4 Months of Amazon Music Unlimited for 99p (usually £31.96)
Four months of Amazon Music Unlimited for just 99p is a steal. Amazon Music Unlimited releases new music everyday from today’s most popular artists, and has over 40 million songs already in its arsenal. Naturally, Amazon Music Unlimited is compatible with Amazon’s smart speaker devices.
3 Months of Kindle Unlimited for FREE (usually £23.97)
If you own a Kindle, this is a perfect deal for someone who wants to get access to an enormous library of eBooks, comics, magazines and more. To be exact, over 1 million Kindle eBooks and over 20,000 digital comics are available, and it all can be accessed with a Kindle Unlimited membership. This deal is rare, and is usually only available during Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday.
New Amazon Echo for £59.99 (Originally £89.99) | New Amazon Echo Dot for £24.99 (Originally £49.99)
These deals just went live at 11AM (04/07/2019) and we can safely assume the prices for the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot will remain the same until Prime Day finishes.
Prime members, remember to STAY LOGGED IN to see all the below deals.
However, don’t be fooled and think the best deals of the year are limited to big deal events, because they aren’t. I’ve listed some outstanding deals already live on Amazon below:

What is Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day is Amazon’s way of rewarding Prime members by offering great discounts over a range of categories. The deal event has been held by Amazon every year since 2015 and is widely regarded as one of the best deals events of the year, which is why many people abstain from shopping outside of deal events such as Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday and instead bulk shop when they come around. According to Amazon, Black Friday is about buying gifts for others (as it’s just before Christmas), but Prime Day is all about treating yourself.
The Best Deals from Last Year’s Amazon Prime Day
Amazon devices are usually the best selling items on Amazon Prime Day. Last year, the Amazon Echo was reduced from £89.99 to £59.99 and the Amazon Echo Dot slashed from £49.99 to £29.99, and the Amazon Echo Show went down from £199.99 to £99.99. Amazon Fire tablets, Amazon Fire TV sticks and Amazon Kindle e-Readers were also heavily discounted.
A 12-month Audible membership was half price, with monthly payments of £3.99 rather than £7.99. Elsewhere, there was a 3-month free trial of premium Amazon Channels, and 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for 99p – a deal which is repeated this year and is currently live right now.
Gaming and TV deals were also great – a 12-month Xbox Game Pass was just £47.99, and highly-rated OLED TVs were reduced by almost £1,000. We’re expecting similar great deals to be running this year.
