Dealing with the Amazon Prime (UK) price hike

Some really valuable advice which cannot be missed as Amazon has hiked the prices of their subscription. The monthly subscription in the UK will go up from £7.99 to £8.99, and the annual cost will rise from £79 to £95.

If you are on the monthly subscription switch to the annual subscription now (atleast before the 14th August 2022).

If you are already on the annual subscription, please cancel and then get a new subscription at the annual rate of £79 before 15th Sept 2022.

Mail I have received from Amazon Prime, like many of you it remained unread till I spotted the Martin Lewis video below.
