About Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime is an annual membership programme that offers customers unlimited One-Day Delivery on millions of eligible items sold by Amazon.co.uk. Eligible customers who purchase a new Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD will be given a free month of Amazon Prime.
Kindle customers who avail of this one month free trial will also have access to the Kindle Owners' Lending Library for the duration of the trial.
The Kindle Owners' Lending Library allows eligible Amazon.co.uk Prime members who own Kindle devices to choose from thousands of books to borrow for free -- including current and former top sellers in the Amazon.co.uk Kindle Store -- as frequently as a book a month, with no scheduled date for return. For more information, visit our Kindle Owners' Lending Library page.
Who is eligible?
Customers who have not used Prime over the past year will automatically be given a free month of Amazon Prime when they first activate their new Kindle Fire. If you're already a paid or free trial member of Prime when you register your device, you'll be able to seamlessly use your benefits without interruption or changes to your membership.
