After months of anticipation, Amazon Prime Day 2019 has ended. The event spanned two days for the first time ever, from 15 to 16 July. As one of the biggest shopping events of the year, Prime Day ushered in deals across thousands of products on Amazon. Plus, competing retailers jumped on the bandwagon too and launched their own deals events, some of which are still going strong.
Some of the most popular tech categories on Amazon during Prime Day were video game consoles and headphones, while some of the top selling products were Amazon's own Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote and the Echo Dot 3. The PlayStation Classic and Oral B electric toothbrushes were also popular purchases.
You can still catch great deals post Prime Day 2019 across various tech, like phones, smart home and Amazon devices, speakers, audio, computing, tablets, electric toothbrushes and more, and we're rounding them all up here.
In this article you will also find advice on how to get the best deals on Amazon and from competing sales from Amazon's biggest rivals. Of course, we have tips on bagging the best deals next Prime Day too if you're keen.

When was Amazon Prime Day 2019?
Prime Day began 00:01 BST on Monday 15 July, and finished at 11:59 on Tuesday 16 July, marking the first time the sale has continued for 2 days straight.
In 2018, the event was a day and a half long rather than the usual one day.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day 2019 is the fifth annual Prime Day Amazon has hosted. 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 a yearly deals event.
2018's Prime Day featured more than one million deals globally, and Amazon delivered 40% more Spotlight deals in the UK than in 2017.
It's available for Prime members only, so you'll need to be signed up to Amazon Prime in order to take advantage of Prime deals. Sign up to Amazon's 30-day free trial to get access to deals next year.
If you're new to Amazon Prime and want to find out more about it, we have an article all about Amazon Prime benefits here.

Amazon Prime Day Launches
In addition to making Prime Day longer in 2018, Amazon introduced a new initiative called Prime Day Launches, which have returned for 2019. These are brand new products and special-editions that are available exclusively to Prime members first. See our full coverage of Prime Day launches.

- Consider turning on Amazon's 1-click purchase option.
- Use the Watch this Deal button on upcoming deals you see on Amazon's website, to make sure you don't miss them.
