What are people shopping for on Amazon at the moment?
In the run up to Christmas, beauty advent calendars are a huge draw at the moment - we particularly love the White Company offering this year.
Some of the most popular Prime Day purchases that everyone is shopping right now are the Kindle devices, including the Echo Show, Echo Dot, Fire Tablet and Echo buds - you can shop all of them here while they are still on offer!
Away from Prime Day, With the imminent release of the new PS5, people are currently shopping for Playstation Store gift cards - a present likely to be much-appreciated by any grandsons, nephews or younger children you might have! And, following the the success of her Mrs Hinch Instagram account, Sophie Hinchcliffe has unveiled her very first memoir - you can buy it on pre-order here. It's already become a No.1 bestseller!
What type of deals are there on Prime Day?
This year there are a few different types of deals on offer, depending on what kind of products you're after and how keen you are to purchase. They include:
- Spotlight deals- these are offers that last for just 24 or 48 hours, and are usually from well-known brands. These are the sort of deals to take advantage of as soon as you see them, as they're from brands you love, but might not see discounts from during other times of the year.
- Featured flash deals -these are products that are very rarely on sale, so they offer some of the best discounts and savings in the whole Prime Day sale. There will be a limited number of these products available, so if you spot them, we'd advised snapping it up ASAP!
- Lightening deals - these are on sale for a very short time (normally 12 hours). As with the flash deals, these will be deals that will expire after about a day, so you'll need to get them as soon as you see them to avoid missing out.
- Coupon and voucher deals - this is a new format for Amazon Prime Day 2020. You will be given a voucher code, or a coupon, which you redeem at the till for money off.
In terms of which are the best deals, generally, the featured flash deals are where you'll find the most brilliant savings. However, each of these types of deals will offer you great bargains.

Should I shop on Amazon Prime Day - or wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Two of the biggest shopping events of the year are coming up - so which should you shop, Amazon Prime Day, or Black Friday?
There is no right or wrong answer, but it's worth noting that this year Prime Day is a month earlier than Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so if you want to make sure that you get the discounts you want, it might be worth getting in there on Amazon Prime Day, to be sure. Plus, you'll have a whole extra month to enjoy your new purchases if you shop on Prime Day.
However, Prime Day is exclusively on Amazon, and your favourite brand/product might not necessarily be on Amazon - whereas they are very likely to run a Black Friday discount. In this case, Black Friday may be more helpful.
We reckon it's worth keeping an eye on Prime Day to see if you can snap up whatever products you want/need before it's too late, and a whole month earlier than Black Friday.
