Amazon is one of the biggest players in the deals game. With such a huge range of products, you’re bound to find a great deal at any time of the year. Here, we bring you our pick of the very best Amazon deals, and some top tips to help make sure you don’t miss out on a bargain.
Best Amazon deals right now
Here's our pick of the best deals in tech from across Amazon. We'll include Amazon's own products such as its Echo smart speaker range, Kindles and Fire products here, as well as deals from the rest of Amazon's catalogue.
Amazon Fire TV Stick, Alexa Voice Remote and Echo Dot Bundle
Now: £79.98 (£10 off)
Amazon is having an early start to Easter this year. From Monday 19 March 2018, the company will start a mega sale on everything from electronics to garden furniture. You can, of course, expect deals on Amazon devices as well. You can see some of its early Easter deals here.
Right now, however, you can get £10 off Amazon's Echo Dot and £10 off a Paperwhite bundle that comes with the 6in e-reader, power adapter and case. Additionally, if you buy two Amazon Echo 2 devices at the standard price of £89.99, Amazon will automatically knock off £25 at checkout. This "£25 off when buying two" deal also applies to Echo 2 and various Philips Hue smart lighting bundles. The bundle prices range from £129.99 to £217.99 depending on which light you prefer, but you can choose between white or two colour options.
Our US visitors may be happy to know they can also save $15 on the Echo 2, and up to $57 on a number of Echo 2 and smart home bundles.
Additionally, Amazon just launched its "far-field voice control" feature on the Fire TV, which means you can control the Fire TV hands-free with Alexa, via an Amazon device. To celebrate this milestone, Amazon is offering £20 off a bundle deal (compared to buying separately) that gets you the Fire TV Stick, an Alexa Voice remote and Echo Dot for £79.98.
How to get the best Amazon deals this month
You can also find excellent deals on Amazon at any time of the year. The online retailer offers new Deals of the Day every day.
Deals of the Day tend to be discounted products that Amazon has a significant amount of stock for, but you’ll still want to grab them quickly as they’re bound to fly off the shelves.
Even more tricky to get hold of are Lightning Deals. There are lots of them every day, and they last for a very limited time with very limited stock.
We’d recommend signing up for Amazon Prime now if you haven’t done so already. You can get a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime, or sign up for a year for £79. Click here to go to Amazon's sign up page.
If you're a student, you can also get Amazon Prime for free for 6 months. After that, it's only £3.99 per month, or £39 annually (depending on which plan you choose), which is half the price of a regular subscription. Click here to sign up for Amazon Prime Student.
All Prime members, even those on the free trial, get access to Amazon’s Lightning Deals 30 minutes early. For the best deals, that could be the difference between bagging a bargain and missing out completely. Plus, with Prime you’ll also get free next day delivery and access to additional features such as Amazon Prime Video.
