Prime Day takes place on June 21-22, so mark those dates in your diary now.

We'd expect it to run from 00.01 June 21 to 11.59 June 22, but UK times haven't been confirmed yet, but as with Black Friday, deals tend to kick off early.

Last year Prime Day was held in October because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but this year it's back to it's usual time.

How to take part in Prime Day?

You'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to shop the Prime Day sales, as it's only available for Prime Day members.

New members will be able to make the most of a 30-day trial, and you can sign up here. Just remember to cancel your membership after the trial is up.

Where to find the best Amazon Prime deals this Prime Day?

The best deals will be available on Amazon's homepage, where you'll be able to find what's on offer and how long you have left to snap them up. We'll also be listing the best deals here, so be sure to check back.

According to Amazon Prime 'Blue means deal', as Prime Day deals will be colour coded, so look out for blue badges for the best savings.

What should I look out for?

Across the years, some of the most popular deals across Amazon Prime Day, have tended to be discounts on tech, alcohol, and gaming.

Whilst the most popular products differ each year, Prime Day is similar to Black Friday in that it's a great chance to save big.

How to get the best deals?

There's a few tips and tricks we'd recommend for getting the best deals this Prime Day

  1. Make the most of Amazon's wish list function; with a list full of all the products you'd like to buy – so that if they are discounted, shopping is quick and easy.
  2. Make sure you shop around to get the best deal, just because it's discounted on Amazon Prime, doesn't mean it'll be the best deal.
  3. Sites like CamelCamelCamel and Pricey Spy are great tools to check your process.
  4. Finally, download the Amazon app, where you can set up alerts and check prices easily and quickly.

Amazon also recommend using their Watch List to keep track of Lightening Deals on Prime Day.

Amazon Prime's dedicated Prime Day page also has a wealth of advice on how you can set up alerts with Alexa, personalised promotions
