Amason Prime Day is finally upon us. Amazon's attempt at creating a Black Friday in the middle of the year while also boosting its prime memberships. No wonder it now owns 49% of all the e-commerce market in the US.
It doesn't officially start for a few more hours but I will update this post as and when new deals become available.
If you don't have a Prime account you can still get in on the deals by signing up to a 30-day free trial, I know a lot of people that just redo this deal, though I buy so much from Amazon I just fork out for it.
If you are an Amazon Prime Student member you can get £15 off a £60 spend with the code STUDENT15
As always with Amazon sales, they are pushing their own devices so you can pick up the Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation) with £15 off for £34.99 – a great way to get into the smart home world
Other highlights include:
Smart Home / Home Automation
I love Philips Hue but it is so expensive I would never pay full price for it. There are some moderate discounts so far with:
Blink Indoor Home Security Camera System (1-Camera Kit): Just £79 – a saving of £50.99
Blink XT Home Security Camera System (1-Camera Kit): Just £89 – a saving of £60.99
Ring Spotlight Cam Battery – HD Security Camera: Just £139 – a saving of £60
Ring Spotlight Cam Wired – HD Security Camera: Just £139 – a saving of £60
Ring Video Doorbell 2: Just £124.99 – a saving of £54
Ring Video Doorbell Pro: Just £149 – a saving of £90
Not much to report in fitness yet, I am sure we will see some Fitbit and Garmin discounts though. Sadly probably not for the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus
PC & Console
Crucial MX500 500GB SSD was £106.79 now £87.97 – I use this personally and it is a great drive if you don't need the absolute best performance.
Acer Predator Helios 300 should be £799 down from £999 with Intel Core i5-7300HQ Processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD & 128GB SSD, NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti
TVs / Home Cinema / Audio
More details to come when the event starts but there will be up to 30% off TVs from LG, Sony, Toshiba and more
There will also be up to 30% off Sennheiser, Bose and Sony Headphones
Scrolling through all 86 pages of the lightning deals there were practically none worth mentioning, no big names the only 2 that caught my eye were:
Partaker Mini Pc Firewall Mikrotik Pfsense VPN Network Router which starts at 12:59 pm current price is £246.00 – this could make a worthy buy if you want to deploy your own PFSense router.
Not tech related but the Beer Hawk Sommelier's Craft Beer Experience, Case of 12 was the only other thing that caught my eye current price of £32.95 it will probably drop to £24, but hopefully, it will go to £18 at which point I may buy it!
