If you’re an Amazon fan like me, you’re always looking for ways to cut your costs. But with near enough every service they offer – you can get a free trial. Here’s what you can claim.

Whether it’s fast delivery, free TV shows or even a free book – Amazon is quite generous with it’s free trials. If you’re struggling for money this January, it could be a way to get some free entertainment.

This blog does come with a caveat though – if you don’t want to be charged after the trial is over… please make sure you cancel. You can cancel your subscription as soon as you have signed up for the trial. 

So if you don’t trust yourself to remember, sign up and cancel straight away – and you can still enjoy the benefits for 30 days without running the risk of auto renewing.

Without further ado, here are the free trials Amazon offers you. Some of them you might not even know about:

Amazon Prime – 30 day free trial

Amazon Prime gives you free one day delivery on Prime eligible items. There is no minimum spend to qualify for the free delivery – as it is all included (and you get it super quickly).

This also gives you access to Prime Video, and Amazon Music, as well as exclusive ‘Lightning Deals’ and Prime Day deals which happen every so often. I often get a free trial on my account, even if I have already had one too – so be sure to keep checking back to see if you get more than one.

Usual price: £7.99 a month

Kindle Unlimited – 30 day free trial

Kindle Unlimited is basically a huge online library. Once a member, you have access to Kindle books for totally free, and can have up to 10 at a time. Once you’re done reading it – you can return it so you have a place for another book. 

You don’t get to keep any books, and once the trial is over, you do not keep any – so be sure you’re a quick reader! And don’t forget – my book Secrets to Saving is on Kindle Unlimited, so you could read it for free!

Usual price: £7.99 a month

Amazon Music – 30 day free trial

Amazon Music is basically Amazon’s version of Spotify or Apple Music. If you have an Alexa device and are paired with Amazon Music, you can play songs through your speaker. You have access to over 40 million songs and can download them to your smartphone too.

Usual price: £9.99 a month

Amazon Prime Video – 30 day free trial

Amazon Prime Video is Amazon’s version of Netflix which hosts hundreds of TV shows and movies for you to watch. One of the most famous shows being The Grand Tour (Clarkson, May & Hammond’s new spin off of Top Gear), which is only available on Amazon Prime Video.

Usual price: £7.99 a month

Amazon Audible – 30 day free trial

Amazon Audible is handy if you prefer listening to your books rather than reading them. You get a free audiobook as part of your trial, and you can keep it even after your trial is over.  There are over 200,000 titles to choose from including Harry Potter voiced by Stephen Fry.

Usual price: £7.99 a month

Amazon Fire for Kids – 30 day free trial

Amazon Fire for Kids is a subscription service for kids which gets them access to TV shows, movies, games and books (most of which are educational). Big titles include Dora the Explorer, Peppa Pig and Frozen.

Usual price: £1.99 a month

So there you have it! If you wanted some cheap entertainment this January, a free trial will last you the month. But please, do remember to cancel if you don’t want it anymore. Free trials make their money by people forgetting – unless you’re smart like us!

If you want to know another tip about Amazon, you can actually split your Prime account with a friend without paying any extra.
