The Amazon Prime membership scheme has been around for a few years now. It started off with members just getting free next day UK delivery on eligible items. It was then expanded to include some free Music (about 2 million songs) as well as a selection of free films and TV programs. The free priority delivery to Ireland was added in 2018.
Amazon Prime members also get access to special offers on certain days of the year that are not available to anyone else.
Amazon Prime Video now includes coverage of selected Premier League matches in the UK . Premier League matches are not officially available to Irish residents – but apparently there are ways around this *.
Not all items sold on Amazon are eligible for Prime – but there are thousands that are.
Students can get an even better offer – Third Level students in Ireland and the UK can get a 6 month FREE trial of Amazon Prime.
You can sign up here on the Amazon Prime Student Sign up page .
(The price for students after 6 months is £3.99 a month) .
Sign up now for the free trial and you will have free 2-day delivery until well after Christmas and you will also be able to get access to all the best Black Friday offers attheend of November 2019.
How Much is Amazon Prime in Ireland ?
The normal cost of Amazon Prime is £7.99 per month or £79.99 per year if you pay up front. As well as the free 2 day delivery to Ireland you also get access to Prime Video.
Amazon Prime Video for Irish members is not as extensive as the UK version – but when we checked in mid-2018 there were 3221 films available and 360 TV series. It is possible to change your Prime regin to the UK. See the end of the article for details.
Amazon Prime members in Ireland can also borrow from thousands of ebook titles from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. You can also get free secure, unlimited photo storage.
Of course, Irish residents with Amazon Prime also get free next day delivery to all UK addresses.
The best way to find out if it is any good for you – is to sign up for a free 30 day trial . If you don’t think it’s worth £7.99 a month you can just turn off the auto-renewal before the 30-day trial runs out.
The option of Free Super Saver delivery to Ireland on orders over £25 is still available for non-Prime members – but this can take 4 to 6 days and sometimes more.
Sadly – the inclusive free “Amazon Prime Music” is not available in Ireland for Amazon Prime members – but their Amazon Music Unlimited option is available in Ireland. It offers 50 million songs including loads of new releases from popular artists and some exclusive releases.
It costs £9.99/month . It is as good as Spotify or maybe better. You can get a 30 day Free Trial of Amazon Music Unlimited Here
You can stream Amazon Music Unlimited songs on your phone, Kindle Fire, Tablet, Amazon Echo, Laptop or PC. You can also download songs to play offline.
Amazon Premier League matches in Ireland.*
Amazon Prime members located in the UK can now watch Premier League soccer matches live.
These matches are not supposed to be available to watch in Ireland – but we have seen online reports of people being able to watch Prime Video Premier League matches in Ireland.
It needs a change to the region used by Amazon in your Prime account
. It seems that the best way to get this changed is through online chat when logged into Amazon. The succesful viewers get the region changed because they tell the chat agent that they are in the UK most of the time for work reasons – which could be true for many people working in Northern Ireland .
Some people also say it might help if you have a UK payment card (such as Revolut or Monese). It also might help if your default delivery address is a UK address. Many people seem to use the Parcel Motel address:-
1A McKinney Road
We are not saying that anyone should do this – but just letting you know that this is what others have done to view premier league matches.
