Prime Day deals are coded in blue so you’ll be able to quickly spot these deals, and there will also be lightning deals for extra savings during the day.

You’ll be able to grab a bargain on everything from technology, clothing and every day essentials.

Don’t forget to log in early to see the best deals as stock may be limited and some products may sell out quickly, but also remember to keep checking throughout the day as new deals will be added.

You can also save £10 on Prime Day when you spend £10 with small businesses, so you’ll feel good about supporting independent businesses but you’ll also have more money in the bank.

Do I need to be an Amazon Prime member to get the deals?

The Amazon Prime discounts are only available to those with Amazon Prime memberships, so if you want to take advantage of the deals that will be on offer, you’ll need to become a Prime member.

You can enjoy 30 days free of Amazon Prime - after that point, you can either cancel your subscription, or sign up for:

  • Prime Video: offers access to all that Amazon Prime Video, but not any of the other perks of Amazon Prime, and costs £5.99 per month
  • Amazon Prime: gives you full access to everything that Amazon Prime has to offer, including Prime Video, premium delivery, photo storage and music streaming. Costs £7.99 per month
  • Prime annual: has all the perks of Amazon Prime, but charges you annually instead of monthly. Touted by Amazon as the “best value” deal, it costs £79 per year
  • Prime Student: students can enjoy a six month trial of Amazon Prime for free, and thereafter is half price, at £3.99 per month

We won’t know for sure what deals will be available on Amazon Prime Day until the day itself, but there are early technology deals which are available now.

Here are a few of the highlights:
