What is Amazon Prime Day: Get an Amazon Prime discount ahead of huge Amazon Prime deals day on 15 July

Ashleigh Allsopp | July 8, 2015
Amazon has announced Amazon Prime Day for members. Here's what you need to know, including how to get access to Amazon Prime Day for free, and how to get Amazon Prime for just £59 for a year.

Amazon has just announced that it will be hosting a massive deals day on 15 July to celebrate its 20th birthday. Amazon Prime day is for Prime members only, but you can get Prime for £59 instead of £79 right now. Here's how.

Amazon is offering Amazon Prime for £59 until 23:59 on 8 July, and you can take advantage of that offer by clicking here.

What is Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime is Amazon's paid-for service that offers a number of benefits. For £59 (or £79 if you join after 8 July), you'll get a year's worth of unlimited One-Day Delivery, access to Amazon Prime Instant Video's TV shows and movies, and unlimited photo storage.

£59 is a great deal - if you sign up for Prime Instant Video (formerly LoveFilm) alone it'll cost you £71.88 per year, so this way you're getting the video streaming service plus the delivery and photo perks for more than £10 less than the Prime Instant Video subscription.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day will take place on 15 July, which is Amazon's 20th birthday. Amazon has said that it'll offer "More deals than Black Friday," but it is exclusively for Prime members.

Deals will be available across electronics, toys, films and more, and they'll arrive in the form of Lightning Deals so you'll need to keep an eye on the site all day and place your order quickly if you don't want to miss out.

Amazon Prime Day is set to take place around the world, including UK, US, Spain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, Canada and Austria.

Get access to Amazon Prime Day for free

If you don't want to spend the £59 on Amazon Prime but still want to take advantage of the deals, you can sign up the free 30-day Amazon Prime trial, and you'll get access to the Prime Day deals. You can sign up for the 30-day trial here. Don't forget to cancel Amazon Prime before the free trial runs out.
