6 Months Free Amazon Prime Video - Amazon.fr (See description / £20.90 a year after)

I read about this a few months back, but it wasn't really worth the share back then with the geoblocking Amazon had on their services, using a VPN and such.

But now all this is a thing of the past, this is a great little freebie. Follow the link above to sign up for a 6 month Amazon Prime trial on the .fr site that is intended for 18-24 year old users...

You will be asked for your age at the bottom and then just sign up for your 6 month trial. The trial is a full Prime trial but the benefit here is for the 6 months free Prime Video. It's £20.90 a year thereafter which I think is a cracking price.

As soon as you have signed up, you can cancel at anytime in your account settings.

Here's my details...

Although the UK site for Amazon doesn't accept me as a Prime member, I am fully able to watch Prime videos on the same account I signed up with on the .fr site

As a heads up, the trial also covers Amazon Twitch Prime, so you will be eligible to claim your free games from them too

You need to link the two accounts (your Amazon.fr and Twitch). See here.

I used Google Chrome for signing up with auto-translate, you'll only use the .fr site for the sign-up process. The rest after is accessed on the .co.uk page.

I just used a (non Prime) UK account I've had for a few years.
From my limited French, it said something about them reserving the right to verify your age, and if you weren’t 18-24, to do something which I assume is cancel your membership, which isn’t the end of the world. I voted hot, I’m just interested to know what you guys think the implications are?
how would the prime benefits in this case work out? for benefits such as One day delivery, early access to flash sales, would these privileges be available from Amazon UK also or only from Amazon France? Can purchases be made only from Amazon.fr ?

Apologies but just trying to figure out how this would work out!

I'd assume just a cancellation of the services on your account.

I haven't really mentioned it as a 6 month Amazon Prime trial because everything but the Video services and Twitch Prime would be useless to us. It's a shame it doesn't include Amazon Music.

Does logging into the UK site now show you as having Prime? Just wondering.

Makes sense, thanks I was sure I'd seen mention of changing the page language without translate, but alas, couldn't find it.

Had to cancel via the French site too as .co.uk didn't recognise that I even had a trial (like yourself). Do you know if I'd also need to use the French site to get any other Prime benefits e.g. delivery etc?


EDIT: Nevermind, missed a previous post!
Edited by: "hawksface" 9th Apr
Had no luck linking the Twitch account to Prime due to different regions. Oh well:

"We can not activate Twitch Prime on your account.

Looks like you are registered for Prime in another region! Make sure you are registered for Prime in the right country or territory."
Great deal Buzz!

6 month Amazon Video is great

Yeah, I'm thinking there may be a region mismatch on it from an earlier comment. I didn't try the Twitch Prime as I have it with my Amazon Prime account.
Nice thanks..
Do you have to put in a valid card as my current card is already in use with them on a different account ?

If you cancel straight away do you still get the 6 month free video prime trail ?

When you cancel a UK Prime membership it cancels instantly and refunds you the unused difference. I'd imagine this would cease instantly, but you can request a 3 day email reminder when you go to cancel.

Personally I think the £20 a year after the trial is a cracking price too.
quick question if anyone knows as im not home to check, can you sign into the app for example on a samsung tv or lg tv and it will let me watch it on there? if anyones checked yet that is

I can confirm it works on both Android, as previously mentioned and Xbox One. I'm not signing out of the Hisense app though, because it takes an age to log in

Thanks cancelled but cheap for 20 quid
Free for 6 months a cracking deals. But Amazon prime video is not worth a single penny. I'm prime customer. Rarely watch Amazon video. Don't care if it exist or not. Thanks netflix
Just signed up..
But please confirm coz so confused...

I am able to watch content on my amazon UK - does that mean I can download the app and watch too?

Also I don't have access to other prime benefits through the UK, it's literally just the shows?

THANK YOU!!

While you would get away with using a VPN as sound Internet security....intentionally lying about you details is fraudulent. No two ways about it. That's fraud.

"Fraud by false representation (Section 2)
The defendant:

made a false representation
dishonestly
knowing that the representation was or might be untrue or misleading
with intent to make a gain for himself or another, to cause loss to another or to expose another to risk of loss."

I think the extra features will work via the amazon.fr, and the videos working might be a bug or to do with the geolocking being removed. My FireTV doesn't like the videos due to signing up in a different region though - maybe it just needs an update to fix the geolocking.

He's right to be fair. It's probably on the same level as purchasing a cheap Deezer account claiming you're in Brazil
Is it worth the hassle? If so, may as well become a student and get NUS card for around £13 a year. 6 months free Amazon prime UK and then £39 a year thereafter. Sure it's more than. £20 but you get all the other prime benefits also.
