Roll up, roll up, it's the best electric shaver deals of Amazon Prime Day! Every time there's a big sale on, I roll out this list, with carefully updated pricing, and every time, it's always pretty much the same as at the last sale. In fact, if you come back and click on all the links here on any given day of the year, you may well find that prices are much the same. But even so, there are some good deals to be had here, for those who wish to be less hirsute.
Among the best Prime Day deals every year are deals on some of the best electric shavers for men – pretty much all of them, in fact. This time around, as always, Amazon has deals on Braun electric shavers and Philips rotary electric razors and OneBlade trimmers. The prices are not necessarily any better on Amazon Prime Day than on any other day, but they are worth a look if you are considering buying one for yourself or as an extremely lazy Christmas gift for a man you know.

Braun Series 9 9390cc £175 | Was £500 | Save £325 at Amazon
The current state of the art in Braun shavers, this version of the Series 9 comes with a charging station that deep cleans the blades with alcohol. The 5 synchronized shaving elements of the Series 9 mean you get smoother with fewer strokes. This is not the lowest ever price but come on… £325 off.View Deal
Philips Series 9000 Prestige £349 | Was £349 | Save £0 at Amazon
What's this? No money off at all? Philips sees the Prestige as a genuinely premium product and that's why deals on it are rarer than a fully beardless man in Shoreditch. With a Qi chargiong pad and even better shaving than the Braun Series 9, I have no arguments with that, but I'm not paying 350 quid for one. View Deal
Philips Series 9000 S9211/12 £150 | Was £350 | Save £200 at Amazon
If you are after a rotary shaver deal instead of a foil shaver deal, look no further. Philips' electric shaver removes stubble in a remarkably gentle way. The bundle includes a carry case and beard trimmer/edger attachment, plus a cleaning station – it's among the lower prices this shaver has been at. View Deal
Philips OneBlade £30 | Was £60 | Save £30 at Amazon
This 'Hybrid Body and Face Stubble Trimmer' is excellent. It uses a vibrating head that slightly resembles an old-school razor blade, but is far safer. In fact we'd say it's almost impossible to cut yourself with a OneBlade – it's practically impossible to suffer skin irritation from it too, in our experience. Almost best price ever! Half price!View Deal
Braun Series 9 9340s £229 | Was £450 | Save £221 at Amazon
The Series 9 is Braun's longstanding, top-of-the-range, top-of-the-morning shaver for men. This version doesn't come with a cleaning station but costs more than the one that does. Figure that one out. Not a great deal by any means. View Deal
Braun Series 8 8390cc £150 | Was £420 | Save £270 at Amazon
Also packing a charging/cleaning dock, this model has four shaving elements to the Series 9's five. So as good as this is, I'd pay the extra £££ and go for the 9390cc above, personally. The last time I checked this deal, it was £275 off, but at the time, Amazon was pretending it normally sold it for £440, so technically this is a better saving. View Deal
Braun Series 7 7842s £122 | Was £129 | Save £7 at Amazon
There's no cleaning station… but would you actually use that anyway? Ours always just sit forlornly in the bathroom cupboard, forever and ever. However, given that today you can get one with a station for the same amount, it is a bit of a dilemma…View Deal
Braun Series 7 7865cc £149 | Was £149 | Save £0 at Amazon
Another step along the affordability road to cheapness, the Series 7 is still perfectly suitable for most men's needs especially if you shave every day. The more expensive models are advisable if you are a twice-a-week guy, however. This comes with a charger and cleaner. I also give this deal bonus points for Amazon not blatantly fibbing about what its normal price is.View Deal
Braun Series 5 5197cc £104 | Was £250 | Save £146 at Amazon
The more affordable Series 5 is particularly aimed at those with sensitive skin, and boasts an 'auto-sensing motor for efficient shaving in every stroke, even with dense beards.' This model comes with a cleaning station. It has been cheaper than this a few times at Amazon before but it's still an okay deal. View Deal
Braun Series 5 5140s £105 | Was £105 | Save £0 at Amazon
Particularly aimed at those with sensitive skin, this boasts an 'auto-sensing motor for efficient shaving in every stroke, even with dense beards.' Basically, it's the same as the one above but doesn't come with a cleaning station, and is £1 more expensive. It's always a cheap shaver, and today… it still is a cheap shaver.View Deal

Why you should ignore all the others and buy a Braun Series 9
The Braun Series 9 is one of the best shavers you can get, especially if you prefer foil shavers to Philips-style rotary numbers. The docking station is not essential, but if you like your razor to be in a state of perfect, almost hospital-grade cleanliness at all times, you need it. You could also take the view that at this price, you might as well get the model with the charging station, because it's about the same price as the one without a charging station – an especially handy consideration if you're buying as a gift.
The Braun Series 9 has titanium tipped blades – that's what gives that golden appearance; it's not gold paint intended to make it seem more blingy. The culmination of all the experience Braun has garnered from its many, many years of razor making, the Series 9 actually adapts to the shape of your face and the density of your follicles, giving a more efficient, less irritating shave that's 'personal to you'.
As ever on electric shavers there's a 'slide-out precision trimmer' for taming sideburns and doing the tricky bit under your nose, so it doesn't look like you're growing a Hitler 'tache.
The Series 9 is 100% waterproof, and can be used dry or in the shower, or with shaving foam or gel. It's also easy to rinse clean.
Built in Germany, Braun says it's 'designed to last for up to seven years', although the shaver head needs to be replaced every 18 months. This may vary depending on how often you shave, of course. Unlike lesser electric razors, this Braun is pretty good at dealing with 2-3 days of stubble growth.
The charging and cleaning station blasts the head with an alcohol-based cleaning solution. You'll need to replace the fluid capsule every month or so. These days you can get 'lemon fresh' ones, so the shaver doesn't just come out smelling like an operating theatre, or like it's been drinking all afternoon.
