Coming next Tuesday ….. Amazon Prime Day is back with discounts galore

Last year, to celebrate its 20th anniversary, Amazon ran Amazon Prime Day.  This was a one-off event, similar to Black Friday, where it offered a large number of very special deals at regular intervals during the day.

Amazon must have been happy with its sales, because it is repeating Amazon Prime Day next Tuesday 12th July.

You MUST be a member of Amazon Prime in order to take part.  However …. nothing stops you signing up for a FREE 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime via this link and then cancelling the next day (or, more sensibly, 29 days later!).  Amazon actually encouraged this last year, knowing that a good percentage of people will decide to keep it.

Amazon Prime Day 2016

The deals last year included:

Bose QuietComfort 20 noise cancelling headphones for Android, Windows and Blackberry phones, £129.95 (50% off)

Fire TV Stick, £19 (46% off)

Kindle, £39.99 (£20 off)

Lenovo FLEX 10 10.1-inch multimode touchscreen notebook, £129.99 (54% off)

Xbox One 1TB with Half: The Master Chief collection and extra wireless controller, £329 (18% off)

PS4 1TB, PlayStation TV and Destiny, £329 (14% off)

Buy an Amazon gift card for £50 and receive a bonus £10 promotional code

Remember that these were typical 2015 deals – you will NOT see identical deals this time.  However, we can expect to see something similar.

There are some ‘pre Amazon Prime Day’ deals already available on this page of

Amazon Prime has a lot to offer so it is worth signing up for a 30 day trial.  As well as being able to take part in Amazon Prime Day, you will also receive:

Unlimited ‘next day’ delivery

Unlimited TV and movie downloads via the Prime streaming service

Unlimited photo storage

Ad-free albums, playlists and stations with Prime Music

After your free 30-day trial, you can continue at £7.99 per month or save by paying £79 upfront for 12 months.

We will do another article on Amazon Prime Day on the 12th when we have more details of what offers will be available.

  1. Prime is excellent. It’d be amazing if the Bose QC35 were in at a similar deal this time around, although they’re much newer so I doubt it!

  2. Will Squires says

    If you’re taking out a trial there’s no benefit to waiting 30 days over cancelling straight away – your prime membership will run until the end of the trial either way.

    I’d argue it’s far smarter to cancel straight away so there’s no risk you’ll forget.

      “Buy an Amazon gift card for £50 and receive a bonus £10 promotional code”.

      Can you buy it for yourself and use the gift card to buy another Amazon Prime Day gift!?

      Not that I have Amazon Prime at the moment. I tried it a couple of months ago to watch Games Of Thrones; I thought I could watch that for free.

    • Fair point.

  3. What’s the validity check on new amazon accounts? Is it only email address? Also, I’m assuming I’ll be able to buy a gift card and apply it on another account?

  4. Thanks for heads up on this.
