Amazon Prime Day 2017 gets underway on Monday, July 10 at 6pm and will last for 30 hours.
Amazon Prime Day 2017 gets underway on Monday, July 10 at 6pm and will last for 30 hours.

Amazon Prime Day, Amazon's annual Black Friday-style sales bonanza, returns this evening from 6pm for a bumper 30-hour period.

It is the third year running that the retail giant will release thousands of items at a fraction of their usual price. 

Prime Day is exclusively for members of the £79-a-year Prime service, which offers subscribers quicker delivery times, as well as access to music, film and TV. 

The 30-hour spell is six hours longer than last year, giving shoppers extra time to access all the best deals. 

Here's everything we know about what will be on offer and how to find the best discounts.

Will there be any deals or offers released in advance?

Yes, in the run up to the day Amazon is also offering Prime members certain deals. The first is a trial of Amazon Music Unlimited, its music streaming service, which is £0.99 for four months.


There will also be the chance for members to save up to 40pc on a Kindle Unlimited membership, while between July 3 - August 6 members will be able to save up to 25pc with vouchers on everyday essentials from the Prime Pantry.

Do we know what deals will be released on the day?

Most deals will be announced from Monday, but some 'leaked' deals have already surfaced.

Two of Amazon's flagship products, the Fire tablet and the Amazon Echo, will be made available at heavily reduced prices. The Amazon Echo, which provides hands-free access to music, news, sports and other information and doubles up as a top speaker, can be accessed with a 47pc discount. The Fire 7, one of Amazon's bestselling tablets, will cost a mere £29.99 as opposed to the usual £49.99. 

Black+Decker's 18 V Lithium-Ion Flexi Vacuum will be reduced by 55pc, and coffee-lovers can look forward to 50pc off the De'Longhi Nespresso Lattissima coffee machine.

The Fire 7" Kids edition tablet will be reduced from £99.99 to £69.99, and the Fire 8" Kids edition will go from £129.99 to £89.99.

Pet owners should be prepared for some retail therapy come Monday. This PetSafe automatic ball launcher, which is certain to keep dogs entertained for hours, will be at least 30pc cheaper on Amazon Prime Day.

Parents seeking greater security for their children should look no further than the Motorola MBP36S Digital Video Monitor, set for a 20pc discount.

Anyone in need of a new vacuum cleaner should pay attention. The stylish and compact Hoover FD22G's price will be cut by a whopping 65pc.

Last year, there were two different types of deals: Lightning Deals, which run for a fixed period of time with a finite number available, and Deals of the Day, which ran for the entire 24 hours.

This year, Amazon says almost 40pc of Lightning Deals worldwide will come from small businesses and entrepreneurs. 

To avoid missing out on deals, you can add them to a watchlist ahead of time and activate notifications on the Amazon smartphone app when they go live.
