You can get a free 30 Day Trial of Amazon Prime here .
Normally 2 day delivery to Ireland would cost £7.49 on Amazon.
Online shopping will be getting even more popular in the next few weeks as people try to avoid contact with others.
With the free trial, you can also take advantage of 30 days of free Prime Video to keep the kids (and yourself) occupied while the schools are closed.
If you are wondering – Netflix don’t do a free trial in Ireland – and their lowest-priced plan is €7.99 a month.
Students in Ireland can get an even better offer on Amazon Prime.
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 .
If you have a student in the house take advantage of this offer during the COVID lockdown.
(The price for students after 6 months is £3.99 a month) .
Not all items sold on Amazon are eligible for Prime – but there are thousands that are.
If items are not eligible for Priority Delivery, they’ll be delivered to Ireland via Standard (3-4 days) or Economy (3-5 days) delivery at no extra cost to Prime members.

How Much Is Amazon Prime in Ireland ?
The normal price of Amazon Prime is £7.99 GBP per month.
Or it’s £79.99 GBP per year if you pay in one lump sum (that works out at £6.66 a month) . It’s the same price in Ireland as in the UK.
The best way to find out if Amazon Prime is any good for you – is to sign up for the 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.
Amazon’s option of Free Super Saver delivery to Ireland on orders over £25 is still available in 2020 for non-Prime members – but this can take 4 to 6 days and sometimes more.
Amazon Music Unlimited
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.
Amazon Music Unlimited costs £9.99/month . I use it myself – and it is as good as Spotify or maybe better and it works on Amazon Echo devices, Kindle Fire, smartphones, tablets and desktop computers,
You can also download songs to play offline. You can create and amend your own playlists or choose from hundreds of others already set up.
Amazon Prime members in Ireland do not get a price reduction on Amazon Music Unlimited . (In the UK Prime members get £2 off a month)
