Amazon Prime Day is expected to return for its fifth year this summer, bringing deals as big as Black Friday’s on Apple products and accessories. Here, we share everything you need to know about Amazon Prime Day 2019, including how to get the best deals.
Prime Day, which was actually a day and a half in 2018, is a huge sales event with discounts across millions of products across the globe on Amazon.
However, if you’re not sure you want to commit just yet but would like to make the most of the Prime Day deals, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial here within 30 days of the event.
Amazon Prime is a service that began life as a way to get unlimited next day delivery, but has since become much more. Subscribers get access to Amazon’s Netflix rival Prime Video, plus plenty of other benefits. Find out more here.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2019?
Amazon hasn’t confirmed that Amazon Prime Day 2019 is happening at all yet, but with the deals event growing in popularity and success every year, we think it’s very likely it’ll return.
Since the first of its kind in 2015, Prime Day has taken place in July. It’s usually on the second Tuesday in July, but in 2018 it was later than usual to avoid clashing with the World Cup.
The most likely date for Amazon Prime Day 2019 is therefore Tuesday 9 July, but it’s also possible that it’ll take place on 16 July.
Best Amazon Prime Day Apple deals
On Amazon Prime Day, you’ll find plenty of deals on Apple products and accessories. Plus, as the event has grown in popularity, other retailers have begun hosting deals events at the same time, so you can find excellent prices on Apple products across the web too.
We bring you all of the best Apple deals on Amazon Prime Day from Amazon and beyond here on the day itself, but even now there are some great deals to be had.
Our team of experts is scouring the web all year round to find you the best Apple deals. Our current top ten is shown below.
While Apple itself doesn’t join in on Amazon Prime Day, there are plenty of retailers that recognise that it’s worth joining in the fun so expect to see deals events from some of your favourites including:
As mentioned, you’ll need to sign up to Amazon Prime (or the free trial) to get access to the deals. You should also make sure your payment and shipping information is up to date to make sure you can purchase products before they sell out.
If you come across a deal that has sold out, you can usually join the waitlist to be alerted to any stock that becomes available, usually because someone has decided they don’t want to purchase it after all and removes it from their basket.
You can also use the Watch this Deal button on upcoming deals to be alerted when they become available.

This will be the fifth Amazon Prime Day to take place, and the longest yet. 2017’s Prime Day was 30 hours, but Amazon added an extra six to that for a whole 36 hours of frantic deal hunting time in 2018.
