The best Amazon Prime Day deals 2019: big discounts are dropping already
Prime Day will start on Monday 15th July 2019 – but there are some great early Amazon Prime Day deals already
The best Amazon Prime Day deals are less than a month away. The date of Amazon Prime Day 2019 has been officially announced today as July 15. As we predicted, it’ll last 48 hours, ending July 16.
But we’re already seeing some fantastic early Amazon Prime Day deals – like this 4K Toshiba Fire TV (43LF421U19) for $179.99, reduced from $299.99. That’s a sweet 40 per cent discount.
The retail giant’s version of Black Friday – held every summer – sees the launch of thousands of amazing Amazon Prime Day deals on home, garden, sports and electronics equipment. It’s Amazon’s most important shopping event of the year, and to mark the run-up to July 16, the retailer has released a selection of early Amazon Prime Day deals already.
You'll need an Amazon Prime account to participate, but if you don't want to commit to full membership you can still get involved by signing up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. (You can cancel it with no strings attached before the end of the 30-day period.)
So what can we expect from Amazon’s biggest shopping event of the year? What are the best Amazon Prime Day deals that we’re likely to see? And why do we care, anyway?
Well, Amazon Prime Day 2018 was the biggest day of sales the online retailer has ever had. It's a fair assumption that Amazon Prime Day 2019 will be even bigger and better this time around – which means loads of great savings for deal-savvy shoppers. Here’s everything you need to know about Amazon’s sale bonanza this year, and how to bag the best Prime Day deals.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2019?
Amazon Prime Day 2019 will start at 00.01am PT on Monday, July 15 and run until 11:59pm on Tuesday, July 16. That’s 48 hours of deals – making this the longest Prime Day ever. Last year, Amazon Prime Day started at 3pm on Monday, July 16, and stretched into a then-unprecedented 36-hour event, lasting until midnight on Tuesday, July 17.
We’ll be working hard to bring you the very best Amazon Prime Day deals here on this page, so you can be sure you’re making the biggest savings possible on the products you want.

A good way of predicting what the best Amazon Prime Day deals in 2019 will be is to take a look back at what happened last year. In 2018, Amazon sold over 100 million products around the world on Prime Day. Amazon doesn’t disclose sales figures, but Internet Retailer estimates sales hit $4.19 billion globally in 2018, up nearly 74% from $2.41 billion during Prime Day 2017.
The best selling products last year, according to Amazon, were its Fire TV Stick and Echo Dot. But other popular Amazon Prime Day deals included six-quart Instant Pots, LifeStraw water filters, Bosch cordless power tools, PS4 Pros and Sandisk microSD cards.
If this year is anything like previous events, we can expect to see some of the best Amazon Prime Day deals on the company’s own smart devices again, particularly the Echo family of smart speakers, Amazon’s Fire and Kindle tablets, and its Fire TV streaming devices. In fact, Amazon has already confirmed that we’ll see the best Amazon Prime Day deals on Alexa-enabled devices. There are likely to be heavily discounted trials of Amazon services like Amazon Music Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited, and the Twitch Prime gaming service, too.
We also think Amazon will continue last year’s trend of offering more Prime Day deals on niche connected products: think smart home-security systems, smart door locks and doorbells, smart thermostats, smart lightbulbs and so on. After all, it makes sense - Amazon is looking to drive long-term loyalty, and these products and services are all either gateway devices into the Amazon ecosystem, or add-ons for those who have already committed.
Will we see big price drops on consumer electronics like TVs, laptops and cameras? Sure, we expect to see a few bargains. Last year we saw $200 cut from the price of the TCL 49-inch 4K Smart Roku TV, taking it down to just $399.99; and an Acer Chromebook 11 on sale for just $139.99 ($80 off). Amazon also slashed 34% off the Microsoft Surface Pro, and sold the original (albeit superseded) Sony A7 camera at the lowest price we’d ever seen for a full-frame camera. But make no mistake: the real focus of this event will be Amazon.

How to get the best Amazon Prime Day deals in 2019
The easiest way to get the best Amazon Prime Day deals this summer is to stick with us. We’ll bring you all the biggest savings and best-value deals right here, first, so bookmark this page and check back in regularly for the latest updates.
Bear in mind that you need to be a Prime member to take advantage of Amazon Prime Day deals, as the name suggests. If you’re not a Prime member already and don’t want to sign-up for a year’s subscription, it isn’t game over though: there are two ways you can participate.
Firstly, you can take advantage of Amazon’s free 30-day Prime trial. Just make sure you don’t sign up too early, and that you cancel before the month’s subscription period is up – as long as you don’t go over the 30 days there are no strings attached. Alternatively, you can pay $13 for a one-month Prime membership and benefit from all the advantages that come with Prime: free same-day and one-day delivery; unlimited streaming of movies and TV episodes on Prime Video; unlimited, ad-free access to Prime Music; Prime Reading; and loads more.
Aside from checking this page for the hottest offers, here are some more pro tips for making sure you really do bag a bargain during the event:
- Do your homework: know what you want to buy and create a shopping list before Prime Day to ensure you stay focused
- Use CamelCamelCamel.com to check the Amazon price history of a product and ascertain whether it really is a good deal
- Use Google Shopping to see what other retailers are selling it for and ensure the Amazon Prime Day price is, indeed, the lowest available
- Add Fakespot.com to your bookmarks - this service helps you determine whether the Amazon user reviews for a product are legit or fake
