Amazon Prime Day - Oral B Genius 9000

Amazon Prime Day cordless vacuum cleaner deals

Shark WV200UK – was £129.99, now £89.99 (31% off)

  • Lowest-ever price on Amazon? No (was £80.75 in December 2018)
Amazon Prime Day - Shark WV200UK

A tidy £40 saving on this Shark handheld vacuum cleaner makes it a more appealing option for buyers on a budget. It’s a slim, cordless vacuum cleaner that weighs in at just under 1kg. The Shark WV200UK only has a 0.1-litre capacity (so you’ll need to empty it regularly), but cleaning power is solid on laminate floors when you’re dealing with stubborn spills and debris.

We liked Cleans well on hard floors, good at retaining allergens

We didn’t like Short battery life

The Gtech AirRam MK2 doesn’t feature a detachable handheld cleaner, instead making use of suction and dust-collection mechanisms that live inside the floor head. It’s rather hefty at 3.6kg and has a 0.5-litre dust capacity, which is pretty standard. If you plug in the detachable charger, you can fully charge the battery in just over four hours.

We liked Quick to charge, long running time, great on hard floors

We didn’t like Poor at removing pet hair

  • Lowest-ever price on Amazon? No (was £79.99 in December 2019)
Amazon Prime Day - Tefal Express Compact SV7111

This iron has a 1.7-litre water tank and features a soleplate designed to glide effortlessly over all types of fabrics. Handy features include an anti-scale button and an auto shut-off feature that offers some peace of mind if you have children.

Amazon Prime Day deals on garden products

Bosch EasyHedgeCut 18-45 – was £119.99, now £75.99 (37% off)

  • Lowest-ever price on Amazon? Yes

An affordable cordless hedge trimmer with a 45cm-long bar. The Bosch EasyHedgeCut 18-45 is particularly lightweight, weighing in at just under 2kg – great if you’re shopping for a machine that’s easy to manoeuvre. The battery and charger are compatible with all the tools in the Bosch Home and Garden tools system.

We liked Lightweight, easy to handle, quiet

We didn’t like Slightly slow, poor finish to the cut

Weber Pulse 1000 – was £599, now £275.99 (54% off)

  • Lowest-ever price on Amazon? Yes

This electric barbecue doesn’t rely on gas or charcoal, instead using porcelain-enamel cooking grates and a handy grease-management system. It measures just 61 x 66cm, so it’ll fit in spaces where a conventional barbecue wouldn’t. There’s an LED screen on the front that lets you keep an eye on cooking time and the current temperature.

We liked Great cooking ability, portable, easy to use

We didn’t like Can only cook a small amount of food at one time

Amazon Prime Day deals on Amazon devices

Eero Mesh WiFi System 3-pack – was £249,  now £149.40 (40% off)

We didn’t like Variable sound quality, small screen may be too fiddly for some

Amazon Prime Day 2020 deals to avoid

The dangerous Don’t Buy: Graco Junior Maxi – was £34.99, now £24.99 (29% off)

  • Lowest-ever price on Amazon? Yes, jointly (was the same price in September 2020)
Amazon Prime Day - Graco Junior Maxi

This child car seat may be temptingly cheap, but we simply can’t recommend you buy it. It’s a flawed Which? Don’t Buy child car seat, let down by poor side protection. And if you remove the high back to turn it into a backless booster seat, it offers virtually no side-impact protection at all. Avoid it and opt for a Best Buy child car seat instead.

Not the best for the price: AKG Y500 headphones – was £129.99, now £89 (31% off)

  • Lowest-ever price on Amazon? Yes
Amazon Prime Day - AKG Y500 headphones

If you’re shopping for headphones on Amazon Prime Day, these AKG headphones will be jumping off the page now that they’ve dropped below £100. But based on the results of our expert audio tests at the Which? lab, there are better alternatives at a similar or cheaper price.

Take a look at our review of the JBL T450BTs – they’re £40 on Amazon.

We liked Physical controls let you go hands-free

We didn’t like Poor sound, lots of sound leakage, plasticky build

You could get a better model for less: Sony SRS-XB12 speaker – was £60, now £29.99 (50% off)

  • Lowest-ever price on Amazon? Yes
Amazon Prime Day - Sony SRS-XB12 speaker

A 50% discount on this mini speaker isn’t terrible, but if you’re after a portable Bluetooth speaker from Sony, the Sony SRS-XB01 is even cheaper at £18 and performed better in our rigorous sound tests.

Read our full Sony SRS-XB01 review, or buy it now on Amazon.

We liked Easy to use, ultra-small size

We didn’t like Sound quality could be better

Amazon Prime Day 2020: how does it work?

Amazon Prime Day is an annual event where Amazon Prime members get exclusive access to discounts across the website. You’ll see thousands of deals, covering both Amazon’s own-branded products and items from other sellers.

Previously, Prime Day has been a July tradition, but this year’s sale was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, Prime Day will run just weeks before Black Friday.

Once you’re logged in to an Amazon account that has an active Amazon Prime subscription, you’ll see Prime Day deals marked with a blue badge.

If you want to take full advantage of the sales but aren’t a Prime member, you could consider signing up for a 30-day free Amazon Prime trial. That way, you can browse the latest offers and then cancel your trial if nothing takes your fancy.

If this is your plan, set a reminder so you don’t accidentally end up paying for Prime membership, which costs £7.99 per month or £79 per year.

How to shop on Amazon Prime Day

Preparation can be the key to bagging a bargain on Amazon Prime Day. Take some time before to set yourself a budget and create a shortlist of products that you want to keep an eye on.

But a word of warning: don’t assume you’re getting a sweet deal just because you see the blue Amazon Prime badge on a product page. When you see a deal you like the look of, run a quick web search to see if the product is available elsewhere for less.

Currys PC World, for example, is running its own rival sales event across the Prime Day period.

Use the Amazon mobile app

Amazon’s smartphone app is free to download and worth a look if you plan on shopping the Prime Day sale while you’re on the move.

If you update your notification settings, you’ll get a nudge when certain deals go live, which can be handy, as popular products may sell out quickly. To set it up:

  1. Open the Amazon app
  2. Head to SettingsNotifications
  3. Scroll down to Your watched & waitlisted deals, then turn it on

Now, when Amazon’s ‘upcoming deals’ start appearing in-app, you can select Watch this deal to know when it goes live.

Use the Which? Reviews app

Which? members have full access to the Which? Reviews app, which puts all of our expert reviews in the palm of your hand. If you spot a tempting Prime Day deal, open up the app to make sure you’re bagging a Best Buy.

From within the Which? Reviews app, you can create a shortlist of products that you’ll be tracking for Amazon Prime Day. Our ‘Compare’ tool will also let you see test results side-by-side.

Returning Prime Day purchases to Amazon

If you buy a new product on Amazon Prime Day and it arrives on your doorstep damaged, the retailer is fully responsible.

Under the Consumer Rights Acts, the product needs to be of satisfactory quality (not faulty or damaged), fit for purpose and as described. If the product doesn’t meet one of these requirements, the retailer (not the manufacturer) is in breach of the Consumer Rights Act.

Assuming you need to pay to send back a defective or damaged product, Amazon will pay that fee.

A message on Amazon’s website adds: ‘You can return most products from the Amazon sites to Amazon within 30 days of receipt of the products if the products are in an unused and undamaged condition. To return an item please visit our Returns Support Centre.’

For expert Which? advice on returning goods you’ve bought online, consult our in-depth guide to returns and refunds.
