Further to the deal going around last week to get free super saver delivery by adding a book or CD... just noticed that if you add the cheap book or CD to your order. Place the order, then go back in and cancel the extra item (that you don't really want anyway!) its cancels it and leaves P&P at £0.00.

PERFECT! Beat amazon at their own game,

They do pay taxes. Just the ones they are obligated to pay legally.

Yes it is. Idiot.

It's a freebie then...

No because there is still a purchase that has to made to get the delivery for free

Erm...one is intending to buy the item regardless. You just get the delivery free now instead of paying for it, hence the 'freebie'

Most retarded logic I've ever read. You're getting a 'discount' in the form of free delivery. If there was a buy 1 get 1 free deal, it wouldn't go under freebies because 'one was intending to buy the first item regardless, but now you get a second free instead of paying for it'.

This is not BOGOF as mentioned before.

Who needs tricks? Just pay for Prime, then you can get free next-day delivery any time you want without jumping through hoops.

How do you get FREE next day delivery when you have paid for Prime?
Sounds like "free" train travel after paying for an annual season ticket! It is not free, it is sound bite that fools the clever minds. In business it is extremely rare to get free things, a "free" thing is always associated with profit consideration.

prime customers get sub standard delivery companies to name a few:

- APLE (WHO?)
- city sprint
- yodel

whereas free shipping is sent by royal mail

I'm sorry but the Royal Mail is also 'sub-standard'.

tried to order some pencils - cost under £5 - no free delivery & I have Amazon prime.

Trying the idea here - ordered a book (next day) pencils (3 days) Cancelled the book and the pencils are still there, see what happens.

Just noticed that someone was charged in a previous post - cancelled the pencils as well.

My order went through at £0.00 no problems.

I've highlighted the discrepancies.

As somebody who buys from Amazon possibly once every 2 months and already very satisfied with the 'Super Saver' (typically dispatched the next day but with a 2 day courier) I don't see the point in buying Prime. Also consider a lot of the cheap groceries/health & beauty, etc have become 'add on' items making Prime even less enticing. I'd find myself buying tat I don't need just to justify that £49 a year or whatever it is.

To be honest ive got Prime and ive 100% had my monies worth with saturday deliveries etc

That's great, but its not really relevant to this deal. We all have different requirements, personally I don't care about next day or Saturday delivery, and due to the amount I order I'd be better off paying the postage on the rare occasion where I need something urgently. I'm generally happy to wait five days if I can have something delivered free, many people are the same and this is who the deal is aimed at.

No thats a fair point . However I order from Amazon for work and for personal stuff so am ordering from there all the time. All i will say is that offering free delivery on a £10 item say that they probably make a very small margin and then delivery costs for them are greater than the margin they are making is just bad business and a pretty stupid business model so im suprised this hasnt happened alot sooner. All these loopholes will be closed so use them while you can.




Yeah from a business point of view it doesn't really make sense, but I think Amazon have mostly been about low margins, considering their turnover the profits are fairly poor. Maybe that will start to change now they've built such a large customer base.

I guess removing the free postage could even be good news for people like you who pay, as some of the cheaper items may have been priced up a bit to take the free postage into account, and now won't need to be.

Who needs HUKD? Just buy the item the first place you see it, then you can get it straight away without jumping through hoops.

I'm not following your logic

sounds pretty logical to me

Whilst its great these loop holes exist... For now... I don't get why everyone is jumping. If everyone is so annoyed at Amazon changing the free delivery, then let them know it by taking your business elsewhere. I have moved to several other sites for purchasing my items that do not qualify for free delivery, that did before. And have even gone as far as take other items that are still free but equal in price to the other sites and let both parties know why. amazon will have lost a few thousand pounds from me by Christmas and I have let them know recently exactly what they have missed out on and where I have spent that money.

only by action, will these companies learn. And I have actially found the prices elsewhere, when cash back is included are often better or only a few pounds dearer at best and one company gave me ten pounds voucher code for letting them know why I had recently bought a load of products.

We all pay in one way or another due to Amazon's questionable tax returns.

Are we this stupid? The heat is manufactured! Kerching to HOTUKDEALS!

I forgot to add, this also works for 'Add on' items that you can only order from Amazon if you spend over a certain amount. So, add the add on item you want and pile random stuff in from Amazon to take you over the min spend threshold. Then when the orders complete go back to you order and cancel the random things you added... the add on item will be delivered on its own ;-)

This bugs been around for months, tis the same bug.

Hope they don't fix it but because its now in HotDeals they will, for sure.

Prime for free - register, take the one month FREE trial, remember to go to accounts and cancel the rolling subscription. When month is up, register again (just need another new email address) sign up for free trial ... etc ... etc. I'm on my 9th 'trial' month now ...

Might not be a good idea to use in this case as you want an actual account to check if everything went through etc.

I agree. For me, the only reason I am still buying from Amazon is because of all the Amazon Gift Cards I have from online earning. However, since they started this I have looked at alternative ways to claim my earnings.

But then, when you think about it, most sites charge delivery if you don't spend a certain amount. It's understandable since it isn't cost effective for them.
