What is Amazon Prime Day?

Now in its third year, Amazon Prime Day is a day in July dedicated to special offers and deals on products sold by Amazon. Limited numbers of items will be sold in flash sales – this is often where you’ll find the best offers. New offers will be added as often as every five minutes, and we’ll be updating this page with the best new deals throughout the day. Keep it bookmarked!

When is Amazon Prime Day?

July 10-11. It starts at 6pm on Monday July 10 and runs until the end of Tuesday 11.

Do students get better deals?

With their Prime subscription, yes. If you sign up for Amazon Student through your university, you’ll get the first six months of Prime free, and then you’ll only pay £39 per year, rather than the £79 normal Prime subscription. With a Prime subscription you’ll get free one-day delivery, free access to Amazon’s Instant Video Prime library, and the opportunity to get a super-cheap Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.

Do I need to be a Prime member to access the deals?

Yes – but that doesn’t mean you have to pay anything yet.

You can sign up for a free Prime trial on Prime Day to see what the benefits are like. After the trial period ends you’ll automatically be billed for a Prime subscription unless you cancel it.
