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

Ongoing

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 .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.

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

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.

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.
