What are the delivery options for Amazon?
Members of Latest Deals are particularly fond of Amazon Prime. It costs either £7.99 a month, or £79 for the year. The primary benefit is unlimited next-day delivery. Hundreds of thousands of items are eligible for Amazon Prime delivery, and you will see it on Latest Deals many times. If you shop at Amazon often, this could save you money and increase convenience. You can try a 30-day free trial here.
Amazon Prime offers unlimited next day delivery, even on Christmas Eve.
What other benefits does Amazon Prime have?
Tom Church, co-founder of Latest Deals said, "I enjoy Amazon Prime not just for the delivery perks, but also for Amazon Video and Amazon Music. These are entertainment platforms that come free with your payment. It's similar to Spotify or Netflix."
If you enjoy Jeremy Clarkson's old Top Gear, the new series, The Grand Tour, is available on Amazon Video here.
Both Amazon Video and Amazon Music are available as standalone applications on desktop, mobile, and some video game consoles such as Xbox One. You can also access it through the Amazon website.
You can buy Amazon Video separately to Amazon Prime. Do check out the latest Amazon bargains frequently.
Amazon Warehouse is where you can find reduced price items that have either been returned to Amazon, are selling for clearance, or have been slightly damaged (and refurbished). It is a fantastic place to find Amazon deals and bargains.
Members of Latest Deals often post deals found at Amazon Warehouse. These include electronics, video games, furniture and more.
How does it work? Amazon receives a product and they check to make sure it is in perfect working condition. They then judge its quality and pass on a discount to reflect that. Amazon's Satisfaction Guarantee applies to these products just as it does to 'new' products. If you're unhappy, you can return it as per Amazon's returns policy.
Another little benefit of Amazon Prime membership is that it gives you unlimited photo storage. Called Prime Photos you can upload as many photos as you like. It has standalone apps for easy management.
Amazon Kindle eBooks
A final perk of Amazon Prime membership is access to over 1 million free eBooks via the Kindle device, or free apps available for desktop and mobile. Many of the classics, philosophy and fiction titles are available for free download when you are a member of Prime. This is a great way to save money and get a discount on books you otherwise would have spent on.
In London and a few other select post codes across the UK, Amazon now offers Amazon Fresh. This is a grocery delivery service. You can buy branded products and food, delivered straight to your door.
Keep an eye out for Amazon Fresh discount codes as it is a new service and often, to try and promote new services, Amazon offer a promo code to get people using it. At the time of writing you could get £20 off a £60 spend. Interestingly, this promo code worked on non-food items also, such as GHD straighteners.
With Amazon Fresh you can buy dairy & eggs, deli, meat & seafood, breakfast, cupboard items and more.
What's the future of Amazon?
Amazon continues to innovate and create new areas or products or services. For example, it has tested delivery of products by air using drones; a supermarket where you just walk in, pick up what you want, and leave; as well as other innovative things. Take a look below:
