Amazon Prime Day is finally here – and it’s perfect timing for early birds who are already making a start on their Christmas shopping.
How to become an Amazon Prime member
To be eligible for the deals and discounts on Prime Day, shoppers need to be an Amazon Prime member.
If you’re not yet a member and want to take advantage of the deals on Prime Day, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial.
The annual extravaganza usually takes place in July, but was postponed to October 13-14 this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, it’s back and bigger than ever, with Prime members across the globe treated to great discounts across all categories including huge savings on Amazon Devices, up to 30 per cent off a wide selection of toys and games and up to 45 per cent off across menswear, womenswear and children’s clothing.
This year’s highlights include a Simba Hybrid Essential Mattress, reduced from £555 to £285.48 – a huge saving of £269.52 – and a Fire HD 10 tablet which has been discounted from £89.99 to £44.99.
If you’ve embraced the DIY trend during lockdown, the 48-hour sale offers up to 30 per cent discounts on home improvement items from top brands including Bosch, HIVE, Flymo and more.
With more restrictions likely on the way, meaning many Brits will be spending additional time in their homes once again, shoppers can also enjoy 20 per cent off TVs from brands including Samsung, LG, Philips and Panasonic, and 30 per cent on home theatre projectors and soundbars from the likes of Epson, Bose and LG.
And it’s not just Amazon; rival retailers have also unveiled a host of bargains across homeware, technology and fashion and beauty.
With the festive season fast approaching, savvy shoppers can get a great jumpstart on their gift lists.
