Amazon Prime Day is set to begin in just over 72 hours time, and while it may not be a real holiday it's worth looking forward to just to see what sort of discounts will be available. Probably nothing you desperately need, only things you might sort of want but could easily live without. The whole point is that the discounts are supposed to make you want to buy more, after all.
Amazon have just sent out a taste of the discounts that we can expect to see when Prime Day kicks off on Monday afternoon, including the expected money off certain Amazon-made devices:
- £35 off the Kindle Paperwhite, Prime Day price, £74.99 (was £109.00)
- £40 off Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet, Prime Day price, £59.99 (was £99.99)
- £40 off Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet, Prime Day price, £89.99 (was £129.99)
- Up to 30% off Sony and Canon Cameras
- Up to 30% off TVs from LG, Sony, Toshiba and more
- Up to 30% off premium brands with Amazon Fashion including G-Star, Pepe Jeans and more
- Up to 30% off projectors from Epson, Optoma, LG and Sony
- Up to 30% off Sennheiser, Bose and Sony Headphones
- Up to 55% off Samsonite and American Tourister Luggage
- Up to 30% off Keter Garden Furniture and Storage
- Up to 40% off Kitchen and Home appliances including Crock-Pot, Tefal and Philips
- Up to 30% off Audio Technica, Ion Audio and Hercules
There are a lot of big brands there, but obviously there's going to be a lot more when the day itself arrives. I wouldn't be surprised if most Amazon devices got some sort of discount, especially the Echo Dot which goes on sale more often than a DFS sofa. Over the 36 hour prime Day 'festivities' Amazon also says there will be over a million discounts, and 40 per cent more spotlight deals in the UK. Which is nice, if you can navigate all those deals to find what you're looking for.
Prime Day begins on Monday 16th July at 12 noon, and continues for 36 hours until midnight on 17th July.
