Just go to hot uk deals page and get the deal and will bring you to amazon page and checkout there with discount applied!

I tried this and it wouldn't work. The basket trick did, but I was unsure if it was the chat guys who had done something in the background or not. Good to hear it worked for someone else.

same here full price still shows when I go to check out on the amazon.co.uk site.
If you install the amazon alexa app on the phone how do you order it from there?

Press the Alexa button at the bottom of the app screen and say "Alexa I want to buy Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K ultra" that will add it to your amazon basket. Go to checkout on the amazon app and the discount will be applied.

This will also work for an Amazon Echo Show 5 which gets reduced to £49.99, again go to app and say "Alexa I want to buy Alexa Echo Show 5 Black/White"

Managed to get this working, set up a UK address with a revolut card.

Got to Amazon.co.uk/mycd and select preferences if there is no preference at the top then your region is wrong so go to Amazon.com/mycd

Once you select preferences then select your UK address/parcel motel and region to UK. Update it, at the top you should have a notification to click learn more about migrating your devices, select it and and change the region there to the UK for all your devices. Try again then

Added to basked and checked out! All good and I think my prime Is UK now aswell

If you have your card associated to ParcelMotel, they will take the money out when they receive the parcel, or so I think. You can also go into PM portal and add credit to your account.

is it just €4.50 to send down from the north, it's not another €3.95 to collect in Dublin?

I used Parcel Motel all the time but moved to Parcel Wizard. Same price to get it delivered to my workplace. Saves me the hassle of trying to get to the locker.
