  • 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.

Once selected, it will appear in your Kindle library in the same way as other e-book purchases.

  • 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.

Latest Expired Deals

  • Amazon Warehouse Black Friday extra 20% off

    Amazon Warehouse Black Friday extra 20% off

    Over 10,000 items included, but not as strong a discount as we've seen from it previously

    Expired

    You can get an extra 20% off selected products at Amazon Warehouse* until 11.59pm on Mon 29 Nov, as part of its Black Friday event. This section of Amazon's site offers returned items or mildly-damaged products for knock-down prices.

    The extra 20% off is valid on over 10,000 items and the discount will be applied automatically at the checkout. Products included in the promotion are clearly marked with 'save 20% at checkout'.

    Sadly, this isn't as strong a discount as it offered last year for Black Friday (that was an extra 30% off over 30,000 items) and we have seen it offer bigger discounts earlier in the year. But it's still worth having a look to see if you can get something you were planning to buy now anyway, for much cheaper

    For full info on how this section of Amazon's site works, see our Amazon Warehouse blog.

    Important: Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the hype around Black Friday and be sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. 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.

  • Amazon Echo Black Friday deals

    Amazon Echo Black Friday deals

    Once again offering the cheapest ever Echo Dot (3rd Gen)

    Expired

    Amazon Echo devices remain a popular gift choice for the tech-savvy person in your life. The best discounts on Amazon devices can usually be found, surprisingly (or not) on Black Friday, or Prime Day.

    Amazon launched its Black Friday deals on Mon 8 Nov, so price and availability can vary. If you're after a particular colour, you might need to check several retailers for the best price.

    Last year, Amazon offered the cheapest ever Echo Dot (3rd Gen), and this year we've once again seen it the cheapest it's ever been.

    Here's where we found the cheapest Echo Devices at 10.54am on Mon 29 Nov:

    • Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - £18.95 (was £39.99) at Tesco* with a Tesco Clubcard OUT OF STOCK. The next cheapest we found was £18.99 at Amazon*, Argos*Currys*, and John Lewis*. When you purchase from John Lewis you get a free two-year warranty.
    • Echo Dot (4th Gen) - £28.99 (was £49.99) at Amazon*. SAME PRICE at Currys*, and John Lewis* with a two-year warranty OUT OF STOCK.
    • Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) - £39.99 (was £74.99) at Amazon*. SAME PRICE at Currys*.
    • Echo Show 8 (1st Gen) - £59.99 (was £99.99) at Amazon*. SAME PRICE at Currys*, and John Lewis* with two-year warranty.

    Important: Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the hype around Black Friday and be sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. 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.
