How to sign up for Amazon Primeon May 25, 2023 at 15:43 Tech Advisor


If you want access to flash sales like Prime Day, as well as free (and fast) delivery, then an Amazon Prime membership could be for you.

Prime membership costs £95/$139 per year or £8.99/$14.99 if you’d rather pay monthly, but gets you access to plenty of other perks. Unlimited free one-day delivery (on many items) is probably the most well-known, but you can also use the Prime Video streaming service and store unlimited photos in cloud storage. The full range of benefits can be found on the Amazon website.

If you’ve never subscribed to Amazon Prime, signing up now will get you a 30-day free trial. Here’s what you need to know.

How to sign up for Amazon Prime on mobile

The process is slightly different via the mobile app, which you’ll need to download from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android) first. A full guide to the process is available in our separate article on how to get Amazon Prime for free.

Keep in mind, Amazon will charge you the Prime membership fee every month (or year) after the free trial ends unless you cancel your membership. Doing so before the 30 days are up means you can access all the Prime Day deals without needing to pay extra.

How to sign up to Prime with Amazon Alexa

If you own an Echo device or a smart home speaker that runs Amazon Alexa, you can also sign up for Amazon Prime by simply saying “Alexa, sign me up for Prime”.
