As the end of the year approaches, we've once again gathered up a selected few of the best deals we've spotted around the web, in case you wanted to treat yourself to something as a celebration for making it this far.

Here are the best deals we found this month. Treat yourself - you deserve it.

Prime Student for 6 months at no cost, plus a £5 voucher

Amazon's Prime Student program is offering one of its best deals so far. Right now, you can get a Six-Month Prime Student membership for no cost, giving you access to Prime Video, one-day delivery and all that.

Better still, Amazon is also throwing in 10% off textbooks, 10% off fashion products and even a £5 voucher when you enter the code UCAS5 at checkout. If you want to cancel your Prime Student subscription before you ever pay a penny for it, that's okay too, you won't lose anything.
