What else will be on offer on Prime Day?

While Alexa-powered devices are one of Amazon’s biggest product ranges, they will be far from the only items seeing great discounts. Amazon’s services are also seeing some great offers – including Kindle Unlimited, Prime Video Channels and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Tech is an area that always sees great deals – and Prime Day is no different. Expect to see the iPhone 11 and PS4 and at some truly great prices with the release of the iPhone 12, PS5 and Xbox Series X so close, as well as some reasonable discounts on newer mobiles such as the Nokia 8.3 5G and the Google Pixel 4A.

You can also help small businesses by buying from them on Amazon – and you’ll get £10 credit to spend on Prime Day. Look out for a special icon on compatible products to use this promotion.

The Amazon app can also be incredibly useful if you’re after a specific product – some deals were revealed on the app a week in advance last year.

Remember only Prime Members can access the deals – sign up to a 30 day Amazon Prime free trial.

What Echo deals were available on Prime Day 2019?

Last year saw a 20 per cent discount on Amazon devices, though a few gadgets saw even better savings – the Echo Dot‘s sale price was better than half price at £22.

For those audio obsessives out there, the Echo Studio takes Alexa and places the virtual assistant into Amazon’s biggest and best Echo yet. Sporting not one, not two, but five speakers, as well as the ability to play 3D audio and automatically adapt to the acoustics in any room, the Echo Studio really earns the name smart speaker.
