The Amazon Prime Day event is one of the biggest online discounted sale days of the year, but it’s important you know how to make the best if it, so follow our guide with our tips for the event.
This year’s Amazon Prime Day will, for the first time, last 48 hours. That’s an extra 12 hours on top of last year’s event, which means there’s plenty of time for you to find the deals you want on everything from game consoles, hair straighteners, coffee machines, cookware, Amazon devices, TVs and smartphones.
How to get the best deals this year
When it comes to making the most of Amazon Prime Day, preparation is key. Don’t fall at the first hurdle either: you need to be a Prime Member, so start a free 30-day trial if you’re not already a member.
The IndyBest team will be rounding up the best deals to help you navigate through everything that will be on offer, so make sure to check our daily deals page for the best early deals before the sale, which will be updated every day.
Last year, the retailer also released a list of products ahead of the sale so that shoppers were ready to add them to their shopping basket the minute it started.
If you add items you’ve got your eye on to your Amazon wish list, you’ll get a notification if any of these products have deals on.
Another way to ensure you get the best deals is to download the Amazon app. This will give you a head start, as you will be able to track Lightning Deals – discounts that are only available for a few hours at a time – and set up alerts that will notify you when certain deals go live.
We also suggest sticking to a shopping list of items that you know you actually want, and setting yourself a budget.
Is Amazon Prime Day worth it?
Our tech editor, Andrew Griffin, says Amazon Prime Day can be a really good opportunity to get some good deals. But, he says, “don’t get lured in by the things you don’t want.”
“I think the only way to ensure you aren’t caught out is to decide what you want to buy in advance.
“If you want a TV, then decide on the size and features you want and get a sense for what sort of price you would expect to pay.”
Oli Townsend, deals expert at MoneySavingExpert.com, says: “If there’s something you’re after, do your research before buying. Other retailers such as AO, Currys, eBay and John Lewis & Partners are likely to offer their own competitive deals during the two days.
"You can use price comparison tools such as Google Shopping or Price Spy to find where an item’s cheapest, and check historical Amazon pricing using price tracker CamelCamelCamel – that way you’ll see if it’s actually a deal at all.”
Which deals can you expect in 2019?
There’s already early Prime Day deals available on Amazon's website. Check our daily deals page for the most up to date offers, but do remember that some of these deals are expected to be even lower on the actual sale days.
As usual, there will be heavy discounts on Amazon’s own devices, along with 30 per cent off swimwear, 40 per cent off some fashion brands, as well as other tech products and home appliances.
What were the best deals last year?
Last year, some of the best deals on Prime Day were on Amazon’s own-brand devices, with discounts of up to 50 per cent on items, including Kindles and Fire HDMI Sticks which dropped in price from £229.99 to £179.99, the Fire stick went from £39.99 to £24.99, respectively.
Other discounts included 30 per cent off TVs from LG and Sony, 50 per cent off coffee machines, 45 per cent off home security kits, 40 per cent off robot vacuum cleaners like Neato and iRobot and 30 per cent off sports brands such as Puma and New Balance.
