What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is an annual deal event for Amazon Prime members, where products are discounted across the site in every category from Home & Garden to Toys.

Amazon Prime Day started in 2015 to celebrate Amazon's 20th birthday, and it's become a permanent fixture in the calendar ever since. Last year's Amazon Prime Day was the biggest shopping day in Amazon's history.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Historically, Amazon Prime Day has always been held in July, but this year it will take place on 13th and 14th October.

Do I need to have Amazon Prime in order to shop the Amazon Prime Day deals?

Yes, the deals are exclusively for Amazon Prime members, so you will need an Amazon Prime account. You can currently sign up for a free 30-day trial of the service. Once that expires, Prime membership costs £7.99 per month, and you can cancel at any time.

What are the best deals on Amazon Prime Day?

Judging by past years, you can expect Amazon to discounted most of its own-brand devices. Video doorbells, security lighting and HD security cameras featured strongly in Amazon's Black Friday offering in 2019.

Amazon have already started some deals, including 40% off their Echo dot,  and we expect they'll drop the price of their Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet and their Kindle Oasis on Monday at midnight – bookmark these links now if you don't want to lose out!

How do I find a deal on Amazon Prime?

Easy! Click 'today's deals' and choose from their lightning deals (the clue is in the name; they're gone in a flash!), deals under £15, or deals by category – for example Home & Garden, Toys & Games, Beauty etc.

What should I buy on Amazon Prime Day?

Don't fall for the impulse buying trap – and plan ahead instead. Think ahead about what you're going to be wanting or needing this winter, from seasonal items like Halloween decor and costumes, Christmas decorations and Christmas gifts, to homeware updates like bedding, kitchenware, art supplies or even pet items.

Our tips for finding chic and stylish items on Amazon

We know that Amazon can be a bit of a minefield, so we've put together an edit of our favourite home decor pieces on Amazon

We also recommend the following tips:

1. Be specific. Rather than searching for throws, type 'herringbone throw', and rather than aimlessly browsing rugs, search 'berber rug'. 

2. Search for brands you know and trust – for example KitchenAid, Alessi, Staub and Le Creuset.
