Most people know Prime for the free shipping and Prime Video, but there’s so much more to discover about your Prime membership. Here are some of the other great benefits you might not know about yet.
If you’re looking to be productive or just relax, Amazon Music provides unlimited access to over 100 million songs available to listen to, ad-free and at no extra cost to Prime customers. Listen to your favourite artists at home or on the go by downloading the perfect playlist.
To enhance your listening experience, Amazon Music is fully compatible with all Echo speakers, perfect for when you’re around the house and want to play something loud. Start listening at music.amazon.co.uk.
Perhaps you just want to dive into a good book. Whether it’s an epic journey with J.R.R. Tolkien or a family saga with Lucinda Riley, Prime Reading offers a vast catalogue of books, completely free with your membership. For something lighter, have a look through Prime Reading’s digital catalogue of the best magazines – including Cosmopolitan, Total Film, Harper’s Bazaar and more.
You can read these on your Kindle e-reader or Fire tablet, but if you don’t have either device, the same collection is available on the free Kindle reading apps for iOS and Android. Browse the latest available titles here!
Students with an Amazon Prime membership can benefit from a 50% discount on Prime subscription fees, alongside a variety of other student-only deals and bonuses. This includes study essentials, like 10% off thousands of textbooks, 10% off STABILO stationery products, and an extra 15% off coach tickets with National Express. Discover the whole range of Prime Student offers here.
Included as part of your Prime membership, Amazon Photos offers an unlimited photo storage service – and video storage up to 5GB. Level up your photo collection with secure, automatic backup of your images, the option to share your photos and videos with up to five family members with Family Vault, and the ability to display your favourite memories across your Fire TV and Echo devices.
Perfect for those who can’t resist a photo opportunity, Amazon Photos also uses advanced image recognition to easily search and sort your photos by people, places and things – no matter how big your collection! Start saving your collection here.
Prime Early Access is the yearly two-day shopping event that gives Prime customers access to some of the biggest deals of the year, ahead of Black Friday and the holidays.
Last year, Prime customers got a head start on their shopping during the Early Access sale, with significant discounts on brands like Lego, CeraVe, Samsung, and even Amazon products like Ring Video Doorbells and Kindle e-readers.

Previously known as Twitch Prime, Prime Gaming gives subscribers access to a weekly selection of free games to keep, and – after linking your Twitch and Amazon Prime accounts – a free subscription to your favourite streamer on Twitch.

A Prime account doesn’t have to just be for one customer – with Amazon Household, you can share your Prime account with another adult and your children so that everyone under one roof can benefit from Prime offers and services.
You can link two adult Amazon accounts to share eBooks, apps, and games – with adults able to share this digital content with linked child accounts. They can control and personalize each child's experience by selecting what content they can see, and even set educational goals and time limits to safely support their child’s development.
