You will be on Ireland by default. I just changed my region; it literally took seconds through chat. Said I was in Newtownabbey and seemed to be on Republic of Ireland settings. Chat agent came back straight away to say that he had changed some settings and I was sorted!

Do you still have to meet a minimum threshold for free delivery on prime ie £25 but that you get it quicker, or can you order £15 of stuff and still get free delivery?

The item has to be eligible for Prime shipping which not all are particularly marketplace items. Watch out for the Prime logo on it. Once it is Prime eligible there is no minimum amount for the free shipping.

If you can watch season 1 of Fleabag you're on the UK account.

Thanks for the reminders on how to switch to the UK. I had done this a year ago but I guess it reverted back! The movie I used to test was Lego Batman. If you are in the UK you should be able to open this link and click "watch now".

If you see not available in your location then contact support via chat. Took about 1 minute to do.

Anyway to renew a Prime membership for £59?
Mines up in August and this makes a renew a real bargain IMO.

my subscription was due to renew for £79 on Tuesday. I contacted customer service and they advised the only way would be to cancel existing membership and set up a new one for the £59.
cancellation was immediate and was quickly able to set up the new annual sub.

Using your existing Amazon account or a new one? The £59 offer says it's only for new customers or those switching from monthly to annual. I'm in a similar position but with an August expiry.

Strange, Lego Batman works for me but the 1st Season of Fleabag doesn't!
