In the UK, Amazon is a large online retailer with hundreds of thousands of products available to purchase directly from Amazon or through a range of selling partners. You’ll find everything from smartphones to make up, electronics to clothing. Amazon prices products very competitively, so you should find that most products are cheaper than buying in a shop or from another website. There is a shopping concept called Subscribe & Save for grocery, health/beauty and baby products. You create your order once and choose a delivery date, then on that date on a regular basis, the orders will be created and delivered for free. You will save between 5-15% in comparison to creating separate orders. Amazon Family is a membership for Prime members, where you can save money on nappies with Subscribe & Save. If you work late hours, you may benefit from Amazon Collect, a click and collect service with free standard pick up or same day collection (in certain areas). Amazon Collect is available in over 15,000 locations and all the locations keep early/late hours so that you can collect your order when it is most convenient for you. If you prefer to have your order delivered to your home, you can choose from delivery options such as free delivery, standard delivery, priority delivery, express delivery, one-day delivery, same day delivery or delivery on a nominated day.
The Amazon Kindle is a popular e-reader device for books, magazines and other documents. There are several types of Kindle devices available. The basic Kindle is available in black or white, has a touchscreen display with no screen glare and an extensive battery life that lasts for weeks. From the basic model, you can upgrade depending on which features you need. The Kindle Paperwhite has a built-in adjustable light and comes with Bookerly, a new easy to read font. The Kindle Voyage comes with an adaptive front light and page press so that you can turn the page without lifting a finger. The Kindle Oasis has been designed ergonomically with buttons so that you can turn the pages easily and it comes with a cover to boost battery life, so you won’t need to charge it for months. Once you have purchased a Kindle, you can choose millions of different books from the Kindle store from fiction to autobiographies, classics to the latest bestsellers. There is regularly books available for 99p thanks to the Kindle Daily Deals and some classic books such as the Great Gatsby, Les Miserables and Jane Eyre are available for free.
Alongside Kindle books, Amazon has an extensive range of physical books available. You’ll find everything from the yearly book of Guinness World Records to children’s paperbacks and autobiographies from the likes of Jeremy Paxman. There is also a wide range of lifestyle books available including cookbooks from top chefs such as Tom Kerridge and nutritionists such as Deliciously Ella. You can enjoy deals such as three for £10 on paperbacks and deals of the week. If you struggle with reading, there is a wide range of audiobooks with all kinds of choices from celebrity autobiographies such as Davina McCall to the latest releases such as Bridget Jones’s Baby.

You can download certain titles from Amazon Prime onto a compatible device. However, this is only possible for some titles and you will only be able to have the download on your device for a certain period of time.
Amazon was first founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos, originally as Cadabra, before the name changed to Amazon a year later. The first book was sold on the website in 1995 and Amazon became known for its unusual business plan, in that it didn’t expect to make a profit for the first five years. By 2015, Amazon had taken over from Walmart as the most valuable retailer in the USA.
