Get Half Price Xbox Live Gold For Your Bank Holiday Bonanza Deal of the Day

By Kim Snaith on at

Amazon will use any old excuse to flog us some tat for less than RRP. Today's excuse is that it's a bank holiday, which if you ask us is a pretty reasonable excuse. We're not at work, so we have nothing better to do that laze idly on the sofa in our underpants, exercising our index finger by scrolling through shopping websites mindlessly on our phone's browser, occasionally clicking "add to basket".

Amazon has its fingers crossed that it can be that shopping website you mindlessly browse, and it's hoping you'll also part with some of your hard-earned bank holiday pay by putting on a few deals. Oo-ooh.

Our favourite deal, suitable for you gaming types out there, is one that Amazon likes to pull out fairly regularly, but it's a good buy nonetheless: six months of Xbox Live Gold plus 1,000 coins for Apex Legends for £14.99. Which is the standard price of three months Gold, so it means you're getting the membership half price. We're not entirely sure what you can do with the Apex Legends coins. If you play the free-to-play battle royale, you'll have a better idea than us. You can always gift them to your nephew, who'll enjoy spending them on making his favourite gun glow in the dark or something.

Worry not if you're not into gaming: Amazon hasn't forgot about you. Here's our technologically-charged picks of the day from Amazon's bank holiday Monday sale. Enjoy your bonus day off, you lucky so-and-sos. And our commiserations if you're still having to work. Here, cheer yourself up by buying something nice from Amazon. You've earned it.
