From Amazon vouchers and free trials of Amazon Prime to flash sales and tricks for free delivery.
Let’s face it, Amazon is probably the one website that most people will use at some point each year, so it helps to have a voucher or discount stored up. Here are the best deals at the moment.
If you’re thinking of reducing how much you use Amazon, then check out my article looking at why it can be good to cut back.
There are some decent offers throughout the year to watch out for. You won’t be eligible for all of them but it’s worth a look.
Amazon gift card and voucher offers
Snoop: £5 Amazon Voucher
Snoop is an app to help you track your spending. It also analyses your bank date to suggest ways you can save money. Right now there’s an offer to get a £5 Amazon voucher.
You must go via the link below for the offer to track.
Once you’ve downloaded the app and signed up you need to connect a bank or credit card account and stay connected until the end of the following month. The voucher will then be paid.
Free credit when you buy a gift card
It’s worth trying even if you’ve used a similar promotion. However you can normally only qualify once every couple of years. Check the offer is displayed when you click through. The latest offer I’ve seen runs offers £6 extra when you buy £60 of gift cards.
If nothing is displayed, it could mean it’s ended or you’re not eligible. These deals are often extended or return after a short absence.
£5 extra when you top up by £60
Similar to the gift card promotion, here you top up your Amazon account and get some extra credit added. The promo value changes often, but it’s currently £5 when you add £60.
If it is running, it’s only for any people who haven’t topped up their account in the last 36 months. Again, this deal can come and go, so it’s worth checking.
TikTok: Up to £15 Amazon Voucher (expired)
If you’ve not yet joined TikTok, then ask a friend for a code to earn points that’ll be worth £15 when converted into an Amazon voucher. The offer comes and goes, as does the value of the voucher, but it’s always worth a look.
Here’s mine (CF55045041), though it looks like each code has limited redemptions so if that or your friends’ have run out, or you don’t know anyone with an account, I’m sure you’ll find one online.
You’ll need to
- download the TikTok app
- create an account, and enter the code
- go to the Rewards page (tap profile, then the gift icon) within 24 hours
- Check-in once a day for 7 days
You can also share your own code with friends and earn £15 for yourself on top.
Amazon cashback offers
JamDoughnut: 1.5% cashback
Cashback app JamDoughnut is offering 1.5% cashback when you buy a prepaid Amazon gift card.
You’ll also get an extra £4.00 (400 points) via our special link if this is your first ever JamDoughnut purchase.
Black Friday 2023
The Black Friday week of deals is at the end of November (in 2023 it’ll be 24 November), but the sale starts before this and carries on after.
You need to have a Prime membership to get early access to the best deals, but the 30-day free trial will give you that.
If you’re after an Amazon device (Echo, Kindle, FireTV, Eero, Ring) then this is likely to be one of the cheapest times to buy.
Amazon Black Friday week (ended)
Amazon started its Black Friday sales a week early, beginning on Friday 17 November 2023, and then run until Cyber Monday on 27 November.
Remember to use price history tools to check if something is a good price, and check you can’t get it for less elsewhere.
We’ll update here with the best deals, including:
Check eligibility for promotions
Head to this page here to see your personalised Amazon offers. It’ll show you trials and discounts you are eligible for. However, I still think it’s worth looking at the offers above and below in case they don’t show.
£5 off purchase of returned products
Some customers can get £5 off if they purchase returned products using Amazon Warehouse. These products are sometimes refurbished or might just have opened or damaged packaging, so they’re always pretty good quality.
Not all customers have this deal available, so you’ll have to go here to check if you’re eligible. The £5 can be redeemed against items sold at Amazon Warehouse products of at least £5. Be careful not to use 1-Click ordering, as the code won’t be applied.
You’ll get 7 days to use the code, which you’ll have in your email inbox if you’re eligible.
Amazon pickup: £4 off £12 spend (for some)
Amazon is offering select accounts £4 off when you use Amazon Pickup. This is where your order is sent to a pick-up location, such as an Amazon locker, for you to grab when you’re ready. Your order can’t be fulfilled by or sold by a third party.
This is valid from now until 31 December, so it could easily be used against some Christmas shopping. You need to claim the offer on the website and spend at least £12, then you’ll get £4 off as a reward.
Only those invited or who see a banner can access it. You can see if you’re eligible here. If so, hit the “apply promotion” button before shopping.
Only the first 50,000 customers can redeem this and you can only do it once.
Free £5 voucher when you make a wish list (expired)
Select Amazon customers can get a free £5 voucher to use against a £20 spend at Amazon. All you’ve got to do is check if you’re eligible via the button below, then make a wish list and add three items to it.
You should get the voucher in your account within three days of making your wish list and you’ll be able to spend the voucher until 11.59 pm GMT on November 27 2023.
Amazon Music: £5 off £20 code (expired)
Selected Amazon Music customers will get a £5 off £20 Amazon promotional code when they stream a podcast on Amazon Music by 11.59pm on 12 November 2023.
There are lots of podcasts to choose from including the Cash Chats Podcast hosted by Be Clever With Your Cash editor-in-chief, Andy Webb.
Your promo code of £5 will be sent to you via email within 7 days from your first podcast stream on Amazon Music.
And, you’ll have up to 30 days to use it on a qualifying Amazon purchase of £20 or more.
£5 off your next £15 purchase (expired)
Selected Amazon customers can get £5 off a £15 spend. This deal is invite-only and you’ll get an email or notification to let you know that you’re eligible.
Offer ends at 23:59 on 29 October 2023.
Amazon: £5 off £15 shop via app for some (expired)
Amazon is offering 50,000 customers £5 off a shop – though only if you’re eligible. If you are, and you activate the offer, you’ll have 15 days to make the purchase.
The selected customers will have to spend a minimum of £15 via the Amazon app on eligible items (that must be sold by Amazon and not third parties).
Find out if you’re eligible here. Ends 23 September 2023.
Amazon Prime membership offers
Amazon Prime is Amazon’s big membership scheme. I’ve got it thanks to the deals listed below and use it a lot for free delivery and to stream film and TV. You can learn more in my comprehensive Amazon Prime review.
30-day free Amazon Prime trial every year
You know the drill here. You get free next day delivery, Amazon Prime Instant Video, access to Amazon Prime Now and loads of other goodies. It’s normally £95 a year but you can get a free 30-day trial.
You will hopefully be able to do this every 12 months, but it’s unclear if this is guaranteed for all customers. You can always try your luck (you never know), but if you’ve not yet taken out a trial, I’d wait until you’ve got a lot of spending coming up, or a big sale such as Prime Day or Black Friday (more on these below).
99p for one week of Amazon Prime
If you’ve previously had Amazon Prime but aren’t yet eligible again for a second free trial you might be offered a week for 99p. After this you’ll pay full price unless you cancel.
Vodafone: 3 months of Amazon Prime for £1
Vodafone customers can get 3 months of Amazon Prime for £1 by signing up through the link provided in their VeryMe Rewards.
Just to note, that at the end of the 3-month offer period, you will automatically pay a monthly subscription of £8.99 unless you cancel any time before the end of the offer period.
The offer is not available to existing Prime subscribers, or if you have had a Prime free trial in the last 12 months. Terms & exclusions apply. Offer ends 29 February 2024.
£2 off Prime via O2
If you have an O2 SIM you can now add Amazon Prime to your bill and receive a £2 discount each month. You’ll find the details here.
Amazon Student: six months free, then £47.49 a year
If you have a student card you should also be able to join Amazon Student. This is essentially Amazon Prime. You get six months free, then 12 months half price. It’s possible Amazon might ask for additional proof you are a student.
Prime member offers
£15 Amazon credit when you back up your photos
If you’re a Prime member, you get access to Amazon photos, which gets you unlimited photo storage and 5GB of video storage. If you’re yet to upload any photos to it, you might be eligible to get £15 credit when you upload at least one photo to the app before 27 November 2023.
You just have to download the app to do this, I chose to back up my entire camera reel, but you can upload individual photos too.
I had the credit on my account within 24 hours of backing up my photos. It can be used for any purchase of £30 or more.
20% off £40 spend for Prime members
Amazon Prime members can get 20% off when they stock up on selected items. However, bear in mind it’s a limited selection of items.
You’ll need to spend a minimum of £40 to unlock this deal which will be applied at the checkout, up to a maximum discount of £100 per order.
Items must be purchased in a single order and have to be shipped to one address too.
Free Kindle book
There are lots of ways to save on Kindle books, but Prime members can also nab one of six titles every month for free via First Reads. There’s normally a mix of genres and once you pick your book you can send it to your Kindle.
Prime Day 2023
Prime Day is Amazon’s big sale just for Prime members. In 2023 it took place on 11 and 12 July.
It’s important to remember that not all the deals are the best price. Some are simply old stock that needs clearing, while other items are often as cheap throughout the year. I’d recommend using uk.camelcamelcamel.com to see the price history before making any purchase
Most offers are product specific, and I’d encourage you to check for price matching elsewhere, especially on tech like Echo speakers and Ring doorbells.
I’ll share the pick of 2023 deals here, and some early deals here.
July Prime Day sale (ended)
Amazon is running its special two-day sale on 11 and 12 July 2023 just for Prime members. The summertime deal event could offer the chance to grab a bargain ahead of larger autumn sales such as Black Friday.
It’s worth shopping around and seeing if you can get the same item for less elsewhere, or with added features. If you do buy something at Amazon and the price drops during the sale you can get a refund for the difference.
We’ll add any decent deals here, including:
As always the biggest discounts are on Amazon’s own devices, such as Kindle, Echo, Fire, Eero and Ring. If you’re new to TopCashback you can get a £15 bonus plus up to 3% back on these devices. Our picks include
- There’s 60% off an Echo Dot which will cost £21.99, while the Echo Pop is reduced to £17.99.
- A kids Kindle Paperwhite is reduced to £89.99, but this is effectively the same as an adult one and comes with a 2-year warranty and a free case. There’s also 20% off the pre-discounted price if you trade in an old Kindle and up to £15 Amazon voucher on top. That knocks it down to around £42 all in.
Prime members can get an extra 20% off groceries when they shop at Amazon Fresh online or if purchasing more than 5 items from an Amazon Fresh store. This deal is available from 21 June to 12 July 2023.
You can get £5 off a Deliveroo order with the code PRIME5OFF
You might also be able to get £10 off a £30 spend if you complete a “Treasure Hunt” – basically streaming a video and a song.
Prime Big Deals Day 2023
This new sale for Prime members is taking place on 10 and 11 October 2023. We don’t know yet whether it’ll be a carbon copy of Prime Day or something different. As soon as we spot any early offers, we’ll share them below.
As with Prime Day, don’t get carried away. Only buy the things you actually need, and check they’re decent prices too.
Don’t forget you’ll need to have Prime to take part – but we’ve deals listed above that’ll save you money or perhaps help you get it for free.
October’s Prime Big Deals Day sale (ended)
Amazon is running its special two-day sale on 10 and 11 October 2023 just for Prime members. The autumn deal event could offer the chance to grab a bargain ahead of Black Friday and the Christmas sales.
It’s always worth shopping around and seeing if you can get the same item for less elsewhere, or with added features. If you do buy something at Amazon and the price drops during the sale you can get a refund for the difference.
Some of the deals available include:
- Get £15 Amazon credit when you back up your photos with Amazon Photos (minimum purchase £30).
- Prime members can sign up for 4 months of free Amazon Music Unlimited. Prime members that already subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited can upgrade to a Family Plan at no extra cost for 4 months too (ends Oct 11 2023). Once the trial is over, your membership will renew at £9.99 per month for a single prime account or £17.99 per month for the family plan if you don’t cancel.
- Selected Prime members can enjoy 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for free. Other accounts may be able to get a discounted rejoining price – and we’ve seen a deal offering 2 months of Kindle Unlimited for £3.99. After the trial period ends, your membership will renew at £9.49 per month unless you cancel beforehand.
- Amazon device discounts including:
- Automatic refunds: if you purchase an item with a “Prime Big Deal” badge sold by Amazon from 10-11 October and the price drops before 18 October at 23:59, you’ll automatically get a refund for the difference.
Amazon Fresh offers

Amazon device deals
There are offers most months, so if it’s at full price you should wait. If you’d rather not shop at Amazon then do check other retailers as they often price match the bigger discounts.
Amazon Business offers
Every now and then there are offers such as £50 off for new Amazon Business users. I’ll update here as and when.
It can take time to set up the account but you should be approved in around two days.
Amazon Business Amex: £25 credit and no annual fee
For a limited time Amazon has removed the annual fee of £50 and offered a £25 gift cardwhen you successfully open up an Amazon Business American Express credit card and spend £1,000 in the first three months.
My top Amazon money saving tricks
I’ve written a separate article about how to save even more money at Amazon, including the following:
Hundreds of vouchers to use at Amazon
This page lists loads of coupons you can use to save at Amazon. You “collect” the voucher and the discount is automatically added to checkout. When I added this there was a typically random collection of products including chocolate, WD40 and hair straighteners.
