You’ll get way more out of the Amazon Prime free trial if you sign up today − here’s why

Today (November 27) is the perfect day to start your 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime. Why? Because activating it now means you’ll not only get access to Amazon’s best Prime member-exclusive Black Friday deals, but you’ll also be able to watch up to 20 Premier League games for free in December.

If you’re not a football fan, feel free to scoff. But if you do love The Beautiful Game, and can’t afford a Sky Sports or BT Sport subscription, this is simply too good an opportunity to ignore. 20 Premier League matches, for free. Hell, even if you are a Sky Sports or BT Sport subscriber, this is still worth taking advantage of.

For the first time ever, Amazon has secured exclusive rights to Premier League football, and Prime members − paying subscribers and everyone on the free trial − can watch them at no extra cost. There are a couple of standout ties too, with Man Utd vs Tottenham and Leicester vs Liverpool the best of the bunch.

Here’s Amazon’s full Premier League fixture list (none of these games will be shown on Sky Sports or BT Sport):

Tuesday, December 3

  • Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth (7:30pm ko)
  • Burnley vs Man City (8:15pm ko)

Wednesday, December 4

  • Chelsea vs Aston Villa (7:30pm ko)
  • Leicester vs Watford (7:30pm ko)

  • Wolves vs Man City (3pm ko)
  • Man Utd vs Newcastle (5:30pm ko)
  • Leicester vs Liverpool (8pm ko)

So why should you activate your free trial now, rather than on December 3?

If you start your 30-day free trial today, it will end after Amazon has shown all of its Premier League games − but you’ll also get your pick of Amazon’s best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals this weekend, some of which will be exclusive to Prime members.
