £40 and £74.99 using the code VG5OFF40
  • £10 off when you spend between £75 and £149.99 using the code VG10OFF75
  • £20 off when you spend £150 or more using the code VG20OFF150

Tesco Direct

  • £5 off when you spend between £40 and £74.99 using the code TDX-JHMW
  • £10 off when you spend between £75 and £149.99 using the code TDX-WNFX
  • £20 off when you spend £150 or more using the code TDX-KPYK

What's more, you can use the codes on already discounted items and combine them with offers including two for £40 PS4 and Xbox One games at Tesco Direct (see MSE Jordon's 'Get two best-selling games for £35 or two pre-order games for £70' blog).

What are the best discounts available?

Here’s some of the market-leading deals we found using the codes on Tue 2 May:

  • Nintendo Switch grey console - £259.99 incl free delivery at Tesco Direct* (£279.99 before £20 off code). This is a pre-order, and Tesco Direct expects it to be delivered around Fri 26 May. Next cheapest we found, £279 at Asda.
  • Mix and match two PS4/Xbox games, eg, Assassins Creed, Far Cry - £35 incl free delivery at Tesco Direct* (£40 before £5 off code). Norm £44-£92.
  • Call of Duty WII Xbox One video game pre-order - £41 incl free delivery at Amazon* if you're a Prime member (£48 before £5 off code and £2 automatic Prime discount – see full terms and conditions*), or £43 incl free delivery at Amazon* for non-Prime members and Tesco Direct* (£48 before £5 off code). Next cheapest we found, £44.85 at SimplyGames. Also for PS4 at Amazon* and Tesco Direct*.

Unless otherwise stated, Tesco Direct delivery is £3 or you can collect at a Tesco store for free (find your nearest*).

Don't assume that just because the codes get you up to £20 off, you won't be able to find an item cheaper elsewhere – always compare prices before buying. Stock is limited on some products so go quick if you want something, or it could be game over.

The codes can't be used with any other code, or items sold (and dispatched in Amazon's case) by third parties, and you can only use one code per person.

Just Eat logo£5 Amazon voucher via £20 Just Eat spend*Order via VoucherCodes link to get bonus this weekend

Expired

Until Sun 23 Apr, you can get a free £5 Amazon voucher if you spend £20 on takeaway food at Just Eat. To get it, you'll need to go through VoucherCodes* to order your food – it won't work if you go direct to Just Eat, you must go via VoucherCodes to get the free voucher.

Within six working days of placing your order, you'll get an email containing a £5 Amazon code. If you cancel or return your food, VoucherCodes says you won't receive the code.

You'll need to be spending at least £20 at Just Eat to qualify for the voucher and delivery charges don't count towards this amount. Plus, it's limited to one Amazon voucher per person.

See full T&Cs* on the VoucherCodes website.

Amazon logoAmazon Easter Deals Week sale*Incl 24hr 'Deals of the Day' and quick-fire 'Lightning Deals'

Expired

The giant e-retailer Amazon* is pumping out one-off deals for Easter until Mon 17 Apr.

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). 100s of products will be included but Amazon won't reveal details of the deals in advance.

Is it any good?

Most of the discounts we've seen so far have been market-leading - some just marginally, others by up to 30%. However, don't always assume Amazon is the cheapest - we've found at least one item in the Easter deals sale for the same price elsewhere, and there could be items that aren't market leading (we've seen that in the past), so always do your research before you buy.

What else do I need to know?

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.

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.
