Welcome to Amazon Prime Day. It‘s the second and final day of what Amazon are calling the Prime Early Access Sale – snappy title, huh? Think of it as the start of the Black Friday deals and sales season, and your first chance to snap up some pre-Christmas savings. As usual, there’s offers on coffee machines, air fryers, SSDs, laptops, some rare console deals and everything else you could conceivably want. Oh, and Amazon devices of course. If you’re after an Echo speaker or Fire TV streamer or Ring security system, today is a good day to get stuck in.
The Prime Day Early Access Sale runs until 11.59pm on Wednesday 12th October. Only Amazon Prime members can take advantage of these deals, but don’t worry; it’s not an exclusive club. If you're not already a member, you can always sign up to a 30-day free trial (opens in new tab).

That's a 27% saving on the list price and not far off the price of many top 4K models. The 55-inch model is the smallest of the range but there's also savings on the larger models too, such as 32% off the 75-inch model, taking that down to £3,399.
Ok, now let's surface some great TV deals on offer right now in the Prime Early Access sale. T3's TV expert, Mat Gallagher, has hand picked some of the best TV offers available (opens in new tab), with models from LG, Samsung, Panasonic and JVC on offer.
Prices start at just £145, and there are also discounts on the very well rated LG C1.
Prime Early Access has great deals across every product area you can imagine, and our fitness expert, Matt Kollat, has dug out the best Prime Early Access deals on Fitbit fitness trackers (opens in new tab).
There's four price cuts of note, including cost carves on the Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Versa 2, Fitbit Versa 3 and Fitbit Charge 5. The biggest price cut is on the Fitbit Versa 2, which sees a whopping £43.99 sliced off its cost.
Many of these Fitbits feature in T3's best Fitbit buying guide, so you're buying quality.
In the market for cheap video games and accessories? Then Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale is definitely worth checking out, as it is stuffed with great gaming discounts (opens in new tab).
There's cost carves on gaming headsets, gaming controllers, steering wheel and peddle combos, games for every major platform including PS5 and Xbox Series X, and even console offers.
For example, the Xbox Series S is now 13 per cent off! (opens in new tab) Be quick to avoid disappointment.
We love smart home products here at T3 and, when it comes to smart home lighting, Philips Hue is the market leader.
So it's great news that the Prime Early Access Sale is stuffed full of Philips Hue discounts (opens in new tab), with a wide variety of products reduced in price.
From light strips to wake-up lights, standard bulbs and onto up-lighters and starter kits, Amazon is a great place to shop Philips Hue right now.
Philips Hue has won T3's Best Smart Lighting Award countless times over the past 5 years at the T3 Awards, so its quality is beyond doubt. Well worth checking out if you want to bring some smart, colour-changing light to your home.
Garmin smartwatches are among the best in the business, and the Prime Day Early Access Sale has plenty of great Garmin products discounted (opens in new tab), as surfaced by T3's fitness watch expert Matt Kollat.
For example, the Garmin Instinct Solar is cut from £319.99 to £144.99, while the Garmin Edge 130 Plus is down to £109.99 from £169.99.
For even more great Garmin products, be sure to check out T3's best Garmin watch buying guide.

These products include Sony's superb WH-1000XM4 wireless noise-canceling headphones, the OnePlus Nord 2 Android smartphone, the Amazon Echo Show 10 smart home hub, and the Razer Hunstman V2 gaming keyboard.
There's loads more, too, and each one has been awarded our maximum 5-star score on test, so you know you're buying quality.
Roomba robovac with 35% off
If you'd rather leave the whole vacuuming process to robots, there are some big discounts in the robovac department too. The iRobot Roomba S9+ (opens in new tab) is a top-of-the-range model that features an automatic emptying dock and a squarer front design with corner brush to get right into those hard-to-reach edges. While the list price is a whopping £1499.99, right now it's down to £969, which is a £530.99 discount.

Board games for less
Taking time away from the live blog, Dep Ed Rob Jones has put together this great list of cheap board games (opens in new tab) in the Amazon Prime Sale. As the nights are drawing in, it's the perfect time to break out a board game and you'll find a range here for both kids and adults.
I'm a big Trivial Pursuit fan myself, and I've just spotted this Friends Trivial Pursuit Quiz Game with 60% off (opens in new tab). This is a bite-sized version of the full game and features 600 questions on everyone's favourite 90s coffee bar-based TV show.

Waterpik Water Flosser 39% off
I've recommended this product before and I'll do so again as it's not only a great product but it also has a decent discount. The Waterpik Ultra Professional Water Flosser is now £54.99 (opens in new tab), which is a 39% discount on the regular price. You can get either the white or black version for this price (the blue and grey models are still full RRP). I find it much better than the handheld versions.
Sony 5-star headphones 21% off
The Sony WH-1000XM5 are T3's best wireless headphones and right now you can pick them up for £80 less. That's the WH-1000XM5 for £299 (opens in new tab) in either white or black. A very good-looking, and great sounding pair of headphones, now for less.

Air fryers, anyone?
Mic check, one TWO. I'm Duncan Bell and I will be your deals spirit guide for a while now, until I get bored and hand it back to Mat G, in the place to be.
Now, whether you have a swanky kitchen, like this guy, or a crap kitchen, unlike this guy, an air fryer is this year's hottest culinary upgrade. Of that there is no doubt. The best of the bunch in the Amazon Prime Day sale is the Tefal Actifry Genius XL 2in1 – as the name suggests, it's large, it has two cooking zones, and it's genius. It's also nearly half price, but probably not for long!

There are also deals on air fryers from popular budget brands Tower and Cosori and also Scandinavian brand Princess, Tristar and Bear. Furthermore, there's money off Instant Pots, including their Pro Crisp which is both an Instant Pot and an air fryer!
Come to my pad
Some products are born great. Other achieve greatness by getting a bloody great price drop. No offence to Belkin, but its BoostCharge Wireless Charging Pad definitely fits that category. One of these things for 45 quid in a cost of living crisis? Thank you but I rather think not. For £10, however? Now you're talking my language baby – and I like it.
The Belkin BoostCharge Wireless Charging Pad 7.5W Special Edition, Wireless portable charger with AC adapter included, Qi-Certified Wireless Charger for iPhone,... to give it its full name is available for next-day delivery and is 78% off its usual price. The 10w model is down to £15 (from £20), while the 15w one remains obstinately at £30.

- Jabra Elite 85t True Wireless Earbuds:

Nintendo Switch OLED mega deal!
Looking to buy a Nintendo Switch OLED? Also love Lego Harry Potter? You're in luck! Amazon has bundled the Switch OLED with the Lego Harry Potter Collection (opens in new tab) of games for £291.95. That's a 15% saving on the RRP of the two items, or £53 off.
There are lots of options here actually. You can choose between the Neon Red/Blue and white editions of the Switch OLED and a choice of other games, including Splatoon 3, Lego Star Wars and Bayonetta 3. There's also a bundle which includes a Turtle Beach Recon headset, but all cost a little more than the Harry Potter one.
Of course, if you just want the console, you can buy the Switch OLED (opens in new tab) model on its own for £292.99 – but seeing that's more expensive than with the Lego Harry Potter game collection, you might as well buy that one.
If you love Lego and Harry Potter you might also want to check out our round-up of Harry Potter Lego set deals (opens in new tab).
Cheap booze and sex
Two of the first things most people think of when a sale is on are cheap booze and cheap sex toys. Or is that just me? Anyway, you can tuck into both right now, courtesy of Mat Gallagher's guide to the best cheap spirits of Prime Day. There's also our run-down of the best adult pleasure implement deals, courtesy of Emily Cox.
Buying up a load of cheap but high quality spirits now will save you plenty when Christmas parties start, while stocking up on cut-price sex toys now will be very useful for those other parties. You know what I'm talking about.
The best Nintendo Switch game deal of the day
Matt Forde has a great Switch OLED deal for you. For a trifling £299, you can pick up the console and Pokémon Legends: Arceus. That is no mean feat, since the console on its own usually costs £310. It's highly unlikely we'll see a better deal than this before Black Friday or indeed, before Christmas. This isn't the only Nintendo Switch deal out there right now though. Check this out.
Good news! You can get two Nintendo games for just £20!
Not quite so good news! The games in question are Rayman Legends and Immortals: Fenyx Rising! Cheap deal, though.
Smyths Toys has a similar offering. The choice of games is larger, meaning you can pick from Rayman Legends, Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Risk: Global Domination, Trivial Pursuit and Wheel of Fortune. Come on, it's only 20 quid, don't look at me like that.

I'll get my coat
Bit murky out, innit? Luckily, Pat Kinsella has assembled a guide to the best waterproof jacket and coat deals of this rainy and cold Prime Day. From North Face to Jack Wolfskin, there's an anorak to suit every occasion, a cagoule for every cause and a Souwester to wear everywhere.
In a spin
Welcome to day two of the Amazon Sale – sorry, Prime Early Access Sale. Remember deals will only last until midnight, so if you have items sat in your basket, make sure you checkout before then.
Did you know Amazon sell washing machines? Well, they do and there's discounts to be had on them as well. This Hisense 8KG front-loading washing machine is 27% off (opens in new tab), now £313.65 down from £429.99.
This will make you smile
One of the downsides of an electric toothbrush is that the replacement brush heads can be pretty pricey, so any chance to buy them at a discount is good news. Right now you can bulk buy 10 Oral B brush heads for £21.99 (opens in new tab) – that's a 49% saving on the list price and brings them down to the price of a regular toothbrush. It might not be the sexiest deal today but it's a good money saver.

Air fryer deals are back, back, back
Mic check. Hello? Sorry this live blog hasn't been very 'live' this morning, we had some technical issues, now resolved. Now, here at T3, all we ever think about is air fryers. And we know that you, the population of the world, feel the same. The Prime Day air fry deals in the UK are a little disappointing, but T3's resident little chef Rob Jones has one particular air fryer bargain in his sights – it's a Tefal that stirs your food for you and knows when it's ready to serve. The only human input required is to push the odd button, and then eat the results.
Also at a great price is this Instant Pot, which works as both a pressure cooker, slow cooker, oven, yogurt maker etc and etc and an air fryer. At just £130, that is a whole lot of cookin' for not a lot of spendin' money. Instant Pots are always really well made, too.
Crack the code – the discount code
One way to turn every day into Amazon Prime Day is to use an Amazon discount code. Bethan Girder-Maslen and her team of helpful bots have put together an exhaustive list of Amazon voucher codes to help you save money and live you best life. Why, they're the best codes since Da Vinci's!

This deal will make your hair fall out!
IPL machines are great for removing unwanted hair. I used one on my head and now it doesn't grow back: result. If you also want to remove unwanted hair via blasting it with a laser from a kind of depillatory 'ray gun', you're in luck on Amazon Prime Day, because the price has plunged on one of Philips' finest IPL devices – it's now at its lowest ever price!
If you are old-fashioned and prefer to remove hair with a sharp blade instead of with light, Philips and Braun have umpteen deals going on razors, shavers, beard trimmers and so forth. Phew. Things were looking hairy for a moment there, but now everything is going smoothly.
Let's get physical
Matt Kollat, T3's man with the chin-up bar, has 'worked out' what the best fitness deals of Amazon Prime Day are. Worked out. You see?

Shark vac price attack
Shark vacuum cleaners are always on sale, but that's no reason to turn your nose up at a Shark bargain, and this is a particularly good one. The brand's top-rated cylinder vacuum cleaner is half price right now. With Shark's patented anti hair wrap tech, it's great for pet owners, hippies, and anyone else with long hair. There's also a 'Flexology' tube for cleaning under furniture, three cleaning modes and a five-year warranty as standard. Amazon users rate it 4.3 stars out of 5 on average. Pretty good!
- Shark Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner with Anti Hair Wrap was
£300now £150 (opens in new tab) – half price!
Time for a coffee break
Rob Jones has been scouring the virtual shelves of Amazon Prime Day and has found the very cheapest cheap coffee machine deals of Amazon Prime Day. It's quality stuff, mind. Top of the list is Nespresso Vertuo Plus. This turns up on sale so frequently, I rather doubt anyone has ever paid full price for it – and if they have, well, they're idiots. Nonetheless, it's an excellent machine. There are also espresso machines and filter/pour over machines, including one with a grab and go cup that costs just £21 (opens in new tab).
- View all Amazon Prime Day coffee machine deals (opens in new tab)
- Buy Nespresso Vertuo Plus by Krups for just £68 – was £200! (opens in new tab)

Well hello, Halo
There are plenty of game and DVD deals on for Amazon Prime Day but a lot of them are a little bit shit (opens in new tab). Not this one however: Halo Infinite on Xbox Series X and Xbox One, yours for just £15. Take on the Covenant and new and deadly foes as Master Chef, the big, future warrior who's excellent at cooking. Oh wait, he's actually called Master Chief, my mistake.

You rang, sir?
T3's Yasmine Crossland seems determined to upset Amazon on their big (Prime) day. She's keen to buy a video doorbell but not the one made by Amazon's security subsidiary Ring. No, she's down with this Nest Video Doorbell deal – and Nest is the security subsidiary of Google. That should ruffle some feathers at Jeff Bezos' house!
- Buy the Nest Video Doorbell for £125, saving a big £55! (opens in new tab)
Fitbit Versa 2 hits lowest ever price!
Hey, didn't you hear us tell you this about 2 hours ago? Look, we hate to keep going on about this, but the Fitbit Versa 2 is down to its lowest ever price! At just £75, this is an almost insanely good bargain that you would be almost literally stupid to miss out on.
