Amazon logoTrick to get FREE films and TV for a month*Via Amazon Prime Video. Incl 'Your Name', 'Elf' & more

Ongoing

If you're missing Lovefilm - a service where you used to get DVDs in the post, which was bought by Amazon in 2011, did you know your Prime membership can net you access to free films and TV series via Amazon Prime Video*?

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 Amazon Prime Video?

You can buy or rent titles as well as watch those included free, such as the recently-added 'Your Name'*, the new series of 'The Grand Tour'* and Christmas favourite 'Elf'* on any compatible internet-connected device, eg, games consoles, smart TVs, most smartphones and some set-top boxes. You can only access it in the UK, though - except for selected 'Amazon Originals' titles which you can watch abroad.

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

You can get 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 Video

You can browse the Included with Prime* list and select a title. If the title is available via Prime Video, it will show a cost of £0.00 with the Prime symbol next to it. Once selected, it will appear in your watchlist in the same way as other film/TV purchases.

Amazon logoAmazon Prime Student free for 6 months*Includes free next-day deliveries, video and music streaming

Ongoing

Students can get free Amazon next-day deliveries for six months, plus access to Amazon's Prime Video and Prime Music streaming services (usually £79/year via Prime), by signing up to Amazon Prime 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.

Important: 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.

Prime Student members can also get £10 off a £40 spend at Amazon by entering a unique promo code from their NUS Extra account at the checkout, until 11.59pm on Sun 12 Nov.

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.

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.

Expired Deals

Amazon logoAmazon sub-£10 DVD box sets*Thousands of DVD boxsets, across all genres.

Expired
We've built this special Amazon* link to help you find specific 'box sets under £10' search results. Bargains include Blue Planet 4 disc box set for £7.25, Matrix Trilogy 3-Disc Set for £7.88 and Beethoven 1-3 for £4.50. The are cheap for those titles, but do check MegaShopBot before buying to see if you can beat it.

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

Expired

Enter the code BIGTHANKS online at Amazon* on Thu 25 Jan (from 00.01am to 11.59pm) and you'll get £10 off when you spend £50 or more on selected items.

This is a great discount if you need to buy something from Amazon anyway - but don't let it lure you into shopping you wouldn't have done otherwise.

You can only use the code on items that are dispatched and sold by Amazon (this will be clearly marked on screen), including AmazonFresh, Amazon Pantry and Prime Now. 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, video games, digital products, gift cards, Prime, and delivery charges.

Amazon logoAmazon 'January' sale*Daily deals across most departments

Expired

Website: Amazon*
Start date: It started on Boxing Day and ends on Sun 31 Dec.
Sale amount: Up to 50% off is a fair summary. As with most Amazon sales, Amazon don't give a blanket 'up to' amount. Instead it offers 24-hour 'Deals of the Day' and short-lived 'Lightning Deals' across most departments, including big brands such as Vax, Phillips and Le Creuset.
Likely to boost? As Amazon usually offers one-off deals instead of a blanket discount, it doesn't normally boost its sales.

Amazon logoAmazon 'free' £5 with £20 'Top Up - In Store'*Top up your Amazon account balance at PayPoint locations

Expired

'Amazon Top Up - In Store' is a new service, where you can add funds directly to your normal Amazon account balance at 'PayPoint' tills at over 20,000 UK stores, incl at Co-op, Sainsbury's and newsagents (find your nearest - there's a decent spread nationwide). If you use the service for the first time before Sat 16 Dec, you can get a 'free' £5 credit when you top up £20+.

The normal funds you add are valid for 10 years, and can be used on most items sold by Amazon (not those sold by third party sellers on Amazon) - so this is effectively £5 free credit as long as you'll spend £20 on Amazon in the next decade.

You need to use the free £5 by 11.59pm on Sun 31 Dec - you can redeem it by ticking the 'Use your £5 promotional balance' box at the payment stage. There's no minimum spend and if your purchase is more than £5, you can use the gift card balance towards the rest. 

How do I get the 'free' £5?

While you can obviously top up your balance online as normal, doing it that way will NOT get you this £5 freebie. Instead...

1. You first need to get a barcode online to show at a PayPoint till. Log in, go via this Amazon link* and click 'get your barcode'. If you're using a laptop or computer, you can choose whether you want your barcode sent via text, or to print. If you're on mobile, the barcode will appear onscreen.

2. Go into your local PayPoint store (find your nearest), show your barcode at the till and top up by £20 or more. Amazon says you'll get an email confirming that you've qualified for £5 free credit. The £20 will be added instantly to your top up balance and the £5 credit will be displayed at the checkout for your next qualifying purchase. You're allowed to top up by £5-£250 per transaction.

This is a new Amazon service so you may need to explain what it is to PayPoint store staff. When we tested it, we found that saying to staff it was via PayPoint and showing the barcode meant they were able to assist. If you don't receive £5 credit, contact Amazon's customer service department*.

How are the 20,000+ stores spread nationwide?

Amazon told us the stores are spread 'fairly evenly across regions'. When we checked a variety of postcodes nationwide they all had nearby PayPoint stores. 

Amazon logoAmazon Cyber Monday deals on selected items*Some good deals, but many are being price-matched elsewhere

Expired

Giant e-retailer Amazon* has launched its Cyber Monday deals this morning (Mon 27 Nov), but from what we can see so far, it's largely just an extension of its Black Friday event, with a few different deals thrown in. 

Its 'Cyber Monday' promotion will run until Fri 1 Dec and will have 'Deals Of The Day, which will typically run for 24 hours, alongside some short-lived deals which will have a countdown on screen (don't be sucked in) and long-running deals, which have no set end date. 

Are the deals any good?

All the examples we picked out on Amazon products for the Black Friday weekend below are still available - so it's still pretty good - but it hasn't really ramped up its deals for Cyber Monday. Its headline Cyber Monday deal is the £35.99 Oral-B Smart 4 electric toothbrush, which is its  cheapest-ever price on Amazon and is £13 cheaper than elsewhere.

Amazon isn't always cheapest for every item - so do make sure you do your research before buying. This year we've seen Amazon's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals being matched by other retailers. See the current deals below. 

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 27 Nov)

Below are a few deals we've spotted so far. We've tracked the price using Camelcamelcamel (in brackets) and listed the next cheapest we could find the same item at 08.13am on Mon 27 Nov:

All the deals are subject to stock availability, so may end early if items sell out. Remember, when prices are similar at a couple of retailers, it's worth considering other factors - for example, John Lewis sells electricals with a two-year guarantee at no extra cost.

Important: Don't allow yourself to be taken in by the hype around Cyber Monday and be 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.

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.
