It’s Prime Day! As Amazon’s annual shopping bonanza returns for 48 hours, FEMAIL reveals the best savings on everything from tech to beauty from the retailer and its high street rivals
- Amazon has slashed the prices across hundreds of items to offer limited edition deals to Prime members
- Majority of the offers are only available until tomorrow, so you’d better be quick to bag yourself a bargain
- FEMAIL has rounded up a selection of the best deals on homeware, tech and lifestyle to suit all budgets
The annual shopping extravaganza sees Prime members across the globe treated to great discounts across all categories including huge savings on Amazon Devices, up to 50 per cent off makeup from L’Oreal Paris, Rimmel, Maybelline and Real Techniques and up to up to 30 per cent off toy brands including Barbie, Fisher Price and Hot Wheels.
How to become an Amazon Prime member
To be eligible for the deals and discounts on Prime Day, shoppers need to be an Amazon Prime member.
If you’re not yet a member and want to take advantage of the deals on Prime Day, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial.
Promotions were unveiled in the early hours of Monday and will run until midnight on Tuesday as customers rush to get their hands on the best deals – which include up to 35 per cent off smartphones from Samsung and Garmin and up to 30 per cent off large appliances.
This year’s summer dates for Prime Day mark a return to the norm for the company; historically Amazon has held its shopping extravaganza in mid-July but delayed the event until October in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To get the best bargains, UK-based banking service thinkmoney offered their top tips – including using the Lightning Deals, where items are cheaper for just 30 minutes, asking Alexa to make a purchase if you’re short on time and create a priority order wish-life beforehand so you don’t overspend.
The firm also noted customers should make the most of the extra £6 you can get for every £50 gift card you purchase; the offer is limited to one reward per Amazon account and for new Top Up customers only.
