We’ve barely recovered from last time but Amazon Prime Day 2019 is here. Time to settle in for another 48-hours of crazy offers and Amazon Prime Day gaming deals to get us all warmed up for Black Friday later in the year.
For a few years now it’s been a great opportunity to pick up some summer savings, so get yourself prepared with everything you need to know about Prime Day 2019.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2019?
Prime Day 2019 begins on Monday 15th July at 00.01am and will run for 48-hours until Tuesday 16th July at 11:59pm.
However, Amazon has kicked things off a bit early in the US – even if they are a bit light on gaming deals. Right now, an Amazon Fire TV Recast is up for grabs for just $129.99. Elsewhere, you can get a Fire TV Stick with 2 months HBO for only $39.99. A 4 Months Amazon Music Unlimited subscription is also just a measly $0.99!
It’s also exceptionally quiet in the UK if you’re after Amazon Prime Day gaming deals. A few early launch offers are live, though. So, you can swing on over to pre-order the Spider-Man Far From Home & Spider-Man Homecoming 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Boxset for £39.99. Aside from that, one of the better bargains is an Echo Plus (1st Gen) for only £69.99.
You can see all the deals currently available or about to go live on the Amazon Prime Day hub.
What is Prime Day 2019?
Although it originally ran for a single 24-hour period, Amazon Prime Day has now grown into a multi-day affair as the collective desire for deals grows ever stronger. Across this year’s 48-hour sale extravaganza, many products from across the entire Amazon catalogue will see significant discounts, including lots of top gaming goods and tech. We’ll be updating this page with all the best Amazon Prime Day gaming deals, so do check back regularly!
Most of these items will be on sale for both days and you’ll be able to buy them at any point during Prime Day. However, Amazon also runs a selection of Lightning Deals throughout the event. These are limited time offers with even more limited stock, so you’ll want to be ready to grab these as they go live. We’ll be sure to give you as much of a heads up as we can about these once we know what’s on offer!
What if I’m not an Amazon Prime member?
Never fear, if you’re not yet an Amazon Prime member you can get yourself all registered ahead of time to access all the best Amazon Prime Day gaming deals.
One thing you should definitely do (if you haven’t done so in the past) is sign up for a one-month Amazon Prime free trial. That’ll allow you to take advantage of the deals while they’re live without having to pay the subscription price. You can do that here at Amazon US or Amazon UK.
For everyone else, an Amazon Prime membership costs £79/$99 for a year or £7.99/$10.99 a month. Benefits include free one-day shipping, as well as access to Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading and Twitch Prime. The latter is a nice bonus as you’ll be able to snag a few free PC games each month! Don’t forget, it’s easy to set up an Amazon Household you can share some of these benefits with anyone who lives with you.
Students, meanwhile, can sign up for a six-month free trial of Amazon Prime and get a 50% discount on membership when the trial expires.
Amazon Prime Day gaming deals 2019
You can expect all sorts to find their way on sale during Prime Day 2019. And even though we’re a good few weeks away, a number of early Amazon Prime Day deals have already been listed in advance.
Back in 2018, some of the best Amazon Prime gaming deals included huge savings on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch console bundles. We would be comfortable guessing that many of these will come back for 2019, albeit in a slightly different form. However they return, it’s a wonderful opportunity to find yourself a serious deal on a new console if you’ve been holding off pulling the trigger.
Of course, there were savings to be found on games and software, too. Some of the top titles on sale back in 2018 included Far Cry 5 and Assassin’s Creed Origins at the cheapest prices we’d seen them. Expect other big games to see their first major price drops.
You might also want to look at renewing your subscription services at this time, too. Both PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold saw a temporary cut in their cost, so if your sub time is about to expire then keep an eye out for a sale there!
We also don’t want to neglect all the other tech that will be on sale during Amazon Prime Day 2019 too. We expect to see a good offer or two on 4K TVs, laptops, computer components and a whole load more. Amazon Devices is another big area that should see massive reductions, with the retailer already promising that these will be the biggest Prime Day deals ever on Alexa-enabled devices. Anything relevant will be added right here!
That should cover it all for now. We’ll be updating this page across the 15th and 16th with all the best Amazon Prime Day 2019 deals as they go live, so be sure to bookmark us and check in regularly!
