Amazon Prime Day is only a few weeks away and once again we’ll bring you all the very best Prime Day deals right here throughout the Prime Day period.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2019?
We haven’t had it confirmed by Amazon UK, but based on past dates we predicted the deals would start flowing on July 15-16. These dates have now been backed up by a leaked email.
Last year Amazon Prime Day deals took place across 16-17 July. In July 2017 it was 10-11 July.
Prime Day, as the name suggests, is centred around a 24-hour period. However, there may be other deals in the lead-up to the big day itself and Prime Day deals were actually offered across 36 hours in 2018.
Do I need to be a Prime member to get Amazon Prime Day deals?
Yes – to get Amazon Prime deals you need to be a Prime member. If you’re not, it’s high time you signed up for Prime membership – you get 30-days free membership if you’ve not been a member before. It costs £79 a year (or £7.99 a month, if you can’t stretch to the one-off payment).
Some of the very best deals are always on Amazon devices, but there are stacks across all product categories such as TV, laptops, smart home, fitness, cameras, gaming and more.

Amazon Prime Day 2019 tips and tricks
Get an Amazon Prime free trial to get the deals
Amazon Prime costs £79 a year. You can, however, sign up for a free 30-day trial to get the deals. A neat trick is that you are fully entitled to cancel your Amazon Prime subscription after once you’ve got your shopping deal.
As long as you cancel the trial before the end you won’t be charged the £79 / $99 yearly subscription. Amazon hopes though that once you’ve enjoyed some of the benefits you won’t hit the cancel button.
Don’t miss an Amazon Prime Day deal
Get the dedicated Amazon shopping app on your mobile and turn on notifications. Within the notifications settings you can turn on “Watched” and “Waitlisted Deals” so you don’t miss it.
Save even more money on your Amazon Prime Day deal
Get £1 back by opting for No-Rush Delivery if you don’t need your new bargain straight away.
Make a list to get the best deals
Rather than going in with a scattergun approach, make a list before you go onto Amazon and be targeted about the products you want. It might be in July, but Amazon Prime Day is a perfect chance to do your Christmas shopping on the cheap.
It’s sure to be a big day for deals on Amazon Prime Day 2019. Hitwise data reveals that the volume of Prime Day web searches last year were up 57% compared to the previous year and on the day of Prime Day’s official announcement, searches unsurprisingly increased 162%
Amazon’s own devices are the most popular products on Prime Day. Echo Dot and Kindle were the most viewed product pages in the days leading up to the announcement of the sale. There were also 68,000 visits to the Nintendo Switch product page around Prime Day last year, too, in anticipation of a decent Nintendo Switch deal.
