In the UK no retailer comes close to Amazon's product range, and while rivals are getting more competitive when it comes to pricing, Amazon is often still hard to beat. It has its own line of tablets, smart speakers, media streamers and e-book readers that offer unparalleled value, but it's also the number-one destination for the best deals on tech from other manufacturers.
Amazon's Last Minute Christmas Deals sale is now live and runs until 23 December. You could spend hours going through it all, but you don't need to because we've done it for you.

How to get the best Amazon deals
Amazon hosts excellent deals throughout the year and updates its 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 the best ones will fly off the shelves, especially as we approach the Christmas shopping season.
Even more tricky to grab before they’re gone are Lightning Deals. There are lots of them every day, and they last for a very limited time with very limited stock. This year for Prime Day Amazon did Featured Lightning Deals, which go even quicker.
To make sure you don’t miss out, we’d recommend signing up for Amazon Prime. You can get a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, or sign up for a year for £79 or £7.99 per month. In the US it’s $119 per year or $12.99 per month.
Amazon Prime gets you more than just early access to deals. You’ll also get free next day delivery (sometimes items are even delivered on the day you order them), access to Amazon Prime Video (a TV and movie streaming service that rivals Netflix and Now TV) and more. Check out all of the Prime features on Amazon’s website.
If you’re a student, you can get Amazon Prime for free for six months. After that it’s only £3.99/$6.49 per month, or £39/$59 annually, which is half the price of a regular subscription. Click here to sign up for Amazon Prime Student.
The top Amazon deals we’ve listed here are across the entire range of products that the company stocks, but Amazon often offers incredible deals on its own products too. You can see the best Amazon Echo deals from across the web in our round-up here.
Look out for Echo bundle deals, especially on new products. Choose the product you’re looking to buy and you’ll see the bundles available beneath the colour options. You may also spot that buying two Echo devices can get you a discount. Details of those deals will be shown beneath the price.
Amazon Warehouse deals
We’ve not included Warehouse deals in our top deals from Amazon, but it’s well worth having a look there. Amazon Warehouse items can be incredibly cheap, but they are open-box and returned items. Amazon will have ensured that the product is in working order, and will price it based on quality. You’ll find everything from laptops and phones to video games and toys available there.
Amazon certified refurbished devices
Another place worth checking if you’re looking for one of Amazon’s own devices is its certified refurbished offering. Amazon repairs and tests all of its refurbished devices rigorously and provides a one year warranty - which means you can rest assured that the device will work just as new.
For our pick of the best Amazon deals, see the list below.

When do Christmas and Boxing Day sales start?
Now that it's December, Christmas sales are in full swing – so if you missed Black Friday and Cyber Week sales, you still have a chance to get a discount on the tech you love. We'd recommend not waiting any longer if you're gift shopping for Christmas. You don't want to compete for delivery times and miss a 25 December arrival.
If you're not in a rush, there's Boxing Day, which is on Saturday 26 December. Boxing Day is yet another opportunity to pick up a discount before the year ends.
You can also use Boxing Day to get a better price on anything you bought over the Back Friday and Cyber Monday period. Be sure to check the returns policy of the retailer you've shopped from, to see if the returns period extends to Boxing Day. If it does, simply get the same item for a lower price if you're able to, and request a refund on your original purchase.
Amazon's returns window is typically 30 days, but this year it's allowing shoppers to return items until 31 January if bought between 1 October and 31 December.
