How to get the best Prime Day 5-star product deals 2023

The annual Prime Day sales are both exciting and intimidating and, if last year is any indication, we could get a Prime Day 2 later this year.

It'll likely repeat this summer's Prime Day so, considering that 1000s of products are available with major discounts, how do you find the best deals?

Thankfully, that's where we come in and, as with the July Prime Day, we'll bring you all manner of our favourite bargains across the multiple categories, including best Prime Day 2 TV deals, best Prime Day 2 smart home deals, best Prime Day 2 laptop deals, and even best Prime Day 2 vacuum cleaner deals.

In terms of the top-rated products, Amazon's own devices will undoubtedly be super cheap again. That includes the likes of the Echo Show, Kindle, and Fire TV sticks, but also smart security devices, such as the Ring Video Doorbell and cameras by Blink.

There will be plenty of four-star products too - which are still excellent in their own rights. That includes the Amazon Fire TV 4-Series, which was hugely knocked down in price for Prime Day, even though it was only launched recently.

There's one thing to remember though, the Prime Day sales are exclusive to Amazon Prime members and a potential Prime Day 2 will be the same. You need to subscribe if you want access to the best prices.

That doesn't mean you have to shell out full whack though, as new members get a month's trial period for free. So, if you sign up shortly beforehand you can take full advantage of the sales and, should you not wish to continue receiving the wealth of other benefits, you can always cancel before the first payment is due.
