How do you get the 5% additional discount?

Is it automatic once you have enrolled or do you log into nus extra to apply the code?

Code was STUDENT5 and i'm pretty sure it's expired now, you had to sign up as a new student prime member.

You get a code from the NUS site when registered, you then apply the code against your first purchase, and it will remain on your account until the 31 OCT 2016, at which point either the code is renewed or Amazon stop doing it.

That was for the £5.00 voucher, the OP is referring to the 5% off everything for being a student regardless of prime status.

Note also, that the 5% is capped at £75.00. so you can spend £1500 before the 5% stops, its also worth remembering that you can select to use the discount or not.. so its effective to not use the discount on the smaller value things and save it for the larger purchases.

​Why would that make a difference? 5% is still 5% whether you get it off £10 or £100. Just lasts longer if you use for small amounts. If you buy 10 £10 items you will still get same off as a £100 item.

It wouldnt, but personally I feel I get better value when I save 5% on say an XBOX One s than using it up in pennies one my smaller purchases throughout the year, its very easy to use the £75.00 on bits and pieces and then when you buy something large you have run out. I reached my cap very quickly.
