Unfortunately you are not eligible for this promotion.

The promotion is only open to customers who signed up for Prime (free trial or paid membership) but have never signed into the Amazon Shopping App or the Amazon Underground App on a smartphone or tablet before 11:59 pm on June 30, 2016.

I was impressed until I saw the Amazon app 'needs' access to your microphone ( ?????? ), camera ( ???!!!!! ), contacts, location etc etc. For £5 they can keep the most intrusive app I have ever seen.
Thanks.

I signed up for a free trial on 30th June so I qualify.

Just sign in to get the £5 then delete the app.

​Camera is so you scan items to find on amazon, location so they know where you are to buy from right store. Practically every app asks for access, doesnt mean they do anything suspicious

get a decent android device running android 6+ and instead of having to globally accept all permissions, you can choose which ones you want to allow.

I don't get why people get so paranoid about these things though. the microphone is so you can use voice search, contacts is so you can share deals, location is for advertising purposes (practically every app I've used asks for this).
They only use these permissions when you use those particular features. the app doesn't randomly copy your contact list, or take pics, or turn on your mic, or track everywhere you go.

go buy a tin foil hat.

Go ahead, make fun of people with legitimate privacy and security concerns - we know you do it because you gave away your privacy (for the sake of a few baubles) and it makes you feel better if others do the same and you can write off those that won't as tin foil hat wearers.

I see this attitude towards the rape of personal privacy by the likes of google all the time.

The use of phrases like "tinfoil hat" or "conspiracy nut" and their implications have long been used to belittle people asking reasonable and logical questions about sensitive subjects. Even Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg places tape over his camera and microphone. (_;)

​Zuckerberg has proven his stupidity and incompetence previously, the guy was hacked recently for reusing a very easily brute forced password across numerous accounts.

Believe me, as someone who has a good grasp of IT security. If someone has access to your machine to the level that they can use your Webcam and mic....
They are hardly going to be spending time listening to your boring drivel and taking your next selfie for you.
They already have sufficient access to pull your windows password hash which can probably be cracked within a few hours tops with the use of gpu acceleration or rainbow tables.
Additionally any stored passwords, keystrokes, Web history, cookies and personal files etc are all now freely available to them.

As someone else mentioned just because apps ask for your permissions does not mean they are going to mine your data, however granting those permissions does give the apps free access to those parts of your device, if you got the app from anywhere but a trustworthy source who's to say malicious code hasn't been injected to mine your data using the permissions you have granted the app.


Sticky tape and tinfoil hats is no excuse for stupidity.

If somebody wanted your data they could probably get it very easily.
Generally trusted companies like amazon are not going to use it for anything but providing you and everyone else a better service.
Got my £5 today via email. Code valid until 15/9/2016
