    Very tempted!

    What are the advantages? And with Amazon Music, is it a package that is compatible with Amazon Alexa (I believe some Amazon Music deals aren't!)?

    Is there plenty of choice on Amazon video? I looked earlier, and some had a prime marker, and some didn't. Do I take it that anything without a Prime marker would be an additional cost (for example, TV Series of Death in Paradise).

    I personally don't find Amazon video selection of shows/movies any good but down to personal preference, I think.

    Don't forget about Prime Reading too. If you enjoy reading there are lots of books and magazines to read.

    I find prime video pretty good lots of free movies/tv series and exclusive content. plus some others from as little as 99p, add in the free delivery on many things and you soon get your money back.

    Hi All,

    Just a tip for renewing Amazon Prime:
    (it worked for me anyway!)

    My Amazon Prime subscription expired on 2nd July 2019 so I decided not to auto renew at 79.

    I bided my time and today I checked Amazon and, lo and behold, I was offered Prime for 59.

    So I renewed for 20 less.

    Has anyone else had this?

    (by the way I do generally get my money's worth out of Prime).

    Prime is currently on offer at 59 so I am afraid you are not special

    Although it does state
    Available to new customers and those switching from monthly to annual plans only.

    That's interesting because I've never been a pay monthly Amazon Prime customer.

    Perhaps I'm a 'new' one though after less than 2 weeks.

    Yes, my husband has Prime and added me. You have to be at the same address and there are certain things that you can't do as an added member, I can only buy films on his account and signing up for things like Fresh can only be done by the main holder.

    I get this when I go into Fresh :
    In order to shop the Fresh store, the primary account holder of the Prime membership you are currently sharing must add Fresh to their Prime membership.

    Can someone direct me where to look for this please?

    I have just switched my account prime account to the 59.00 a year, as I was currently paying 7.99 a month, so thanks for the heads up, as I knew nothing about it.
