Amazon is now offering a year of Deliveroo Plus for free with its Prime subscription in the UK.

This allows Prime customers to access the silver tier of Deliveroo Plus for free, which gives them free deliveries on order over £25.

The cost of the service would normally be £3.49 a month, making this a saving of more than £40 a year.

Deliveroo Plus includes unlimited free deliveries of food from a variety of participating restaurants.

However, you will needing to be eating a lot or ordering for two people if you are to really make the most of the service with the £25 minimum order for it to kick in.

This deal comes two years after Amazon invested in Deliveroo, helping to raise funds of $575 million to help support it.

Their 16 per cent stake was eventually approved by the Competition and Markets Authority last year.

Amazon had briefly tried to compete with food delivery services with their own version called Amazon Restaurants.

It launched in London in 2015, but it failed to compete with the likes of Deliveroo and UberEats, so quietly exited the picture.
