Amazon's annual 48-hour deal extravaganza (otherwise known as the Amazon Prime Day sale) has arrived in style, with impressive discounts on headphones, TVs, soundbars, Bluetooth speakers and plenty more of our favourite tech products.

But even though we are seeing % signs everywhere, many discounted products can still empty wallets. If you're feeling thrifty and fancy stocking up on some tech essentials for cheap while you can, we're here to point you in the right direction.

Every one of these deals below comes in at under £50. No, you're not going to find your next TV or 5.1 speaker package on this page (that'd be the day, eh!), but those after Bluetooth speakers, headphones, streaming sticks, Alexa devices and even a cheap soundbar will find joy here – not least as many of them are five-star products, tried, tested and rubber-stamped by yours truly.

So by all means, have at these cheap Prime Day deals under £50. Something on this roundup might just be a perfect gift solution or a mini treat for you...

Sony SRS-XB12 portable BT speaker £55 £38 (save £17) (opens in new tab)

The latest Echo Dot swaps the puck design of its predecessors for an orb-like shape that sounds significantly better. As the smallest speaker in the Echo range, it's ideal for adding Alexa to every room of the house. This 60% saving beats last year's Prime Day deal price too. Five stars
