Get £50 off £100 spend at Amazon with Amazon Business

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

EDIT:  The good news is that this offer has been extended to 14th September.  The bad news is that it is now less generous.  You can still save up to £50 on your next Amazon purchase, but it is now based on ‘25% off your next purchase of up to £200’.  The code has also changed to B2B25OFF.  The links in the article below are still the correct links to use when signing up.

Last Autumn, and again just after Christmas, we ran a very generous promotion with Amazon Business.  For another few days, it is back.

If you sign up, for FREE, to Amazon Business you can save £50 on your next £100 Amazon purchase. 

(I know this is outside our usual ‘miles and points’ coverage – so don’t moan! – but it is a good offer and frankly we’re touched that Amazon takes such an interest in HFP!  This offer has only been made available to a small number of Amazon partners and these are mainly blue-chip sites.)

Amazon Business half price discount

If you have your own business and sign it up – for FREE – to Amazon Business before 14th June, you can use code B2B2018 to get 50% off your next purchase before 18th June, up to a maximum £50 off.

Virtually all items on the Amazon UK website which are sold directly by Amazon, not from third party sellers, are included.  You do NOT need to spend the voucher buying business supplies.  Alcohol, clothing, books …. anything you like, as long as it is sold by Amazon and not a third party.  You need to redeem the voucher by 18th June.

To sign up to Amazon Business you need to click here or click the ad above.

You will see this offer mentioned on the landing page as long as you click through from HFP.

You MUST click through to Amazon Business via our link (the URL will say shopperpoints-21 at the end) to receive your 50% discount code.

If you have extra-strong anti-tracking software on your computer, it may strip out the tracking code from the URL.  This means that Amazon will not see that your click came from us and you won’t get the voucher.   If you have installed additional ‘no tracking’ software then, before completing the form, double-check the URL in your browser does still show shopperpoints-21 at the end.

NOTE:  if you have signed up for this offer in recent weeks and have trouble with the code working, please email me today at rob at headforpoints.co.uk with the email address used on your account.  I can then check with Amazon directly.  Problems are few and far between but there do seem to be a couple.

Using your 50% Amazon discount code

The 50% discount code is B2B2018.

However …..

The code is only ‘live’ on your account 48 hours after you receive an email from Amazon Business to say that your new account has been verified.

YOU CANNOT SIGN UP AND USE THE CODE IMMEDIATELY!

You need to click through via the HFP link, sign up, wait until your receive the ‘account verified’ email and then wait a further 48 hours.  The code will be active on your account at that time.

Comments

  1. O/T but wonder if Rob knows if IHG are likely to be running a points purchase scheme anytime soon.

    • There was one last week – a 5-day flash sale. I wouldn’t be surprised if something else comes along within the next month.

  2. Rob, can I just check are ALL the links to the sign up page on this post affiliate links, thus guaranteeing the offer upon application. I just re-read the post and it sounds like the link nearest the bottom might not get the offer.

    Many thanks

    • The T&Cs link at the bottom is not the right link – the two Amazon Business links in the last two paragraphs are.

      In theory, clicking any of the general Amazon links on HFP should also do it, but for safety use one which takes you directly to the AB home page.

    Does turning account in business affect Prime in any way (mostly I’m interested in the video service that I get with Prime)?

      Personally I would create a new Business Acct with Amazon for your company with this offer.
      I would most definitely not change an existing personal account, into a business account.

      Basically the conditions are different, and also if it goes wrong then your personal account (including, as in my case, your entire personal history and card records etc.) goes up the Swanee as well.

      I’d keep Business and Personal accounts strictly separate at Amazon. Unless I had absolutely no use any more for my Personal account or its history.

  4. Is it to late to sign up for offer now?

    • No, last day in June 14th. Voucher should be active within 2-3 days. You need to spend it by June 18th.

  5. RakishDriver says:

    Just ordered ~£95 worth, the discount was adjusted accordingly, so seems doesn’t have to be >=£100

  6. OT: BA 2-4-1 booking. Household account.

    So my intended companion cannot come with me. Terms and conditions of the voucher say
    > Once travel using the Companion Voucher has been booked no name changes are allowed.

    What are the odds that I could call them up and beg to make an exception to the rule so they would change the name of the companion to someone from my Family & Friends list?

    Failing that, what are the odds that the seats would come up for redemption again?
    Travelling on 29th this month.

    I, being the moron that I am, booked non-refundable hotels for the trip.

  7. Lady London says:

    In principle yes it should work – I’d have a quick look at the t’c and c’s of the Amazon Business account just to make sure (though I don’t recall anything in there that related to this) and I definitely would not contact Amazon to ask if it’s OK.

    I would just do whatever you would normally do for this type of buy – accepting hte risk that with this type of buy, at fairly regular intervals retailers welsh on the payout or reduce it to lower than was promised.

    So it’s worth a punt but have a quick look at the t’s and c’s, take a punt if you would buy it anyway and see what happens. Remember whatever you buy has to be sold and fulfilled by Amazon and that’s true for far fewer items than you would think on Amazon – many people struggle to find them.

  8. Thanks Rob, nice £50 saving 😀

    I’m getting “The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase.”, despite it being confirmed to me in an email.

    Pretty disappointing!

    • Is it over 48 hours since you got the verified email? Are you only buying 1 item ‘sold and despatched by Amazon’? Are you paying cash for the balance, not invoice? If you are buying multiple items, are they ALL ‘sold and despatched by Amazon’ with IDENTICAL delivery terms, and all coming together?

      Best way to see if it is ok is to just put one item in your basket and try the code. The code is not lost as long as you don’t check out.

      • Ciaran McNulty says:

        Resolved this by reading the T&Cs – if you enabled shared payments while setting up the account you can’t use the voucher until you disable it again
