Amazon August Bank Holiday Sale
The August Amazon Bank Holiday Sale is now upon us and there are already some fantastic discounts to kick things off. Expect more deals to appear each and every day during the Amazon Bank Holiday Sale period, which runs from 00:00 on August 22nd to 23:59 on August 29th. That’s a whopping eight days of discounts.
Amazon is taking its usual approach to its big discount days, with ‘Deals of the Day‘ offers available throughout, paired with its short-lived ‘Lightning Deals’. There will also be discounts on Amazon Warehouse and Launchpad.
Like with Black Friday, Amazon Prime members can bag themselves a 30-minute head start on Lightning Deals, giving them an edge on any stock-limited discounts. The good news is that you can still take out a 30-day free trial to take advantage. Jump to the bottom of the page to see what you get with an Amazon Prime membership, too.
We’ve rounded up all of the best Amazon Bank Holiday Sale discounts right here and will be adding more as they go live. We’re checking the historical prices of all of Amazon’s discounts so you can get an idea of whether or not it’s a good deal.
Be sure to bookmark this page and return throughout the day to find our hand-picked selections across a range of products as more discounts go live.

Best Amazon Deals UK – What do I get with Amazon Prime?
The number of benefits from Amazon Prime membership nowadays is almost dizzying. It all started off with expedited delivery but has now expanded to much, much more.
Quick delivery is still very welcome, mind you. You can get unlimited one-day delivery across millions of items, and in certain areas you can even get same day delivery and 1 or 2-hour delivery through Prime, for absolutely nothing.
If you order a lot and are in a hurry, this alone can make Prime membership worthwhile. We’ve lost count the number of times we’ve had to rely on speedy delivery to get us out of a bind.
Then there’s Prime Video, which features streaming movies, like Paddington 2, and TV shows including plenty of Amazon Originals exclusives like The Tick, The Man in the High Castle and of course The Grand Tour. There’s something for everyone.
If you’re more of a reader than a watcher, there’s Prime Reading that gives you access to a rotating catalogue of eBooks, comics and magazines as part of your membership. You also get advanced access to editors’ picks each month. These are free books available early.
For music fans, there’s Amazon Prime Music, which has a catalogue of 2 million songs ad-free. This isn’t to be confused with Amazon Prime Music Unlimited, however, as this is a separate subscription service with 40 million songs. There’s a 4 months for £0.99 promotion if you fancy trying that out.
Twitch Prime gets you in-game loot every month and ad-free Twitch streaming on the popular gaming service.
Prime Early Access
You also get early access to Lightning Deals as a Prime member, giving you an all-important head start against other bargain hunters. Amazon Family gets you 20% off grocery essentials like nappies and baby food, so great value if you’re a new parent.
Unlimited photo storage
You also get unlimited free photo storage as part of your membership. Fantastic news if you’re running out of storage space on your phone or computer, and a great way to back up those all-important memories.
Prime exclusive Audible trial
If you’re a Prime member, you can also take out a free 90-day Audible trial. Audible is all about audio books and as part of your membership you get credit for one free audiobook every month. You also have access to free audio shows and unlimited listening to original, short audio programmes.
You also get 60% off selected audiobooks. Every audiobook you buy is yours to keep even if you stop your membership. You’re able to listen on a range of devices including mobile and desktop apps, and through your Kindle Fire, Amazon Echo or Fire TV.
Membership costs £7.99 a month once the 90-day trial is over.
You can also share your Amazon Prime account with a second adult as part of an Amazon Household. We don’t mean just giving your other half your Amazon account password either. They can have their own Amazon account but you share the benefits of your Amazon Prime account, including digital content and expedited delivery.
If you want to set up an Amazon Household, have a read of our guide.
Premier League and other sports (in the future)
Amazon announced it has acquired the rights to broadcast certain Premier League football games in 2019 exclusively for Prime Members. Expect Amazon to bolster its offerings even more in the future to add even more reasons to sign up to Prime.
Amazon Prime Student
If you’re fortunate to still be living the student life, you also get a host of Amazon Prime benefits with Prime Student. Not only do you get 50% off the cost of a Prime membership, you get extra discounts like 10% off textbooks, fashion and other sections of Amazon. You can see all of the Amazon Prime Student benefits and take out a free 6-month trial here.
Best Amazon Deals – How to know if it’s a good deal
Use a Chrome extension like Keepa or, if you’re not a Chrome user, a site like CamelCamelCamel. Both of these are Amazon price trackers that let you see the Amazon price history on products. That’s great if you want to see if a price has genuinely dropped and if you’re getting a genuinely good deal.
Of the two, Keepa is our favourite as you don’t even have to navigate away from the Amazon Product page. It’s embedded right there for you as you browse around Amazon, instantly letting you see if you’re getting a product for a low price. As prices tend to fluctuate, you’ll have to make a judgement call if now is the right time to snap one up.
If it’s not the lowest price it’s ever been, but it’s not been discounted for a long time, it could still be a good time to jump in. You might also actually need a product right now, so that will also help with the decision. It can be easy to dilly-dally on a decision, but at the end of the day, it’s a personal decision when to dive in.
