More Amazon Prime Day offers – £8 bonus on £80 gift card, £10 voucher for an Audible free trial

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Apologies for dropping in two additional non-travel deals today, but I know these Amazon deals are popular with readers.  We also make a small cut on sales via the links below which helps keep us ticking over at no extra cost to you.

The first offer is an £8 bonus when you top up your Amazon account with £80.

This offer is only available to a limited number of people.  Last year it hit the target early and we ended up deleting it from our article, so don’t expect it to last until the end of Prime Day on Tuesday evening.

You MUST register for the £8 top-up deal by visiting this page of Amazon and clicking ‘Click to register for the top-up reward’.  This guarantees that you get your £8 as long as you top up before the deadline.

The second offer is with Audible, Amazon’s audiobook service.

If you register for a 30-day free trial, you will receive a £10 Amazon gift voucher AND two free audio books.

Here are the details.  If you don’t see the offer, and are logged in to your Prime account, it is because you do not quality as an existing or previous Audible subscriber.  Here are the terms and conditions.

You will get a £10 Amazon voucher, valid for 365 days on products sold and despatched by Amazon UK, if you sign up before midnight on Tuesday 16th July.

How it works

From reader feedback in the comments below, it seems that the £10 credit is available immediately.  You do not receive a voucher.  The credit is sitting on your Amazon account and will automatically be applied to your next qualifying order of products ‘sold and despatched’ by Amazon UK.  You can then cancel the free trial – you will remain a member for 30 days so you can still download two free audiobooks if you wish.

Another reader wrote: “I just registered for the free trial, bought something with the £10 credit, and cancelled the Audible trial in under five minutes.”

Remember to cancel Audible within the 30 days unless you want your membership to roll over at £7.99 per month.  You can sign up for Audible here.

  • Craig says:

    How long did the Audible voucher take to arrive?

    • stevenhp1987 says:

      Mine arrived within seconds! But it’s not a voucher that you obtain, they just apply £10 promotional credit to your account that you can only see while ordering.

      Did free trial, went to make order, £10 “promotion” came off (on top of the prime day deal promotion). Free trial cancelled.

      • Craig says:

        Thanks, didn’t see it in the mess of promotion and gift card etc.

  • Harvey says:

    If I top up with £80 of Gift cards so I get the promotion?

    • stevenhp1987 says:

      You need to top up your account with £80 after opting in to the promotion.

      If you apply £80 of Gift Cards purchased elsewhere, no additional £8 will be credited.

  • Liam says:

    I just registered for the free trial, bought something with the £10 credit, and cancelled the Audible trial in under five minutes.

  • BJ says:

    There are also offers for:

    Music, 4 months for £0.99
    Kindle unlimited, 3 months for free
    Change prime subscription from monthly to annual, save £20 on usual annual fee.

  • Alan says:

    £20 off existing Amazon Prime sub – either ask for it via online chat or cancel your existing Prime Membership for pro-rata refund and then re-join at today’s £59 rate 🙂

    • Zed says:

      I tried this but they said I’ve used too many prime benefits this year and there would be no pro rata refund as it is not based on time but on usage.

  • Andy Young says:

    If you have an NUS card (which my wife has, with some help from me) Prime is only £36 a year.

    • Matthew says:

      True but you can’t share the benefits like ‘normal’ Prime.

    • Yawn says:

      I’m an academic, which might be why Amazon keeps pitching its Student Prime membership at me… Would it be wrong for me to join, given its persistence? Have had an Amazon account since 2005 so it really should now better…

      • TokyoFan says:

        I hope you’ve also got your NUS card too for 30% off Pizza Express, amongst other useful discounts!

    • Craig says:

      Trying to persuade Mrs S to do another short course at the local Uni through work, she’s reluctant for some reason. The other loopholes to get a Totum card (NUS Extra) seem to have closed.

      • john says:

        If you work at an academic institution you may qualify. The college where my wife works, staff can get them too.

  • Robert says:

    Thanks Rob. Just used the £8 credit top up offer.
