  • Are you an Amazon Prime member? This month, you can get early access to two 'free' not-yet-released Kindle e-books from a selection of nine 'top picks', normally up to £3.29 each. Amazon 'First Reads' is an ongoing scheme, but the allowance is usually one e-book per month. Log into your Amazon* account, pick the titles that appeal to you, and click 'Buy it now for £0.00'.

    A Kindle isn't necessary to download the e-books, you can download the free Kindle app to read on your phone, tablet, or other compatible device instead. Once downloaded, the e-books are yours to keep. Both new and existing First Reads subscribers are eligible for this offer.

    Below are some of October's picks.



    Bookworms, did you know that Prime members can also access 1,000+ digital titles for free through Prime Reading? Find out about this and more in our MoneySaving tricks to get must-read Kindle books for FREE (or just 99p) guide.

    Got an Amazon account but not a Prime membership?

    Sign up for a free 30-day Prime trial this month and take advantage of the two free e-books offer. Don't forget to cancel before the 30 days are up if you don't want to be charged for the following month. Alternatively, you can subscribe to the First Reads newsletter and pick two books for 99p each, so you'll still make a saving.

    MSE LAURA F says:

    If you're not familiar with Amazon First Reads, here's the score.

    At the start of each month, Amazon First Reads announces eight or nine book titles, specially picked by editors, from which Prime members can choose one free download. The special part is that these are unreleased books, which aren't officially available to the public for another month.

    If you don't have Amazon Prime you can still claim one 'First Read' book a month for 99p by subscribing to the Amazon First Reads* newsletter - click the link at the top of the page.

  • If you go via this Amazon* link, you can find totally free comic books and graphic novels to download for your Kindle. The link will take you to the 'Top 100 Free' in the Comic Book & Graphic Novels section, where there are many popular comics and TV show-turned-graphic novels.

    These aren't the only free ones though, and you can view the full selection* via this link, including new releases for Comic Book Day (2 May).

    We've asked Amazon for more information on how long these popular books will be free, but we've yet to hear back, so if there's something that catches your eye, download it quickly as prices may change. We'll let you know here as soon as we know more.

    Top titles we spotted on Tue 4 Jun include:

    If comic books aren't your thing, there are free Kindle books in other genres too (see Top 100 Free Kindle books* on Amazon). You can also check out our top 10 novel MoneySaving tricks to get must-read Kindle books for FREE (or just 99p).

  • Students can get free Amazon Prime for six months, which includes next-day deliveries plus access to Amazon's video and music streaming services, Kindle lending library and photo storage (usually £7.99 a month for non-students) when you sign up to Amazon Student*. After the trial ends, you can get 50% off full Prime membership (£3.99 a month).

    How do you sign up for Amazon Student?

    You must be a UK student aged 18+, with a .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 terms and conditions). 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 £7.99 a month. To cancel, go to Your Prime Membership

  • 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 gets 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 TV shows The Grand Tour*, Vikings* and Lucifer*, and movies such as Gone Girl*, Inception* and Your Name* 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 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 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
  • Want to party like it's 1999? Turns out you can! Amazon's Autorip service* lets you stream or download the MP3 version of many physical CDs or vinyl you buy, for free - yet this can also apply to music you've bought from Amazon at any time since 1999.

    You can potentially recover 21 years of forgotten music - from CDs you've lost, damaged or thrown away, and MP3s you downloaded that have since been wiped from your 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 which were sold and dispatched by Amazon, and have the Autorip logo displayed alongside them are eligible to be reclaimed.

    The biggest musical treasure trove at MSE belonged to former MSE staffer 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... ugh" - GingerJuice (who clearly got a lot more than they bargained for)

    To explore new music as well as old, you might like to take up a free three-month trial of Deezer Premium.

    • 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.

  • 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 00.01am 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, 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*.

Latest Expired Deals

  • Amazon Prime Day 2020

    Amazon Prime Day 2020

    Incl up to 50% off Echo devices, up to 34% off Fitbits, 20% off Amazon Warehouse

    Update 8.14am Wed 14 Oct: These deals have been really popular and some of the Amazon Devices are running low in stock. The deals below are still available at the Prime Day prices, but may take a few weeks to be delivered.

    Amazon is pumping out thousands of deals until 11.59pm on Wed 14 Oct for its annual Prime Day* event. It normally happens in July, but was pushed back because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    As the name suggests, it's only for Amazon Prime customers, but if you don't have Prime, there's a way to access the deals for free if you've never had a trial before.

    Amazon Warehouse has an extra 20% off on selected pre-owned or mildly damaged items until 11.59pm on Wed 14 Oct for Prime members. See how it works, and previous bargains we’ve spotted in our Amazon Warehouse guide.

    Are the Prime Day 2020 deals any good?

    Amazon doesn't reveal all of its Prime Day deals at launch, and some are only available for a limited time during the promotion, but we're analysing how good they are as soon as they're posted. Offers include 'up to 40% off' Tefal cookware, 'up to 35% off' SanDisk memory storage, 'up to 30% off' Bose headphones and as we predicted, 'up to 34% off' Fitbits.

    Here are some of the deals we've spotted so far – we've tracked the price using the Amazon price tracker Camelcamelcamel and listed the next cheapest we could find elsewhere.

    Don't assume every deal will be a winner though – while there are strong deals, there are also some duds. Most of the duds we’ve come across this year tend to be across Sports, Shoes, Music, Clothing and Beauty categories. So if you’re planning to buy something that falls under these, it may be worth double checking other retailers before buying to make sure you’re getting the best deal. For example, we spotted some L'Oreal Men Expert Pure Charcoal face wash* for £3.09 as a Prime Deal day, but it was £2.50 in Sep 2020 and even cheaper at £2.12 in June 2020.

    Deals spotted at 1.26pm on Wed 13 Oct:

    Amazon Devices

    • Echo Dot (3rd gen)* – £18.99 (was £29.99, reduced from £49.99). Cheapest ever price at Amazon. Next cheapest, £29 at AO.com. 
    • Echo Auto* – £29.99 (was £49.99). Cheapest ever price at Amazon. Next cheapest, £49.99 at Argos.

    Kids

    Duds (deals that were cheaper earlier this year):

    Some deals last for the duration of the promotion, some last for 24 hours, and others – 'Lightning Deals' – are launched as often as every five minutes and last for a limited time. 

    As part of its Prime Day promo, Amazon is also offering a free £30 gift card for Prime members who take out its rewards credit card. For full info see our Credit Card Rewards guide.

    Important: Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the hype and sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. Always do your own price comparisons to ensure you're getting the best deal possible.

    How to get access to Prime deals for free

    Prime Day is aimed solely at those with an Amazon Prime membership (next-day delivery plus other perks), which normally costs £79 a year or £7.99 a month.

    However, if you've not had an Amazon Prime account before, sign up to its free 30-day trial* and you'll be eligible for Prime Day deals. Just make sure you cancel before the trial is over if you don't want to continue membership (set yourself a reminder), otherwise you'll be charged. Students get six months' free Prime and 50% off full membership.

    How to work out if it's a good deal

    Amazon's not always cheapest for every item – so do your research before buying. If there's a product you're looking for, use 'shopbot' comparison tools such as Google Shopping and Price Spy to find its cheapest online price. However, shopbots can leave out or favour some retailers.

    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 – that way you’ll see if it's actually a deal at all.

    Also look out for price-matching from retailers such as AO.com, Argos, Currys and John Lewis, who may offer free extras such as a longer guarantee on some products.

    Alternative deals from rivals

    While Prime Day is Amazon's big marketing event, we tend to see other brands and retailers offer rival deals.

    Google is Amazon's big rival in the smart speaker space, and right now its voice-activated devices are on offer until Wed 14 Oct, which – likely by no coincidence – is also when Prime Day ends. Here's what you can get...

    • Google Nest Hub – £49.99 (norm £79.99) at Google
    • Google Nest Max – £179 (norm £219) at Google.
    • Google Home Max – £199 (norm £299) at Google.

    We'll update here with other top alternative deals we spot.

    • Deals on Amazon services including Music and Kindle Unlimited

      Amazon has a selection of promotions on its music and digital books services that you can snap up this Prime Day, including:

       

  • Amazon 'end of summer sale' – how good is it?

    Amazon 'end of summer sale' – how good is it?

    Incl £60 Echo Plus speaker (RRP £140), £95 Fire HD 8" kids edition tablet (RRP £140)

    Amazon is pumping out thousands of flash deals* until 11.59pm on Tue 1 Sep for its 'end of summer sale' which began on Mon 24 Aug.

    Some deals will last for the duration of the promotion (Amazon device deals are extended till 9am on Wed 2 Sep), some offers for only a day, and others – 'Lightning deals' – are posted as often as every five minutes and last for several hours, depending on stock.

    Important: Don’t allow yourself to be sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. Always do your own price comparisons to ensure you're getting the best deal (see how to work out if it's a good deal below) – don’t just take Amazon's word for it.

    How good are the deals?

    So far, it’s a mixed bag. Some products, eg, the Echo Plus speaker and Fire HD 8” kids edition tablet are the cheapest we’ve seen them, while others such as the Echo Dot speaker were cheaper during Amazon’s ‘summer sale’ week in mid-July, and during Black Friday last year. Some products are also being price-matched at other retailers such as Currys.

    Here are some examples of popular items in the sale, last checked at 8.56am on Wed 26 Aug:

    How to work out if it's a good deal

    Amazon's not always cheapest for every item, so do your research before buying.

    • If there's an item you're looking for, use a 'shopbot' comparison tool such as Google ShoppingPrice Spy, and Pricerunner to find its cheapest online price. However, shopbots can leave out or favour some retailers.
    • Look out for potential price-matching from retailers such as Argos, Currys and John Lewis, who may offer a longer guarantee on some products for free.
    • 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 – that way you’ll see if it is actually a deal at all.
