What is Amazon Prime Day?

Black Friday, the day (now week-long) retail sale event in November has become a household phrase and national occasion since it took to the UK shores from the USA back in 2010, thanks to Amazon. But while Black Friday has taken on a life of its own with almost every retailer scrambling to slash prices and encourage impulse spending, Amazon has decided to step out on its own and have a solo bargain sales event, known as Amazon Prime Day. However, Amazon announced some early non-camera deals for its Alexa customers on Wednesday, July 5.

How does Amazon Prime Day work?

The 30-hour “day” of deals is available to Amazon Prime customers only. So to take advantage of the deals you’ll have to sign up to Amazon’s premium speedy delivery service, which costs £79 per year. In the build up to Amazon Prime day, the company is offering one-month free sign-up trials.
