Everything you need to know about Amazon Prime Day

Amazon promise more deals than Black Friday on July 15th 2015

We all know that Black Friday is the ultimate in discount shopping days, causing mass hysteria among shoppers desperate for a bargain, but now Amazon are promising an event to dwarf the day and they're calling it Amazon Prime Day.

Amazon Prime Day will be on Wednesday 15th July 2015 and will be available exclusively to Amazon Prime members. Fret not should you be one of the unlucky ones without a membership however as Amazon have announced that the deals will be available to those taking part in a free trial, essentially meaning everyone can take part.

But what are the deals? Well, it would be impossible to write them all down here as they promise more deals than Black Friday and are only to be announced on the day.

There will be six main deals on the day, all available for twenty four hours, there will also be thousands of Lightning Deals being released every ten minutes throughout the day. For those unaware of Amazon's Lightning Deals these are special one off deals only available for a limited time, get in quick if you like the look of it but beware not to rush into it too quickly, we've all suffered from buyers remorse at the hands of a lightning deal.

Whilst Amazon aren't releasing specific deals until the day but many are predicting some big reductions on consoles, TVs, Cameras and other tech items. Expect some big reductions on games, Blu-Rays, DVDs, CDs and Vinyl too.

Our advice to you would be to set yourself a budget and stick to it as this could be a huge money burner and it will no doubt be easy to bankrupt yourself before you've even realised it.

Amazon Prime is currently £79 ($99) a year for which you get access to Amazon Instant Video, unlimited photo storage, free delivery on specific items (delivery within one hour if you're in London) and free E-book borrowing. You also get access to Amazon Prime Day Plus although details on that are even more hush hush than the rest of the offers. 

You can of course sign up for a free one month trial but if you aren't planning on sticking around make sure you cancel in time as you are charged the full £79 up front on the day the free trial ends.

We are on the edge of our seats to see what they have planned and no doubt they will get a lot of new users from this event.

Amazon Prime Day is available in the UK, USA, Spain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, Canada and Austria and starts Midnight Wednesday 15th July 2015 for twenty four hours.
