That’s tougher now. You can’t use ecareers to get the nus card.

If i go online now, it shows in stock!
Do you have a link to the TV? Seems unlikely Amazon have it in stock but yet there is such a delay

Happens all the time to me. "In stock" but taking a week before shipping it? "In stock" Seems to mean that Amazon have it somewhere in the world but not necessarily in that country's warehouses.


6 weeks though? Never had it that bad!

its defiantly in stock sure i can see that with my own eyes. I think even though it says sold by amazon, thats not actually the case, because in one of the emails they started telling they rely on the suppliers to let them know if something is in stock. I was always under the impression once it was 'sold by amazon' it was in their warehouse, but this doesnt seem to be the case.

Bloody Genius!
For some reason it wouldn't validate my Revolut Mastercard, generated a Revolut Visa virtual card and it went straight thru!
Thanks for the heads up!

They switched me to Prime Video UK no probs a few weeks ago. Revolut card with PM as shipping address

For future reference is having a Physical Revolut card they sent me the same as a virtual card?

My physical card has my real address on it so just a bit confused if there is any difference.

Is it "physical card" shows as ROI, Virtual strictly UK and use Virtual for all Prime payments?

Cheers folks

Do you have the mouse toggle app downloaded as you need it to navigate around that app. Otherwise you need what Usedtowait suggested.

Is it worth getting amazon prime and pay 9.5 euros per month? Given I order roughly twice a month from them or from ebay. I am not sure if it's worth getting it?
Any personal experience or thought?

Try get the student trial, it last 6 months. If you look back on this thread you should see a way of getting it. Using the nus card. I've noticed since I've gotten it I order more.. But that's just due to the free shipping no matter what price (if not an add on item). I'd say it worth it for me as I order atleast every other week and I use the prime video.

Also student charge is only 4.99eur per month

I used ecareers as the institute (you didn't need to prove anything). Get the card then email amazon a screenshot of the profile (from the nus app).

When I write ecareers, it's giving an error and not accepting it. I am trying on this website :

It's asking specifically for university name and then you need to login using university specific login details.

Any other solution?

PS. Somehow I went to next stage and it asks for Pin code and wouldn't let go ahead.
