Last year’s best Amazon Prime Day deals
It was a bit of a mixed bag last year for any Amazon Prime Day gaming deals. There were very few console bundles on offer, the majority of which didn’t really see significant reductions. Instead, it was games, accessories and PC tech where the best savings were found.
As the event ran just a couple of months before PS5 and Xbox Series X/S launch there was some expectation that it could be used to sell last-gen console stock, but that didn’t exactly materialise. It seems Microsoft had already shifted the majority of its remaining Xbox One X consoles earlier on Amazon in a refurbished deal that dropped the price to £200. There was an Xbox One S bundle but that wasn’t very competitive when compared to the price of the Xbox One S. Meanwhile, PS4 bundles were completely absent outside of some lacklustre Dualshock 4 and PS Hits pairings.
Of course, the Nintendo Switch played its part in the sale and was another sought-after item over Prime Day. The highlight was a featured flash deal of a Nintendo Switch with Ring Fit Adventure for £314.99. After that sold out in two hours, you could also get a Switch with Animal Crossing New Horizons for £289.99 or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for £299.
In the US, things were a lot quieter, as it was mostly game deals that were available. The likes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Fire Emblems Three Houses dropped to $40.
Is there an Amazon Prime free trial?
Yes! If you haven’t been a member before then you can sign up for an Amazon Prime free trial. This will give you 30 days of access to all membership benefits, including free next-day delivery, video streaming through Amazon Prime Video, freebies through Prime Gaming and a host of other services. Of course, most important for us here is the ability to take advantage of all the Amazon Prime Day deals!
You can sign up right here at Amazon UK or Amazon US. Just remember to cancel it before the 30 days pass to avoid being charged for membership. Or, you can keep it rolling, perhaps at a reduced cost if Amazon decides to discount the price of a year-long membership for Prime Day – something it has done in the past.
