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 right now. We've included 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.
Be sure to act quickly, as most of the best deals are available for one day only.
Amazon Warehouse deals
It's also worth taking a look at Amazon Warehouse. The items available there can be incredibly cheap, but are open-box and used items. Amazon will have ensured that the product is in working order, and will price it based on the product quality. You'll find everything from laptops and phones to video games and toys available there.
Amazon Home Services
In the UK, you can now order services to help you with installation and assembly, through Amazon Home Services. Simply add these services at checkout when you buy TVs, household appliances, smart devices and other qualifying items. You can even order these installation and assembly services if you've bought the products from another retailer. Get help from Amazon Home Services here.
Home Services is available for plumbing, cleaning, outdoor handiwork, electrical work, and more. The service providers are handpicked by Amazon and are all background checked. If you're not happy with any service, Amazon will work with you and the provider to ensure the service is delivered properly, or you get a full refund. See more about Amazon Home services here.
Amazon certified refurbished devices
Amazon also has deals on its smart home devices when you buy them refurbished. Amazon repairs and tests all refurbished devices rigorously and provides a 1 year warranty – which means you can rest assured that the device will work just as new.
For a sense of the price difference, you can usually get a refurbished Echo Dot at £29.99 instead of £44.99 – though at the time of writing a new Echo Dot, now with a £15 discount, costs less than a refurbished one. Meanwhile, a refurbished first generation Echo costs £84.99, instead of £139.99.
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 or $119 if you're in the US.
From May 25th, UK-based Amazon Prime members can also enjoy movies and TV shows with a free 7-day trial of Starz (full price costs £4.99 per month). Starz content is available through the Prime video app on Smart TVs, iOS/Android devices, PlayStation, and of course on Fire tablets and via the Fire TV Stick. Click here to sign up for Starz.
If you're a student, you can also get Amazon Prime for free for 6 months. After that, it's only £3.99/US$6.49 per month, or £39/$59 annually (depending on which plan you choose), which is half the price of a regular subscription in the UK. 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.
