Seems to be Prime Exclusive.

£59.99 - waiting on it too. I've only ever bought prime on prime day, and was paying the monthly 7.99 for August and Sept.

That’s currently £118 for prime members. Don’t think it’s going to get cheaper

I think it was down from £79 to £59. I wonder if it will be worth getting the annual membership if the UK complete Brexit? Will Amazon UK continue to be the main outlet for Ireland?

How much is Prime monthly normally?

I'm only paying £4.99 and I'm not sure why.

I took advantage of that UK student offer where having a university email address gave me free membership for a year. Once that expired, it reverted to 4.99 a month. Is that normal?

£4.99 is the student rate.

Anyone else get different prices when shipping to Ireland vs Parcel motel address? When I ship to Ireland the product seems to be discounted but when I ship to UK the product is charging the full price.

Ah okay. Well I'm certainly not a student - how long do they tend to leave that rate applied for?

Think it depends what you entered in at the time of sign up. They think Im graduating in 2024 so Im getting four years of half price Prime. Anyone can do it with an old university email address, I think there might even be workarounds if you dont have a uni address.

I'd be keen to take up any annual offer going as well for Prime but have the same concerns re Brexit. Maybe it'd be better to sign up to any offer for Amazon.de or Amazon.fr Prime? Or will they launch an Amazon.ie portal in case of a no-deal?

Amazon Prime is coming to Ireland with next-day delivery so any annual offers would be well worth picking up.

Same.

have also heard they're supposed to be launching an Irish site, but presume this wouldn't happen until after Brexit

Where did you hear that? Like someone else above, I have the student prime rate so I'm covered anyway, but I'd love to be able to order things without the frequent "can't be delivered to your address" messages.

Not going to detail the thread but they've acquired a large fulfillment centre in Rathcoole and are currently training drivers at the moment, doing trial runs and logistical work.

An Post are also aware of this (they mentioned it in their recent annual update) that Amazon are one of their biggest customers, and they know they're going to be also using their own services, which will take some pressure off the postal system.

In short, Amazon Prime is landing properly in Ireland.
I'd expect something before Black Friday here.
