It has now been confirmed that the 2024 Amazon Prime Day sale will take place some time in July. And while that may seem a while away, it will come around in no time.

The huge Amazon sale is one of the biggest events in the retail giant's calendar, second only to Amazon Black Friday, and is one of the best times to grab the best swimwear on Amazon, Lululemon alternatives and yoga mats on Amazon, amongst other things.

But what many might not know is Amazon runs discounts on a variety of products year-round. While the official Prime Day sale is a couple of months away, there are still plenty of brilliant discounts to be had - including garden furniture, coffee machines, and this COLOR WOW Dream Coat Supernatural Spray, which is one of our beauty editors' favourite products.

One of the best products for humidity, this advanced frizz-easing spray uses humidity-blocking technology to prevent moisture in the air from puffing up your hair. It works to leave locks smooth, shiny and glossy and lasts through three to four washes, saving you time and money.

Our beauty editor Aleesha Badkar says: "I've been fortunate enough to try many a hair treatment through my role as a beauty editor, but the only reliable solutions I’ve come across have been semi-permanent keratin treatments that have to be done in a salon and are often not the cheapest. But when I got my hands on the Color Wow anti-frizz spray, everything changed...

"Not only does the treatment protect from humidity, it also leaves hair smooth and glossy for up to four washes. And while the results already make this a very worthwhile investment, the treatment is currently 15% off, making it the perfect time to top up on this magical little spray."

Hair products aren't the only thing on offer in the Amazon sale today. The retail giant has impressive discounts across a range of departments, the highlights of which we have listed below. You'll also find great savings across Amazon book deals, jeans on Amazon and Amazon shapewear.

When is the Amazon Spring Sale, and how long does it last?

The Amazon Spring Deal Days 2024 have now finished. However, this year's sales give us an indication of what to expect next year. A six-day event, products across a huge variety of categories were reduced from both Amazon and third-party retailers.

The Amazon Spring sale is very similar to the retail giant's Prime Day event in July, however for this one you do not need to have an Amazon Prime membership in order to get the discounted prices.

What are the biggest sale days on Amazon?

Amazon has brilliant sales throughout the year, but the biggest sale days have to be the Amazon Prime Day sale and the Black Friday sales, which usually take place at the end of the year.

The Amazon Spring Sale kicked off on 20th March 2024 and lasted for six days, with over 50% off some of the most popular items on the website. Amazon's next big sale is likely to be Amazon Prime Day, but the retail giant usually has another sale in the autumn before the huge pre-festive-season discount event in late November, Black Friday.

How do you know if the Amazon sale offers good deals? 

It can be hard to know which deals are the best ones, considering that prices fluctuate throughout the year, so a sizeable percentage discount might not be as exciting as you initially thought. However, there is help out there when it comes to deciphering what makes a good deal on Amazon, with price tracker websites like camelcamelcamel keeping customers up to date with the most up-to-date prices and best deals.

Founded by tech entrepreneur Daniel Green in 2008 it was voted the most popular price-tracking tool among Lifehacker in 2015. camelcamelcamel monitors millions of Amazon products and sends out alerts when prices drop so you know the best time to buy.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024, when is Amazon Black Friday 2024

It has been confirmed that Amazon Prime Day 2024 will take place in July, however the exact dates are yet to be announced. Black Friday in 2024 falls on 29th November this year, but the deals usually start dropping in the week before that.

Keep an eye out on the woman&home website, as we'll be keeping you up to date with all the latest Black Friday and Amazon Prime Day news and deals.

What days are the prices lowest in the Amazon sale? 

Prices on Amazon tend to fluctuate a lot, so it can be hard to predict when things will be the best value. Price tracker websites like camelcamelcamel help you start up to date with what's on sale and how low prices are going, so you can jump on a great deal if it arises.

During big sales events like Black Friday, the lowest prices typically come in at the end of the sale, with Cyber Monday (the sales event on the Monday following Black Friday) seeing some of the biggest discounts in 2024. It's worth noting, however, that the most popular products do sell out quickly, so if you want to bag a particular item it could be risky to wait until the end of the event.
