Best Amazon Prime day deals 2018
Despite it not being July 16th yet, it seems that some of the deals have already started.
Save £130 when you buy two Echo Shows
While it’s not a discount as such, if you buy two of the brand new Echo Show devices (essentially an Amazon Alexa, but with a screen), then you’ll get £130 off in total, automatically deducted at the checkout from their usual £199.99 price tag.
Pair up with a friend and split the discount, or treat yourself to two for different rooms in the house.
Save an extra 54% off of refurbished Fire 10 HD tablets
If you’re a Prime user, you can bag a bonus 54% off the cost of a Fire HD tablet. There’s plenty of different options to pick from, although no word on when the offer will end.
Amazon has cut the price of their various membership packages in the lead up to the big day, including:
Prime members can get up to 50% off great movies and TV to rent or buy on Prime Video from 3rd to 17th July, including Spiderman Homecoming, Baywatch, Despicable Me 3, Handmaid’s Tale, Suits and Line of Duty.
Prime Video Channels
From 3rd to 17th of July, Prime members can subscribe to some of their favourite TV channels and get 3 months subscription at no extra cost. With no contract needed, Prime members can subscribe to Discovery, Shudder, MGM and BFI Player and stream a range of popular TV shows and movies.
Prime members who haven’t yet tried Amazon Music Unlimited can get four months of the premium, on-demand service with access to tens of millions of songs and hands free listening, for just 99p (usually £7.99 a month or £79 a year for Prime members).
Members can enjoy hundreds of hours of free gameplay as Twitch Prime gives away a free PC game every day through July 18, including titles like Pillars of Eternity and Brutal Legend. Members will also receive exclusive in-game loot for Warframe and PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.
Eligible Prime members can get three months of unlimited reading for no extra cost with a Kindle Unlimited membership.
What other deals can we expect on Prime Day 2018?
Originally created by Amazon, plenty of other UK retailers – especially tech ones – often end up joining in on the Prime Day party, with the likes of Currys, Argos and John Lewis also sometimes slashing their prices, although you often need to wait until the big day to see the bargains.
If the last two years are anything to go by, we can expect a big discount on Amazon’s own smart speakers the Amazon Echo and Echo dot.
Usually, this means the price of Google’s rival device, the Google Home, also gets cut too, from the likes of Currys and John Lewis.
You can also bet that the likes of Kindles, Fire TV Sticks and Fire Tablets will also be a lot cheaper than usual too, being Amazon’s own brand products.
In terms of other, non-Amazon made products, 4K TVs and laptops are always up for discount, being some of the best selling items on Black Friday itself.
It’s likely that we’ll also see a few consoles up for sale too, most likely being PS4s and Nintendo Switches.
Smart home products will hopefully make an appearance too, in particular Philips Hue lightbulbs, which we hope will be subject to a slight discount.
We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for any glimpse of offers, and letting you know the best of the best as soon as they land.
At the moment though, Amazon have a lot to keep up with, with several other retailers having slashed the price of stock in anticipation of the big day of bargains. We’ve listed our favourite few below.
- Apple iPhone 6 32GB – £15 per month for 1GB data, plus a £25 upfront cost – from Metrofone
- Acer Iconia 8" tablet – £99 (was £119.99 – from Currys
