This year, Amazon is rolling out a special promotion to help small business operating on the online shopping portal – and if you take part you can bag yourself a £10 credit to use on the big day – or days even. How? Prime members who spend £10 on items sold by select small businesses in the run-up to October 12 will earn a £10 free credit to spend during the two-day event on almost any item across the store.

New Prime Members can also get an extra £5 credit if they sign up for prime via Alexa on any Echo device by simply saying: "Alexa, sign me up for Prime."

Remember that you need an Amazon Prime membership to get access to the deals - but you don't necessarily need to pay for it. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial, which can be cancelled anytime thereafter. After the free trial runs out it’s £7.99 a month.


Early Prime deals have already got underway across several categories, including 20% off selected Amazon Brands items and other items including a great one for coffee lovers - the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio S Automatic Coffee Machine, was £89.99, now £59.99.
