Amazon has slashed the price of its Prime subscription from £79 to £59 to celebrate the launch of The Grand Tour. Here's how to get the cheaper deal and how to get Amazon Prime for free ready for Black Friday.

Amazon's The Grand Tour (which stars former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May) arrives today (18 November), and is exclusive to Amazon Prime Video. To give more fans a chance to join in with the action, Amazon has reduced the price of its Amazon Prime membership to £59 from £79, and that's for an entire year.

For that £59 you'll get a year's access to Amazon Prime Video, as well as unlimited one-day delivery, Prime Music and, importantly in the lead up to Black Friday and Christmas, early access to Lightning Deals.

Amazon doesn't offer Prime for £59 often, so take advantage of this deal while you can if you've been considering signing up. The offer runs until the end of 18 November, which is The Grand Tour release date.

How to get free Amazon Prime: Sign up for a free trial

If you're not convinced that you want to spend £59 for a year of Amazon Prime but do want to watch the first few episodes of The Grand Tour or get early access to Lightning Deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you should sign up for a 30-day free trial.

If you've never tried Amazon Prime before you'll have no problems signing up for a free trial, which you can do so by clicking here and following the on-screen instructions.

If you've tried Amazon Prime before, you'll be able to get access for another free 30 days if it has been a year or more since your last trial.
