How to get £5 off a £25 spend through the Amazon app

AMAZON is giving Prime members £5 off their next £25 shop through its app.

The deal works by adding a promo code to your next order.

To find your code, you need to have the Amazon app downloaded to your smartphone.

If you don't have it downloaded, you can get it free through the App Store or Google Play.

Once you're logged in, click the banner on the homepage that advertises Prime Day deals.

Scroll down, and you'll see a button advertising £5 off your next £25 spend.

How to compare prices to get the best deal

JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.

There are plenty of comparison websites out there that'll check prices for you – so don't be left paying more than you have to.

Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.

Here are some that we recommend:

  • Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
  • Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
  • Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
  • CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.

Click this, and you'll see your unique promo code. Make sure you either copy this, or write it down, as you'll need to then enter this code before paying for your purchase.

The code expires at 11.59pm tomorrow, October 9, so you won't be able to use it for Prime Day bargains – despite needing to click through the Prime Day banner to get it.

The promo code can only be applied through the Amazon app on Apple or Android phones – it won’t work on purchases being made on desktop computers, laptops or tablets.

With previous Amazon deals, only products sold directly through Amazon have been eligible for money off.

We've asked Amazon if this is the case with this offer, meaning you won't be able to get money off resellers, and we'll update this article when we know more.

As the offer is exclusively for Prime users, you won’t be able to benefit if you’re not a member.

Amazon Prime – which gives members free next day delivery and access to Prime TV shows and eBooks – costs £79 per year or £7.99 per month.

And here's when Black Friday sales could start at retailers including Next, Argos and Amazon.
