The best Amazon UK May Bank Holiday deals

Amazon is one of the most popular places to shop in the UK - not surprising considering its expansive catalogue and vast delivery options. While the online retail Goliath sells everything from dog biscuits to garden tools, it is also well stocked with plenty of tech, from Bluetooth headphones and wireless speakers to soundbars, streamers and tablets.

Of course, Amazon also has its own artillery of devices, with the ever-expanding range of Echo multi-room smart speakers, plus Fire TV streamers and Fire tablets. Where there are big catalogues, there are often big savings to be had, and you don't need to wait for Amazon Prime Day to get involved...

Our editors search through thousands of deals to unearth the best prices from the most trustworthy retailers. You can support us by clicking these independently selected links, as we may earn a commission on any purchase you make - but at no extra cost to you.
