Amazon Prime Day 2020

Amazon Prime Day 2020 – Dates And £10 Free

Amazon Prime Day 2020 is always a good place to look for deals. So when is it, and what’s coming? Here’s what we know so far…

Whether you’re an Amazon fan or not, there’s no denying that there are good deals to be had.

Not all of them are good deals of course, but if there’s something you need, this might be a good time to buy.

Prime Day this year has been majorly pushed back due to the goings on – but the date has been revealed, and there’s also a bonus offer for Prime members in the run up.

Here’s everything you need to know:

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day started in 2015, so it’s a fairly recent phenomenon, but yet it’s a day that money savers wait for every year.

It’s said that over 175 million items were sold last year over the Prime Day period, which is no small number.

Amazon Prime Day 2020 will be a 48 hour event, which will consist of deals on all of the usual Amazon products (including the Echo, Kindle, Fire TV Stick and more).

Alongside this, you’ll also find ‘lightning deals’ happening every 15 minutes. This usually consists of random products at a discounted price – but only for a short time.

Usually the lightning deals are nothing to shout about, but the Amazon branded products are usually the cheapest they’ve been all year on Amazon Prime Day.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

The 48 hours of Amazon Prime Day has been held on a Monday/Tuesday for the past few years, but in 2020, they’re switching things up

Amazon Prime Day 2020 will be held on Tuesday 13th October and Wednesday 14th October.

There will be plenty of promotion in the lead up to the big day, so if you forget this date now, you’ll see the advertisements and banners everywhere to remind you.

What deals can we expect in 2020?

There’s already a deal on now. Get 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for 99p – which is a a great deal if you like music streaming.

In terms of products, last year did not disappoint. I saw an Amazon Echo Dot for just £22 (the cheapest we’d seen up until that point). Also the Echo Show 5, which was recently released, also saw a price drop of £20.

In terms of 2020, all of the usual suspects will see a discount, including the new generation Echo Dot, Echo Show, Echo Spot, Kindle and Fire tablets.

There are also new items such as the Echo Show 8 and the All New Fire TV Cube, which have not seen any massive price drops in price since release. 

It’s likely that Amazon Prime Day will be one of the first chances to get a good deal on them.

How to get the Prime Day deals

As per the name, you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to get the deals. Don’t worry if you aren’t subscribed, because you can sign up the day before or day of the event and still get the deals.

Never signed up before? You can sign up for a free trial (and sometimes you can get free trials if you have signed up too).

If you can’t get a free trial, then it might be worth waiting until the day to see how much the items are reduced by.

If there was a specific Amazon product that you were looking to get during the Amazon Prime Day event, you can wait to see what the price is, and if the discount is more than £7.99 (the cost of 1 month Prime membership), then it’s worth getting. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

Spend £10, Get £10 Free

To kick Prime Day off, Amazon has launched an offer which gets you £10 free to spend on Prime Day if you spend £10 or more in the next two week run up.

This is only available for Prime members that spend £10 or more with ‘small businesses’ which includes 10,000s of products.

This includes a number of categories including homekitchenbeautytoys and games and more.

From the looks of it, this applies when you’re buying something that is fulfilled by Amazon from a small business seller.

You will know if it is an eligible product as you’ll see the promotional banner when you’re on the product page.

If you spend £10 or more, then on the 13th and 14th of October, you’ll get £10 taken off of a purchase when checking out. It doesn’t look like there’s a minimum spend either! So you’re basically getting something worth £10 for free.

See the full T&Cs here

 

So that’s the lowdown of Amazon Prime Day 2020. I’m excited to see what happens, and what products will be reduced too. There are tons of free trials to claim on Amazon too, so have a look to see if you’ve claimed them all.

Are you looking forward to Prime Day? I’d love to know in the comments, on Twitter @Jordon_Cox or on Facebook.

Airtime Rewards app

Airtime Rewards – Earn passive cashback via app (plus promo code)

Fancy earning cashback with no effort needed? I’ve earned £50 just from having Airtime Rewards installed on my phone. Here’s how it works:

Link your cards to this one app, and every time you spend money in one of its retailers – you get cashback. Doesn’t matter how much you spend, and you don’t need to click any buttons before you buy.

That means you’ll get between 1-10% back every time you spend at Boots, Waitrose, Primark, Debenhams, Pizza Express, Papa John’s, Wilko and many more.

The cashback you earn can’t be withdrawn as cash, but instead it’s linked to your phone contract/pay as you go sim. 

Once you’ve banked enough cash to withdraw (usually £5 or £10), you can redeem it, and it’ll come off your bill for the month, or be added to your credit.

The app is called Airtime Rewards, and it’s one of my favourites. Here’s an overview of to get started on it:

Download Airtime Rewards and register

Airtime Rewards is available on iOS and Andriod. Once downloaded, fill out a few details to create your account. If you wanted a bonus, you can get 50p for free for using my promo code TEMMNEV4 (and you’ll also get a £1 bonus if you spend in the first 7 days).

Link your cards & start shopping

Any cards that you would shop with, make sure to add to your account. Airtime Rewards can be linked to Visa and Mastercards (but not AMEX), and you can add as many cards as you like.

Once they are linked, it will track all of your spending on those cards, and if you shop at a retailer on Airtime Rewards, you will get cashback. The rate of cashback varies per retailer, but the average is around 4-5%.

There is no maximum amount of cashback you can earn on an order too, so spending £500 at Argos for example will net you £25 cashback (as you get 5% back).

There is usually around 35 days from the time you shop until the time the cashback is payable, so it’s not going to be a quick way to make some money – but it should passively work when you’re not even thinking about it.

Once you have hit the minimum threshold (which varies by network provider), you can redeem your money under the ‘rewards’ tab in the app.

How to get £1.50 free with an Airtime Rewards promo code

For signing up and entering an Airtime Rewards promo code, you get 50p for free, and then an extra £1 bonus if you spend within the first 7 days of having the app.

You can enter my Airtime Rewards referral code which is TEMMNEV4 to get £1.50 free if you don’t have one.

As said above, you need to spend from one of its retailers in the first 7 days to get the extra £1 bonus… but there is no minimum spend on this to unlock it.

This means, to unlock the extra £1 (even if you weren’t going to spend), you can pop into Boots and get a chocolate bar for 50p… and you’ll still get the bonus issued to you. A great way to earn a little extra cash!

It’s important to note that you can share your referral code with as many friends as you want to get the app and start saving. With each one that you get to sign up, you earn 50p, and so do they.

If you use a promo or referral code to sign up (TEMMNEV4) , and manage to find 9 friends, you’ve made your first £5!

You can earn a lot of extra cash from referring your friends. See my refer a friend blog for how to make £100s.

Stack cashback

The thing that I love about this app, is that you can stack it with other cashback. If you’re signed up to either TopCashback or Quidco, and a retailer is on Airtime Rewards as well, you use both.

(If you want to know more about TopCashback – see my TopCashback Guide).

To stack the cashback – click through the cashback website online and pay on one of your linked cards. This will mean you can get double the cashback from 2 different places. 

Here is some of the stacking you can do right now:

  • Topman – up to 11.6% cashback (6.6% on TopCashback, 5% on Airtime Rewards)
  • Debenhams – 9% cashback (5% on TopCashback, 4% on Airtime Rewards)
  • Boots – 8.3% cashback (3.3% on TopCashback, 5% on Airtime Rewards)
  • Halfords – 10.4% cashback (5.4% on TopCashback, 5% on Airtime Rewards)

That’s a lowdown for you on how Airtime Rewards works (and how to use it to your advantage). I hope you end up saving some money with it. 

Since signing up my mother and my partner, we have accumulated £40 between us all in a short time – which we wouldn’t have got otherwise.

If you want some more ways to make some extra cash, you can earn passive vouchers with Gener8 Ads.
