Everybody loves Amazon Prime membership for the free postage and free video/music streaming, and exclusive prime member discounts - but none of us want to pay full price for it. 

What is Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime is an exclusive membership for Amazon customers that comes with great benefits such as fast and free shipping, TV/Movie/Music streaming, exclusive deals, and more.

For an annual fee of £79, Amazon Prime members can:

  • Get unlimited, FREE One-Day Delivery on millions of items
  • Watch over 15,000 movies and TV episodes with unlimited instant streaming
  • Borrow from thousands of titles from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library
  • Secure, unlimited photo storage with anywhere access
  • Listen to over 2 million songs on Prime Music

Amazon Prime membership is absolutely worth it. But if you can get it free or cheap, why not take advantage?

 

How to get Amazon Prime Cheaper in the UK

Free Trial

Amazon offers a free 30 day trial for new sign-ups, but even If you’ve signed up for Amazon Prime before, you can still bag the free trial again.

Amazon lets customers have a free trial once every 12 months, so if you can live with 1 month per year to get all your deals, then you can have prime absolutely free. 

TIP: The best time to purchase your first free trial is around Amazon Prime Day

Sign Up With New Email Accounts

When signing up, Amazon looks at the email address, not the credit card used for your membership. So for as long as you can keep churning out emails, you can keep getting free trials.

Student Discount

If you have a student in the house, get them to sign up for prime, because not only will they get a whopping 6 months free trial, but their membership is then 50% cheaper at £3.99 per month, or £39 per year, which works out to £3.25 per month.

Prime Student gives students all the benefits of Prime membership, including:

  • Unlimited One-Day Delivery on millions of items
  • Stream thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video
  • Access exclusive student offers including 10% off textbooks from Amazon
  • Over 2 million songs on Prime Music

Amazon Credit Card

If you are a frequent shopper on Amazon UK you could take out their Amazon Platinum credit card.  You also get a £30 amazon gift card for signing up. 

You earn points for spending (more at Amazon) and every time you reach 1000 points, your card gets loaded with a £10 voucher which you can then use to pay your Prime membership fee.

Complain

Amazon Prime offers a 2-Day free shipping guarantee. So, if your package arrives late, always contact Amazon support by phone, chat, or email to let them know. It's a well known fact that they dish out good rewards for delivery failures, including:

  • An extra month of Amazon Prime for free.
  • Amazon gift card. This can range from £5 - £20
  • Credit back to your card

 

Sign During the Prime Day Period

Every year Amazon discounts its Amazon Prime annual subscription cost from £79 to £59 over the Amazon Prime Day period in July. You have to pay for the year but you are saving £20, which is worth it. 

 

Split the Cost

If you and a friend both want Prime, you could simply share an account, enabling you to go halves on the cost. Amazon has a great sharing system available called Amazon Household.

This program allows you to share your prime benefits with one other adult in your household - but you can split it with anyone you like.  You can add as many cards and addresses as you like, so it's really straightforward to share. 

Prime Household also lets each person receive their own unique logins and passwords to access movies, music, and Kindle books

Pay Yearly

You can pay monthly for Prime – but it'll cost you more. The monthly cost of prime is £7.99 and yearly is £79, so by paying yearly, you are getting two months free each year.
