Amazon have officially announced Amazon Prime Day, the biggest online shopping day of the year outside of Black Friday.

I’m here to ensure all of you have eyes on the best deals in the UK for Amazon Prime Day, and also the deals on the run up to Amazon Prime Day. Early Amazon Prime Day deals have already begun, and as promised, they’re displayed below.

Amazon Music Unlimited is usually £9.99 a month, or £7.99 a month if you’re an Amazon Prime member, which means you’ll be saving a load of money with this amazing early Amazon Prime Day deal. Amazon Music Unlimited has 40 million songs in its arsenal, with new releases everyday from today’s most popular artists. Amazon Music Unlimited, by nature, compatible with Amazon’s smart speaker devices.
Amazon Prime Video is a big-game player in the video streaming sector already, boasting rights to the most expensive upcoming TV series, Lord of the Rings. Amazon also let you add premium channels as add-ons via Amazon Video, and an early Amazon Prime Day deal is being able to get 3 months worth of Discovery, Shudder, BFI and MGM as add-ons for a free trial.

What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is Amazon’s way of rewarding Prime members by offering great discounts over a range of categories. Last year, deals lasted for 30 hours. However, deals will be extended to 36 hours this time around. While many consider Amazon Prime Day just another Black Friday, that’s not necessarily the case. According to Amazon, Black Friday is about buying gifts for others (as it’s just before Christmas), but Prime Day is all about treating yourself.
A lightning deal is a promotion in which discounts are offered on an item for a short period of time, and usually with limited stock. Follow either of our social pages (Facebook / Twitter) to get a comprehensive list of lightning deals for Amazon Prime Day. We’ll display exactly what and when lightning deals go live to ensure you’re prepared for the best of them.

What Deals to Expect on Amazon Prime Day
As usual with Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday, Amazon devices will almost certainly be on sale, so expect discounts on the Fire Stick, Fire Tablets, Kindle and Echo. Last year, we also saw a £50 Amazon gift card going for £45 and I’m predicting another gift card deal along the same lines. In particular, console and gaming subscriptions deals were decent – a PS4 bundled with two games and an additional controller selling at £199.99 was a headline deal and a 15 month PS Plus subscription sold at £29.99.
