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.

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.

Amazon logo£20 off Amazon Prime 1-yr membership*Get Prime for £59 (norm £79). Excludes existing customers


If you sign up via this link to Amazon Prime* before 11.59pm on Fri 18 Nov, you can get a year's subscription for £59 (usually £79). 

This offer is available to anyone who hasn't got Prime right now, even if you've previously had the 30-day free trial or paid membership.

Prime gives you access to Amazon's next-day delivery, TV, film and music streaming service and e-book collection, plus 30-minute early access to its quick-fire 'lightning deals'. For full info on Amazon Prime, see our Amazon guide.

After the year you’ll be automatically enrolled for a year's membership at the normal rate of £79, so diarise to cancel if you don’t want it at that price. Many people have unwittingly had this happen (if that’s you, see our Reclaim £79 Prime guide).

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


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


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).

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.
