AMAZON has announced its annual Prime Day is coming back once again this year – and you can now get a free voucher too.
The online giant, which slashes the prices of one million products listed for sale ahead of Christmas, has revealed this year’s event will take place from midnight on October 13 to 11.59pm on October 14.
Brands taking part in this year’s sale include Philips, Toshiba, Nescafé, Lego, Nintendo, Shark, Samsung, Under Armour, Sony and Le Creuset.
In a bid to support local businesses, Amazon is also launching a new drive.
From today until October 12, Amazon Prime users who buy something, worth £10, from an independent seller will be given £10 in credit to spend on Amazon Prime Day.
Some examples of local businesses shoppers can support include The Pyjama Factory, which sells pyjamas for kids from £4.59.
To find out which sellers are included, you can visit Amazon’s page here and start shopping.
As a way to kick off the event, Amazon Prime Members can get a few deals early, starting from today.
They include the following:
- A Ring Spotlight Cam, which was £199 and is now £139
- The Philips Series 5000 Trim-n-Flow PRO Technology Hair Clipper, which was £53.99 and is now £34.99
- The Toshiba 800 w 20 L Microwave Oven, which was £66.11 and is now £55.99
- The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio S Automatic Coffee Machine, which was £89.99 and is now £59.99
The day only applies however to Amazon Prime users and not normal shoppers for Amazon.
It means you have to sign up to the scheme, which costs £79 a year or £7.99 a month.
Doug Gurr, Amazon UK country manager, said: “After a tough six months for everyone, we’re committed to making this the most successful Prime Day ever for small businesses.
“We’re excited for members to discover the very best from artisans and entrepreneurs in the UK, while saving big on everything they need and love from the comfort of their homes.”
