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.
TikTok: £10 Amazon Voucher
If you’ve not yet joined TikTok, then ask a friend for a code to earn points that’ll be worth £10 when converted into an Amazon voucher. Ends 2 February 2023
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 £10 for yourself on top.
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.
£6 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 but is normally £6 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.
Up to £40 Amazon voucher with Amazon credit card (expired)
New applicants who are successful in getting one of Amazon’s Platinum credit cards will usually get a £10 gift voucher. It’s sometimes increased to either £20, £30 or £40.
Plus you’ll be able to spend immediately on Amazon while you wait for your card. You’ll earn 1.5% back on Amazon purchases if you have Prime, 0.75% if you don’t. You’ll only get 0.25% elsewhere, so I wouldn’t use it at other shops as there are better options.
However, bear in mind that these cards will be closed in January 2023.
Amazon Fresh offers
Amazon Fresh: £5 off
Click this link to receive £5 credit to spend at Amazon Fresh stores. You can use it one go, or spread it out over a number of small purchases. Expires 22 February 2023.
If the link doesn’t work try entering the code IBU2HAHAZWQO in the Amazon Fresh promo wallet.
To use it in store you’ll need the Amazon app, and you’ll find it in your account and then In-store promo wallet.
It’s only valid in London branches and one in Sevenoaks, Kent. You’ll be able to see the full list and terms once you apply the offer.
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 £15 spend (for some) (expired)
Until 23 January 2023, Amazon customers who are invited or see a banner on screen can get a £5 discount on a £15 spend on the usual Amazon sold items (i.e. not fulfilled by Amazon or sold by third parties).
This is the same offer that ran last month, but it seems different customers can get this one. See if you’re eligible here.
£5 off £20 when you create a wishlist (for some) (expired)
Click here to see if you’re eligible for this offer where you’ll get £5 credit to use on orders over £20 after adding three items to an Amazon Wish List. You’ll see the expiry date on the email voucher sent by Amazon.
£10 off £40 spend for some Prime members (expired)
Until 15 December 2022, eligible Amazon Prime members can get £10 free credit. This can be used on a minimum spend of £40 on items sold by Amazon. You won’t get it if you’re on a free trial or a business member.
To get the free credit, you need to follow this link to check eligibility, then upload at least one photo via the Amazon Photos app. You’ll be emailed a promo code within a week and must use it by 25 December 2022.
£10 off £20 when you add a Mastercard (for some) (expired)
Some Amazon customers can get £10 credit when they add a Mastercard to their Amazon wallet. If you are eligible, you’ll need to spend £20 for the discount to apply automatically at checkout. Ends 12 December 2022. See if you’re eligible here.
£5 off £25 spend on app (expired)
Until 30 November 2022, Amazon customers who are invited or see a banner on screen can get a £5 discount on a £25 spend via the app on items sold and dispatched by Amazon itself. See if you’re eligible here.
Barclaycard: Spend £10, get £10 (expired)
Amazon users with a personal Barclaycard can use it to spend £10 on Amazon before 30 September 2022 and earn a £10 Amazon credit as a reward.
You must go via the Amazon/Barclaycard offer page, and then spend at least £10 in one go. Once the order has shipped you’ll get an email confirming that £10 credit has been added to your Amazon account.
To spend this credit you’ll need to activate it at the basket on your next order, but it can only be used on products sold or fulfilled by Amazon in the “Moments Store“, which can be limited. This was a change to the original terms and conditions, so if you have got credit to use there rather than on all items sold by Amazon I’d get in touch with customer services and request the credit be made eligible for all purchases.
The credit needs to be used by 30 October 2022.
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 £79 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.
£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 £39 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 and sales
Free Kindle book every month
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.
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: £125 credit and no annual fee
For a limited time Amazon has removed the annual fee of £50 and offered a £125 statement credit when you successfully open up an Amazon Business American Express credit card and spend £1,000 in the first three months.
Black Friday 2022
The Black Friday week of deals is at the end of November (in 2022 it’ll be 25 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.
Prime Day 2022
Prime Day is Amazon’s big sale just for Prime members. In 2022 it takes place on 12 and 13 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 2022 deals, but there are already some early deals including:
For reference, here are few broader offers and trials that were worth checking out in 2021:
October Prime “early access” sale (ended)
Amazon is running a special two-day sale on 11 and 12 October 2022 just for Prime members. Whether it’s as big as Prime Day in the summer remains to be seen, and it could be the start of a long Black Friday sale.
There are already big discounts on Amazon devices, including the standard Echo down to £19.99. Of course, there’s often a new range of things like Echos and Fire Sticks around Black Friday so these are likely stock clearance prices.
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.
