Amazon Prime annual membership now just £59 ahead of Prime Day

If you spend at least $10 at the store, you'll get a free $10 credit to use on Amazon Prime Day.

Amazon has reduced the price of a year's Prime membership to just £59 in preparation for Prime Day 2019 next week.

Amazon Fresh is a grocery delivery and pickup service available for Prime members in select cities only. The two-day global shopping event promises exciting deals and offers on hundreds of products, new product launches, and more.

The volume of deals may be overwhelming, so experts advise consumers to not act on impulse and wait for that good deal to make sure you're saving the money you want. Now's as good a time as ever, since you can get an Echo for $49.99, saving yourself $50.

Best Buy is planning to again run its "Big Deal Days" to coincide with Prime Day, although details have yet to be announced.

Apart from smartphones, Amazon will also introduce exclusive new products in collaboration with companies such as OnePlus, Samsung, Nestle, and others. Altogether, you'll pay just $169. This massive sale on July 15 and 16 offers deals on everything from household appliances to electronics to clothing and more - but this day of savings applies only to Amazon Prime members.

However, despite the cute video, sellers still have a problem with eBay's approach to Prime Day: eBay is sending "Crash Day" shoppers to its Deals site, not to regular marketplace listings.

In addition, you must be a current Prime member to take advantage of these cash back deals. Prime Day drives strong Prime subscriber penetration, engagement across Amazon's ecosystem and reinforcement of Prime's value proposition and brand. Amazon represented a whopping 49.1% of US retail sales in 2018, per eMarketer.
