Deal alert / UK Promotion

Amazon UK have a special promotion TODAY ONLY that offers visitors £10 off any purchase over £50.

Music fans might want to take advantage and to give you a few ideas, below are a some SDE suggestions that could see you save a significant percentage off the purchase price of recent/forthcoming releases…

To get the discount, simply type BIGTHANKS in the discount code field when checking out. Items must be sold via Amazon and not third party sellers and if the item is already discounted as part of another promotion it won’t qualify. Obviously as long as your ‘cart’ adds up to more than £50 (not including P&P) you will qualify!

Note: You can only use the code once, so if you come back for a second separate transaction it simply won’t work.

SDE Suggestions:

    The picture link with the union jack goes to Amazon France Paul!

  2. Jonathan says:

    A “Big Thanks” to you Paul for posting this – re-ordered the Bowie at the Beeb vinyl box with an additional £10 saving.

  3. Phil Wilson says:

    Works for preorders too, hence a few orders cancelled and re-made. Being a prime customer, you can have up to 5 accounts.

  4. Mikko Suhonen says:

    Thanks Paul, this made me buy the new Monkees albums box and the Paul Simon albums box. I had decided not to buy anything in January, but now I’ve orderes 25 of them at £2,35 each.

  5. Jim says:

    Just a quick point. The advertising is saying that this in on any “qualifying” order. This means that it is only on items sold and supplied directly by Amazon and not by third parties. Even if these are fulfilled by Amazon. I know I just had a refusal of the code at checkout!

  6. Steve says:

    The BIGTHANKS code didn’t work for me from the US — maybe it’s only for customers in the UK?

  7. Martin says:

    Straight in for the Bowie at The Beeb box set for £49.99

  8. Karen says:

    Is this for prime customers only? I have been ‘trying’ and kept getting “unable to use”. They were all Amazon direct orders, delivered by the,selves, not market or fulfilled. Only thing I can think of, is that I am not a prime customer. Could not see this an amazons terms and conditions for using the code. I did add to basket, not 1 click. In the end I did a quick phone call, and it went through, just strange.

  9. trash says:

    Thanks for this.
    I ordered a header earlier today which I promptly cancelled and reordered to save £10.

  10. auteur55 says:

    I’ve tried it several ways on 4 cd’s direct from Amazon that i’ve ordered and it won’t take. None of these are discounted in any way. Giving up.

  11. Andy says:

    Reordered the Bowie Beeb vinyl also . . . Lovely job Paul!

  12. Adolfo says:

    if you’re in the US you have to check to see if the cost is over 5o pounds AFTER the VAT deduction; I tried to order 2 cd’s that came up to 47 pounds after the VAT deduction so had to add another item to my cart to get the discount!

  13. Geoff says:

    The Beatles – The US Albums box set is £68:36 after applying the discount. You have to change the seller to Amazon though as the first one comes up from third party seller.

  14. Trev Hughes says:

    Thanks Paul Bowie At The Beeb Box Set Ordered.

  15. Mike Pendlebury says:

    Bought the four Comsat Angels recent reissues and The Truth’s new collection! Thanks very much!

  16. Dom says:

    Not wishing to be pedantic but Stay On These Roads was not the next album after Hunting High and Low ;). Thanks for the heads up on the offer though and for such a fantastic site. Already own both the above mentioned but used discount on other items I’ve been after

  17. Steve says:

    ah – my VAT-excluded total was too low! What a problem, I have to buy more! Added another item, the promo code worked just fine :)

  18. Steven says:

    Thanks Paul. Used it earlier as Queen Forever vinyl box set is £46 currently so added Sam Smith Writing’s on the Wall 7″ and got the bundle for £41. Bargain.

  19. Thanks Paul,
    I have used the £10 voucher wisely and ordered Bowie @ the Beeb on vinyl as (what by then will be) a belated 46th birthday present to myself!
    Keep up the great work.

  20. Ravi says:

    Duh! Tried to order Bowie/Beeb yesterday from Canada but didn’t realize the VAT deduction would affect code usage. Darn!
