Amazon Prime Now UK £5 promo
Amazon is pushing its Amazon Prime Now product at the moment in the UK.
You can get a fiver off with the PRIMENOW5 coupon code. We don’t know if it’s universal or targeted but it’s worth having a go if you’re thinking about using Amazon Prime Now at the moment.
Amazon Prime Now is the service where you can get 1 hour delivery on a stack of products for £6.99 or a two hour same day delivery window for free if you’re in one of the eligible post code delivery areas. You need to be a current Prime subscriber.
Amazon is both bold and innovative when it comes to delivery and this same day delivery feature is a great service if you need things in a hurry and are willing to pay a few quid for a super fast service. Have you used it?
Here’s an information page, and a video, explaining it all.
I’ve used Prime Now several times now and it’s a brilliant service. The available stock is sometimes a bit eclectic, but I’ve always managed to find something close to what I was looking for.
Deliveries are real-time tracked so you can actually see where the driver is on his/her way to you and so far the time estimates have been very accurate.
The drivers are not always professionals – eg they are obviously in their own cars as opposed to a van and as a result they are not quite a slick as, say, a DHL courier, but it isn’t a problem.
I am in a free delivery area so I have not yet paid anything for the deliveries. There is an option to pay extra for a delivery within an hour, but I haven’t used it – 2 to 3 hours being plenty soon enough.
The only thing that irritates me is the option to include a tip for the driver, at time of order. Why? I don’t tip any other couriers. Don’t Amazon pay them enough?
Apart from that, hats off to Amazon for leveraging their infrastructure and setting the bar ever higher for retailers.
