Amazon Prime offers a huge number of benefits, including next day delivery, Prime Video and Prime Music, as well as early access to loads of Lightning Deals that are particularly good at this time of year. Here, we explain how to get Amazon Prime for free.

Amazon Prime began as a next-day delivery service. Customers could pay a fixed fee for a year of unlimited next day deliveries on qualifying purchases from the store. It has rapidly become much more than that, adding TV and music streaming services that rival Netflix and Spotify among a whole host other features (all of which you can read about here).

However, if you’re not sure you’d use the additional features but are desperate to get your hands on a Lightning Deal this Black Friday, want to watch a particular movie that's only on Prime, or need an item to be delivered as quickly as possible, you can get Amazon Prime for free.

If you’ve never signed up for Amazon Prime, you can take advantage of the 30 day free trial. You can sign up for the free trial by clicking here.

If you are absolutely certain that you won’t want to continue with Prime beyond that 30 days, remember to cancel your membership (find out exactly how to do that here). Otherwise, it’ll cost you £79/$119 for a year or £7.99/$12.99 per month.

If you’ve signed up for Amazon Prime before, even if it was just the free trial, you might still be able to bag the free trial again. Amazon lets customers have a free trial once every 12 months, so check when your last one was - you might be in luck!

Check whether you’re eligible for a free trial on the Amazon Prime page.
