What is Amazon Prime Day?

2017's Prime Day is the third of its kind. The first was in the summer of 2015 when Amazon was celebrating its 20th birthday, but it was such a success that it has now become an annual deals event.

Amazon Prime Day is bigger and better than ever, with deals as huge and as plentiful as they are on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. They're only for Amazon Prime customers, though, so you'll need to sign up to Amazon Prime or its 30-day free trial to take advantage of the offers.

Amazon Prime Day tips

  1. Join us right here on this page for a curated list of the best deals. Amazon will cut the prices on thousands of products so let us do the hard work for you to help you make the most out of it.
  2. Use the Watch this Deal button on upcoming deals to make sure you don't miss them.
  3. Join the Waitlist for products that say 100% claimed, because people often change their minds and don't buy. You'll get a notification to alert you if more become available.
  4. Choose No-Rush delivery to earn rewards.

How to get Amazon Prime

As mentioned, the catch is that you'll need to be an Amazon Prime customer in order to take advantage of the deals.

Amazon offers a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, and even free trial Prime members can get Amazon Prime Day deals. You can sign up to the Amazon Prime free trial here.

You can find out more about Amazon Prime and the huge number of features it offers for that £79 per year fee in our complete guide to Amazon Prime. Also visit: Netflix vs Amazon Prime Video.

Be sure to cancel your subscription before your free trial ends to avoid being charged. Find out more about how to cancel your subscription properly here.

If you've previously had a free trial of Amazon Prime, you might be surprised to hear that you can do so again if it has been more than a year since your last trial.
