Amazon Prime Day 2017 is almost upon us: starting from 6pm on July 10 (Monday), and running until the end of July 11, you’ll be able to stock up on toilet rolls and other odd things that Amazon has failed to shift over the last year, plus a few nice products that you’ll actually be interested in. Prime Day 2017 is officially on July 11, but Amazon is adding six more hours of shopping this year, presumably to cash in on a second lucrative evening shopping spree.
The first teaser from the second season of The Grand Tour will also be unveiled on Prime Day. Amazon tells us that Jeremy, Richard, and James have visited Mozambique, Switzerland, and, er, the UK.
As before, there’ll be deals that last for the duration of Prime Day, and also some Lightning Deals that pop up throughout the 30-hour window. The better Amazon Prime Day deals tend to run out of stock very quickly, but this year Amazon is adding a couple of features that will help you stay on top of things: deals will be better organised into categories, and the Amazon mobile app will let you watch an item and send you a notification when a deal begins.
Amazon Prime Day is only available to Prime subscribers, which costs £80 per year in the UK/$99 in the US. Until July 3, though, you can sign up for just £60 for the first year. This deal only applies to new customers: existing, loyal, long-term Prime users can’t avail themselves of the £20 discount.
This story will be updated with the best Prime Day deals when they’re announced. There’s usually a handful of very good deals—cheap consoles, TVs, memory cards, Fire tablets, Kindles—but a lot of trash to wade through as well.
In the lead-up to Prime Day 2017, Amazon has a few smaller deals available: new users can sign up for Amazon Music Unlimited for 99p/99¢ for four months; if you stream Amazon Video between July 7 and 11 you’ll be entered into a £100,000 prize draw; and Prime users can save 40 percent on a Kindle Unlimited subscription.
