How to make the most of Amazon Prime Day even if you are not a member
FINALLY, Amazon Prime Day is here. The annual discount event runs today AND tomorrow, with some huge savings to be had.
It is not the only way to get a great bargain online, though.
Just follow my guide . . .
You have to be an Amazon Prime member to get the Prime Day deals. This costs £7.99 a month or £79 for a year and perks include same-day delivery, more than 800,000 free e-books and access to Prime Video and Amazon Music.
But if not already signed up, you can do the free 30-day trial membership and cash in on Prime Day. Just make a note in your diary so you know when to cancel it.
Also, Prime members who shopped at a smaller retailer on Amazon between September 28 and October 12 can claim £10 credit to spend in the sale.
And that is not all — at the moment, Prime members can get a £5 discount when spending £25 on Amazon apps and £5 back in Kindle credit when spending £15 on Kindle books.
Many shoppers are unaware you can claim cashback even in sales.
Topcashback.co.uk is currently offering an extra 2.5 per cent on many of the Kindle and Echo devices.
Other websites also have huge cashback incentives. If your internet could be faster, the current Sky TV & Broadband Superfast+ Boost deal includes cashback up to £150, and online retailer Very.co.uk is offering up to 12 per cent back when you shop.
KNOW ITS HISTORY
Check how much an item has changed in price in the past month. It can help you decide if you are actually getting a genuine good deal.
Camelcamelcamel.co.uk is the site which tracks prices on Amazon, Pricespy.co.uk does the same for the Argos website.
Other online sites will compete for your custom over the next few days.
EBay currently has a 70 per cent-off outlet, with big discounts on the likes of Superdry and Dorothy Perkins.
Asos has up to 70 per cent off and Debenhams £20 off when you spend £75 on adult clothing.
Deal of day
PICK up two thin and crispy pizzas and a four-pack of San Miguel beer or four bottles of Coca-Cola for a fiver at the Co-op. That’ll go down nicely for game night.
THE Great British Pubs website is giving away a drink a week this month. Sign up at great-british-pubs.co.uk/free-drink-app, choose your pub and use the voucher.
Don’t miss this…
AMAZON Prime Day is here!
You can get some amazing deals over the next two days. Brands include Philips, Lego, Toshiba, Samsung, Under Armour and plenty more.
If you don’t have Prime already, you can still sign up today to take advantage of the sale.
INSTEAD of forking out £25 to keep your water chilled in this tropical elephant Chilly’s bottle, get the similar tropical-print bottle from Wilko for £5. It keeps my drinks nice and cool.
Giselle’s little helper
NANDO’S is surprising thousands of people across the UK this month by picking up part of the bill at selected tables in restaurants every Wednesday.
Each restaurant will select a table at random and give it a discount code, ranging from £10 to £20 each day, which will automatically be applied to the order.
Shop & save
