You’ll also want to sign up for Amazon Prime if you haven't already done that in order to take part in the annual digital shop-a-thon, which offers thousands of discounted items online. The subscription service costs £7.99/month, or £79/year, and comes with a stack of benefits - not least free fast shipping and access to Prime Video.
