Amazon looks set to have some tasty discounts this year.
For Black Friday, Amazon gave Prime members an exclusive 30-minute early access period to all Lightning Deals, which meant that Prime members were able to snap up the bargains before everyone else.
If this happens again for Amazon's Boxing Day sales, you might want to make sure you're ready by having your Prime account set up in advance.
- Best Boxing Day sales from Amazon, Argos, Currys, John Lewis, AO and more
- Best Boxing Day TV sales
- Best Boxing Day laptop sales
A core part of Amazon's business strategy, Prime also gives you access to Amazon's free music and movie streaming services – with the ever-tempting option of then paying for their not-free music and movie services, and also free, one-day delivery on goods bought from Amazon and certain third parties who sell through Amazon.
Prime Membership costs money: £79 a year in the UK or $119 a year in the US. As noted, for that fee, you get unlimited one-day delivery on your orders, access to Amazon Prime Instant Video, regular deals for Prime subscribers and you will, be able to take advantage of the discounts offered on Amazon Prime Day 2019.
We think that the benefits of Prime membership make that annual fee worth paying, but what if you just want to try Prime without paying for it? Like, for instance, during the Boxing Day sales period?
That's easy, read on...
Get Amazon Prime free for 30 days
Amazon offers all new customers a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime which is way longer than you'll need if Amazon offers Prime-specific Boxing Day deals. So not only will you get the deals you're after, but you'll have a full month of free one-day Amazon deliveries plus all the other benefits that Prime members enjoy.
You can cancel at any time during your free trial and you won't be charged a penny. Ready to grab your free trial? Hit the links below.
Get Amazon Prime free for six months
If you're a student, you're in luck, because Amazon is offering you a free six-month Amazon Prime trial. After that, should you decide not to cancel, then Prime Student will cost you just £3.99 a month.
And if you do decided to cancel, that six-month free trial period means you'll be able to use your Prime account to get free delivery on well into 2019 before you pull the plug.
