Don't know if it's still the case but you used to be able to include something on pre-order, wait until your item is dispatched, then cancel the pre-ordered item.

The way I do it mate, is sort items sold by AMAZON with the £20 free shipping and then select the items to the value of £20 and sorted!

I don't use amazon that much to justify the spend. I don't want to spend £50+ to get a cd for £3!!

The dishonest way is to order extra items and complain they are damaged and return the damaged items.

Please do not do it!

Thanks, I may have to do this unless someone can confirm the pre-order "trick" still works. It's a bit unethical, but I am sure Amazon won't mind given their antics.

Hi pre order works but I always buy something cheap from amazon wherehouse so you will get the order quickly

Use this site ... it searches for items based on how much more you need in order to hit £20

Think you can order items under the £20 limit if you have the amazon echo and use that to place the order

Just put things in your basket that are supplied by Amazon. It doesn't matter if they're pre-order items. Take it to over £20 then checkout. Immediately cancel the items you don't want and they'll still despatch the items you do want with the free delivery. Works every time.

Can you keep using the same debit card on each new account?

Select prime trial and cancel after one month or after you receive your item.

I always add some small household items e.g. hand wash was there yesterday for 97p
