As we reported last week Amazon Prime Day has now been confirmed for the middle of next month and will again run over a 48-hour period rather than the more traditional “day”.

October 13th and 14th are the confirmed dates to pop in your calendar as it will be a great time for Prime Members to pick up gifts they need for the months ahead.

Having said that Amazon is already promoting a page of Prime Day early deals so it looks like there is going to be no let-up from the marketing machine until, well, the end of the year really.

With online shopping set for a potential record, and indeed ground-breaking season due to the restrictions in place because of the pandemic, Amazon has spent the last few months getting its logistical house in order to be ready to cope with what’s about to happen.

Having Prime Day just a month before Black Friday could even be seen as a test run before the fun and games really start at the end of November.

Unlike Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day deals are only available to Prime members, so you’ll need to grab a membership if you want to save money. But, not to worry – you may be able to get this membership for free.

Anyone who hasn’t signed up for an Amazon Prime account before can nab a 30-day free trial of the service, including access to these Prime Day deals. This means you get to save money on some great laptops, without spending a dime. Check out the links below to sign up for your trial today:

If you’ve already been a member in the past, you may not be able to sign up for the free trial, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Signing up for one month will not break the bank and may end up saving you a lot of money. If you’re after grabbing some high-ticket items (like a new laptop, for instance) then the savings you’re likely to encounter will be way more than the fee you had to pay.
