Anyone can get a jump-start on their festive shopping and savings this Prime Day by joining Prime or starting a free 30-day trial at amazon.co.uk/primeday.

Support Small Businesses

Prime members can support small businesses this Prime Day by shopping deals featured in the Support Small Storefront, on Amazon Handmade and Amazon Launchpad. More than half of the items sold on Amazon worldwide are from third-party sellers – mostly small and medium-sized businesses. This year, Prime members around the globe can shop hundreds of thousands of Prime Day deals from these entrepreneurs.

Laura Smith, Founder of HexNex Jewellery, Winchester, UK: "Giving customers a great reason to shop with small brands like ours with the incentive of the £10 promotion has been a big sales driver for us in the build up to Prime Day 2020. Having our handmade products sit right alongside the big name brands elevates us to new heights, and means that so many more people can discover our small business and what we have to offer.”

Prime Day Deals Preview

When it comes to incredible deals on amazing products, Prime Day 2020 delivers in a big way with more deals globally than any Prime Day event before. Additionally, members can shop featured lightning deals, which offer jaw-dropping prices on top-tier brands and products. These offers could sell out quickly so be sure to come back throughout the 48 hours of Prime Day to make the most of the biggest savings.
