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 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.

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


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)

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


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


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*.

Amazon logoAmazon £10 off £50*Flash code valid on items dispatched & sold by Amazon


Enter the code BIGTHANKS online at Amazon* by 11.59pm on Fri 20 Jan to get £10 off when you spend £50 or more on selected items.

You can only use the code 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. You can't use it on baby formula, digital products (see 'more info' below for all digital categories excluded), alcoholic drinks, gift cards, and delivery charges.

Digital products not included:

Audible, digital documents, digital video download, digital music service, digital ebook purchase, digital software, digital video games and mobile apps.

Amazon logoAmazon 'January sale'*Running daily deals across most departments


Website: Amazon*
Find your nearest: Online only
Start date (online): Started on Boxing Day
Sale amount: From what we can tell, 'up to 50% off' is a fair summary. However, like last year, Amazon aren't giving a blanket 'up to' amount - instead it's offering 24-hour 'Deals of the Day' and four-hour quick-fire 'Lightning Deals' across most departments. 
Likely to boost? Because Amazon offers deals instead of a blanket discount, the sale is unlikely to be boosted.

Examples of strong discounts we found at 8.43am on Wed 28 Dec:

Remember, a lot of Amazon's deals are short-lived - so go quick if there's something you're after.

Amazon logoAmazon 'free' £6 with £40 gift card purchase*Excl those who've bought 'em in 2 yrs - check your account


If you've got an Amazon* account, you may be able to get a 'free' £6 promo code when you buy £40 of Amazon gift cards until 11.59pm on Sun 18 Dec.

As gift cards - both physical and digital - are valid for 10 years, and on most items sold by Amazon, this is effectively £6 free credit as long as you'll spend £40 on Amazon at some point in the next decade. It's also worth noting that Amazon gift cards come with free one-day delivery - handy for a last-minute Christmas gift.

You need to use the £6 code by 6 Feb 2017. It can only be used on items dispatched and sold by Amazon, not third-party sellers (this will be clearly marked on screen).

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 five of the 15 people we asked (who hadn't bought gift cards in the last two years) were eligible for the offer, so it's 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 £40 of gift card and get a £6 promo code for your next order". To get the offer, you'll then need to click the 'Click to qualify for the promo 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 £40 of Amazon gift cards in a single purchase. Amazon says the £6 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 that if you opt to schedule your gift card delivery for specific date, it needs to be before Fri 23 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.

The £6 code doesn't have a minimum spend but is single-use only, so if you buy something for less than £6, you'll lose the remainder. Also, bear in mind that Amazon's free standard delivery is for £10+ spends on books and £20+ spends on everything else. If you want to combine the £6 code with the £40 gift cards, you first need to go to add the gift cards during the checkout stage or go to 'Your Account' and select 'Apply a Gift Card to Your Account'.

Amazon logoAmazon Black Friday sale*It's losing the price war to John Lewis for some top items


Giant e-retailer Amazon* is pumping out deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with new offers appearing at regular intervals until Sun 4 Dec.

There are two types of deals: offers without an end date and "Lightning Deals" (with a countdown timer), posted as often as every five minutes, both subject to availability.

Amazon won't reveal details in advance, but we'll be updating this article and on Twitter @MSE_Deals and MSE Deals on Facebook with our analysis.

Are they any good?

Amazon's not always cheapest for every item - so ALWAYS do your research before buying. So far we've seen a lot of Amazon's Black Friday deals being matched by other retailers. See the current deals below, where we separate what's hot from what's not.

Amazon prices go up and down regularly, so it's also worth checking if a price is at its lowest, using the Amazon price tracker Camelcamelcamel.

Current deals (Mon 28 Nov)

Here are some of the deals we've spotted so far - we've tracked the price using Camelcamelcamel in brackets and listed the next cheapest we could find, when we last checked at 10.29am on Mon 28 Nov.

Not so hot deals

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, as it's likely stock will be limited and you'll have to go quick.

Important: Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the hype around Black Friday and sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. And always do your own price comparisons to ensure you are getting the best deal possible – don’t just take a retailer’s word for it.

For the rest of our Black Friday deals and analysis, see our Black Friday 2016 Deals page.

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.
