The best deals now avaliable on Amazon Prime

They’re the airpods in everyone’s ears - and for good reason. With active noise cancelling, transparency mode to allow you to interact with the world around you, crystal clear sound, and 3D audio and an oh-so-comfortable fit, it’s worth shelling out for a pair of Apple Airpods.

And with 25% off? (a mark down from £239 to £179) - now’s the time to buy.

If you’re after a cordless vacuum with great suction and a hefty run time, this popular Shark model is a winner.

Our reviewer loved it “Aside from its anti-hair wrap technology, the very best thing about this model is that the suction tube can be articulated for easier access under low furnishings and beds. This is an ingenious innovation that’s as simple as it is effective. Even better, if the hand unit is folded over completely, the Shark can be stored upright in a small cupboard.”

With 35% off, it’s a canny time to invest - that’s a mark down frmo £350 to £229. A bargain.

LEGO is an age-old favourite, among kids and keen adults alike, and there are currently choice deals to be snapped up on many of their best-selling sets, with up to 42% off - check the deals out here.

We’re keen on this Darth Vader Helmet, 25% off, down from £60 to £44.

Sleep-tech firm Simba is offering customers the chance to take advantage of up to 50% off across mattresses, duvets, toppers and pillows.

It’s a fab deal - and our choice would be to invest in a Simba’s Hybrid Luxe mattress is supremely comfy. From our review:

“It features a combo of foam and Titanium Aerocoil Spring-Comfort layers which, although make for quite a heavy mattress (you might need an extra pair of hands to carry it through your home), provides enhanced airflow and that hug feeling you get from a good quality mattress. Plus, a 100% natural wool top layer aids with temperature regulation, though if you run hot it might still be a little on the warm side.

The Hybrid Luxe has a firm feel about it, so it’s a popular choice for those who experience back pain and individuals who require more support, and there’s absolutely no motion transfer, so you can snooze soundly even if your partner moves a lot during the night.”

There’s 45% off - that means UK King Size: WAS £1,649 and is now £906.95, or a UK Double: WAS £1,499, and is now NOW £824.45

An Amazon exclusive, this copper option from cult food gadget brand Ninja is a smart buy if you’ve a household to feed.

And the air fry function allows you to cook with 75% less oil, making it a healthy option for those looking to cuts fat and calories in their diet.

The Nintendo Switch OLED is the fourth and latest iteration of Nintendo's home console.

Wondering what the difference is between the Nintendo OLED and the flagship Nintendo Switch? In short, the visuals are superior on the OLED model, hence the slightly higher price point. The OLED provides better colour accuracy, higher contrast, and overall better picture performance, double the storage space as the flagship. Care a great deal about graphics? The stunning gameplay on the OLED is worth forking a little extra out for.

The main reason to pick up a Nintendo Switch OLED is to play games: and the options are fabulous. The library is groaning with timeless classics, from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Animal Crossing: New HorizonsSuper Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

You can also find some fabulous indie games, from Hades, Celeste, to Spelunky - there really is something for everyone.

After a fabulous, leading brand 5in Smart TV for almost half price?
