Tips for finding great Amazon deals

We like to think we’ve done most of the hard work for you, but if you haven’t seen a deal that takes your fancy, then Amazon has a couple of tricks up its sleeve.

Looking to get ahead of the pack and help you better part with your hard-earned cash, Amazon launched a dedicated #NowItsSummer store.

It’s more interesting than it sounds, because #NowItsSummer is designed to react to the UK weather and showcase deals most appropriate to the current conditions.

That means you’re likely to see bargains on beach towels and BBQs when it’s nice and sunny, whilst wellies and waterproof cameras will be discounted if things are looking a bit more standardly British outside.

Check out Amazon’s #NowItsSummer store here.

More recently still, Amazon revealed its Shop the Future store, which is dedicated to the latest and greatest geeky gadgets – from fitness trackers and smart home devices to 3D printers, headphones and…vegan cookbooks.

You can find all things #ShopTheFuture here.
