You probably know what Amazon Prime is all about by now. When you hear its name, your thoughts might first go to quick delivery or technology deals – but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.


First launching back in 2005, Amazon Prime has become the standard by which many delivery and entertainment companies try to live up to, and it’s constantly innovating and changing what’s on offer. Its biggest draw is of course next-day and same-day deliveries, but there’s also access to hundreds of items and services that you can’t find anywhere else.

At £8.99 a month, Prime members can also enjoy exclusive deals on technology and Amazon devices such as the Amazon Echo range. They can listen to over 2 million ad-free songs with Amazon Music, get access to a rotating selection of eBooks and magazines with Prime Reading, and watch hundreds of TV shows and movies on Prime Video.

Amazon also recently added a free year of Deliveroo Plus to its roster, as well as two Odeon Cinema tickets for £10 and one year of free Hello Fresh delivery. You can even get unlimited photo storage and take advantage of the try-before-you-buy system on Prime Wardrobe.

If you’re still missing out on all these incredible services and savings, then we’re here to help. Below, you’ll find some of the best ways you can sign up for Amazon Prime for less. Whether you want to go through Amazon with the free trial, find cheaper subscription packages on offer, or go through another company to get your discount, we’ve got all the information you need.
