Save even more money on your Amazon Prime Day deal

Get £1 back by opting for No-Rush Delivery if you don't need your new bargain straight away.

Make a list to get the best deals

Rather than going in with a scattergun approach, make a list before you go onto Amazon and be targeted about the products you want. It might be in July, but Amazon Prime Day is a perfect chance to do your Christmas shopping on the cheap.

It's a big day for deals on any Amazon Prime Day. Hitwise data reveals that the volume of Prime Day web searches in 2018 were up 57% compared to the previous year and on the day of Prime Day's official announcement, searches unsurprisingly increased 162%

Amazon's own devices are the most popular products on Prime Day. In 2018, Echo Dot and Kindle were the most viewed product pages in the days leading up to the announcement of the sale. 

Tips from Uswitch.com's tech and deals expert Catherine Hiley

1. Plan ahead 

Amazon Prime Day is an excellent opportunity to take advantage of big discounts to Amazon’s flagship technology, including its streaming sticks, Echo and Kindle devices. If you’ve been looking to get your hands on this tech, now could be your chance. 

2. Know your budget

Set yourself a spending limit. Impulse-buying without strict spending rules will likely result in purchasing items you don’t need, ending up with a pile of items you don’t want.

3. Time to subscribe to Amazon Prime​

In the run-up to Amazon Prime Day, be on the lookout for discounts to Amazon Prime memberships. Deals are often launched in the run-up to get people subscribed before the event starts. 

4. Know your rights

The Consumer Rights Act says goods should be of satisfactory quality, fit to do the job intended, and last a reasonable length of time. This right is limited to 30 days from the date you buy your product. If you’re unhappy with the item, it’s worth knowing what the return policy is in advance. 

5. Do your research 

The bottom line is to always check the reviews, as it’s easy to be swayed by clever advertising. If you’re planning to purchase more expensive items, such as smartphones or laptops, look for deals on comparison sites.

Amazon Alexa

If you ask an Alexa-enabled device, such as an Echo or Echo Dot, "Alexa, what are your deals?", you get access to Prime Day deals hours earlier as well as access to exclusive bargains. 

To order something, say, "Alexa, what are your deals" followed by "Alexa, add [the item] to my cart. " Alexa will confirm this, but if you want, you can set up a 4-digit voice shopping pin with the Alexa app to prevent unintended purchases.

Watch out for Lightning deals

Lightning Deals are limited in duration and sometimes end in minutes. To stay on top of everything, use Amazon's app, where you can view many deals 24 hours in advance and sign up for alerts.

Try Amazon Assistant

Amazon Assistant is a browser plugin for Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, and Edge. It's free and easy to install. With it, you can watch for product comparisons that save time and money, access shortcuts to popular Amazon hubs right in your browser, and get notified when deals that you're watching go live with notifications. It also lets you get information about orders and deliveries. Get Amazon Assistant for your browser

Try CamelCamelCamel

If you want to check a deal's price against what Amazon has charged in the past, try CamelCamelCamel. It's a free price tracker that monitors millions of products and alerts you when prices drop so that you can decide if and when to buy.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon Prime Day 2021 is on now - 21-22 June. After last year's shift to the autumn due to the ongoing global situation, this year sees the legendary sale period return to the summer months.

The first Amazon Prime Day took place in 2015 and it's grown massively ever since. It's been a two-day event for the last few years. 

In 2019, Amazon Prime Day took place over 48 hours from 15-16 July and that seemed about the right duration; Amazon was able to sustain a good number of deals for the two days. 

Prime Day, as the name suggests, was previously centred around a 24-hour period, but 2019 was the first 48-hour Prime Day. In 2018 Amazon Prime Day deals took place for 36 hours across 16-17 July. In July 2017 it was 10-11 July.
