Amazon Prime Day 2018: The best deals for tech and gaming

Sarah Young

Amazon Prime Day is back for a third year and this time round the online retailer has declared that over one million offers will be announced.

The shopping event begins on 16 July and will run for 36 hours, with discounts on both the company’s own offerings and other items sold on its marketplace.

But, that’s not all. Amazon has also announced a range of offers that are available in the days leading up to Prime Day, with significant savings on its own services for members.

You can sign up to Amazon Prime here, or if you haven’t signed up before there is the option of a free 30-day trial.

If a new TV, Prime Video, laptop or gaming console is on your wishlist, now could be a good time to invest.

We’re reporting all the latest tech deals as they appear below:
