Amazon Prime Day is still alive and kicking, but with just hours left until Prime Day ends.

The 48-hour sales extravaganza officially started at midnight PT (3am ET) Tuesday 13th and it finishes at the end of today (Wednesday 14th October) – during which all manner of tech discounts have been – and still are – available, from Echo speaker deals to TV deals.

It's not too late to take advantage; some of the very best Prime Day deals (below) are still live. Just remember you need to be an Amazon Prime member. (Don't have a Prime membership? Check out Amazon's 30-day Prime free trial for a sneaky way to bag some deals for free.)

The online retail giant has turned its annual Prime Day sale into a serious shopping event thanks to low, low prices and speedy delivery. From a single day of deals, Prime Day grew to two days (and more) of special offers in 2019, so Amazon will no doubt go even bigger for 2020 – and convince people why Prime is a better subscription service than new-kid-on-the-block Walmart+.

We are once again sorting the best US Prime Day deals from those worth avoiding, finding the best Prime Day deals on TVs, headphones, speakers, tablets and more. And there are already some great Amazon deals worth investigating...

When does Prime Day end?

The official Prime Day deals end on Wednesday 14th 11:59pm PST (2:59am EST) – but we wouldn't be surprised if some Prime Day discounts were carried into the next few days.

Amazon's little hockey puck-shaped smart speaker is its best selling Echo device – one listen and you'll see why.

Not the newest Ultimate Ears speaker, but we awarded it five stars when it came out in 2015 – and remember, that was at triple the price. Expect 20 hours of battery, a solid waterproof build, a punchy, exciting sound and this edgy, limited edition black/neon green colourway. Five stars.View Deal

Bose Home Speaker 500 with Alexa $399 $299 at Amazon
While its smaller brother, the 300, didn't wow us for sound, we've never actually been 12 rounds with this model. It boasts the same Bluetooth and wifi connectivity, AirPlay 2, app support and built-in voice assistants, but you'll also get a color LCD display screen. It's a lot of tech for this low price... View Deal

Prime Day tablet deals

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 $227 $208 at Amazon
The Tab E is a cheaper still but doesn't really cut it as a budget tablet. Instead, we'd suggest the 8in Tab A, which offers a sharp and colourful screen and is a serious budget alternative to the iPad mini. It's more versatile than the Amazon Fire HD, too.

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 kicks off at midnight PT (3am ET) on Tuesday 13th October and runs through to the end of 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 rumors of an August date, and then September, but at least Prime Day isn't too close to Thanksgiving and 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 Prime members-only affair, so you'll need to be a 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). 

'Amazon Live' will also spotlight deals curated from small businesses across Amazon, as well as give shoppers the opportunity to hear directly from business owners and learn more about their products.

Prime Day will take place in the US, UK, 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. 

Prime Day 2019 in numbers

  • 175 million items sold
  • $1 billion+ in savings worldwide
  • 18 countries participated
  • 2x as many Ring and Blink devices sold compared to last year
  • 2x as many Fire TV Edition Smart TVs compared to last year
  • 1 million headphones sold by Amazon US
  • 200,000 TVs sold by Amazon US
  • 100,000 lunchboxes sold by Amazon US

Prime Day 2019 best-selling items

Top-selling Prime Day deals included the iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum, MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener Chamberlain MYQ-G0301, and Amazon Smart Plug.

Prime Day was also the biggest event ever for Amazon devices, with the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote, and Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote topping the Amazon devices charts. The Fire 7, meanwhile, was the biggest-selling Amazon tablet. 

In the United States the best-selling items across the Prime Day sales were said to be the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, Instant Pot DUO60, and 23andMe Health and Ancestry kits
