The retailer has slapped discounts on lots of home and electronics products - including best-selling Echo and Fire devices
May is always that time of year when it feels like we’re wandering from one long weekend to the next. Not that we’re complaining, obviously – especially when there’s a sale or two on, like the one currently being hosted by Amazon.
The retailer’s Bank Holiday bonanza isn’t quite the medley of slashed prices that we’ve seen in previous sales – if we could take a guess, the online retail giant is keeping its powder relatively dry for Prime Day in July. But there are still some pretty stupendous discounts, the best of which we’ve listed below.
There are lots of other great deals launching over the weekend, and we’ll be updating this page as soon as they go live – so stay tuned.
