Let the countdown begin! Amazon Prime Day is just around the corner and soon, we'll be privy to the massive savings event and we’re practically chomping at the bit to get in on all of the amazing discounts. While the sales bonanza won’t officially kick off until midnight tonight you don’t have to wait to start saving.

In addition to all the great everyday deals we regularly see on the site, the mega-retailer has dropped several early deals exclusively for its Prime Members. What's more, members who elect to support small businesses by shopping their stores through Amazon ahead of the big day will also earn a £10 credit to use for Prime Day 2020

What is Prime Day? 
Prime Day is an annual savings event hosted by Amazon exclusively for its members (sign up here for a free 30-day trial; then pay £7.99 per month) with some of the very best discounts you’ll see on top-rated items across the site all year long.

Last year Amazon sold over 175 million items during the Prime Day sale and with so many of us relying on online shopping due to the Covid-19 pandemic that record is likely to be broken this year. 

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020? 
While Prime Day is usually held during peak summer months (last year’s event fell on July 15), this year’s savings event was delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The massive sale will now unofficially kick off the holiday shopping season for shoppers. The event will start at 12:01 AM on Tuesday 13 October and end at 11:59 PM on Wednesday 14 October. 

How does Amazon Prime Day work? 
In order to shop the best Prime Day deals, you’ll have to sign up to become an Amazon Prime member. These discounts include everything from price drops on popular items to savings on Amazon's coveted subscription services, such as Audible Premium Plus, Amazon Music and more.

While most markdowns will come on the aforementioned dates, early deals are already dropping (shop our faves below), so keep checking back on our deals page for all the latest savings.

What’s different this year?

Along with the usual batch of deals, Amazon is putting special emphasis on supporting small businesses this year.

Anyone who spends £10 on products from selected small businesses in the weeks before Prime Day will be eligible to claim £10 credit to spend on October 13 or 14.

Details about the Amazon small business promotion can be found on the Amazon Storefronts page.
