Amazon Prime Day 2024 is now officially over and hundreds of thousands of deals have been put to bed, but don't worry  — we reckon it'll be back in October.

The retailer's big annual sale brings exclusive deals with up to 60 per cent off for Prime members over a 24-48 period, and usually, there is one in July (which finished on July 17 this year). If you've missed it, fret not, as it'll likely be back in October. We've seen this every year since 2022.

During the fall Amazon Prime Day event, you can save big thanks to huge discounts across a wide selection of home deals on furniture, homeware, kitchen appliances, and on leading brands such as Shark, Ninja, and Nespresso.

Amazon Prime Day is the retailer's largest sale of the year and began as a celebration of Prime customers in 2015. It's been going strong ever since. There are thousands of products on sale and special promotions available globally shopping event. It started as a 24-hour bonanza, and in recent years, expanded into 48 hours due to its popularity.

Last year marked the biggest Prime Day in history, with over $2.5 billion worth of deals snagged by savvy shoppers.

During this retail event, Amazon offers plenty of discounted buys, and we've seen deals up to 80% off, including homeware, appliances, and outdoor items including big brands such as Keurig, Shark, Alexa, Echo, and Ring as well as savings on small businesses selling items such as cleaning supplies, home fragrances, and decor. 

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024?

Amazon Prime Day 2024 finished on July 17. We anticipate a second Prime Day, dubbed Prime Big Deal Days to come along in October as this is what has happened over the last few years.

In 2023, the fall event ran on October 11-12 but from our experience, the following year's event might be a few days either side. Bookmark this page for further news as we will update it as soon as we know.

You can expect it to last at least 24 hours, though as it has been so popularity, the last few have been 48-hours long.

Is Amazon Prime Day only for Prime Members?

Prime deals and discounts are only available to Prime members. Currently, there are around 200 million members. 

In the US, you can subscribe to be an Amazon Prime member monthly for $14.99, or $139.99 (a saving of around $70).

If you're not a Prime member already, there’s a free 30-day membership trial available now so, you can give it a go before committing, though you can cancel with ease if it's not for you.

Since being an Amazon Prime member comes with free and fast Prime delivery, Prime Video, Amazon Music, Prime Gaming and much more, we won’t blame you if you choose to extend your membership past its first month.

I've been a Prime member since its inception (I joined as a college student, which now costs $7.49 a month, and carried on each year, using my membership daily, but mostly for fast shipping, and to watch movies and series). 

I use this membership the most out of any of the items I pay for monthly or annually, including home, pet and beauty items I have on subscription, but I also buy furniture, cleaning and storage items with confidence. Whether it's via the app or on the phone, the customer service team has always proven to be super helpful.

Can you get Amazon Prime for free?

You can have a free trial, but after 30 days, you'll need to pay. 

If you are in receipt of Government assistance, you can get Prime Access at a discount of $6.99 a month, though you'll need to upload proof of your benefit(s). 

If you're a student, you can enjoy an extended six-month student Prime trial before continuing with a $7.49 monthly charge.

With a full Prime membership, another adult in your household can enjoy the benefits, but this does not extend to students.
