7. Are prime Day deals better than Black Friday?

I personally haven’t tracked both in a given year. I may do this year on bestselling products from their bestselling categories (Alexa, Kindle, gift cards etc.) but according to US magazine Fortune.com

“Black Friday might still be considered the king of deal days by many, but when you look at the numbers, PrimeDay might be the best time to buy.”


They run a four years comparison to establish which event Prime Day or Black Friday saves us more money when shopping on Amazon.

  • In 2019 – 70% items were better priced than during BlackFriday 2019.
  • In 2018, another 67% of the items tied their Black Friday pricing.
  • In 201- 76% of the deals on Prime Day were better than Black Friday.
  • In 2016 – 77% of the deals on Prime Day were better than Black Friday.
  • In 2015 – 64% of the items were better priced than during BlackFriday.

Fortune states that the best deals on Prime Day historically have happened during daylight hours. Some of the best deals showed up in the final hours

Final piece of advice : if you like some product(s) place it in your basket ASAP. That should hold its price- if not you can discard that in case its not such a bargain.

Ah and finally do not forget to collect a cashback on some specific Amazon products.

I must say the beginning of this year was much more positive than the. 4 if I buy 1kg coffee at once :-) Bank switching perks Last November I moved from M&S to NatWest and followed their requirements to get £125 for that switch: NatWest switch perk I have 7 accounts and usually keep the ones that don't earn me any benefits a long time after the switch so that I can use them to switch whenever a new switch deal pops up - although admittedly there is fewer and fewer of them as COVID doesn't encourage anyone to splash cash. .
