Black Friday is almost upon us. This year, the Amazon UK Black Friday Deals Store will be open from 00:00 on Friday 16 until 23:59 on Sunday 25 November. Amazon has confirmed that not only will Black Friday be the company's "biggest ever Black Friday Sale ever" but that Amazon Prime members will get some great benefits.
Those benefits include an exclusive 30-minute early access period to all Lightning Deals, and Amazon Fashion's new 'try before you buy' service, Prime Wardrobe. That service allows Prime members to get clothes delivered for no extra cost, try them on at home, and only pay for the things they decide to keep.

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 are graciously allowed 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 Black Friday 2018 period and you want to get in on those sweet deals?
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. And since Prime day only lasts for 36 hours, that's way longer than you'll need to snap up those Prime 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 all your Christmas purchases (and beyond) before you pull the plug.
