I have been a member of Amazon Prime for a while now. I will be honest, I only initially signed up so that I could watch The Grand Tour. Mostly I have used Prime for watching TV shows and movies. I have watched films that I have never even heard of before, some I would never want to watch again it has to be said. But I have saved money on postage as well. You do have to be careful though as some items maybe cheaper to purchase away from the Prime option.
But there are ways to save money with Amazon Prime that I had no idea about.
1. Buy a CD or vinyl album and get the MP3 version for free.
I only found out about this when I purchased a CD to listen to in the car (my car is too old to have bluetooth connection). The CD itself was only £5 and I still got a free MP3 download straight to my laptop.
2. Be rewarded every time you choose no-rush shipping.
For every order where you select No-Rush Delivery, you’ll receive a promotional reward that’ll be automatically applied to your Amazon.co.uk account once the order dispatches. This promotional reward applies only to the type of items indicated in the offer at checkout. This is another benefit I did not know about.
3. Save on non perishable grocery items.
Like anywhere, if you buy in bulk you can save. I have teamed up with my Mum and purchased 3 x 1.9L Bold 2-in-1 washing liquid. At my normal supermarket they would cost roughly £30, we have paid just £15. We have bought 48 Andrex toilet rolls, supermarket price £22, we paid £15. Total saved £22.
4. Save 15% on groceries and never run out of what you need with Subscribe & Save.
We made one-off purchases for now, but if you choose to purchase on a regular basis you will receive discounts. For just one rolling order, you will receive a 5% discount. But this will increase to 15% when you subscribe tp 5 or more items.
5. Donate to charity without even thinking about it.
AmazonSmile is a website that lets you enjoy the same selection of products on amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when you shop through the www.smile.amazon.co.uk, 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases will be donated to the charitable organisation of your choice.
