Amazon Prime price cut to £59 in Black Friday UK deal

The run-up to Christmas is chock with sales, and Amazon’s latest is as good as any.

Amazon has slashed the price of an Amazon Prime subscription for a limited only.

The offer, which is being used to promote the Black Friday sale, sees the premium service cost reduced to just £59 for a year-long membership.

Normally, Amazon charges a hefty £79 for the subscription – that’s just over a 25% reduction.

Do note: the offer is only available from Sunday, November 15, to Wednesday, November 18.

Black Friday, which is traditionally a US-based shopping sales day, falls on November 27, and is commonly seen adopted by UK retailers.

Amazon is no stranger to the tradition, and has already kicked off sales early.

With an Amazon Prime subscription, customers will be able to purchase eligible goods with free one-day delivery.

Subscribers also get access to the one-hour delivery service – Prime Now – in certain London and Birmingham postcodes.

Other Prime perks include access to Prime Instant Video, Prime Music, Kindle book loans, and unlimited photo storage on the cloud.

That’s not a bad selection compared to single-service providers like Netflix (video-only) or Spotify (music-only).

This is especially true when you consider the equivalent monthly cost of Amazon Prime, which works out at £6.58 per month – or £4.92 under the new deal.
