The very best Prime Day deals
Prime Day TV deals
Panasonic TX-43HX580B 43-inch 4K TV
£499 £339 at Amazon
It’s rare for a Panasonic TV to become available at a very low price, which is why this Amazon Prime Day discount is so noteworthy. This 43-inch 4K model supports HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision, and it has a bespoke operating system that features the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and all of the UK’s core catch-up apps. It looks very tempting at this price.View Deal

If you’re looking for a whole lot of TV for not a lot of money, this massive discount on the Hisense 65AE7000FTUK should be right up your street. This is a 4K HDR model with a full smart platform that includes big hitters such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and BBC iPlayer.View Deal
Panasonic TX-58HX800B 58-inch 4K TV
£999 £749 at Amazon
We gave the 58-inch HX800B a five-star rating when we reviewed it at its original price of £999, so its Amazon Prime Day price of £749 makes it an absolute belter. It’s an excellent picture and sound performer with a solid smart platform and support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10+. You can’t say fairer than that.View Deal
Prime Day headphones deals
Bose Soundsport Free
£180 £111 at Amazon
Essentially a true wireless version of Bose’s superlative SoundSport in-ears, these buds are sweat- and waterproof, and the sound is nothing short of marvellous for a pair of sports headphones at this price. A great deal. View Deal
AKG N60NC wireless headphones
£200 £105 at Amazon
2019 Award winners. “They are compact, convenient and affordable – in fact, they’re one of the best wireless headphones we’ve heard at the money”. That’s what we said of these great cans on review – and that was at the asking price of £200.View Deal
Cambridge Audio Melomania 1
£100 £89.95 at Amazon
Detailed and insightful sound, reliable Bluetooth, long battery life (nine hours from the buds plus four additional charges from the case, meaning a stonking 45 hours of continuous use) two What Hi-Fi? Awards and now, an extra £10 off. A top Prime Day bargain. View Deal
Prime Day speaker deals
JBL Go 2
£30 £20 (Blue) at Amazon
Speakers don’t come much more portable than this little number. It’s very affordable – especially now – sounds great, and comes in a range of bright, pearlescent colours. Small, bright and fun – it really is hip to be (almost) square.View Deal
Prime Day tablet deals
Prime Day hi-fi deals
Yamaha CRX-N470D system
£350 £219 at Amazon
This mini hi-fi system is a nice mix of traditional and newer methods of playback. You can play your CDs and tune the radio, and also stream over Bluetooth, AirPlay. With the right pair of stereo speakers, it’s a tidy little performer.View Deal
Prime Day home cinema deals
Nebula Capsule projector
£400 £240 at Amazon
When reviewed, we praised the Capsule’s “neat design, solid sound and access to streaming services”. Its resolution of 854 x 480 pixels is par for the course when it comes to miniature projectors. A brightness of 100 lumens means you’ll need a dimly-lit room. Not perfect but it’s the best mini around.View Deal
Yamaha RX-V585 AV receiver
£530 £319 at Amazon
This 7.2ch receiver is packed with features for this low, low, price. It supports 3D audio codecs such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X and there are plenty of music streaming options including multi-room too. There aren’t many AVRs cheaper than this.View Deal

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?
Prime Day 2019 was a two-day sale of pretty much non-stop deals that started on 15th July, 2019. Back in 2018, it was a 36-hour event that happened on 16th July.
Prime Day 2020 kicks off on 00.01am on Tuesday 13th October and ends on 23.59pm on Wednesday 14th October.
Previously, we had thought that Amazon might decide to go earlier than usual with Prime Day 2020 to get ahead of the competition, who might be readying rival deals for non-Prime members. There were rumours of an August date, and then September, but at least it is happening in good time before Black Friday.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day is Amazon’s take on Black Friday. While every online retailer gets involved in the now annual Black Friday bargain bun fight, Prime Day is all about Amazon.
The special day of deals is a members-only affair, so you’ll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of the offers. Thanks to Amazon’s 30-day Prime free trial, there is always the option to sign up, bag a few bargains, and then cancel your membership. Up until 12th October, new Prime members can also get £5 credit added to their account when they sign up for Prime via Alexa on their Echo device by saying, “Alexa, sign me up for Prime.”
Prime members are then able to take advantage of limited time only ‘Lightning deals’ as well as broader Prime Day deals across the site.
Amazon promises new deals every few minutes, with the deals dropping on the website and on the Amazon app (which gave members an early heads-up on the deals).
Prime Day will take place in the UK, US, United Arab Emirates, Spain, Singapore, the Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Australia and, for the first time, Turkey and Brazil.
Prime Day 2019: what happened
So what did we learn from Prime Day last year? Well, there were A LOT of deals. And Amazon sold an almost unfathomably high number of products, which must mean there are lots of happy bargain-hunters enjoying their shiny new toys right now.
In total, Amazon sold 175 million items, making it the biggest ever shopping event for the online retail behemoth, bigger even than Black Friday. Amazon Prime members across 18 countries were involved, double the number since the first Prime Day five years ago.
And with more Prime members than ever signing up over the two days of Prime Day, it looks like Amazon Prime Day 2020 will only be bigger.
