Amazon is having a 24-hour flash sale with amazing reductions on a wide range of categories. Here's what you need to know to take advantage of the savings and just some of the bargains on offer. Be warned – you need to grab them quick!
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is a shopping event exclusively for Amazon's paying Prime subscribers – but non-paying members can still get involved for free, by signing up to its one-month free trial. Just remember to cancel your membership before the 30-day trial ends to avoid paying the £79 annual fee.
What does Prime offer?
Prime users get access to unlimited one-day delivery as well as other perks – including streaming video, music, ebook rental and photo storage.
What kind of bargains can I get?
Amazon's Prime Day sale will include deals across a wide range of categories including PCs and laptops, electronics, toys, video games, DVDs, books, fashion, baby, health, beauty, sports and more.
There are two different types of deals: Lightning Deals, which run for a fixed period of time with a finite number available, and Deals of the Day, which run for a 24-hour period.
To avoid missing out, you can add them to a watchlist ahead of time and activate notifications on the Amazon smartphone app when they go live.
