What is Amazon Prime?

For the purposes of Black Friday, signing up to Amazon Prime will mean you get exclusive first access the Lightning Deals, as well as potential further discounts on other products and speedy delivery of purchases. Although Amazon hasn’t announced any Black Friday deals yet, being a Prime member will certainly give you an advantage when it comes to 24 November (and the deals beforehand).

There are plenty of other benefits to signing up to this subscription service though, including access to thousands of movies and e-books, next-day delivery on Amazon purchases, and your very own Prime Day, where members have access to a series of flash sales. You can even buy your groceries online too, through Amazon fresh.

It costs £79 a year to be a member but students get a discounted price of £39. There’s a free trial to test the service if you don’t want to pay without trying it out first.
